Cat eye styles come in all shapes and sizes – and we can’t get enough of them! From blogger snaps to glossy magazine pages, we’re drawn to these bold and beautiful looks. As show-stopping as they are, it doesn’t always feel attainable to recreate on your own or know where to rock them. We’ve pulled a handful of our favorite creative cat eye looks and ABLE Founder Dana Rae shares some product and application tips to help you pull off these looks.
Seen on the runway at Jill Stuart during NYFW SS18 with effortless hair and otherwise “barely there” makeup, we suggest taking the plunge with this look for a concert or birthday party for a seriously rocking evening look.
DR Tip: “A durable liquid liner is best for this look so that the formula doesn’t run. Starting in the center of your eye, begin to draw a line along your bottom lashline, finishing in a cat eye flick pointing upwards”
Double the wing, double the fun. Isn’t that what they always say? While this look may seem ultra-daring, it is commonly used on red carpets for a wide-eyed effect.
DR Tip: “First, create a classic cat eye on your top lid and follow that up with mascara. Once this is complete, create a smaller, thinner cat eye along the bottom lashline. Make sure the two cat eyes are pointing in the same direction with a blank space in between them.”
Did you retire your colors along with your swimsuits just after Labor Day? Think again. The right color cat eye can complete any look all year round. Navy, Eggplant, and Forest Green are a few colors that we just adore for the cooler months, but we never say no to a neon, metallic, or glitter for a little extra edge!
DR Tip: “The best way to create a bold, colorful cat eye is to first apply a bright pencil liner and then set it with a bright eyeshadow in the same color. The layering of the two high pigmented colors will not only pump up the volume on your color of choice but it will also help the products stay in place”
As proven at Versus Versace SS’18 the bigger & more dramatic your wings – the more badass you will look! Try this look at the next dinner party you’re organizing … or on any given day that you want to walk on the wild side.
DR Tip: “You will want a liquid liner and a pencil for this look. After applying a classic cat eye with an extra long wing, connect your top wing and bring it along your bottom lash line and into the inner corner of your eye. Make sure both sides of your eye are connected with a point. Then rim your waterline with pencil liner.”
