Something that I’ve been wanting to master…

…the cut crease technique!!! In my opinion, this is one of the hardest things to do. I took notice to Nireyna’s pencil technique years ago, and I was intrigued! It’s not easy to do, though. It requires a lot of patience, precision and blending.  Another problem I have is since it’s a PENCIL technique…I have issues with using a pencil. I find that the pencil drags the skin of my eyelid too much, and I don’t really feel comfortable with that. I started off by using MAC’s eye pencil in Ebony. I’m thinking that maybe I need a softer pencil, such as an eye kohl or something. I like using fluidlines to cut the crease. I just need more practice. The only way that I will get good at anything is practicing!

I started off practicing by doing a look today using some bright colors. Oh yea, and I started wearing foundation again. I missed wearing it for some reason. Habit? Most likely…
