Beauty Files- The Rise Of The Modern Cat-Eye

Ever since Edie Sedgwick winged out her heavy handed kohl liner in the sixties women the world over have never looked back. Classic, sexy and easy to do the cat-eye is the LBD -little black dress- of makeup. This season we saw the brilliant team of artists at MAC create a modern abstract interpretation with lines drawn across the eye socket, painted only from the outer and inner corners. At McQ the eyeliner was white not black and at Michael van de Ham gold leaf was added to complement the cat-eye creating “Halos Of Sunshine”.

Zac Posen and Altuzarra chose more graphic, bold looks to complement the clothing. At Erdem there was only a slightly elongated triangle at the outer corner of the eye that looked like a full on cat-eye when a model faced the camera head-on. MAC artist Andrew Gallimore christened the technique he used backstage at Erdem as “floating” flicks.

Over at the Aquascutum show the girls were treated to one of our personal favorite versions, the smoky cat-eye. Zac Posen and Altuzarra chose more graphic, bold looks to complement the clothing.
