Trends: The return of the cat eye

It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book, but winged eyeliner made a comeback on the runway at Paris Fashion Week for the Autumn/Winter 2015/16 collections.

Both Chanel and Saint Laurent featured the look, from two very different angles. While the aesthetic under Karl Lagerfeld’s direction was feline and elegant, Hedi Slimane sent models down the runway sporting a heavier, grungier, more cartoonish version of the technique.

The classic cat eye, à la Chanel, looks fantastic on everyone, but recreating it at home is not as simple as it appears. The first thing to remember is that this look is most effective when used with a natural, smooth foundation base.

Meanwhile over at Saint Laurent the look was taken up several notches, resulting in a high-voltage grunged-out effect. A little severe for everyday beauty, perhaps, but it’s relatively easy to rough up your feline eye if you’re more of a tomcat than a kitten.
