How to Make an Eyelid Crease Using Eyeshadow
So now, the next one is like really one of my favorites. This is kind of like my motivation from why I got into makeup. It’s a crease. I don’t get one. I used to look in magazines and be like, “How could she got a crease and I’ve got no crease?”
So, what we’re going to do is that we’re going actually put light in the middle of the lid behind the lashes. So right along the lower lash line in the middle, light color. Underneath the arch of the brow we put light. And then in the crease which is a little banana thing right over here at the more recessed area, we go with the darker shade. And that’s how we’re going to like build up the crease.
So, I’m going to just take a light base shade. Put it in the middle of the lid. So, we’re going to start on the inside corner. Fill in the whole lower lid with the lighter shade. Take the same color. Lift up the arch and just pop underneath the arch of the brow. How do you make some of it? That’s a little bit too dark. Come forward, you put a light color on it. And if you want some of it to look more pushed in, more recessed, we’re going to go with the darker color. We’ll take a little bit of the candle light and we’ll take a little bit of bark applied to the corners. So, that it can just make it easier. Do it with your eyes open. It kind of works for me. I’m looking in the mirror. I can do my eyeshadows when my eyes are opened. And that makes it a lot easier to fill where your crease is.
Here we go. So, we definitely fake the crease in this case. You can always take the same dark brown shadow. Instead of it making look like a real eyeliner, something a little too hard, you can actually just hue a little bit of a shadow and a small tip of the brush dry and this gives the illusion of a thicker lash line. Take your fingers. Take a q-tip afterwards just to fuse it, soften that line so it doesn’t look like two horizontal bars underneath your eyes. You’re not a football player.
Just to give the eyes a real dramatic punch to it and just to make everything extra shimmery, take a little bit of shimmer powder. We’re going to use a small sable brush, very flat. And we’ll just go and apply it right to the middle of the lid. So, if you really want something to stand out, you have very deep set of eyes and you need that area to come forward, then definitely apply it a little bit shimmer in the middle of the lid.
In that way, when you had the shimmer behind the lashes and then you actually curl your lashes and put mascara on, you’re actually going to see the lashes come forward a lot more. Just blend it out a little bit. Here we go. So, we can do the same thing underneath the arch of the brow just to give it extra hype.
