If you thought the cat eye was limited to a simple flick, think again; there are numerous ways to turn this classic style into a fresh, cool, and seriously modern makeup look.

Read on for four simple ways to change up your cat-eye liner today.

1

Cool Corners

This look is all about focusing on the actual flick and not lining the top lash line, making for a clean, simple, and modern take on the cat eye. It still helps create the illusion of wider eyes, but with less effort and less product!

Bold Blocking

Instead of just drawing along your top lash line and flicking out, use your liner to create a block of black on your eyelid and then adding a thick wing. This makes it much bolder and creates a slight “smoky eye” effect, perfect if you’ve got plans after work.

Flip Reverse

It really is as simple as flip-reversing it with this cat-eye look. Instead of focusing on your upper lash line, use your lower lash line to create a striking winged eye.
