The reverse cat eye has been on our beauty radar ever since we spied it on the AW14 catwalks. Models at Thakoon and Nicholas K were seen sporting this modern, edgy twist on the classic cat eye- a heavier, lower-lash swoop that was topped off with pared-back, milky skin and neutral lips. Defined by a rounded-down shape and meant to highlight the inner corner of the eye, we’re totally loving this minimalistic, geometric look. So, when we spied Emma Stone rocking the look yesterday we were totally smitten- and love how Emma has made this catwalk trend totally wearable. This is some serious spring beauty inspiration.

Feel a little daunted by the idea of wearing your eyeliner upside down? Fear not. This look is actually surprisingly versatile and can be adapted to both day and evening make-up. Take, for example, Emma’s pretty daytime version. By keeping her line thin and clean and in a pale brown shade, the result is a super-fresh look that will work with blue and brown eyes alike. However, if you want to up the ante for the evening, take inspiration from the models at Nicholas K where a heavy black line on the lower lids as well as plenty of false lashes on the lower lash lines caused quite the beauty stir. Combined with a nude lip, this is a super-modern take on grungy punk beauty. The choice is yours! Take inspiration from Keira Knightley in the latest Chanel campaign, too- this is another gorgeous evening reverse cat-eye look.
