Simple Cut Crease

Now for this look, I only used 3 shades! This look is such a simple cut crease. Especially if you are a beginner at cut creases and you don’t want to do anything crazy. Also, I find when you do a cut crease it looks like you tried a little harder.


3 brushes were used for this look. I used a blending brush, a flat concealer brush, and a packing brush. You don’t need a lot of brushes to create great looks. Just use your favourite brushes. Now that we have everything we need let’s start with this simple cut crease picture tutorial.

Step 1

First shade that I go into is Hide & Seek. This is basically the only transition shade in here for me. All my looks start with this shade. I also had primed my eyes with concealer and did not set the concealer. I prefer a wet base when starting to apply my eyeshadows.

Step 2

For the second shade in this simple cut crease I used Flip Out which is a cool toned brown and it just looks grey. Which I’m not mad at that, I still liked how it turned out. 

Step 3

Now it is time to cut the crease and for this I used concealer. You want to start out by applying the concealer to bottom of your eye, right next to your lash line. Once you have concealer next to your lashes look up. This will help guide you for how high you should bring the concealer. 

Step 4

Once your concealer is on you are going to pack on the shade Clutch. You just want to apply this everywhere you applied concealer. As you can see in the picture above the outer corner is not a clean sharp line. To do this I either use a makeup wipe or a Q-tip with makeup remover.

You can start this look with tape if you want to make it a clean line right away. For me I just hate having tape, so if I feel I can do it without it I will.

Step 5

The fifth step is adding your winged liner. After you have the outer corner cleaned and a sharp line it is so easy to follow the line with your liner. You can use any eyeliner you choose. I had used the Kat Von D liner in trooper.

Step 6

The last and final step is adding mascara and lashes. Just use your favorite mascara and favourite lashes and you will be good to go. I used some Sephora lashes but I am just not a fan of these and don’t think they are worth it.

Also I want to let you know I did not put any eyeshadow on my lower lash line. I just did not want to that day, but if you would like to I would say just add the same first two shades.

P.S Don’t mind my brows I had forgot to do them.
