Reverse Cat Eye Makeup Trend


Makeup trends come and go like the seasons. While the good ones stay, some fade out within no time at all. Regardless, we are always excited about keeping up with the new makeup fads and informing you all about them. Speaking of makeup trends, you must be aware of the famous Kylie Jenner-like winged liner that most people were obsessed with in 2020. However, there’s another trend that’s gaining just as much popularity this year, if not more. We’re talking about the reverse cat-eye makeup that the Internet just can’t get enough of!

For the unversed, the reverse cat-eye is basically the classic cat-eye, just inverted. That is, the cat-eye technique is applied on your lower lash line instead of your lids.

Needless to say, it looks really glam and fierce! In another video, Spencer explained how to achieve the look. First, he applied a grey-toned eye shadow to his upper lid, and used the same shade to run it through the lower lash line. Further, he applied gel black eyeliner to the waterline. “Extend that inner corner, then wing it out on the outer corner,” he explained. After that, using a detailed brush with some black eye shadow, diffuse out the edges. You can then accentuate the outer corner, and drag the liner to get that sexy feline shape.

The reverse cat eye gives a fierce, sexy and refreshing look and we’re loving it! After you’ve aced the reverse cat eye, you can also get creative, add a few elements of your own, and try it out in different colours.
