Cat eyes are back girlies, by this I mean strokes of eye liner that taper out at the edge of the eye, making a striking statement and enhancing natural beauty. When seen at Christian Dior on the catwalk as a key make -up feature you know it’s going to be big. Here are a few more images from the Spring 2012 shows:
Cat eyes have been a reoccurring trend throughout time and loved by some of the most glamourous of Hollywood stars:
Pictured here in her famous role of Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor made history with the thick streaks of liner on the top and bottom lids tapering out from the edge of the eye. Such a statement that was never before seen in film.
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s had a softer take on the ‘cat eye’ using a thiner line curling out from the eye, they switched between using brown and black eyeliner as well as mixing in with eye shadow for a more subtle effect.
She was renowned for the signature statement liner around her almond shaped eyes and excentuating her va va voom look.
The go to girl for smoky eyes and the smouldering sexy look. Brigitte uses layers of liner to create her iconic stand out eyes.
Mad Men’s trends have had a massive impact on fashion bringing the sixties style back and as seen here, the simple upper lid lined with black, going for a more natural look.

As seen in these images, different takes on the eyeliner trend with thick and thin strokes, injection of colour and curled out edges, which do you prefer?
If your not confident wielding the liquid liner into tapered creations you can always try Christian Dior’s new velvet eyes, reusable designs to stick close to the lash line:
These will definitely make a statement and enhance your make-up look, I know I’ll be layering up the liner to create my own vrsion of these ‘Cat Eye’s,’ will you? XOXO.
