Shake up Your Look with Reversed Cat-Eye Makeup
Another season, another beauty trend, and now, it’s time to turn things upside down. Yes, you are right; we are talking about the reversed cat-eye makeup that has shaken up the runway looks lately.
First, it’s worth mentioning that the reversed cat-eye trend-setters are the Instagram and Tik-Tok beauty gurus, and only then was it featured on catwalks. Now let’s understand what this trend is.
What Is a Reversed Cat-Eye Makeup?
The cat-eye eyeliner taking the beauty world by storm is now taking quite a reverse form, moving onto the lower lash. It’s an elegant and, at the same time, fun and edgy way of eyeliner drawing.
Kim Kardashian rocked reversed cat eye makeup at Cannes Film Festival in 2016. So big and elongated, her eyes look so stunning with this eyeliner.
Kristen Stewart experimented with this makeup look at her film premiere ‘Come Swim’ in 2017.
How to Get a Smokey Reverse Cat Eye Makeup?
Willing to try a new reverse cat eye makeup trend? This makeup look is effortless to get; follow the steps to get the look:
1. Before getting down to creating a reverse cat-eye look, prep your eyes area; you can use concealer or eye premier on your upper lead and the border of your brows. Thus you will have a clean canvas before starting anything else.
2. Play with eyeshadows (black, blue, green, etc.). If you want to get the reversed cat eye makeup with eyeshadows and don’t have a suitable brush at hand, you can use even q-tips. Dip the q-tip in the eyeshadow and start drawing the line on the outer corner of the eye and slightly move to the inner corner. You can use sticky tape to draw the outer wing flawlessly. Then, use cotton buds to clean the edges.
3. Now, as eyeshadow is on, it’s time to pass to your waterlines. Draw on your waterline with a black pencil or crayon.
4. Apply mascara on your upper and lower lashes. If you are opting for a more voluminous effect, apply false lashes.
You can use these products to get the look:
Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow
Haus Labs by Lady Gaga Eye-Dentify Gel Pencil Eyeliner (offers 20 versatile shades to draw lines)
Lancome Hypnose Mascara 01 Black Noir Hypnotic
Natural Faux Mink Eyelashes, 12mm long thick lashes with fluffy volume (you can apply the lashes without glue)
