How to Create a Cut Crease with Eyeshadow

So, you’re scrolling down your Instagram feed and you come across a stunning cut crease eye look that has you rushing to your vanity so you can blend up the same look. As you sit down you realize you’re not sure how to create a cut crease with eyeshadow… No worries, you’re not alone! Cut creases take lots of practice so we’re here to blend it out for you!

Create a Cut Crease with Eyeshadow

You don’t need to be a makeup expert to create your own cut crease! Just follow this step by step cut crease makeup look guide to create your own masterpiece.

Step 1: Primer

Priming your eyes before any eye look is key! Take your favorite primer and tap it all over your lids to prevent any smudging and creasing.

Step 2: Define Your Crease

Cut-creases are all about creating a super defined and bold crease. After you’ve primed your eyes take a transition shade and focus it into your crease. Once you’ve applied your transition shade you can start adding darker shades in the same color hue to deepen your crease! Blend those shades and wing them out using a crease brush like the M454 Detailed Crease Brush.

Step 3: Cutting the Crease

Cutting your crease is arguably the most difficult but most important step! The key here is having a quality, flat concealer/packing brush like the M124 Firm Shadow Brush from our April MorpheMe collection. Take your eye primer or concealer using your brush and draw a line along your crease and fill in the rest of your lid.

Step 4: Add Color to the Eyelids

Once you’ve carved your crease, you can either top that concealer/primer on your lids with a matte eyeshadow or a shimmer! You can also take your cut crease look to the next level by adding a glamorous winged liner before you add your lashes and mascara.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

So now that you completed the hardest portion of the look, take the same shades you used in your crease and apply them to your lower lash line using the M506 Tapered Mini Blender Brush to complete the look.
