  2. The application of the black is just perfection, love the little winged shape at the outer V. The bright green on the lower lashline contrasts so well with the neutralish greens on the lid, overall, I just LOVE this look!

    Thank you! I love doing this type of sharp crease, I just don't do it very often at all. I think last time I did it was for Halloween...

  6. Beautiful! The way you shaded your crease is really interesting.. is there any particular technique you use to make it sharp and precise like that?

  9. Phyrra,
    Thanks. I like doing that sometimes. :-)

    Kim,
    Thank you. :-) I use the Coastal Scents pink crease brush which is fluffy and tapered to a point. So I apply the black lightly, starting in the outer corner of the eye area, keeping the point of the brush aimed into the crease and gently sweeping back and forth until I get the look I want. You can soften the edges by using a blending brush. I hope that makes sense. If not, I may be able to do a picture tutorial to show how I do it, if you'd like. :-D

    Melissa,
    Thank you! :-)

    Heather,
