FOTD: Half Cut Crease

 

Half Cut Crease

Half Cut Crease

It rained today! – hence, the beanie. Most of you on the east coast probably aren’t as excited as I am about the rain, but I am not looking forward to water rationings (is that a word?) and higher utility bills, so YAY for rain!

Anyhoo! On to today’s look: a half cut crease! I got the idea for this look from BatALashBeauty‘s youtube channel. I love all of Sam’s videos, she is hilarious and super talented so if you are looking for a laugh with your beauty tips, you should check her out! Also, she has a blog that can be found here.

This look is fairly easy to do, though I found the precise way you have to blend a little difficult. I think it came out pretty good for my first try though! It turns out fairly dramatic, so this may be more appropriate for a night out.
