We all love the all-time favourite cat eye liner perfected on the upper-lid of the eye, but it’s always fun to experiment with your look and therefore take a little inspiration from the catwalk models in fashion week and work those lower lashes girls. The models sported full on under eye makeup not only vibrant in colour but also completely mesmerising! Long gone are the days when we were taught to standby mascara usage solely for upper lashes; nowadays the trend has been broken and celebs are opposing beauty customs to add extra coats to the lower lashes. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Beyonce have been known to wear this look, and it is most certainly gaining momentum in the beauty industry. Even Gucci models have been seen to be wearing clumps of mascara on the lower lashes to emphasise the lower lash line.
It is a simple and effective way to gain a sultry and sexy look without making your eyes appear smaller. The beauty trend draws definitive attention towards the eyes, making them appear brighter and larger. There are several ways to achieve this hip look and it works differently for all of us.

To begin with you need to equip yourself with a fabulous bold liner which allows you work this trend to its full potential. Mac make-up has a wonderful liner for the job; the Pro Longwear Liner, which is available in five separate shades, is perfect.

If you want to gradually build on this look try out Night trail which has a softer grey tone, or rich experience which sways towards a dark brown shade. The eye liner is creamy and long-lasting so the pigment of the colour will glide on effortlessly and help assist the emphasis you wish to gain.
