Master the Reverse Cat Eye Trend with These Simple Steps

If you’re up-to-date with the latest beauty trends on social media, you’ve probably noticed the reverse cat eye look dominating TikTok and Instagram. This edgy twist on the classic cat eye features winged eyeliner applied to the lower lash line instead of the upper, creating a daring, rebellious look that emphasizes your eyes’ shape and adds a sultry, smoldering effect.

The reverse cat eye focuses on the lower lash line, creating eyeliner wings at both the inner and outer corners of the eye. Celebrity makeup artists recommend keeping the rest of your makeup neutral to let your eyes stand out, with well-defined brows and a nude lip for a balanced look. Now, here's how to create a reverse cat eye in a few simple steps:

Step One: Prime Your Eyes

Proper preparation ensures your eyeshadow and eyeliner last all day. Use Blinc’s Eyeshadow Primer on both your upper and lower lids. Applying primer beneath your eyes is essential since the emphasis of this style is on the bottom eyelashes.

This primer is Clean, Vegan, Natural, and Organic with a  translucent formula which fills surface imperfections, creating a seamless and blurred canvas. Its formula is ultra-longwearing and fortified with Pro-Age Peptides, Vitamin E, and Alaria Esculenta Extract, keeping your makeup crease-free while enhancing your shadows and liners.

Step Two: Define Your Crease

To keep the upper lid defined and balanced, apply a transition shade in the crease of your upper eyelid using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Choose a color that’s two to three shades deeper than your skin tone for the best effect.

Use Blinc’s The Rare Gem Palette, which features 12 gemstone-inspired shades including buttery-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls, and glimmering metallics. Highly pigmented and comfortable to wear, these shades blend out effortlessly, allowing you to create a variety of looks for any occasion.

Step Three: Sketch the Shape

Start with a soft pencil like Blinc’s Eyeliner Pencil, an ultra-longwearing, CLEAN, VEGAN, and waterproof innovation that eliminates smudging, fading, or transferring. The formula allows for easy layering and blending, drying down to a captivating matte finish that lasts all day.

Gently outline your bottom lash line with the pencil, then use a small eye brush to blend and diffuse the product. Create a wing that extends outward and slightly upward, resembling a traditional cat eye but from below. Extend the line at the corner of the eyes into a mini wing and line the lower waterline for a more dramatic effect.

Step Four: Define the Upper Lash Line

To balance the focus on the lower lash line, add subtle definition to the upper lash line. Draw a slender line along the top lashes using Blinc's Eyeliner Pencil. The gel-like pencil delivers bold, intense color in a single swipe and can be smudged with a pencil brush for a soft effect.

Step Five: Intensify the Look

To add drama and sharpness, go over the liner with Blinc's Tubing Liquid Eyeliner. This ultra-longwearing, Vegan, and Gluten-Free liquid liner creates a jet-black, water-resistant color layer that binds to your skin and won't fade, flake, smudge, or run. The precise brush tip enables you to intensify the finish, locking in the look for a glamorous touch.

Step Six: Finish Off with Volumizing Mascara

Complete your dramatic eye makeup look with a volumizing mascara. Use Blinc's Tubing Ultravolume Mascara that offers extreme volume without causing the lashes to flake or feel heavy. Its Tubing Technology ensures that your mascara stays put all day, even through sweat and tears, and removes easily with just water and gentle pressure.
