New Takes On The Old Cat Eye
The traditional cat eye requires no fewer than four essential tools: 1) a liquid liner that won’t bleed, smudge, or dry out mid-wing (a recommendation: Stila All Day), 2) a primer or eyeshadow to act as a base, 3) makeup remover and an eyeliner brush to dip said makeup remover into, and 4) patience (by the pound). And those are just the basic tools. For extra credit there’s always a pencil liner you can draw on first (it helps the liquid to stay on longer), and tape to get the wing angle juuust right. So much rigmarole for not even an inch of makeup. So, ITG is making the whole process a little easier; we’re going to update the cat eye.
New takes on the old cat eye aren’t new, but allow us to toss our hat into this somewhat crowded ring. Working alongside makeup artist Ingeborg G., and model Shreya Chaudhary, ITG whipped up seven different ways to pay homage to the traditional winged look. They are deconstructed, colorful, and even a little weird at times! But more importantly, they’re all easy. And they're primed to be interpreted any way you please, so you can make them your own. Enough of that now. Let’s get to the looks.
