Look we love: Olivia Wilde's cat eye

We love the dramatic sweep of black liner across Wilde’s upper lash line, and the masterful feminine flick that pulls out towards the edge of her brows

The side-swept fringe and loose face-framing waves help soften Wilde’s strong, square jaw (much better than her blunt bangs earlier this year), and the auburn undertones in her hair look warm and natural. We love the dramatic sweep of black liner across Wilde’s upper lash line, and the masterful feminine flick that pulls out towards the edge of her brows. But the retro-styled cat eye looks fresh and not dated by pairing soft cinnamon-pink cheeks with a matching lip, for a more monochromatic, current beauty. From head to toe, her all-black ensemble (dress, shoes, clutch and liquid liner) is simple and sexy in all the right places. Well done, Wilde.

How to get the look: Using a liquid liner or gel pot (which ever you prefer), line your upper lashes in short strokes while resting your elbow on a hard surface for extra support and better control. Blend the liner as much as possible into the base of your lashes. Note: the closer you go to the tear duct with liner, the closer set your eyes will appear to be, so decide which works best for your face before hand. To create the winged tip, follow the natural shape/curve of your lower lashes, extending the (imaginary) line up towards the outer edge of your eyebrow.
