- About Cut Crease
I wanted to try out cut crease technique that seems to be so popular. I was avoiding it, because my eyes are slightly hooded and not the most symmetrical, so anything that requires precision and harsh edges can look messy on my eyes. But I want to improve my skills, so after a few tries, I finally have a look that I am satisfied with. It's a more pink purple look with fierce liner.


I started this eye look by applying light matte peach shade in the crease and a bit above. Then I took light matte rose shade and applied it a bit lower, more just in the actual crease. In the outer corner of the eye I put matte redish pink shade.


I used concealer to carve out that cut crease shape. Over it I applied shimmery light mauve shade. I'm a newbie at doing this, so I went a bit too out on the corners. But you can fix this by applying more of that transition shade in the outer corner. I also put in the corner a bit of matte purple to deepened it. Some got stuck to the concealer and I tried to blend it out as much as possible, but it was a bit difficult. I paired this look with a bold black winged eyeliner.


This look could use some false lashes, but you know me, I prefer to do it without. So I just applied lots of mascara and hoped for some definition. On the lower lash line I used the same matte shades, keeping darker ones at the outer corner. In the inner corner of the eyes I applied shimmery rose highlighter.


I actually really like the contrast of darker matte corners and sparkly cut crease on the inner part of the eye. It looks even prettier in real life, although I'm not sure about that cut crease shape. As someone that has slightly hooded eyes this doesn't always look the best. I figured that going above your natural crease makes it stand out more.


On my face I used a mixture of BB cream and foundation, higher coverage concealer and powder. I also applied bronzer, rosy blush and shimmery rose highlighter to make it more monochrome.

On the lips I used a mixture of peach pink and warm brown matte lipstick shades.




Eyes are quite bold, but in a way feel romantic because of the pinks, corals and purples. I love a good wing with these kind of looks, because it adds definition to the look. The rest of my face is more neutral, so the focus is on the eyes. Have you tried cut crease looks? I'm curious how it worked out for your eye shape.
