My Very 1st Cut Crease Look 12/27/14

Hi everyone!  The greatest bit of advice I can give about applying makeup is very simple but very complex: Blend it out.  The process of blending can be very time consuming and frustrating even.  However, it leads to the most beautiful and complimentary looks imaginable.  There are many ways to blend: circular motions, side-to-side motions, up-and-down motions...  The possibilities are endless.  The best part is when you're done, you're able to step back and look at the masterpiece you created.  This brings me to the look of the day.  In order to create this cut crease, I had to spend quite some time blending and adding color and blending again.  It was not the easiest task, honestly, but I am very proud of the finished result.  Overall, I really enjoyed being able to really play with my makeup and doing something out of the ordinary.  I hope you guys like it, too.
