Reverse Wing

Today I decided to do things a little differently - Whilst experimenting with some of my new products, I decided to extend my typical cat-eye flick up from the bottom lash line, rather than the usual method of extending it from the top.

I left the top lash line liner-free to create a dramatic contrast between the top and lower lash lines, and I chose to add super-long lashes to balance the look out a little. 

I added a light neutral shadow to the lid to keep the look looking very clean, and simply added a burgandy shadow to the crease to add depth and to also help bring out the colour of my eyes.

What do you think about this reversed appearance? Would you dare to wear your makeup with all of the focus boldly aimed at the bottom lash line, rather than on top?

  1. I've done something a bit similar with lower liner but rather than flick it up (which would look horrid on me), I just keep the line extended straight out. I do feel like it's a bit heavy for me sometimes but I like wearing it that way once in a while regardless.

    Love this whole look :D
