The Glittery, Punk Cat Eye Look

The following is a guest post from our friends at The Beauty Department.

We did Rachel Bilson’s eye makeup recently for the premiere of her new film The To Do List (a hilarious must-see, by the way). Because her Valentino dress was so sweet and feminine, we decided the makeup needed a little edge to it. So we punked out the eye with an exaggerated wing, then balanced it with a pink cheek and lip. And the best part? The cat eye wasn't just matte black, but glittery—so it had a flirty, punk element to it. Yeah, it was pretty awesome—and easy to recreate at home, as a fun alternative to the classic black cat eye.
