Whatever that means.

Cut creases run rampant in beauty communities. The epitome of strong eyes; bold and beautiful and found on multiple Instagram pages. With the suggestion of my cousins, I decided to do one myself. Wearing a strong cut crease with a bold lip.

So how did it go?

Going out of my comfort zone for this tutorial. I focused on a creating a full-face to suit the grandeur of such eyes. I write sarcastically.

While I'm not necessarily a fan of cut creases, I can understands its appeal. A unique look that screams makeup expert. I prefer smokey eyes than cut creases. I find them challenging which made filming this look all the more fun.

Thank you so much to my cousins for filming this look. A home video, they jokingly called it. As video editors who enjoy editing, maybe they'll help me edit all this footage that made it late. Hopefully, there will be more videos with different backgrounds than just a white curtain. 

So have you ever tried a cut crease?
