Did you see Kate Hudson’s wickedly cool eyeliner at the Golden Globes? The always glamorous star took one of the season’s biggest trends—the dramatic cat eye—and flipped it, filling the inside edges of her eyes with a thin, downward sweeping black line. The key adjective to remember if you’re planning to duplicate this look for yourself is…thin. Traditionally, actresses like Angelina Jolie and Eva Mendes have used a thick, smoky eyeliner when sporting this look. But when concentrating all that drama inwards—as opposed to the outside of your face—it’s best to use a thin (there, I said it again), refined line.
Step 1: Use Motives Liquid Eyeliner starting at the lowest point of your inner eye very gently—but steadily—line the inside of your upper eyelid staying as close to the eyelash line as possible. When you reach the far corner, stop.
Step 2: Make sure to start at the exact spot you began lining your upper eyelid, then make a dramatic quarter of a circle arch from that point to the inside of your lower lid. Continue lining along the inside of your lower eyelid, closest to your lashes, until you reach the outside corner.

Step 3: Finish with Motives Lustrafy Mascara, focusing the lashes towards the outside of your eye. Your lashes shouldn’t compete with your eyeliner at all!
Lots of love,
