The Backwards Cut Crease:
Have you ever tried to nail a ‘cut crease’ look but just ended up blending all of your shadow colors into something…well, blah? Then this technique will be perfect for you.
Begin by applying a primer to your entire lid. Then, using your favorite application tool, smooth your highlight color underneath your brow across the brow bone. For this technique, we’ll do the crease first. Select your palette and use the darkest shade in your crease, being careful not to go below your crease line.
Then choose a slightly lighter shade, and use that to blend between the top edge of your crease, and the shade you place onto your brow bone. Be sure to blend well to get a perfect upwards ombre effect here.
Next, choose a light color and apply it from the base of each eyelid up to the crease line. This line should stop right at the beginning of the crease color you applied earlier.

Lastly, finish off with your favorite style of eyeliner and mascara for a complete look.
