If you’re into makeup, you’ve most likely heard of a cut crease, but you may not be entirely sure how to create it yourself. Achieving a cut crease entails applying a lighter shade of eyeshadow all over your lid and then a contrasting shadow shade over your crease to define it. One of our favorite things about this makeup look is its versatility. If you’re looking to try a cut crease look on your own, we’ve pulled five of our favorite tutorials from Instagram.
