Another day, another wild makeup trend that is breaking the internet. This time, the glitter cut crease makeup look is dominating our social media feeds according to HelloGiggles, and it's actually much prettier than it sounds. As it turns out, you can incorporate glitter into you makeup routine without looking like you're wearing a Halloween costume.
If you're not familiar with the term "cut crease," let me break it down for you. To quote Kim Kardashian on her app (via Allure), it's basically "a technique that contrasts eye-shadow color in the crease of your eye for a sharp, defined look." The cut crease technique is done by sweeping a contrasting shadow color across the indent of the lid, which ends up making the eye area look bigger and more emphasized. The glitter version, as the name suggests, swaps a matte shadow for a shimmery one, in any which color your heart may desire.
Beauty guru Huda Kattan posted a video of blogger Haley Wright demonstrating a sparkly cut crease, and it's actually pretty easy to achieve. All you really need is some glitter in the color of your choice and a sharp angle brush and — voilà! You've got yourself a glitter cut crease.
Check out the pretty makeup look. The glitter is just subtle enough without looking overbearing.
