How To Do Cut Crease Eyemakeup
Cut-crease eye makeup is very popular on the runways. Dramatic cut crease eye makeup is one of the techniques that require lot of patience and a very steady professional hand.
What exactly is the cut crease eye makeup technique?
Like the name says, you “cut” the crease of the eye with a sharp line of bold intense color. The technique is used to the give the eyes a really dramatic, defined crease.
As I said, this is not a very easy look and needs a steady hand. When done right the look is absolutely stunning, but if gone wrong, it can make you look hideous and hilarious.
So today I’ll be guiding you on how to achieve a flawless cut-crease makeup look.
What you will need:-
- Eye primer:- So that cut crease eye makeup remains creaseless.
- Brushes:- Right brushes can create expert application and add the edgy finish to the cut crease eye makeup.
- Range of shades you want to work with.
- Gel liner.
- Prime eyes.
- Apply the medium shade of eye shadow all over your lid.
- Now take bold gel eyeliner or the darkest shadow on your pallet and sketch a V-shape starting from the crease in the middle of your eye and connecting to the outer corner of your eye. Keep your eyes open when applying the crease shade. It creates the illusion of a crease and thus helps you to know the exact crease area.
- Then comes blending. Start blending and diffusing the crease line upward toward your eyebrows. Pay attention, the crease color shouldn’t come down to the lid. Blend well but also maintain the weight of the line in the crease.
- You can also add some more color, matte or shimmery, to blend the line you created.
- Apply eyeliner. For eyeliner, you can go for a simple one or wing it out for the extra drama.
- Run the same medium colored eye shadow you used on your eyelids along your lower lash line for another subtle pop of color.
- Highlight brow bones and inner corners of your eye.
- You can either apply heavy strokes of kajal if you want your eyes to be even more dramatic. But for a subtle lower lash line skip kajal and apply a light wash of the dark colored eye shadow.
- Finish off with oodles of mascara.
If you haven’t applied kajal on your lower lashline, yet want to make it stand out then mascara to line lower lash line is the trick. Just take out your mascara and start super close on your lower lash line. Touch the waterline as you apply mascara on your lower lashes. By doing this you are applying mascara on your lower lashes as well as lining your lower lash line
So, that’s it. A little tougher than what we usually do, but nothing impossible, right? With practice one can achieve this look very effortlessly.
