They emphasize the importance of getting the shade all the way into the crease and connecting it to the outer crease. The colors of the crease are then built up, and the outer corner of the eye is worked on. The creator then shows how to blend the shadow into the center of the lid and provides tips for finding the right brush and concealer for the technique. Finally, the creator proceeds to create the actual “cut crease” by using a liquid concealer and a small, flat brush to create a Half-Moon shape on the eyelid.
- 00:10:00 In this section of the video, the makeup artist begins by applying eyeshadow using a soft glam palette. They place concealer on their eyelid and apply it halfway back toward the crease using a small brush. After wiping off the excess brush on a towel, they apply a shimmer eyeshadow shade above the concealer. The artist then blends the eyeshadow higher up on the crease and switches to a darker shade, Cyprus Umber, which they apply to the outer corner of their eye to deepen it. They then optionally outline the cut crease with the shade, Pyncone, for added depth and dimension. The artist then moves on to the lower lash line, using small brush sizes for precision, and applying the eyeshadow shade lower on the lashes. They blend this shade with a little bit of orange soda to further blend it into the eyelid.

She uses the ABH Soft Glam Palette for this purpose, specifically the shade “Tempera” for the inner corner and under the brow. The thin line of eyeliner, using the House Labs liquid eyeliner, is added to emphasize the eyes, followed by mascara and lashes.

It’s noted that technique can be tricky for newcomers, but with practice, anyone can master it. The video is intended to educate viewers and inspire them to try the technique for themselves.
