TRICKS OF THE TRADE
If you want a foolproof method to defining your cut crease, you have to try this! I love it because an eyeliner is more intense than a shadow AND you can be really precise as to where you apply it. Not to mention, you can blend and smooth it however much or little you wish. Here’s how:
- Your Favorite Kohl Pencil — I love this classic powder pencil ($$) because it’s super blend-able and this kohl pencil ($) used on Simone in this tutorial in Rich Cocoa.
- A Blending Crease Brush — try this one ($$) or this mini one ($$).
- A Classic Base Shadow — I love the off-white shade from this matte palette ($$) but you can also use this one ($).
- Your Favorite Mascara — Right now I’m obsessed with this Tightlining Mascara!
You can play with different shapes, shades and intensities. You can go back over the crease with a shadow in a similar shade to smoke it out even more!
