If there’s an easier way to do our eyeshadow, then we’re all for it. Sometimes it’s hard keeping up with the different eyeshadow trends and styles. Like a precise winged eyeliner or a sultry smoky eye, cut crease eyeshadow is another eyeshadow technique that sounds complicated but, once mastered, will become a staple in your makeup rolodex.
Cut crease eyeshadow is a popular technique using different coloured eyeshadow to ‘cut’ across the crease of your eyelid, creating a distinct shadow. This contrast in colour exaggerates your eye shape, giving the appearance of larger eyes. Perfect for neutral and nude tones (or when you’re more confident, this technique also looks great in bold hues).
You’re not alone if you’ve found yourself searching: how to apply eyeshadow. Do you want to try creating the ultimate cut crease eyeshadow look? This viral TikTok hack shows how you can achieve cut crease eyeshadow using, your usual eye makeup products and… a SPOON.
