Soft Cut Crease

Hello! I hope November has been treating everybody well so far. 

Here's something a little different than the style that I'm normally more inclined to stick too. I've always loved the cut crease look but it's just not something that I would normally choose to wear myself, so I thought I'd experiment with it today. 

I wasn't sure how this would turn out as I didn't really know where I was going with it, so I decided to just stick with neutrals until I'd seen the outcome. I was quite happy with how it eventually turned out, and now I'm definitely more inspired to try this look again using colour and possibly glitters! 

Excuse any weird lighting in this photograph - it's so hard to get a decent shot when it starts going dark at 3:00PM!

  1. Wow! That is just beautiful! Makes me want to look into these Motives shadows!

    1. Thank you! I would definitely recommend looking into Motives - they are terrific.

  2. This is absolutely stunning! I wish I had your skills! I wouldn't even know where to start... urgh! And YES! Why does it get dark at 3 now?! I hate it! I'm not a morning person, I find it so hard to get decent lighting now! haha x x x

    1. You have some amazing skills yourself, Georgia! I'm sure this would be a breeze for you. And ohh, it's horrible, isn't it?! I'm exactly the same, I more often than not take my photos in the afternoon and it's so hard in winter!
