Beauty Trend: Cat Eyes

Seductive, alluring, and just plain pretty, the cat eye remains a strong trend for Fall 2010.  A clean face paired with dramatic eyeliner makes a timeless, retro statement. It looks good on everyone, and the line can be double-drawn for even more drama. Adding fake lashes can add volume, but be sure to keep the lips nude for a daytime look, and save the red for night. Whether drawn in thin or thick, or winged a little or a lot, there are many options to make this look your own.

Gorgeous, tousled locks with a clean face and exaggerated black liner at Blumarine looks retro sexy (left). A tight chignon, pale face, and dark eyes with a double wing are a perfect dramatic “after 5” look, seen at Chado Ralph Rucci (right).

Lots of color, fake eyelashes, and a prominent wing are couture-appropriate at Christian Dior (left). It’s a Mad Men affair at Monique Lhullier, with pastel make-up, tan skin, a ponytail, and a 50s cat eye (right).

With so many inspirational beauty examples on how to wear the look, the cat eye is something to explore.
