Copy Alexa Chung's Glamorous Cat Eye In 3 Simple Steps!

TV host Alexa Chung is known as a fashion icon, but did you ever really look at her pretty eyes?

The British beauty loves wearing a black cat eye, and it's become her signature look:

“Liquid liner is my savior,” Alexa said. “Other people like other things to feel like they look normal, but for me, I’m pretty much naked without my eyeliner on. It’s my comfort blanket.” WWD

We feel the same way, Alexa. We don't go too many places without our liner on, too.

Alexa has debuted her own cosmetics collaboration with British brand Eyeko, and developed a super black felt tip-like liner that's so easy to apply.

A cat eye features a lined eye that ends in a pretty upward flick at the outer eye. It is a very flattering makeup trick when done properly.

Alexa explains it in 3 simple steps:
1. First I apply a makeup base like concealer on my eyelid and under my eye.
2. Next I sweep neutral shadow (slightly brown) as a wash over the lid.
3. Finally black liner. I'll do a flick from the outer corner of my eye upward, then I draw across the lid last.

Alexa Chung x Eyeko will be available Nov. 14 exclusively at and in Sephora stores come January. We think this is a great beauty investment.
