FOTD #1: Soft Cut Crease

It is raining in this part of the world,  so happy rainy day to you all.

So this is actually the first post of this series.  I had actually  thought this over over,  and over again,  if I want to do this on this blog. I used to do the fotd series on a blog i used to manage before, well *long story*

Today’s  Face Of The Day post is a soft cut crease. We would all agree that cut crease is actually trending nowadays, whether it is a full cut crease,  or a half,  or the one that curves out of the lid or cuts out sharp…

Cut crease is  a technique used to define the crease by “cutting” across it with a contrasting eyeshadow color and little to no blending.

For this look I decided to create something or a look that can be worn even in the day,  thereby I had to make the ‘cut’ on the crease soft against the normal ones we see on instagram these days.

    I read this post thrice because I wanted to understand what you meant by the cut crease.
    I sincerely still don’t understand what you did to make the cut on the crease soft. Maybe I should see the video, yes?
    All I can see is your pointy nose…pretty!
