Eye makeup ideas are fun because they can let you really test your creativity. Whether you are a fan of sophisticated cat-eye or sultry smokey eye makeup, the sky is the limit. You can blend multiple eye shadows to create a minimalist or dramatic effect. You can also use a duochrome eyeshadow, where the pigments make it look like two different colors depending on how the light hits it. If you love experimenting with eye makeup, you need to try the cut crease look. Like the name, when you try this little hack, you basically use eyeshadow or concealer to draw dramatic lines into the crease to accentuate the shape of your eyes. 


Celebrity makeup artist A.J. Crimson told Mind Body Green, "You can elongate a cut crease, you can make it more round, you can manipulate it in so many different ways to get the effect that you want out of it," where you play with light and shadow. Maybelline describes cut crease as a combination of "optical illusion" and "beauty trend" where lighter and darker colors can give you "Bambi-huge and defined" eyes. You can use a concealer all over your lid and define the crease with an angled brush for a dramatic effect. Ready to try the cutting crease trend? Here are the best concealers for creating a cut crease.

Morphe White Concealer

If you are worried that your eye shape cannot rock the cut crease trend, you don't need to because anyone can rock the look. Savannah St. Jean, makeup artist and owner of Savannah Rae Beauty, told Mind Body Green, "The good thing about it is literally every single eye can have a cut crease." The only difference is that it will look different from one person to another depending on their eye shape.


Real Beauty School calls Morphe White Concealer their "holy grail concealer" because white gives you the most dramatic effect by making it pop. This full-coverage concealer is long-lasting and transfer-proof, so it won't let you down. According to the brand, it is ophthalmologist tested and free of fragrance and parabens.

Maybelline Super Stay Active Wear Liquid Concealer

If you think cutting crease is a newish trend, think again. Celebrity makeup artist Blondie at Exclusive Artists told Refinery29, "Cut crease was originally used to create definition to the eyes in the golden age of Hollywood before the days of color photographs." So, it is quite a classic trend.


Go Beautilicious loves Maybelline Super Stay Active Wear Liquid Concealer because it is a full coverage concealer, making it super easy to cut creases. It has a nice creamy texture that makes it easily blendable without making the skin look too chalky. According to Maybelline, it is transfer and sweat-resistant and lasts a whopping 30 hours! It comes with a curve flex applicator to make it super easy to maneuver.

e.l.f. Cosmetics 16HR Camo Concealer

Makeup artist and vlogger Mayerling Cintron told Refinery29, "Cut crease requires you work from top to bottom, a transition shade is the wash of color — preferably matte — you see before the bolder, more opaque shades are layered on top." Therefore, choosing a matte concealer over one with a radiant or a lighter finish will give you a sharper effect.


Beauty Brain Blush recommends e.l.f. Cosmetics 16HR Camo Concealer because it is also full coverage and works as a great base for eye shadow. E.l.f. Cosmetics claims this concealer has a super matte finish that won't accentuate fine lines but keeps the area moisturized with zero shine. It comes with a large doe foot applicator for the most precise application for bigger and brighter-looking eyes.

Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial Strength Full Coverage Cream Concealer

According to Ipsy, there are two ways you can try the cutting crease trend. One is the classic way, where all you need is eyeshadow and a primer, and the second is using a foundation; this slightly more pro way of jazzing up the classic trend requires a few more products, but nothing a little practice can't help with. If you don't have a foundation, a concealer can work equally well.


Byrdie speaks highly of Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial Strength Full Coverage Cream Concealer, and once you find out why, we think you will love it too. Celebrity makeup artist Carissa Ferreri told the outlet, "This concealer has really good coverage, and it has a bit of a good tackiness to it, so [the pigment] is going to adhere really well." According to Benefit Cosmetics, this creamy formula has a matte finish and can easily conceal all blemishes.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

You can seriously change the shape of your eyes because cutting crease can make your eyes look huge by adding more depth (via Cosmopolitan). Of course, every eye shape is beautiful in its own unique way, but nothing wrong with playing with makeup to change it up sometimes, right?


Beautyfll calls Tarte Shape Tape Concealer one of the best concealers for creasing. According to Tarte Cosmetics, this full-coverage concealer has a natural matte finish. It can brighten your eyes, give them a "lifted" look, and is waterproof. You can also get it in a mini of this 2021 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner, perfect for vacations.
