Cut/Defined Crease Makeup Tutorial For Hooded Eyes


A defined or cut crease is a look that suits any eye shape and especially helps the hooded eyes beauties in further enhancing their eyes. The darkness in the crease can be turned down for a more subtle effect and using a color just few shades darker than the skin tone helps in giving in an even more natural effect and if you want an even more defined and an absolute “cut” crease, blend the dark color with a very light hand. I have used black and pink as they show up very clearly and also because I was later planning to wear a black and pink outfit *wink*.

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1:

Start with priming and concealing the eyelids as needed.

Step 2:

I used a bright pink and applied it all over the eyelid.

Step 3:

I then used a creamy black pencil and drew a rough outline of where my crease is, this is the line in the socket where the eyeball connects to the eye socket, so just feel around for that and trace over it. I connected this line to the lower lash line by creating an outer V. This helps in creating an almond eye shape. Those with hooded eyes should definitely try this technique. It is one of the nicest techniques to change the eye shape. (The smudged mistake of black will be later covered with pink eyeshadow).

Step 4:

I blended the black out using a stiff brush. I used a touch of black eyeshadow to smoke out the crease color.

Step 5:

I placed a shimmery pink color over the centre of the eyelid. This is optional, I was attending a wedding so went for a shimmery look.

Step 6:

Apply eye liner connecting the V already created in Step 3. Placing the black color as done in Step 3 also helps in applying gel or liquid liner later, as the wing has already been created, one needs to just connect it to the inner corner & darken it as required.  I also applied a white on the brow bone, the inner tear duct area and also on half the lower lash line.  On the outer lower lash line, I applied the dark pink eyeshadow. Mascara is next and then concealer below the eyes to help clean up and brighten the area.

And that’s it, the look is done!

Here is a full face shot from that wedding. *feeling too shy :P* Some of you had asked for it. I wanted my makeup to match my outfit.


The lipstick used here is a mix of ELF’s Gypsy and Posh with a Maybelline pink lip liner (the name has rubbed off) under it. On my cheeks is a pink blush from Coastal Scents and an ELF highlighter (the flash has totally washed the colors off, I wish I had photographed in natural lighting). The foundation is a mix of Revlon Photoready Foundation and MAC Studio Fix Plus Liquid foundation. I set it all with MAC Studio Fix powder compact.

I hope you guys liked this and see you all soon, until next time Happy Makeuping!
