Hannah Tries out a cat eye

With this week’s release of Lauren Conrad’s adorable, and beyond enviable, engagement photos, I couldn’t help but be inspired to try one of LC’s (yes, she will always be LC to me no matter how far she’s journeyed from Laguna Beach) signature looks—the cat eye.

Now while Lauren may have borrowed her inspiration from the original cat eye queen herself, Cleopatra, I sought my muses from the Spring 2014 runway.  From Anna Sui to Dolce & Gabbana to Salvatore Ferragamo, the runway was covered with models winging it out.  So as Spring approaches (hopefully sooner rather than later, am I right east coast?), I decided it was time to grab my eyeliner and try it out myself.

I opted for Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen and followed THIS YOUTUBE TUTORIAL from LC herself and her makeup artist, AMY NADINE.

The ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen was easy to use and the color didn’t smear across my eyelid like with other liquid liners.  I followed Lauren’s guidance for a more conservative winged eye, but based on the results, I might just knock it up a notch the next time I’m feeling…well, catty.

Meow.
