I have always loved the dramatic cat eyes of the 1960’s, worn by iconic beauties like Sophia Lauren and Brigitte Bardot. My favorite part of the look is how the edges of the liner tended to be a bit smudged and slightly soft. So when the stunning Maja and Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection (which happens to include a gorgeous kajal eye pencil!) arrived at the studio on the same day, I knew it was kismet.
I only used two products to create the cat eye, the #VBxEstéeLauder Eye Kajal in Black Saffron/Vanille and the Eye Ink Mascara. I drew the shape around Maja’s eye with the kajal pencil, then used the edge of my finger to smooth and drag the edges. Simple, quick and I actually like it when the kajal melts a little bit and starts to run. It has a cool lived-in, sexy, up all night at a rock concert vibe.
