If we are not writing about makeup, you will definitely catch us spending hours on the Gram getting gobsmacked by some amazing looks created by our favourite makeup artists and influencers. Watching those videos is truly therapeutic, but ask us to recreate them, and poof! We break into a sweat.
One such makeup technique that we thought was awfully complicated was the cut crease eye technique. But we don’t shy away from a challenge. So we tried our hand at it, and we have to say, it’s not as complicated as we thought. Sure it looks like a piece of art, but when you break it down, it’s really quite simple. So here the easiest cut crease guide to help you ace the look if you give it a shot.

First off, what exactly is cut crease?
Cut crease is a technique that defines the crease of your eye using a contrasting eyeshadow colour and requires little to almost no blending. It clearly differentiates between the brow bone and the eye lid and gives depth and dimension to the eyes. This eye makeup look can be defined as dramatic, and the end result makes your eyes look larger and more attractive.
We know you’ve heard this a thousand times before from us, but if you are still tempted to skip the primer before applying makeup, then we need to remind you once more. Prep your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer to help your makeup last longer and look flawless.
Next, using the brown shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose, apply it all over your lid and closer to the brow bone to create a transition. For a transition shade, always use something slightly darker than your skin tone as it helps the eyeshadow colours look more blended and natural.
Next, apply a concealer such as the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer across lid to clean up the edges of the brown eyeshadow and to provide a guide for the cut crease. Remember to only use an angled brush to apply concealer and sweep it outward and across toward the tail of the eyebrow.
After the concealer, apply the peach shade from the same Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose as a light base pigment across the concealer-covered lid. This will create the dramatic edge of the cut crease makeup look.
To finish the stunning makeup look, simply line your eyes using the Lakmé Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner – Black. Create a slight wing to give it that edge. Apply two coats of your favourite mascara and voila! Your cut crease is ready.
