Vintage Spotting: Updated Cat Eye

Written by emilyc

The cat eye makeup reminiscent of the 1950s and 60s makes a comeback! Channel a pretty pin-up for day, then modernize this retro look for night.

Keep things simple with winged liquid black eyeliner on the top lid for daytime. The simplicity of the cat eye allows you to be bold with a daring lip color!

Carry your vintage vibe on into the evening by combining two looks in one: the go-to smokey eye paired with the winged liner. These two techniques join forces to create a modern version of this vintage comeback!
