Creating the perfect cut crease is an art, and a difficult one at that.
The eyeshadow look, which “cuts” sharply across your eyelid and brow bone, is a fave among beauty vloggers and Instagrammers because of the dramatically defined crease and perfectly-contoured eye it gives them.
Cutcreases are my favorites PRODUCTS USED: @kyliecosmetics The bronze eyeshadow palette. I used the shades: Jasper, Citrine, Tiger eye, Hematite, Bronzite and Obsidian – – @lorealnl Slim liner for my wing – – @anastasiabeverlyhills waterproof pencil in my waterline – @Annytude SULTRY lashes use the code AN to get discount – – @anastasiabeverlyhills Brow wiz in Medium Brown, Dipbrow in Chocolate and browgel in chocolate.
But anyone who’s tried doing a free-handed cut crease knows that a lot can go wrong when trying out the technique. Luckily, one vlogger’s found a genius hack that makes creating a cut crease so much easier, and it involves using a good old bottle cap.
In an Instagram vid that is going viral, Juliana Leme demonstrates how a simple plastic bottle cap makes the perfect guide for applying crease eyeshadow. All you need to do is place the (hopefully washed) bottle cap over your closed eye, and apply shadow around it for a halo effect.
The technique, as you can see from the video above, is a great way to get the perfect, dramatic smoky eye, and makes for precise eyeshadow application.
Here’s Juliana’s finished look:
This bottle cap trick is similar to the spoon hack that went viral last year, where a vlogger used a plastic spoon to create her cut crease.
