Cutting the Crease

Friday, October 1, 2010

Two things I learned from this experiment - creating a cut crease look isn't as hard as I initially thought and trials are always a good thing. Because if I'd done this on two eyes I would have be annoyed as it's not quite right and for the time it took to do one, two 'not quite rights' might have sent me over the edge.

I'd had the idea to create an even bolder version of my TNX look for some time but I hadn't quite worked out how I wanted that to look. Finally I was looking at a video from YouTube's Queen of Blending and it occurred to me that doing something bright, something that just incorporated all the colors I liked regardless of what 'should' go together, would be exactly what I wanted.

I know the product list look like a lot, but once I tallied up everything I'd dabbled in and patted here or there (since I was just winging it) it was kind of more than usual. I can say that I want the final product to not involve so much - we'll see how that goes....
