Leopard is my favorite print and I can’t get enough of anything made out of fur. It seems only natural that I would continue my recent kitty-crazed obsession with the look of cat eye makeup. This retro beauty trend, which first appeared on 60’s icons like Sophia Loren and Twiggy, was freshly spotted on New York’s fashion runways last week.
Corey Lynn Calter packed plenty of prints, beautiful furs, and bright colors into her presentation at New York Fashion Week. Not only were a few cat-eye frames incorporated into her runway looks, but the models also sported retro makeup styles.
Depending on the colors and application techniques used, cat eye makeup can look dramatic or playful. I favor the bold pink TooFaced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner, as seen on the first model, but blue is always beautiful too. Outfits from Calter’s gorgeous show can be viewed here.
