The Muted Cut Crease



“What I like about this look is that it’s subtle enough to wear for any occasion and it’s a very flattering look on most eye shapes because, it has a lifting effect. In this particular look I used soft, neutral, mauve colours from my Smashbox Double Exposure Palette.

To get started, you’ll want to apply a light colour across the lid from the lash line to the crease and under the arch of the eyebrow to highlight. In order for you to achieve the cut crease, you’ll want to apply a medium eyeshadow colour along the crease while keeping it darker near the outer corner of the eye.”

Emily’s Tips:

  • If you have less space on the lid space below your crease as opposed to above, you can create the illusion of a higher crease. To do so, begin by taking your crease colour slightly higher. It’s easiest if you map out your crease while your eyes are open and looking straight ahead.
  • For precision, I like to map out where the cut crease will be placed with an angled liner brush and then I build my colour saturation gradually. I build up the colours with a medium eyeshadow and slowly add darker colours.
