Yes, the cat-eye is our go-to everyday liner look and is an inseparable part of our overall aesthetic...until now. We recently came across this viral eyeliner hack that is oh-so-pretty and gives you the dreamiest eye look ever. Plus, it flatters hooded eyes too. Enter: puppy eyeliner. A K-beauty trend that's fast-emerging as one of the most coveted eye makeup looks to recreate. Scroll down for everything you need to know about this viral trend, including how to recreate it.
What is the puppy eyeliner trend all about?

Well, for starters, it's pretty much the opposite of the razor-sharp cat-eye trend. While your cat-eye wing flicks up at the tail, this one is a bottom-heavy look, and it curves downwards to lend a round-er, more youthful appearance to your eyes. This one's perfect for hooded, deep-set, and almond-shaped eyes. It brightens up the eyes and makes them look bigger. Win-win!

If you've always struggled with winged eyeliner, this one's much easier to replicate. It follows the natural shape of your eyes. It curves downwards, and the focus of the liner is on the lower lash-line. As opposed to a cat-eye, which plays into a sultry, feminine look, this one makes for a subtle, doe-eyed look instead.
Start by coating your lashes with a few layers of the Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara. This clump-free, water-resistant mascara stays on the lashes for more than eight hours without smudging. Don’t worry about damaging your lashes because the product is formulated with lash-loving ingredients like calendula extract and castor oil that nourish them.
Sweep your eyeliner along the upper lash-line from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. Once you have reached the outer corner, follow the natural shape of your eyes, and slick the eyeliner downwards instead of upwards. Define your waterline with a little bit of the smude-free, waterproof Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Deep Black. Now, with your eyeliner, fill in the outer corner of the eye with the corner of the lower lash-line, and merge the two to recreate the puppy eyeliner line. And blend the eyeliner for a seamless finish. And that's all that there is to this much-coveted K-beauty trend.
