Beginners Cut Crease | Simple Talk Through

I love makeup and trying out new products, but I’m not usually that adventurous when trying out new makeup looks. So I thought I’d attempt to do my first ever cut crease, I thought I’d film it and talk it through because it would definitely be a simple look, ideal for beginners!! I was really happy with how my first attempt turned out, obviously practice makes perfect and there are things I’ll be able to improve on (I would maybe cut the crease a bit higher next time to compliment my eye shape more).

BROWS: ABH dipbrow pomade in soft brown,
L’Oreal brow artist plumper in brunette

EYES: MAC soft ochre paint pot,
MUG peach smoothie, creme brûlée, frappe, cocoa bear, mocha,
Maybeline master ink eyeliner,
Rimmel scandal eye mascara,
Eylure lashes in “exaggerate”,
NYX jumbo eyeliner in milk

PRIMER: Smashbox photofinish primer,
Cover fx blot drops

FOUNDATION: No7 instant radiance foundation in calico

CONCEALER: MAC pro-longwear concealer in NC20

POWDER: NYX contour palette,
Laura Mercier translucent powder

BRONZER: MAC matte bronzing powder

BLUSH: Makeup Geek blush in romance

HIGHLIGHT:MAC soft and gentle

LIPS: MAC lipliner in cork,
MAC lipstick in film noir


It’s not the most dramatic look, but I’ll try out more adventurous makeup ideas as I get more confident!! Let me know if there are any looks you’d like to see! Or let me know of any products I should try!

I hope you like this look, please like and subscribe if you did!! Thank you for watching!

Love, Estelle        X

    This is utterly stunning! I’m not a massive fan of a dramatic cut crease but this is perfect – not too subtle not too OTT. Love it!❤🎀🌸

    I love the two strips of cellotape trick, I love a cut crease but struggle with getting the cut crease higher than my eyeliner. Definitely going to give this a go, thank you for sharing!!
