How To: Lilac Cut Crease Eyeshadow | ABH Modern Renaissance Palette

January 27, 2017

If you haven't tried out cut-creasing, you really really really ought to! Personally, it is my FAVORITE go-to look. Cut-creasing is a genius  eyeshadow technique that brings so much depth and dimension to the eyes. You must've seen this makeup trend flourish all over Instagram. Well ofcourse, it was popularized by Kim Kardashian...

The main concept that outlines cut creasing is the application of a lighter shade on the lid and a darker shade on your lid crease. It basically plays with a low and high contrast which fades on the brow bone. It sure does need a little practice to perfect. However, you can play and create endless eyeshadow looks once you get the hang of it and master the concept. 

There are so many different ways to achieve the cut-crease. I have done a simple and edgy look using the Modern Renaissance Palette, any concealer/foundation and an eyeliner

Here is a step by step guide of the lilac cut crease eyeshadow I created. Hope you guys like it! ♥

  • Prep and Prime your eyes
Start off by applying a primer over your lids to increase the longevity of the eyeshadows. I use the MAC prep + prime 24 hour extend eye base, and as the name goes it literally does prolong the eye makeup look to upto 24 hours. 

  • Work above your lid 
Next, apply Tempera right under the brow (aka the brow bone). By the end of the look you'll see how much of a pop it gives to the entire look. Then I applied Warm Taupe on the crease, which is a taupe brown shade with a matte finish, perfect to give a smokey look and definition to your eyes. Blend it well with a fluffy brush.

  • Time to crease it up 
Using an angled brush apply Buon Fresco on the crease, not on the entire eyelid and then extend it slightly upwards as if you were winging an eyeliner. Using a fluffy brush blend out that line. Isn't the purple-mauve/ lilac pigment just beautiful? 😍

  • Cut the crease
This is the step which will bring together the cut crease look. On your lid, apply a concealer of your skin tone (or a shade lighter preferably for this look). I have used the LA girl pro HD concealer in the shade creamy beige. If you do not have a concealer, you can use a foundation. I then lightly tapped golden ochre on the lid for a warm yellow undertone. Wing it as well!

  • The final step
Now (for real), I wing the upper lash line with the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner and apply a dash of your favorite mascara. I'm using the Sephora outrageous volume mascara. Complete the look with kohl on your lower lash line. 

And there you have it, a stunning cut crease eye makeup which can compliment all skin tones, eye color and every occasion.
