Easy Cut Crease Tutorial
What you’ll need
- An eye shadow primer – I use Urban Decay Primer Potion
- An eye shadow palette – This time I used Urban Decay Vice Ltd Reloaded (see my previous review here) but any shadows will work, even a basic light to dark shadow quad.
- Full coverage concealer – I use Mac Pro Longwear
- Eyeliner – I used Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
- A fluffy crease brush – I use Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease
- A small detail brush – I use Zoeva 238 Luxe Precision Shader or Real Techniques Detailer Brush
- A large flat brush – I use Sigma E60 Large Shader
- A pencil brush – I use Zoeva 230 Luxe Pencil or Sigma E30 Pencil
Easy Cut Crease
- Define your crease, starting with a transition shade and deepening with a darker colour
- Carve out your ‘cut crease’ using concealer, flick it out at the end; make sure you can see the crease line when your eye is open
- Cover the remainder of your lid with concealer
- Cover the concealer area with a light coloured shadow, you can also use a slightly darker colour on the outer corner
- Add an eyeliner wing following the flick of your crease
- Conceal your under eye, tidying up any smudging or fall out; make sure your wing is very crisp
- Use your darkest crease colour to smoke out your lower lash line
- Highlight your inner corner

This method will work with any colour scheme you choose. Another of my favourites is this pink/purple cut crease which I created using the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette:
Let me know if you try this method, I’d love to see your results.
