If you haven’t been enamored by the beauty of the cut crease then we can’t relate because this makeup trend has us absolutely floored.

The precision of the lines, the blending of the shades, and the pop of color that it gives to the eye is absolutely stunning and requires some serious skills… and now we have the reverse cut crease to add. 

The reverse cut crease was created by makeup artist Ana Takahashi in November of 2021 and unlike the traditional cut crease, it inverts the eyeshadow color above the crease of the eye as opposed to leaving the area bare. 

The style has definitely caught a wave and spewed other makeup artists adding their very own twists and reimaginations.
