Hello my pumpkins and welcome back to my blog!
This post has literally been on my drafts for 3 freaking months and today I am finally publishing it. I don’t know why it took my that long to publish it but it’s fine, here we are. Anyways, today I am sharing with you my tips and tricks to achieve a perfect cut-crease, I am far from being NikkiTutorials but I do know how to get a good and decent cut crease and I really wanted to share with you my methods that I acquired after watching endless of makeup videos and after creating countless of cut crease eye makeup looks. If you don’t know what’s a cut-crease makeup look, it is basically when you carve your crease using a concealer.
Now, if you wish to know more about my tips then keep on reading and don’t forget to check out my two recent posts: The Autumn Tag ’18 and Latest Deals – Your Perfect Christmas Guide
In order, to achieve a good cut crease you need to get yourself a good brush and a good concealer [full coverage if possible] cause that’s how you are going to get a precise work. Make sure your brush is as flat and dense as possible. I usually like to use the concealer I use to cover my dark circles, until today, I only use my Kylie Cosmetics Skin Concealer, but I recently purchased Too Faced’s Born This Way concealer [the new one not old one]. Both are full-coverage and are amazing to create a cut-crease.
Cut your crease by opening your eyes[The title of this section is super weird] I got this trick from Izabella Fiori and basically, in order to know the limit to cutting your crease, you apply the concealer on the lid then open your eyes so that your lid touches your crease and the concealer will automatically transfer and draw the limit to your cut crease. I tried this method several times and I found it to be super useful!
Go step by step
I usually don’t apply to much concealer at first; I first apply a little, carve my crease the way I want using tapping motion [and that’s kind of like a third tip] then I apply even more concealer just to make sure the cut crease is clear and precise.
Don’t set your concealer
The reason you do a cut crease is for your eyeshadow to pop out [most probably, or just because it looks nice and original] and for that, you need a sticky base hence I wouldn’t recommend you to set your concealer if you want to apply eyeshadow on top. And, as a reference, I never see any beauty youtubers setting their concealer when doing a cut crease, NikkiTutorials even mentioned that tip.
I love this green makeup look, definitely recreating it with my Emerald palette. I purchased it for a reason.
Blend out those harsh edges
In case you’re carving your crease like this below, don’t forget to blend these harsh edges or else the transition between eyeshadow and the concealer won’t be smooth and nice.
