Time to get practicing. There’s a new makeup trend making the rounds on TikTok and it’s a renovated classic cat eye or winged liner.
Although Kim Kardashian herself famously rocked one at Cannes in 2016 now this reverse cat-eye look has been around for a while.
It got popularity on TikTok when professional makeup artist Spencer gave a tutorial. In his viral TikTok, Spencer transforms a dark eyeliner into an intensely smoky under-eye look that has everyone inspired to recreate it.
This super glam reverse cat-eye is surprisingly simple. You have to follow just 3 steps:
- The only tools required are a small brush and pencil liner. It follows the same steps as your regular cat-eye or winged eyeliner, but on your lower lash line instead of its usual eyelid placement.
- You simply need to bend your pencil liner along your entire lower lash line and smudge it out with a brush – just be sure to wing out your liner at the outer corner to create the “reverse” or “upside-down” effect.
- The final step is blending out the entire look until you’ve reached your desired level of glam and it’s blown out to perfection and don’t forget mascara on your lower lashes and a pair of falsies.
For your weekend eve night have a look at this short tutorial:
Anybody can experiment with primary pops of color like dark green or an electric blue. But for everyday look people can pick dark brown also.
Last year, the “fox eye” had a firm grip on the makeup trends world despite many criticizing it as a cultural appropriation of Asian beauty features. Seeing a new and less tricky trend in town is appreciated.
