4 New Ways To Wear A Cat Eye

Shannon Farrell

Cat-eye liner may seem simple and straightforward — extend the liner out and up. However, we’ve learned there is no one way to wear a cat eye (or create it) after all of the memorable looks during Spring 2013 Fashion Week. Check out our favorites below.

Go Thin
The version at Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 was simple and natural, with a twist. The line started super thin at the inner corner of the eye, getting thicker and thicker across the lash line, and finishing with a long, straight flick at the corner.

Go Bold With Shadow
For a bolder look like the models sported at Guy Laroche Spring 2013, use a black shadow on the lid and extend out in a triangle shape to create a cat-eye hybrid. The thick lower lash line helps to define and complete the look.

Go Soft With A Neutral Shade
The cat eye at Richard Chai Spring 2013 was similar to the one at Guy Laroche, using gray cream shadow to create a triangular shape. Note how this cat eye isn’t actually a liner look at all. There is no color on the bottom lash line and the shadow doesn’t touch the upper lash line, but sits above it.

Go Smoky
For a smoky effect, copy the look at Marc Jacobs Spring 2013. Start with two pencil lines, one at the upper lash line and another at the crease of the lid, extending both past the outer corner of the eye. Smudge both lines with a shadow brush to soften.
