Did I Just Do a Cut-Crease on My Hooded Eyes? Probably not, but then again maybe it is considered a cut-crease?
Makeup Wars is back after a short break over the Summer and we wanted to share our favorite Fall looks for you. I had another post in mind but after watching this video I decided I needed to suck it up and try out a cut-crease.
Better late than never.
Back in June I reviewed the Urban Decay Born to Run Collection. I wasn’t totally in love with the palette. I didn’t hate it but I guess I expected to love the performance on ALL of the shades vs. only loving half of them.
Since then I’ve been a little stressed and feeling bad because it seemed like I was the only person other than Samantha Ravndahl that wasn’t over the moon in love with this entire palette. I’ve been wanting to try it again and this was the perfect opportunity. I’m in love with the end result!

FACE: Too Faced Hangover Face Primer // Dior Fix It Colour in Apricot // NYX HD Photo Concealer Wand in Green // Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation in Cheesecake // Tarte Shape Tape in Light Medium // IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealing Pot in Medium // IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder in Translucent // Benefit Blush in GALifornia // Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
EYES: Urban Decay Primer Potion // MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly // Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer in L5 (to cut the crease) // Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette – Riff (transition & to blend out the cut crease), Punk (outer V), Smog (over concealer on the lid and through crease, leaving just the top of the cut crease open & smudged under lower lash line), Good As Gone (traced over the top of the cut crease), Stranded (inner corner), Weekender (under brow bone) // Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in Pomme de Pin (upper lash line) // Anastasia Beverly Hills Metallic Luster Liner in Liquid Gold (lower waterline) // Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stash (lower lash liner) // NARS Climax Mascara (upper lashes) // Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara (lower lashes)
LIPS: Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow
The trick was basically to just blend all of the shades together lightly and a lot with your brushes to diffuse every shade into the other to give a nice gradient vs. a harsh line.
I hated the look until I was done with it so don’t get frustrated! This was my FIRST ATTEMPT EVER. It’s only up from here, right?
As for UD Born to Run there are still some shades that I’m not on board with. But I am more amped about making the shades I do love work to where I can wear them more often.
