Subtle Cut Crease and Angled Lower Liner
There was a look posted on the QC Facebook page that featured a cut crease and an angled lower liner. I decided to recreate my own version of the eye using different colors to create a softer look. Here is the finished look…
Follow along with this step by step tutorial:
Step 1 – Start with a clean, primed eyelid. Apply a pink/gold shadow all over the lid.
Step 2 – Blend a dark brown shadow into the outer corner, softening into the crease.
Step 3 – Take a smaller tapered brush and drag the dark brown shadow in a fine line along your natural crease. Soften and blend up towards to brow. This is called a cut crease technique. What we have created today is a soft cut crease. To make your cut crease more pronounced draw a very dark distinct line through the crease with a smaller brush.
Step 4 – Deepen the outer corner by blending in a black shadow into the very outer edge.
Step 5 – Take a makeup wipe and carve a sharp, defined line out of the shadow.
Step 6 – Apply liquid liner to the upper lash line. Take a fine point liner brush and create a mirrored reflection of the liner on the upper lash line. Soften and blend down.
Step 7 – Take a white liquid liner and accentuate the two winged lines you have created by applying it between them, using outward strokes.
Step 8 – Apply mascara and lashes and there you have it!
Since I used a pinky gold shadow as my base I chose to finish the look with a soft pink lip and cheek. When wearing such a bold statement eye, you don’t want it to get lost among bright brush and a dark lip. I chose to make my eyes the focus by playing down the rest of my features. I highlighted my face using something with a gold undertone to complement the eye!
Hope this helped you guys out and you were able to recreate this look yourself!
