I did a wonderful pink look for you for Team Pink eye! I think this is the best cut crease I’ve ever done. I really love the colors I used and hopefully you will too!
To begin, I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I then applied Buxom Smoky Eye stick in 5″ Stiletto to ‘cut the crease,’ keeping my eyes open so that the color could be seen. I used a tiny shade brush to apply Sugarpill Tako to the inner v and inner lid and inner crease. I then used another tiny shade brush to apply Aromaleigh Fanclub to the middle of the lid, blending inwards. Directly on the outside of Fanclub, I applied a bit of Sweet Treat Cupcake, and on the outer lid I applied Rockeresque Misshapes. Then I started working on the crease by applying Sugarpill Poison Plum directly on top of 5″ Stiletto, and then blending it upwards. I worked at this slowly because I wanted to fade the color out as it went upwards. I used a bit of the BH Cosmetics 88 Matte palette in matte raspberry at the upper edge of the crease shade. I then used Tako on the browbone. Where Tako and the matte raspberry shade meet, I used Fanclub and then blended. I added Fanclub to the middle lower lash line, Sugarpill Hysteric to the outer lower lash line and Poison Plum at the very edge of the lower lash line. I added a touch of Lost in Makeup Land Summer Poodle directly under the eyebrows. I defined my brows with MAC Blackberry. I used Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Liner in 13 Matte black along the upper lash line, winged out a bit. I used a tiny bit of Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Liner in 9 Iridescent Fuchsia at the outer upper lash line. I didn’t like how it looked, so I ended up putting more Fanclub on top of it. I used a bit of NARS Via Veneto along the outer lower waterline and Urban Decay’s Yeyo along the inner lower waterline. I then curled my lashes with UD’s lash curler. My attempt at mascara sucked. I tried 3 different mascaras before I gave up.

You can see how, even with my eye open, the crease color is above my eyeball. Since I have hooded eyes, I wanted the color visible, which is why I used this color placement.
I put in Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink hair extensions for fun for a few of the pictures.
