Cat-eye liner gets a flip side

A new twist on the beloved cat-lined eye is taking spring by storm. Simply flip it around and watch it smolder, the upside-down cat-eye (or under-liner) is now officially a thing.

From Stella McCartney’s spring 2013 runway to Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle’s new ad campaign starring Kiera Knightley, tracing eyeliner along the lower lashes with a winged flourish is a burgeoning trend in the cosmetics world. Young fashion muses Zoe Kravitz and Camilla Belle have even taken the look to the street, with Kravitz sporting an upside-down cat-eye at the Divergent premiere and Belle painting on a thin, shimmery gray shadow extended from her lower lash line at an recent H&M event.

Equal parts modern and feminine, the upside-down cat-eye is versatile, paired with a classic cat-eye or applied solo, and works perfectly well with black or colored waterproof liner. Here are some great upside-down cat-eye looks to love!
