Orange Cut Crease FOTD or 'How Many Times Can You Use the Same 4 Colours in a Look'...

I won't have any other products to play with for the next week at least so any FOTD's/EOTD's that I do in the mean time will use all the same products. Hopefully you won't get too bored!

For today's look I decided to attempt a somewhat dramatic cut crease look. I used my NARS Taj Mahal blush as an eyeshadow again but you can easily substitute another orange shade such as MAC Rule eyeshadow.

To get the look:
I first primed my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion
I then patted NARS Taj Mahal blush on to my lid to just above my crease
I applied some MAC Blonde's Gold Pigment to the inner part of my lid and around my tear duct
I then took some Blue Heaven Kajal liner on to to an eyeliner brush and drew in a crease just above my natural crease. I also used it to line my waterline
I took a smudge brush and lightly smudged the colour upwards.
After this I took some NYX Dark Brown eyeshadow on a crease brush and went over the liner.
I blended out the edge of the crease colour with my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural and applied a highlight.
I lined my top lashline with NYX Studio Effect Liquid Liner in Extreme Black and applied Loreal Voluminous mascara to my lashes.
I finished up by cleaning up the look with some concealer.

Being stuck with such a limited amount of products got me wondering, if you could only use 3 eyeshadows for the rest of your life, which one's would you pick?

Let me know below!


  1. So pretty. I don't know how to do the whole 'cut the crease' thing. I don't even really know what it
    If I could only use 3 shadows, they would have to be MAC's Orb, Soft Brown and Club, but that would really suck!

  2. oh my, that is stunning!!! I am definitely stealing the look from you & wearing it on the weekend! I can't believe how good that NYX liner looks, too. Hm. Interesting :)

  3. so pretty, i am so glad you are showing your face now.

    ps: i have a great giveaway going on if you are interested in picking out some new make-up/haircare! check it out!

    love, rach.

  4. Thanks Alicia. Lol it took me a while to figure it out too and as far as I can tell, it seems to just mean having a really defined crease colour.

    Good choices! Orb is still on my 'to buy' list. But you're right, a world with only 3 shadow choices would suck ;)

    Y: Thanks! The NYX liner is amazing and this is coming from a liquid liner addict! It's better than most of the high end ones I own and for the price it's amazing :)

    Thanks Rach :)

    Thanks so much Sandra :)

  5. Ooh how clever are you Ahalya! Your skintone is gorgeous and you can really pull it off.
