Step by Step Guide on How to Do Two Amazing Cut Crease Looks

Posted by Jenny Yu on

The greatest thing about cut creases is that it makes your eyes look bigger and sexier, especially with small, hooded, or deep set eyes. Even if you don’t have small eyes, you can play them up as well and give it a grander look.

This eye makeup can be absolutely stunning as long as you do it correctly. If you haven’t tried it yet, prepared to be patient and it will take a few times to get it right.

For the fall season, I would suggest neutral colors because they match the warm colors of the season. You can also choose dark browns and maroon shades as well.

Cut Crease Look 1

Apply primer and highlight Step 1
Start out your look by applying primer on your lid to ensure that your makeup stays put. Then apply your base shadow to your lid and use a white highlight on the inner corners of your eye and on the brow bone.
Draw a v-shape to help shape the cut crease Step 2
Draw a V-shape from the crease in the middle to the outer corner of your eye, making the line thicker on the outer corner and thinner on the inner corner.

Blend out your eyeliner toward the outer corner of your eye using an eye shader brush. While doing this, try to keep the bottom of your cut crease a clean, sharp line.
