Cut Crease Makeup – Tutorial For Hooded, Deep Set Or Small Eyes.
Don’t you just love a gorgeous makeup look that can also compliment your eye shape? The Cut Crease makeup is a popular style for those with deep set, hooded or small eyes, as well as other eye shapes. This graphic eye look will define your eyes beautifully, make your eyes appear bigger.
This is a style for the advanced makeup enthusiast, it does take some practice to master and should not be attempted blindly. The glamorous cut crease eye makeup is one of those techniques that require the instructions of a professional, so if you want to learn how to achieve it, watch the Cut Crease Makeup tutorial I did for you guys.
The technique is used to give the eyes a really dramatic, defined crease. It implies the use of a strong contrast between the light shades on the lids and the dark ones in the crease, which fade on the brow bone. The Cut Crease is a graphic eye makeup, that still has a smoky component to it, so it does take some makeup skills to achieve.
However, done right, the look is pure glamor, as I’m sure you’ve seen in magazines a million times.
What I also love about the Cut Crease or Banana Makeup, as some of you might know it, is that there are many different options in achieving the look. The style and shape of the crease line you create depends solely on the wearer’s features and her eye shape.
For example, if you have small eyes, the graphic line you draw on the crease will have to be slightly curvier, in order to make your eyes appear bigger and achieve a doll-eye effect.
For deep set eyes, with protruding brow arches as well as for hooded eyes, the crease line you draw should be above the natural one, to balance your features and optically distort the volumes. If you have one of these eye shapes, keep your eyes open when applying the crease shade, as this helps you create the illusion of a crease. This tip also comes in handy when you are dealing with an asymmetric eye shape.
Brushes are your key ingredients in creating such a makeup. For the crease try a small, flat and firm brush like and for blending use small blending brushes as well as fluffy dome brushes to achieve the perfect smoky effect.
In terms of shades, you can choose to do the Cut Crease Makeup however you feel like, however I recommend that you keep lighter shades on the lid and darker ones in the crease. This style looks great done with neutral shades, as well as bold, beautiful colors. The choice is up to you.
