I saw the turquoise cut crease eyeshadow look on Emily Ratajkowski attending Met Gala, and it clicked with me. I have a cobalt blue liner that was screaming “wear me!” from the bottom of my eyeliner drawer. That’s why I ended up using similar colors to create a cut crease eyeshadow tutorial.
To create this cut crease look, I used:
- Korres Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturiser
- Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation in Y225 Marble
- Clarins Instant Light Brush-On Perfector Concealer in Light Beige
- Eve by Eve’s Mattifying HD Loose Powder
- Clare Blanc Mineral Brow Powder in 803 About Brown
- Clare Blanc Eyeshadows in the shades 850 Coral Rose and 867 Royal Burgundy
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
- Clare Blanc Luminizing Mineral Powder in 22 Be Mine
- Elizabeth Arden 24HR Liquid Eyeliner in the shade Electric Blue
- Smith & Cult Lash Dance Mascara
- Clare Blanc Mineral Blush in 707 Japanese Cherry
- Elizabeth Arden Illuminating Liquid Highlighter in Golden Kiss
- Elizabeth Arden Liquid Lipstick in the shade 08 Passionate Peach
How to Do Cut Crease? Step-by-step Tutorial
Time needed: 30 minutes.
Start by applying your favorite primer and a foundation. My current favorite combo is Korres Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturiser and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation. I apply the primer with my hands and use a pink beauty blender to apply foundation.
The next step is a concealer. My current favorite high-end concealer is Clarins Instant Light Brush-On Perfector Concealer. It’s a lightweight luminous product that is perfect for the days when you want the under eye area to look flawless and natural.
Usually, I apply a few dots of a product on a selected area and blend it with my micro-mini beauty blender.
Remember the rule of combining makeup textures? Since we applied a creamy concealer, it’s essential to set it with a powder. For this look, I used Eve by Eve’s Mattifying HD Loose Powder that I received in my February’s GlossyBox. It’s a slightly pigmented powder that helps to eliminate the under-eye discoloration.
For my brows, I decided to think outside the box and picked Clare Blanc Mineral Brow Powder. It turned out to be a bit lighter shade than I expected. I used a two-sided brow brush first to brush eyebrow hair with a spoolie and then fill them in with an angled brush.
- Eye Makeup
For eye makeup, I decided to use mineral eye shadows by Clare Blanc in the shades Coral Rose and Royal Burgundy.
First, I applied a rose shade onto my crease and spent a good few minutes blending the eyeshadow to create a luminous transition.
Then, I followed with a burgundy shade to emphasize the outer corner of the eye. Finally, I took a bigger blending brush to mix two shades.
- Cut Crease
To create a cut crease, I decided to use an eyeshadow Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Using a brush that comes with a primer, I made a line on my crease and filled in this shape, moving towards eyelashes.
- Fill-in the Crease
To make the cut crease even more standout, I filled in the area that I prepped in the step before with Clare Blanc Luminizing Mineral Powder. I used a small flat brush to ensure that I do not move outside of the cut crease line created with the primer.
For eyeliner, I used a gorgeous cobalt blue liquid liner by Elizabeth Arden. I guess you’ll agree based on these photos that the pigmentation of this product is fantastic. I have to add that the product features a brush that is super easy to work with.
For lashes, I used Smith & Cult Lash Dance Mascara, which is perfect if you are looking to create a voluminous lash effect.
- False Lashes
To emphasize the cobalt blue eyeliner, even more, I decided to put on false lashes by Ardell.
Moving back to the cheek makeup, I applied a baby pink mineral blush by Clare Blanc using my favorite blush brush by Luxie.
For highlighter, I used a new liquid highlighter by Elizabeth Arden in the shade Golden Kiss. I applied using a mini beauty blender designed for contouring.
To finish the look, I used a liquid lipstick by Elizabeth Arden Liquid Lipstick in the shade 08 Passionate Peach. It’s been my go-to product as I’m obsessed with this gorgeous shade of peachy beige.
