Do you, like us, base the majority of your life decisions on what Rihanna does? If so, you’re in for a treat. Right now we can’t get enough of her colored cat eye.
The traditional black cat eye is out and the colored cat eye is in. Now you can rock this fashion in bright neons, bold earth tones and pastels. Let’s talk about finding the right products and learning to do the job right. Then we’ll dish on where you can wear the colored cat eye and maximize its true potential.
Match the Color to Your Skin Tone
The truly delightful thing about a colored cat eye is that most people can rock most shades on their peepers. Unless you have a truly picky complexion, you can probably pull off mint or violet just as well as black. It might take a bit more effort to wear metallic pink or emerald green, but if you work with a makeup artist to find the right products, you’ll be fine.
Find the Right Products
The best bet when you’re looking for your new look is to head to a spa or salon for their professional opinion. They’ll help you explore colors that match your skin specifications, and sensitivity. If you’re in luck, they’ll have the products available for purchase!
Learn to Do the Thing
Again, the first time you try the colored cat eye, you’ll want to see a makeup artist. This will make it easier to learn to do it. In addition to helping you find the right products, if you have a hard time doing that yourself, they will also show you exactly how to line your eyes, add mascara without smearing the color, and pair the liner color with the right shadow shades.
Where to Wear a Colored Cat Eye
So just what sort of event are you heading to? Weddings, for example, call for something a bit more understated – whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid or a guest. The colored cat eye is the perfect accessory for a quirkier nuptial ceremony.
Red is a delightful color if you’re trying to make a statement at a big dance, and also sparks envy at the club. Ditto yellow, which is a nontraditional eye color but super fun nonetheless.
