Throwback to the 60’s! Forget everything you know about eyeliner & eye shadow application, a trend appearing on several beauty guru Instagram pages and blogs is a game changer this season and can suit anyone.
I am of course, talking about the cut crease.
A style typically associated with the 60’s that just keeps making a comeback, and this twiggy eye style has done it again… and it is gorgeous! Popular with celebrities such as Lana Del Rey, Binky from ‘Made in Chelsea’ and Adele, the crease cut is now a look for the many as opposed to the few; it is so easily customisable there is no reason every girl can’t stun with this look. So what exactly is a cut crease? It’s a style that is typically created using eye shadow that has been updated slightly to suit the 21st century, with the use of eyeliner.
First of all you apply eyeliner in a cat eye style, then using your choice of product (eye liner or shadow) connect the cat eye into the crease of your eye lid (if you use eye shadow make sure you have a sharply pointed makeup tool for a cleaner application) and drag right into the corner of your eye. If you do choose eye shadow blend above only, be sure to keep that sharp line!
Tip: To get a sharp cat eye flick using eye shadow, or you just want to make sure you achieve that perfect cat eye, cut a small square of tape (either nail or paper tape, anything else will remove foundation etc.), and place it as a guide where you want your flick to be. It is typically place at an angle pointing towards the end of your brow, but be sure not to put it too close to your eye. This will then ensure you don’t go over the line and create a straight flick, and even if you do you have the tape there to peel off!
This look can be glammed up or calmed down to suit both day and night occasions. Mixing an eyeliner crease cut with heavily pigmented colour or glitter gives a dramatic night-time look that will make your eyes pop! Whereas blending the eye shadow with autumnal warm colours will give a subtle effect, still being different and complimenting your eyes but without being too over the top.
Girls I believe it’s important to have an everyday look and evening look, it’s nice to look different when you go out, besides why make all the effort in the day, part of a night out is the getting ready part!
