Let’s be real: We’re seriously obsessed with the cat-eye eyeliner trend at the moment. That’s why we went crazy when we saw Victoria Justice’s graphic cat-eye. In a nutshell, this bold makeup is the perfect way to unleash your inner rock-star rebel, without any of the dangerous risks. “It’s super-edgy,” says makeup artist Kristina Brown, the mastermind behind the look. “It’s great for a gal who’s heading out on a Saturday night.” Sound good?

To create the thick cat-eye, Brown began by prepping Justice’s lids with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($20) and applying a neutral colour from Edward Bess’ Prismette Eyeshadow Quad ($68). Next, she used Chanel’s Le Crayon Khol ($29) in Noir to draw a line and a wing past the lash line and over the crease for a mod effect. Then, she traced over it with Shiseido's The Makeup Accentuating Cream Eyeliner ($26) in No. 1 and a flat-tipped brush.
Brown advises keeping q-tips and makeup remover handy to quickly correct mistakes. “Try a couple different shapes,” she says. “You have to pay attention to the shape of the eye. I did one thing and was like, ‘Nope, not working for her eye’.”
Brown accentuated Justice’s eyes even more with individual false lashes before curling and swiping on Chanel Le Volume Mascara ($32). She also made sure to define and extend Justice’s arches with Votre Vu Arch de Triumphe Brow Definer ($24) for a more intense finish. “I darkened her brow from dark brown to black,” she says. “She didn’t want it to be totally washed out.” For the lips, Brown chose Chanel’s Rouge Coco Lip Colour ($36) in Julia, a soft nude.
