Trends of Spring 2011 – Cat Eye

The graphic cat eye has definitely made a comeback in the collections of many designers for the Spring ‘11 runways.  But put away your basic black liquid liner.  This coming year is all about color.  Vibrant yellows, day-glow greens, sophisticated whites, and sultry purples; almost every shade except for the iconic black.  Begin this look by lining the upper lashline in a thick cat eye shape with a cream shadow, flicking it out slightly out the outer corner.  Using an angled liner brush, tap a powder shadow over the line to prevent creasing and fading, and you’re all set!  No worrying about base shadows, lower lashlines, or waterlines; this look is simply about a well drawn, thick line.  Put a layer or two of mascara on the upper lashes for a bit of drama, but beware of going too thick and obscuring your trendy look.

Gorgeous, no?
