If you like putting makeup on, the cut crease might be one of the staple looks in your repertoire. You can always achieve totally different effects you can achieve with a cut crease by using less conventional colors, brushes and products. If you are interested in perfecting the cut crease look, you have come to the right place. Let this makeup tutorial guide you into finding the ultimate elegant cut crease makeup look. This smoky cut crease eye-shadow makeup is quite easy to recreate by following these simple steps below.
Before applying any makeup on, choose the right shade of primer for your skin type and apply it to your eyelid. Even though you want the primer to cover your eyelid completely, your best bet is to use a very small amount of it and gently dab it on your eyelid with a foundation brush. Wait a couple of minutes until the primer absorbs. Makeup primer softens the skin, seals the pores, and prepares the skin for the makeup application.
Begin by applying your favourite highlighter across your eyelid. Don’t apply too much, just enough that gives you a clean base to work on. With the help of a small makeup brush and brown shadow, paint a thick line on your cut crease. Gently blend it into the entire crease. For best results, you can use brown pencil to reapply a darker, more precise line on your crease.
Grab another makeup brush and apply light golden shadow just below the cut crease.
Using your black liquid eyeliner, draw a line from the outer corner of your eye up at an angle and work your way through your upper lash line. If your hand feels unsteady, rest your finger on your cheek for extra stability and control.
A great way to further highlight your eyes is by using fake eyelashes. Apply your false eyelashes by placing the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close to your natural lashes as possible. Once the strip is set in place, apply black mascara on your lashes to achieve more natural, glamorous look. This will also help in blending your natural lashes with the false ones. As you can see, perfect looks do not necessary require a lot of time!
