I saw this photo on Instagram and was immediately inspired by it, so I wanted to recreate the look. You know I can’t resist a beautifully done dramatic cut-crease.
I absolutely adore the brown and teal color combo, and loved the intensity of the black liner on the crease line with the glitter accent on the lid. This look is intense and isn’t ideal for every day wear, obviously, but it’s so incredibly beautiful and was super fun to create.

Step 1: Apply a primer all over the eye area to help increase the eyeshadows’ vibrancy and eliminate creasing; then, dip a thin synthetic angled brush into a warm copper brown eyeshadow and trace the color above the natural crease line, and wing out the color on the outer corner.
Step 2: Continue to build up the copper brown color until the desired intensity is achieved, then switch over to a tapered pencil brush and blend the color upwards.
Step 4: To cut the crease, use a flat synthetic brush to trace a small amount of concealer underneath the crease line, which will clean up any imperfections for a sharper and more precise look.
Tip: Use a clean eyeliner brush to sweep a setting powder underneath the crease line to set the concealer in place, which will prevent creasing.
Step 5: With a pointed eyeliner brush (or any fine brush), sketch out the outer wing with a matte teal eyeshadow and make sure to leave a negative space between the lid and crease colors; take the teal eyeshadow inward half way across the lid, then line the upper lash line with the teal color.
Step 6: Use a small shader brush to pat a transparent setting powder onto the inner half of the lid; then, go back to the flat synthetic brush with a little amount of concealer and clean up the wing.
Step 7: Take a black liquid eyeliner and trace the crease line to really intensify the look (I love using the Jordana Cosmetics Black Leather Cat Eye Liner for detailing because of its small and ultra fine applicator).
Step 8: Use the tapered pencil brush to sweep the warm copper brown eyeshadow onto the lower lash line, then deepen the outer corner with a matte black eyeshadow.
Step 9: Pat an iridescent white glitter onto the inner lid.
Step 10: Line the upper lash line with a black liquid eyeliner.
Step 11: Complete the eye look by coating the top and bottom lashes with mascara, then apply on a pair of voluminous false eyelashes for a sultry finish.
Here is the completed eye look:
