How cute is this cut crease look? We love the little silver glitter cut crease line combined with the bright blue eyeliner. The little rhinestone under that lower lash line is a gorgeous touch.

Thick black eyeliner paired with a thick glittery gold cut crease line of the same thickness is a simple yet effective look that will really show off that gorgeous eye shape of yours.

Using two contrasting colors on either side of the cut crease can help bring out that gorgeous curve of yours. We love the combination of blue and purple with either yellow or orange.
Cut Crease Smokey Eye
This simple smokey eye look with a nude eyelid and a smokey black cut crease looks stunning with a set of long striking eyelashes.
Reverse Cut Crease
Who says the cut crease has to go from the outer v of your eye? Reverse this cut crease look by making the highlighting color start from the tear duct. We love how the white and black meet together in the cut crease.
Sunset Cut Crease
Use a subtle black or brown cut crease to accentuate the eyeshadow and the curve of your eyes. This looks stunning when you have a gorgeous sunset look like this one.
Cut Crease With Rhinestones
We’ve seen cut creases with glitter, but cut creases with rhinestones are just that extra glittery step further. Be sure to place the rhinestones above the crease so that any eye movement you make won’t knock them off or get uncomfortable. You can even create this cut crease look as far as your highlight or brown bone is necessary.
Natural Cut Crease Look
Using a nude eyeshadow palette you can create a natural cut crease look that will accentuate your eyes without giving the appearance of wearing too much makeup.
Neon Cut Crease
Another cut crease look that is great for those banging late-night parties. Pairing a neon cut crease look with neon nails is look that is sure to turn some heads.
Purple Unicorn Cut Crease
Rather than using glitter on your cut crease line, go for glitter on your eyelids and use a complimenting shade to create shape in your eyeshadow look.
Purple And Orange Cut Crease
This little touch of orange contrasts with the purple and gives a subtle reverse-cut crease look that adds a little extra to your purple eyeshadow look.
Neon Orange Cut Crease
