Tutorial: Purple Cut Crease Smokey Eye

Hi, guys! Today’s tutorial will be on a cut crease smokey eye. I originally wanted to just do a cut crease but it’s turned into more of a semi cut crease smokey eye (what a mouth full!). I’m really happy with how it turned out and I think it’s beautiful! I hope you enjoy this 🙂

Step one: Prime your eyes and face.

Step two: Apply a taupe eye shadow in the crease and blend upward.

Step three: Apply a burgundy eye shadow on the outer corner and outer crease. Blend outward on the crease, and inward on the outer corner.

Step four: Now apply a shimmer purple eye shadow on the remaining part of the lid, do not blend out the edges, make them sharp and crisp.

Step five: Apply a shimmery pink eye shadow on the inner 1/3 of the purple and in the inner corner. Add highlight to the brow bone if desired. Also apply a dark purple eye shadow mixed with your bronzer on the lower lash line

Step six: Add winged eyeliner and mascara

Step seven: Do your eyebrows, contour, foundation, all that fun stuff 😉
