Holiday Glitter Cut Crease Makeup Look

I am so excited to share my first holiday makeup look with you guys!! This is my first attempt at a cut crease and I absolute love it! I had to add some glitter in there for the holidays and am thrilled with how it turned out! The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner is an absolute must for the holiday season and I will be featuring it again next week with a totally different makeup look! With this look I couldn’t decide between a nude lip or a bold red lip so I did both;)

I have outlined step by step instructions below on how to obtain the cut crease as well as I have linked all of my makeup details below!!!

Hope you enjoy!

Step By Step



Image 1: Apply a base eyeshadow, neutral in colour. This will make it easier to blend your crease!

Image 2: Start with a bit darker shade than your base and outline where you would like the cut crease. Try not to drag the shadow to the outer corner of your eye, its an easier clean up that way!

Image 3: Slowly begin to add darker shades into the crease whether its browns or purples, I did a little combo of both. Apply the shadow darkest in the crease and blend upwards so the shadow fades up to your brows.

Image 4: Use your concealer and a concealer brush (I use this one) to draw out your cut crease. Apply a layer or two to make sure you have a nice clean line and any shadow underneath is hidden. Once this is complete add a base shadow over your eye, this could be a light neutral like I have here or a shadow with some glitter or pigment!

Image 5: Next I add my wing liner, as always using my Amaterasu Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Image 6: Lastly take the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner and slowly line your cut crease. Tip: Try to keep your eyes looking down until the eyeliner has dried otherwise it will smug!! I learned this the hard way! I applied two coats here, you can definitely add more for a stronger presence of glitter!! Optional: You can also add a little glitter under your lower lash line towards your inner corner for another pop of glitter!
