Are you wondering what a ‘cut crease’ is? In simple terms, when you apply eye shadow by drawing a line (cutting) just above the crease, a very defined and sharp line, creating a separation between the actual lid and the upper eye area then blending that line outward towards the brow, it’s known as the ‘cut crease’. This method can make your lid appear bigger making the eyes seem bigger. Watch the video to learn how it’s done —

Follow these tips for a simple cut crease —

  • Stick to using brushes with crisp/sharp edges. The best one for a cut crease is the angled brush (the one used to fill in the eyebrows) since this allows you utmost precision and also makes turns and twists in the application simpler.
  • If you are trying this for the first time and don’t want to go for bold/dark colors, use shades of brown. Apply a matte brown shadow as the cut crease color and blend with shades similar to that.
  • If you have become a master at cut crease, a black gel liner drawn on the crease with a pointed liner brush and blended with shadow would look magnificent!
