It’s all about playing up your eyes this season — and the simplest way to do so is by recreating the classic eye cat look.

2. Brushed up brows

Eyebrows are a defining feature, but gone are the days when your brows had to be properly plucked with not a stray hair in sight. This year, the focus is going to be on big, natural brows. To give your brows a more tamed and uniform appearance, brush them upwards using a spoolie and some clear brow gel! Psst… you can also use clear lip gloss if you don’t have a brow gel on hand.
3. Graphic eyeliner

Since it’s all about bigger and bolder eye makeup looks this season, be prepared to see a surge in stunning graphic eyeliner looks everywhere. This is the easiest way to break out of your eyeliner rut and give your eye makeup a completely new spin. But that’s not all. Since this eyeliner trend has no rules, it is the perfect excuse to play around with colours, shapes and designs — the possibilities are endless!
