How to: Double Cut Crease

How to: Double Cut Crease

I’m a huge fan of a cut crease, they’re very glam and make my slightly hooded eyes a little less droopy looking. Recently though I’ve been seeing a lot of double cut creases floating around the Internet so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s not as tricky as it looks so for anyone wanting to recreate the look here is a little pictorial:

To start off apply a base colour all over the lid right up to the eyebrow. You want the base shadow to be a colour similar to your skin tone, this won’t add anything to the look but it helps with blending in the next steps.

Once the base is down draw in the rough shape with a soft brown shadow (or whichever colour you are using). This doesn’t have to be too neat as it will be blended and tidied up later.

Now blend the top line with a fluffy brush. Reapply and blend again. Keep doing this until you are happy with the depth of the line and it’s blended out into nothing at the brow.

Now we want to sharpen up the bottom line as it can have softened a little during blending. Take a Q-tip and some micellar water and redefine the shape.

Now take the colour that you want to be in the middle. I used a white gel eyeliner and filled the entire eyelid up to the line just created. You can however use another shadow, a coloured liner or glitter for this stage. If you’re using a glitter or a deep colour though, don’t fill the whole eyelid, just draw a line directly under the line you have just created.

Now you want to draw in the shape again. Draw a line where you want your second crease to be.

Now fill in the eyelid again. I used a gold shadow but you can use literally any colour imaginable.

As you can see it’s starting to come together now. At this stage add liner, the wing should hide the ends of the three colours. Again this doesn’t need to be perfect just yet.

Now add glitter over the gold. Once the glitter has been applied it can fall over the liner wing you’ve just created so using an angled brush push a black eyeshadow over the line to hide any glitter fallout.

Finish the eye makeup with mascara and fill the eyebrows.

Complete the look with false lashes. This is a dramatic look so go big or go home I say!

And there you have the completed look! I wish I’d gone a little darker and more defined in the upper crease but over all I’m pretty happy with it! It’s a fab look for a party or a night out with the girls.
