ALL-DAY SLAY MAKEUP WITH SIMPLE GLITTER CUT CREASE TUTORIAL
Posted on by Sheela Herlan
While glitter eye makeup is commonly associated with special celebratory events like proms, birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines Day, Christmas and New Years’, it goes without saying that you can certainly tone down the glitter and use it to bring everyday glam to your look regardless of where you’re heading out to.
The good news is that it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner who’s never quite attempted the cut crease because thankfully you’ve got so many tutorials out there that are easy to follow and created by seasoned beauty mavens like myself.
Take a look at this beginner-friendly cut crease tutorial from YouTuber, Angela Bright, where she shows off some of her tricks for warming up glitter eye shadow for a subtler yet glitzy everyday look:
As you can see, although the cut crease is a staple makeup look that could be used to bring sass to any outfit, putting a glitter spin on it using this pressed glitter eye palette from Cleof Cosmetics, could take your eye makeup game to a whole new level.
Not to mention, that spinning a classic look like the cut crease is exciting since you’re mixing things up with old techniques while learning some new ones.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Here’s a short list of the products you’d need to recreate this gorgeous Teal Glitter Cut Crease look as seen on Angela:
- Full coverage HD or airbrush concealer (product used: - Benefit airbrush concealer in color no. 1)
- Translucent powder (Suggested: NYX or Benefit)
- Nude eyeshadow palette with some bright colors (Suggested: JACKLYN HILL X Morphe palette)
- Glitter eyeshadow palette (You can buy it here)
- Quality lash curler, mascara and set of fake lashes
Now it’s important to remember that creating a stunning cut crease isn’t just about going with classic technique but, experimenting with different colors that aren’t so conventional.
You can go ahead and try to achieve that unique and dominating effect as soon as you’ve decided on what colors you want to go with and choose a good set of brushes and quality products.
That said, here’s the basic process to get this done:
STEP 1: Depending on how you prefer to go about with your routine, begin with a full face of foundation and powder all set, or simply apply primer as a base and get started with your eyebrows and then shadow. Generally, eyeshadow primer helps your makeup spark better so do not skip this step.
STEP 2: Next, start with a flat shadow brush and use a transition shade first, then a darker shade on and above the crease to add some definition. Deepen the crease with a darker shade of eyeshadow, all from the nude palette you’ve chosen.
STEP 3: To create your cut crease, go in with a lighter shade concealer using an angled brush in the deep corner and be careful not to go past the halfway mark. Next, take a bright color of your choice and go over the dark crease. This is the side of your eyelid where you’d want to go in with the pressed glitter from the Cleof Cosmetics palette.
The finish of your sides with a darker shade of brown shadow and eyeliner of choice. And voila, instant dazzle!
