This Stacked Crease Liner Look Is What Technicolor Dreams Are Made Of

With bold graphic crease eyeliner and crease-centric negative space looks, cut-crease liner has gotten a complete 2020 makeover. Another new, modern take on the cut crease is stacked liner — where multicolored lines are stacked on top of one another with little blending. We first saw this look from beauty Instagrammer @luciphyrr and decided to challenge NYC-based makeup artist Jonet Williamson to give us her own take on the look. Ahead, she breaks down how it’s done in just three steps.


  • STEP 1: Start With the Inner Corner

    The easiest way to begin this look is by working from the inner to the outer corner. Williamson begins with the Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Shock, a vivid purple, and takes it about a third of the way through, focusing it on the natural crease line.

  • STEP 2: Add Your Middle Stack

    Next, grabbing the hot pink Wired 24/7 Liner in Amped, she lines the center of the crease (directly over the iris of the eye) but stacks it underneath the purple line. “The pink is actually going to meet the white that you add on later,” she says. “Stagger the pink line below and stop it once you reach the outer crease.”

  • STEP 3: Add Your Last Stacks and Set

    “Line Jolt (the lime green) underneath the outer third of the pink line, then wing it out,” says Williamson. For the white detail, pick up the 24/7 Liner in Yeyo (or the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk) and apply it to the inner third and outer third, under the purple and lime green lines. “Dust translucent powder over the lines and you’re good to go.”

“Stagger the pink line below and stop it once you reach the outer crease.”
