How to define your eye crease

Many people wear a simple colour wash of beige eyeshadow across their eyelid as an everyday makeup look.  I’m going to show you how to take it to the next level using a L’Oreal Color Riche Couleur de Crayon in Smoky Taupe, and show you how to define your eye crease.

Simply press the creamy tip of the chubby crayon against your eyelid just on the top of your eyeball.  Run it along the top of your eyeball to define the crease and add depth and definition to your eye makeup.  Depending on your eye shape, you may need to experiment to find the best look for you.

I divided my eye into four sections by holding the crayon vertically at the end of my eyebrow and moving it to the beginning of my eyebrow in four steps.  I concentrate the placement of the Couleur de Crayon in the middle two sections.

You can up the glamour further by taking a similar taupe shimmer shade of eyeshadow and blending it over the top.

To coordinate your look further, you can run the Couleur de Crayon  along the top of your lashes and along the inner rim, above your lower lashes.

There are lots of colours available in the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Couleur de Crayon range.  I have selected the Smoky Taupe as it is a universally flattering colour that works well for a polished day look and a glam evening look.

    It’s one of those things that appears much harder than it is. You just need to keep playing and experimenting!ReplyCancel

    I love a little eye shadow in my eye crease. It makes such a difference. I use this pencil too but I have to avoid the water line. I must have a watery water line because it travels. LOVE the pencil for everything else though. Great easy peasy tutorial 🙂 Rachel xReplyCancel

    Confession time: I have not worn any form of eyeshadow in years … and in that time my eyelids have become a bit crepey, I guess I’m getting older. I’ve been getting a lot more adventurous with my makeup of late (that’s what happens when you have a 17 y.o. daughter) so you just never know!ReplyCancel

      Aha! What you need is a good non creasing eyeshadow base / primer. I like the L’Oreal Magique primer patted onto the eyelids. The Urban Decay one is brilliant but hard to get in Australia. The matte Face of Australia one is very good and a total bargain. Just avoid the sparkly one like the plague!

      You don’t necessarily need coloured shadow on top. The primer will just even out your eyelid colour and brighten your eye area.ReplyCancel
