Get The Sexy Cat Eyes Look This 2011
After London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week 2011 followed the hottest trend in makeup with the ever so sexy and dramatic Cat Eyes. Lanvin showcased the sassy cat look on the runway and everyone else seemed to follow suit. Makeup artist Pat McGrath created the sexy cat eyes look using Cover Girl’s Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx. She kept it natural by leaving soft, smudgy corners at the outer ends. She created the look by drawing a thick line starting from the center of the lash line and extending it beyond the outer corner of the eyes.
“I wanted it to look like the girls did their own makeup,” she said.
For a more dramatic and attention seeking look you can go for the traditional black eyeliner stretched to the outer sides to create a glamorous look. You can pair it up with classic red lip color for that purr-fect night out.
You can be daring and stretch the liner to an outer extreme while finely outlining the upper and lower lids for a really sassy look. Wear a pale nude or rosy gloss or lip balm to keep all the attention towards your eyes.
Other Cat eyes makeup trend seen on the Paris Fashion week runway were by Dior, Valentino, Chanel, Lanvin, etc. Everyone wanted to create the chic and glamorous look. You can use contrasting or complementing eye shadow to go with your ensemble.

Lady Gaga was spotted making her entry at the Paris Fashion Week 2011 with really long blonde pigtails wig and she really caught everyone’s attention with her feline-inspired makeup. She certainly made a statement that even Anna Wintour couldn’t help notice. To create Lady Gaga’s Cat eyes, use a shimmery golden beige eye shadow on the eyelid and inner corners with a rich bronze on the crease, finally use heavy black liquid eyeliner winged all the way out on the top of the forehead while camouflaging the brows. Use bright red lip color on the lips to complete the look. Cat eyes for sure rule this season.
Cats seem to pop up everywhere this season. Other Hollywood beauties following this hot makeup trend are Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox. These looks are not defined as the typical dramatic cat eyes, but they are just simple and sexy and a whole lot easier to do. You can create these cat eye shapes by using a stencil or eyeliner pen for a purr-fect look just like this.
