imageLooking for a great New Year’s Eve look?  Try out the smokey cat eye which has been making it’s rounds this season on the runway as well as the red carpet.

The sophisticated shape of the winged-out liner, paired with the sultriness of the the smokey shadow is a versatile look that can be worn in a variety of color palettes.

Here a a few of our favorites:

  1. Shades of Blue. January Jones stood out at the 2012 Emmys with a midnight blue eye paired with a pale pink lip. She also lined her lower waterline with a white pencil for an eye-opening effect.
  2. Rock and Roll. Taylor Swift changes up her look in a recent Cover Girl ad with a charcoal and shimmery white combo that is a little edgy without being overwhelming.
  3. Keep it Clean.  Smudge eyeliner along the top lid, but leave the lower lash line bare for a look that is closer to the cat eye than the smokey eye.
