Myla of @Pradaolic Shows Us How to Perfect the Squiggle Cut CreaseAugust 07, 2020
STEP 1: Build Your Base
Myla began the look with a strong eyeshadow base: a coat of the NYX Professional Makeup Eyeshadow Base in White Pearl. Apply the product by rounding out the shape of it into a half moon, extending it slightly above the crease, toward the inner nose and just past the outer corner.
STEP 2: Apply a Bright Shadow
Next, Myla went in with Switch, a vibrant orange from the Urban Decay Wired Palette. Using a flat shader brush, she tapped the shadow over where she placed the white base for a highly pigmented finish.
STEP 3: Draw Your Squiggle
After applying orange shadow, use the NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Liner in Sapphire for the squiggle. When recreating the look, use the tip of the brush to create a squiggly line just above the crease. Feel free to apply as many squiggles and bumps as you please — make it as non-linear as you’d like. You’ll notice that this liquid formula is ideal for creating this type of shape as it’s pigmented and flexible.
STEP 4: Complete the Look
Myla completed the look by applying Chaos, an electric blue from the Urban Decay Wired Palette, with a tapered brush on the lower lash line to tie the whole color story together. Apply a coat of mascara for a feathered-lash finish (we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Noir Mascara).
