Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

The Holidays are some of the most festive days of the year! I wanted to make a very festive look for the Holidays to give you some inspiration of what you could do yourself. I have made this silver glitter cut crease using the Coastal Scents Hot Pots and the Make Up Store Eyedust in Surface. The Coastal Scents Hot Pots are very affordable single shadows with almost 400 different to choose from, if you are interested, you can read my full review of the Hot Pots right here! If you want to learn how to create this look yourself, then keep on reading!

Before I use any eyeshadow, I will start off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and set it with translucent powder. I will use the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Kokomo Cafe as my transition shade and apply it in the crease with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush. The next step is optional, but to make sure I don’t blend the shadows too high, I will apply some translucent powder around the eyes in the shape I want the eyeshadow. For this, I use the Luxie Large Shader Brush.

Next, I will go into the crease with the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Ash Grey with the same Deluxe Crease Brush as before. To deepen up the crease, I will lay down some of the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Incognito with the Coastal Scents Pointed Blender Brush and blend it out using the Deluxe Crease Brush. To help the dark shadow blend, you can dip your brush into the Ash Grey shadow again. If you applied some of the translucent powder around your eyes, then now is the time to remove it with circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the shadow are blended.

Now it is time to cut the crease! I use the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade Porcelain with the Coastal Scents Small Foundation Concealer Brush. A good tip for during a cut crease is to start by applying the concealer as close to your upper lashes as possible and then slightly look up, then you will know where your cut crease should go. Before I apply any glitter I made a winged eyeliner (see my easy tutorial for a winged eyeliner right here!) using the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner.

Now I will apply the Make Up Store Eye Dust in the shade Surface using a sponge tip applicator. Reapply the liner anywhere the glitter might have been applied. Touch up the Incognito shadow around the cut crease with the Pointed Blender Brush. Be sure to use a light hand. Now finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in Brown. For my lashes, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and for my highlight, I used the shade Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. On my lips, I am wearing the ColourPop Lippie Pencil in Love Bug and Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lip Ammunition in Unicorn Blood.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and remember, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all Happy Holidays!
