From the 1960s to the last few years, the popularity of the cut crease has every beauty blogger sporting a dramatic look that widens eyes and adds an extra oomph to eye makeup.
What Exactly is a Cut Crease?
The cut crease combines a lighter shade of eyeshadow application with a line (or “cut”) across the middle crease of your eyelid. On its own, the look makes your eyes appear wider and draws more attention to the colors on your lids, but you don’t have to stop there. When paired with cat eyeliner or false eyelashes, cut creases bring on Adele-levels of drama (no singing required) and mod '60s vibes. It’s a brilliant, yet simple technique that’ll take your eye makeup to the next level.
