Although the trend of reverse smokey eyes has officially made a grand entrance into the world of beauty, it looks like a wild new cousin of the reverse makeup trend is now in town. While cat eyeliner has become an ubiquitous beauty fad over the past several seasons, reverse cat eyes are now making an appearance on social media as well. Popularized by experimental beauty gurus who are eager for an edgy new look, the reverse cat eye focuses on eyeliner applied under the lower lash line. Rather than swiping your liquid liner on your top eyelids as you normally would, this look quite literally flips the trend on its head.

If you are wondering how to embrace the look, start off with flawless skin and neatly applied concealer and liquid foundation. Next, accentuate your eyes with dark eyeliner under the lower lids and plenty of volumizing mascara. Another option is to slightly smudge the cat eye for a sultry, kohl-like effect. If you prefer clean lines, you can also apply a sharp flick of black cat eyeliner at this point. Highlight your cheekbones with pale pink blush, and apply nude lip gloss for a finishing touch.
