this is the first pictorial that I’ve done so I hope you guys find it informative! I’ve gotten a lot of requests for videos and youtube tutorials and I definitely am aiming to start those soon but for now here is a pictorial on a basic cut-crease look that I love to do! You can obviously substitute the colors and use whatever colors you prefer!
For this look I used the Sigma Beauty “Smoke Screen” palette.
Step 1. I use an angled brush to create a line just above my natural crease. I used the shade “Thunderhead”. This makes my crease appear larger and overall it makes the cut-crease look much more defined.
Step 2. I then use a smaller blending brush to blend out the “Thunderhead” shade and I also added the shade “Haze”.
Step 3. I am now using a pencil brush to pack in the darker color “Almost Jet” and “Atmosphere” to the crease to define it much more.
Step 4. Using a flat fluffier brush I am packing the shade “Misty” to my lid. This is a gorgeous pale pastel purple from the palette.
Step 5. I am now using an angled brush to apply my gel liner. I used the Sigma Gel liner in “Wicked” here.
Step 6. Time for lashes. I am using the Huda Beauty lashes in “Samantha” here for this look. I like to apply my lashes with a tweezer because it helps me get as close to my lash line as I possibly can!
Step 7. I am using a pencil brush to pack on the shade “Almost Jet” and “Atmosphere” to my bottom lash line and then I blended it out.
Step 8. I am packing on my highlight to my inner tear-duct. This truly makes the eyes pop and I personally always have to apply a highlight to the inner corner. Here I used the L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in “Goldmine”.
Volia! There is the finished look. I added mascara to my bottom lashes, but you don’t have to. It’s just personal preference and I feel it really completes the look and opens up the eyes even more. I also added a brown eye liner to my waterline but you can use any color you prefer or choose not to add anything at all! I hope you guys liked this and found it informative. Let me know if you would like more pictorials! Xo Julia ❤
