Anokhi Buzz Anokhi DIY Entertainment & Gossip Nov 25, 2015

Rock this versatile look at your next holiday party or tone it down for a daytime wear.

Give your everyday glam a boost with a dramatic cut crease, an eye shadow application technique where the crease is defined or "cut" with a contrast color. From popstars to South Asian brides, everyone is jumping on the cut crease bandwagon. Rihanna's fierce look may seem intimidating to create at first but with a little practice and some guidance from beauty vloggers virtually anyone can master the cut crease.

It is quite an intense look and you might think that you won't be able to pull it off but there are variations like Adele's soft look. Here are three cut crease looks that will take you from daytime to party time and everything in between.
