Trend Alert: Cat Eyes

A recent trend seen on the fall runway shows has been the cat eye, known for it’s trademark extended eyeliner application. It’s actually a classic look taken from the 1950s and 1960s. Colors can range from dramatic black to colorful violets. You can achieve this unique look with a gel, liquid or kohl pencil eye liner, depending on how soft or precise you want your cat eye to be. You might find it easier to start with a lighter pencil for better control and trace with liquid liner after. There are various ways to achieve this look, from dark and daring to soft and smoky. One example of a dramatic looking cat eye is to skip applying the liner to the inner corners of the eye and then extend the line beyond the outer edge of the eye and upwards. Finish off with two coats of your favorite mascara. Couple the look with a bold red lipstick and you’ll look like you just stepped off the runway yourself!
