I now present you THE DEEP CREASE.
I’ll be the first to say I’m NOT the first gal to do a pictorial for this shadow technique. It’s probably the most commonly talked about eyeshadow placement. I’ve even seen it called “the proper” way. And while I definitely do not agree that there is a proper way at all, I do think that this one deserves a place in our hearts and in our shadow school. Cause it’s pretty and it looks good on pretty much all humans.
( ^ That’s my “mirror face” I’ve had it since I was a pre-teen. Pout the lips a bit – suck in the nose a bit – deer in the headlight eyes. Listen, I’m not proud of it but after all this time I’ve come to accept it as the person staring back from my in the mirror and in most of my selfies. And just for the record it was around long before I ever even saw Zoolander…although it is dangerously similar to Blue Steel.)
Shadows Photographed: Highlight: Nylon | Midi – Soft Brown | Deep – Smut
Brush is Dalton but it’s out of stock:( This IT Cosmetics one is actually my new favorite though and a perfect replacement! The dual ends make it literally the only brush you need to create any of the looks from all of the shadow techniques I’ve talked about.
Why I love it: It is SO versatile! Depending on the colors you use and the amount of layering it can be very subtle or totally dramatic
Pair it with: Heavy liner, soft liner or no liner. It looks great on all three.
Who it looks fabulous on: It’s pretty great on most eyes! The only thing I would say is if you have wide set eyes (meaning your eyes are far apart) I would drag the “v” all the way around your eye (instead of just the outer corners) so it doesn’t create a wider illusion.
