Does anyone have any tips on how to perfectly cut and blend the crease? Every time I do this the crease color gets all over my lid. Also what's the best brush to use for it?

Steven; appropriate skin prep goes a long way to achieving what you are seeking.. be certain to allow sufficient time for the primer/moisturizer to penetrate ...

I've migrated entirely to airbrush and virtual eliminated the aforementioned issues...
Please be aware that you'll need to be using a significantly lower psi in the sensitive lid area... test this on the soft skin under your wrist... if it dimples the skin here you'll need to go lower, it's a delicate dance to achieve an effective product stream at close proximity to the lid (as close as one inch for ornate decor...)

Also keep in mind that guns typically used for base i.e. foundation generally have nozzle sizes too large (0.35mm) for delicate ornate work like this I've found a gun with an 0.30mm nozzle far more appropriate here...  my current fav is the Iwata HP-C Plus

hope this helps...

You may need to use less product - or change to a different product depending on the look and the wear-ability you're wanting.

Use an eye pencil to cut the crease. Then use an angled brush to go over it with eye shadow. Apply a little translucent powder on your mobile lid before cutting the crease. Then you can brush away any fallout.

Use a dome brush or crease brush to apply to crease and sweep the brush back and forth along the crease. If you are getting shadow all of the eyelid area, you might be blending too much

What KDM said and I sometimes play with my sharpness by using pencil and blended with a smudge or crease brush depending on the amount fo cut/blend desired or both. Sometimes for it to be super shapr I'll do cream liner with a small angle brush. Have fun!
