How To: Glitter Cut Crease

It’s nearly Friday night and I can’t think of a better reason to whip out the glitter to amp up tonight’s cut crease eye makeup. The cut crease eyeshadow look is everywhere right now and while it seems a little tricky it is actually quite simple to create. You just need some practice and you will be perfect, not that I am anywhere near perfect, far from it, but I really liked how this look turned out so wanted to share it. I hope it might inspire some of you to try something you don’t usually because that is what makeup is all about; experimenting, trying new looks and just having fun with it.Β 


I created this glitter cut crease using the Morphe 12 Colour Natural Beauty PaletteΒ and Wet and Wild’s Brass Glitter Shadow and here is how it turned out:

And these are the steps I completed to create it:

Step 1: Apply a primer and a shade similar to shade 1 in the Morphe palette all over your lid.img_1774

Step 2: Taking a orange shade such as the shade numbered above as 2 blend this into your crease, when it’s seamlessly blended take a darker shade like the one numbered as 3 and blend it into the crease for more definition.

Step 3: Using a definer eyeshadow brush with a dark shade, I used shade numbered 4, open your eye and looking directly into the mirror draw a line just above your crease and wing it out. Blend this line upwards and add more product if needed to ensure definition, you want to be able to see the line but you don’t want it to be too harsh. Don’t worry if the line isn’t perfect as you will be tidying it up later.

Step 4: Now pick your lid colour, it is best to go with a light colour for contrast, I chose the shade numbered as 5, and pack this onto the lid. Using a definer brush again use this colour to tidy up and sharpen the line you created in your crease. You can also use concealer if you want a sharper result.

Step 5: Then the fun part – add some glitter. I used Wet n Wild’s glitter shadow in Brass on a definer brush and added it just to the dark winged line I created above my crease.

Step 6: Finish with a sharp wing that sits parallel to the line you created above your crease, I love using Revolutions liquid pen liner as I find it so much easier to create a clean wing with it. Finally just add some lashes and you’re good to go.


For the majority of this look I used this two sided eyeshadow brush from Primark, it is really inexpensive, super soft and works fantastically well at blending as well as applying shadows precisely.


I hope you like this look and happy Friday.
