Purple Cut Crease Tutorial – Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year

Happy #BEAUTYMONDAY! I had a very low key weekend with my hubby this weekend and spent a lot of time prepping for my birthday styled shoot I’m doing today with Erin Stubblefield (it’s going to be gorgeous – I cannot wait). She does most of my blog style shots and so the opportunity to collaborate again on something so fun is going to be fabulous. I’m turning 23 in 12 days and I’m totally counting down. Forget about 12 days of Christmas — IT’S THE 12 DAYS OF BIRTHDAY MONTH. I decided to do this look to celebrate Pantone’s 2018 color of the year – Ultra Violet. It turned out slightly more pink than I anticipated but I loved the look so much that I am rolling with it anyways. It can be done with any combination of colors – it’s the technique that counts! Let’s go ahead and dive in:

Purple Cut Crease Tutorial - Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year

I honestly wasn’t the BIGGEST fan of Pantone’s 2018 color of the year when it first came out – it seems flat and kind of boring so instead of doing a look with traditionally matching colors to the Pantone look, I chose some pretty colors that coordinate with the color and flatter my skin tone and eye color!

  12. Cristina | 8th Jan 18

    I love cut crease, but every single time I try to do it I fail. Not sure if my eyelids are weird or I’m just a moron and I’m doing it wrong.

    • Taylor Mobley | 8th Jan 18

      It took me SO LONG to get this to look semi acceptable. It just takes practice!

  13. Stephanie | 8th Jan 18

    This look seriously could not be any prettier. I’m naturally drawn to purple shades since they accent my dark chocolate-brown eyes! I gotta try this cut-crease look out soon!

  14. Beth | 8th Jan 18

    I love the purple on you! Fabulous! I’m not sure about this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. I think it looks great sometimes and other times not so much.

    • Taylor Mobley | 8th Jan 18

      I totally agree. That’s why I went with colors similar instead of the exact color.
