Instead of appliquéing a piece of fabric on top of a background fabric, in reverse appliqué the piece is put under the background fabric. The background fabric is cut away to reveal the piece under it.

This is an example of reverse applique. The white fabric on top has been cut away and appliquéd using an invisible stitch to reveal the red heart fabric underneath. A printed floral fabric was placed under the white fabric for the two birds.
