Cat-eye: Modern twist on the classic

The cat eye is a classic however it can look really old fashioned; the straight lines can feel very harsh so blending out on the bottom edge makes the look more soft and modern.

Mixing up the classic 50’s look of matte eyeshadow and using glitter or shimmery shades can take the look in to the 21st century. I was using the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 palette mainly the light grey shimmery shade on the lid then a mix of the purple shades, both matte and glitter, in the crease.

I wanted there to be more definition on eye shape and concentrate the shading in the crease not the outer corner. Keeping the smokey effect away from the wing area really helps highlight this section.

I made sure to add a mix of black and the dark purples on the lower lash line to balance out the look. I also blended out the bottom of the wing; I didn’t want the wing to be blended out completely but I wanted it to be more soft.

Finish the look off with brow gel and mascara and then you are done.
