This smokey cut crease eyeshadow look is quite easy to recreate by following these simple steps below:
Start by preparing the eyelid with an eye primer or concealer and finish with a dusting of either loose or pressed powder. Press on a white or creamy coloured eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone) onto the entire eyelid and brow bone.
Take your chosen colour of eyeshadow and apply it along the socket line, now check with your eyes open by looking straight ahead into a mirror to see if the colour has been applied high enough, if you can’t see it when you look straight ahead at yourself then take it a little higher. Don’t apply it too high as you need to leave room for the blending which will take the colour a little higher up.
Now blend the line of colour using a larger blending brush, go over the colour softly in the area it has been applied in a back and forth motion being careful not to drag the colour too high or change the shape. Don’t be too heavy handed or you will start to loose the intensity of the colour by working it too much into the brush.
Using the tip of a flat brush apply a fairly thin line of black eyeshadow in the socket line inside the pink.
Using a softer brush start to blend the line so there are no hard lines or edges and the colour blends into the pink. Be careful not to blend the black too high or you will start to cover up the pink eyeshadow, so keep the blending low and just along the socket line.
Finish the look by adding eyeliner, mascara and for a more striking look false lashes too.
