Step-by-Step Guide on Half-Cut Crease Eye Makeup 

Follow the steps mentioned below to create the half-cut crease eye makeup; 

Step 1 

Before starting the half-cut crease eye makeup, it is important to prep your eyelids.  

• Use a primer to prime your lids and create a smooth base for an effortless application of eyeshadow. This will also help your eye makeup last all day without cracking or flaking. 

Step 2 

After the primer sets in place, take a fluffy brush and apply an eyeshadow shade that is darker than your skin tone.  

• Load your brush with a matte eyeshadow and buff it into your crease. Make sure you place it evenly across your lid and blend the product in well.  

• Now to create the half-cut crease eye makeup, take a slightly darker shade and place it on the outer half of your eye. Blend the shade well using windshield wiper motions and create a seamless transition. 

Step 3 

After blending the crease shade properly, you must cut your crease perfectly.  

• Take the required amount of concealer on a fine-tipped brush and place it on the inner half of your lid, working your way to the middle. Make sure you don’t cover up the shadow in your crease. The placement of concealer will create a sharp cut in the inner half of your crease.  

• After this, blend around the meeting point of the shadow and concealer slightly to get rid of any harsh lines. 

Step 4 

While doing a half-cut crease eye makeup, it is important to set the concealer in place.  

• Setting the concealer with loose powder will ensure that there is no creasing or flaking of pigment.  

• Take loose powder on a fluffy brush and gently place it on your upper lid. 

Step 5 

For the next step of this half-cut crease makeup look, take an eyeshadow colour of your choice.  

• Deepen the pigment on your lids. You can place a shimmer or loose glitter on the portion where you have applied concealer. This will help it pop and create the perfect half-cut crease eye makeup. 

Step 6 

In this last step of the half-cut crease makeup guide, simply finish your eye makeup with eyeliner, kajal, and mascara. This will make your eyes pop and complete your face makeup
