I love cat eyes!
So sexy (at least the kind achieved via liner, not plastic surgery a la Jocelyn Wildenstein). Taylor Swift has the perfect eyes to pull-off this look since her eyes are so narrow, though I think Jordana Brewster’s cat liner is executed the best. A girl I went to High School with actually works with Lancome now so I asked her if she could get us the scoop on how to achieve this look. She delivered and I was able to get some tips from Lancome Makeup Artist Andrew Sotomayor! Sotomayor told me that to achieve this look you need an eye primer, a matte ivory eye shadow, brow pencil, liquid liner and mascara. He suggests — Ombre Perfecteur in Clair, Color Design Eye Shadow in Daylight, Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet, Artliner liquid liner in Noir, and Definicils mascara in Black (all from Lancome). Once you’ve got all the essentials, Sotomayor says start “at the inner corner of the eye and drag it along the upper lash line (tip: pressing hard creates a thick line, pressing more softly creates a thinner line). To get that classic look, draw a sharp angle that starts at the outer corner of the eye and points to the end of your eyebrow.” Are you going to be sporting cat liner this season?

    I love, love, love cat eyes! They’re the only style that works with my face – the smoky eye makes me look like I have an abusive boyfriend. i’m glad these are coming back.

    I have been doing Cat eyes for 20 years, it’s the only style that brings out my eyes. Depending on event it’ll be lighter or heavier. Love it!

    Cat eyes are in! If I could master the perfect swoop of eyeliner I would be sporting cat eyes all the time! These celebs really pull off the look, although I wonder if it is just a trend that will end shortly…
