You know that song by Missy Elliot, something to do with flipping it and reversing it? Yeah, well, it totally applies to today's little how-to: the reverse cat eye. While we all love a classic winged liner, right now it's all about turning that makeup trend on its head (quite literally) and drawing the slick, elongated line on the lower water rim. We saw it at this year's Kenzo show, then Pat McGrath introduced it to her fanatic fans via Instagram, and now beauty buffs worldwide are attempting to master the look. Game enough to try it? Follow these steps:


STEP ONE: Line the lower lash line with a dramatic swipe of black eyeliner. Reach for MAC Eye Kohl in Smoulder to achieve this.

STEP TWO: Layer the line with MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon to set the pigment and create depth. Gently smudge out the shadow with a fat short shadow brush.

STEP THREE: Define the edges with MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack, flicking the ends out to create the reverse cat eye effect.

STEP FOUR: Gently line the upper water line, inner eye corners and root of the lashes with black kohl and connect to the lower cat eye for extra definition.

STEP FIVE (optional): Apply false lashes to the lower lash lines. Pair with mascara on the top lashes, glossy lids, illuminated skin and a pinky-nude lip for a super-modern take on grungy punk beauty.
