The Classic Cat-Eye Gets A Summery Makeover

We adore a retro cat-eye (Kate Moss, you still got it), but we've pretty much run out of enthusiasm for its requisite heavy, black liner — it is almost summer, after all. So, we called in makeup artist Bethany Brill, hoping she could help us infuse some vibrancy into our favorite glam eye look.

As usual, she did not disappoint: By swapping out our black eyeliner for a summer-perfect teal, Bethany showed us how to go from standard to stunning in just a few swipes. We think this look is the best of both worlds, with its combo of fun and foxy. Watch and learn, then let us know what you think: Does this colorful cat-eye strike your fancy?
