Do you have concerns about the appearance of your eyes, thinking that they look too small or don’t have the right shape? Learning how to do cut crease eyeshadows can make all of the difference for you and actually looks great on just about everyone. With proper guidance, you can use this technique for day and night looks.
What is exactly is the cut crease? This style of eye makeup uses some of the same basic tricks that have been used throughout the history of eye shadows. However, certain lines are more defined and additional colors provide a more dramatic look that defined the eyes even further.
If you want your makeup to look great, you need to invest in high-quality brushes and applicators. Otherwise, you will have difficulty controlling the color. Likewise, you need eyeshadows with good color saturation and staying ability to prevent fading.
The first step should always be to applying an eye shadow base. The primer should extend from your lash line up to the eyebrow. Make sure that you have even coverage for your entire lid, including the outer and inner areas.
The base works as a primer and helps to hold all of your shadow in place. You should always use it, no matter what style of makeup you intend to wear that day.
You will need to choose the colors for this bold look. Most experts recommend beginning with neutral tones until you get the hang of it. Fortunately, that still gives you plenty of colors to choose from. Once you are more experienced, you can widen your pigment choices.
A small, angled brush should be used to apply a dark color along the desired crease line. Now you will choose a slightly lighter color to blend a bit over the top, with a bit more on the outer lids than the inner. You might want to use a shimmering shadow for this.
Next, the lightest color of your shadows should be used to brighten up the inner corner of your eyes. Don’t attempt to blend it into the others. You want the contrast created by placing the darkest and lightest colors next to each other. Complete that area of the lid with a light color that looks nice with the lightest.
A nice tone to highlight under the brow and you have learned how to do cut crease eyeshadows right at home. While the number of shadows needed can seem a bit daunting at first, they each serve a special purpose to create the stunning look.
Many women complete this look with cat’s eyes liner. You can do that or stick to your own design, following up with a coordinating mascara and a good eyebrow shape to complete the new eye look.
The cut crease look is stunning for virtually everyone and can be worn for business or pleasure. Start with a neutral color palette or explore with your current collection of shadows. Either way, you are going to appreciate the way this technique makes your eyes stand out!
