Statement Eyes

Proving that some beauty trends truly do stand the test of time, everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Katy Perry has sported a cat-eye. Not only is the dramatic swipe of eyeliner flattering to all eye shapes but it is also simple to master, says Sarah Lucero, a celebrity makeup artist with Stila Cosmetics.

How-to: Lucero advises starting with a wash of a pale, neutral shadow, applied with a finger, across the entire lid (no matter your complexion) to brighten the eyes. Without it, a dark liner could make you look tired. Next, brush on a few coats of black mascara. Once dry, it forms a ledge that you can use as a guide. Last, grab a clean lip brush (for an extra-thick line), dip it in black gel liner (which doesn’t require as steady a hand as liquid liner does), and drag the brush along the base of the top lashes, flipping the line up a bit at a couple of lashes from the end. Balance with soft pink lipstick.
