If we have a current woman crush, it’s definitely on Cara Delevingne. Not only is she outspoken, hilarious and gorgeous, she singlehandedly inspired us to grow our brows back to mega-bold status, all while injecting some much-needed personality back into the world of modeling.
But lately, she’s turned her talents to acting—starring in Paper Towns, the upcoming Peter Pan and, of course, as Slay-Z in Taylor Swift’s VMA winning Bad Blood video.
She took the stage along with the rest of Taylor’s BFF squad last night, and while we were naturally coveting those famous brows, we also couldn’t help falling in love with her subtle, smudgy cat eye. Cat eye liner is always classic, but it’s going to be especially big this Fall—and Cara’s simple, sexy take on it is calling our names.
And the best part? You can get this look at the drugstore. Celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern used one of our all-time favorite liquid eyeliners, Physician’s Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Liner ($9.99, ulta.com) to create this glam red carpet look. “I tightly lined her lash line, top and bottom, with Sexy Boost liquid liner,” Molly tells us. “Then I smudged and extended the line. I wanted her to look effortless with a subtle hint of rock n roll!”
And Sexy Boost liner is a great choice for a look like this. The applicator has a thin marker-like tip and comfortable to hold lid that makes delicate lines impossibly easy. The liner itself is really great—truly matte black, with a long lasting formula that doesn’t crack or fade throughout the day. We love getting in with a thin eyeshadow brush just before it sets and blending it a little; this gives a defined yet soft eye makeup look like Cara’s.
One thing’s for sure: this is definitely the liner look we want to copy most for Fall. Cara inspires us yet again.
