Will Crease Eyeshadow Ever Catch On?

Clearly, we're all for runway makeup that's new and different: It's one of the best sources of inspiration for our own weirdo beauty looks. But, there's one somewhat reoccurring, yet totally unique, runway beauty trend that hasn't caught on with us normals yet: Crease eyeshadow. Except for Rita Ora, who doesn't count as a normal anyway, we have yet to see anyone on the street casually wearing this super-pretty, avant-garde makeup look. Perhaps it's not destined for practicality.
But, when we saw this crease shape at Anthony Vaccarello's spring '14 show, we thought we'd revisit the wearability of the look. It's like a cat-eye, but in the negative space around where the cat-eye would normally be drawn. We're loving how the soft gray line gradually fades towards the model's inner corners, making it way more wearable than your average runway geometric eyeshadow shape (not that anything about that is average, but you get the point).

So readers, what we're saying is, we want to know what you think. Would you line your crease the name of exploratory beauty? (Style.com)
