Hey my beautiful ladies! If you’re not familiar with the term “cut crease,” just google the word and you will find hundreds of tutorials for this eye look. Just as the name describes, it’s a technique (popularized by the Kardashians, of course) that contrasts eye-shadow color in the crease of your eye for a sharp, defined look. The cut crease technique is done by sweeping a contrasting shadow color across the indent of the lid, which ends up making the eye area look bigger and more emphasized. The cut crease makeup works best for those with deep set, hooded or small eyes, as well as other eye shapes.
Creating a cut crease isn’t terribly complicated. You don’t need a special tool or expensive product, just your go-to eye shadow palette, a blending brush, and some patience. However, the cut crease makeup is one of those techniques that require the instructions of a professional, so if you want to learn how to achieve it, check out the pictures and the step-by-step makeup tutorials that I gathered for you my ladies. Follow closely and you’ll learn the technique in no time!
When it comes to cut-creasing you can be experimental and use a combination of shadows from the same colour palette, but always remember to use the lighter tones on the lid and the darkest shade in the crease of your eyes.
