The latest trend is called Cut Crease. In this eye makeup technique, the eyelid crease is emphasized with a dark color, while the movable eyelid is made up in a lighter shade. It is very important that light and dark eyeshadows are clearly distinguishable. The combination of the two tones ensures that the eyes look bigger and more open. The Cut Crease look comes in very different color ideas, which can sometimes be less noticeable. Today we’ll show you how to make nude soft cut crease.

Nude Soft Cut Crease – step by step guide
Prime the eyelids first. A concealer can be wonderfully used as an eye shadow base. Dot concealer on the eyelid to smooth out the skin. Blend with your finger and use a makeup sponge to soak up any excess product. Set with sheer powder and a flat foundation brush to make the eyeshadow easy to blend.
Contour the crease with matte ocher eyeshadow and a defined crease brush. Use a fluffy blending brush to soften any harsh edges. Apply matte taupe eyeshadow with a defined crease brush and again, use the fluffy blending brush to soften any harsh edges.
Apply concealer with a packing brush all over the lid. Set the concealer with matte nude eyeshadow using a clean brush. Smoke out the lower lash line by applying matte ocher eyeshadow with a smudger brush. Add matte taupe eyeshadow on the outer part. To brighten up the inner corner apply silver eyeshadow with a packing brush.
Emphasize the outer third of the lower and upper eyelash line with black eye pencil. Apply black gel eyeliner with an angled brush and draw a wing.
Finally, use the eyelash curler to bend the eyelashes and then apply mascara to the upper and lower eyelashes.
Apply moisturizer to the entire face and work the pore-filling primer into the skin with circular movements. Dab foundation on the center of the face and distribute it evenly with a makeup sponge. Apply eyebrow gel and go over the eyebrows with the makeup sponge to soak up any excess product.
Apply Concealer on the protruding parts of the face (cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of the nose and the bow and forehead center). Blend everything well with the makeup sponge. Apply sheer setting powder to the area under the eyes. Use a big fluffy brush for the rest of the face and also to dust away any excess powder.
Warm up the cheekbones and the forehead by applying illuminating bronzing powder with a fluffy angled brush. Gently move the brush under the cheekbones. Use a kabuki brush to apply blush. Highlight the cheekbones, the nose and the cupid’s bow with a fan brush.
Line the lips with nude lip liner. Soften the edges of the liner with a lip brush. Then fill in the lips with pink lipstick.
