Step by Step Cut Crease Smoky Eye

3 years ago

Here are some simple steps to create cut crease smokey eye look.

1) Start with primed eye lids. You can add a taupe or lighter coloured shadow to the lids or leave them bare. Use a dark brown or black eye liner to trace the crease and curve the line along the edge toward your lash line. You should end up with an exaggerated `c` or backwards `c` shape - like the picture. It`s better to use blendable eyeliners for this since they don`t drag on delicate skin on your lids.

2) Take a small pencil brush and a dark brown or grey shadow and use it to fill the space between the `c` and the outer corner of your. eye Make sure to use the shadow to soften the liner on the top lashes and to bring the colour towards the bottom lashes. Also pull the colour into the crease to soften the liner, blending the colour outwards.

3) Use a highlight shade underneath the brows. If need be, use the highlight blend the shadow outwards. It should create a gradient, not a harsh distinction.

4) Use a paddle brush and the original taupe colour, or a shadow similar tho your skin colour along the inner edge if need be. It will soften the lines a little bit.

5) Use a clean blending brush to blend out the outer corner and lower lash line as needed. Smoky eye is all about the soft look - no harsh lines!

6) Use a dark black liner to line the inner rim and tightline. To help set the liner and prevent it from smudging, you can set it with a eye shadow. Simply take a flat brush like and angle liner brush, dip it into black eye shadow and pat it on top of the liner. Don`t drag it, or you will irritate your eyes and smudge the liner.

7) You can add false lashes or simply curl your lashes and apply your favourite mascara.

Good luck!
