Are cat-eyes back? Just look to the fall runways...

Who doesn’t like cats? Okay... so a lot of people don’t. But I for one share a healthy dose of adoration for our feline friends. 

Cats are well groomed, they know what they want, and perhaps their most winning feature is their large, curious, winged-out eyes.

Lucky then that one of the biggest beauty trends to sweep through the past few fashion week’s was the resurgence of large statement eyelids. Everyone from Chloé to Gucci was sporting this resurrected makeup trend. 

Here are some of the best looks to recreate:

Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2013

It was all about a simple and clean fluid line. 

Gucci Fall 2013 

The cat-eye silhouette was created by blending plum eyeshadow right up to the brow bone.

 Anna Sui Fall 2013

Black eyeliner was drawn neatly all over the eye-lid and flicked to the side. The addition of eyeliner dabbed onto the bottom lash-line gave this cat-eye a baby doll twist.

Michael Kors Fall 2013

Smoky black eyeshadow was concentrated on the outer edges of the eyelids.

Lanvin Fall 2013

Lanvin gave the cat-eye sci-fi appeal by lining both the upper and lower lash-line with eyeliner and then drawing the pencil along the top brown bone, to make the eyes appear even bigger.

Which makeup look was your favourite?
