Since we’re officially heading into the holiday season, it’s time to learn some classic eye shadow techniques that you’ll be able to easily recreate at home. We teamed up with Rodial’s national makeup artist Valerie Delgado to show you how to transition the popular cut crease to a holiday glam look. If you’ve never learned how to do an eye shadow cut crease, you’re missing out! The cut crease may look intimidating, but with a little patience, it’s a great look that makes your eyes really pop. This is one technique you're going to want to master for the holidays. 



What you’ll need:

To successfully create a cut crease, make sure your hand is steady since you’ll be sculpting and carving out definition. You don’t want your one of your eyes to look bigger than the other, so carve carefully, especially when you’re using your eye pencil.  A perfect cut crease also heavily relies on your blending skills, so make sure you really blend out your lines and take your time if you need to! Once you get the hand of the steps, it will get a lot easier.

I am personally not a fan of the cut crease. I just don't find it visually appealing. But I am a big fan of brown shadows for creating natural day to night looks!

This looks super cool and looks perfect for Thanksgiving!, I would pair it with a nice matte brown lipstick.

A matte brown lip would look great! Good choice!

I have always had trouble doing a cut-crease because one eye is more hooded than the other. It just never comes out right. Do you have any tips on how to fix that?

I found this video super helpful! I hope it helps you, too. We may have to do our own video on this topic! Thank you for the feedback!

This looks like such a beautiful look! Sadly, it might not work on my hooded asian eyelids. It would be nice if you can make a tutorial sometime in the future on adjustments for different eye shapes.
Liz Cabrera on Sun, 11/13/2016 - 9:57pm
Thank you for the great feedback, Emmily! I think we definitely need to do a tutorial for different eye shapes!
