Nail Erykah Badu’s Sultry Reverse Cat-Eye

By now, you’ve already seen the photos of Ms. Badu cuddled up with her new bae, Carl Jones. And, while we’re always down for a sister in love, the beauty girl in us just can’t get over the smoking hot reverse cat-eye she was sporting in the photo. She brought lived-in makeup to a whole new level!

Hold the skin taught and extend the tip outward and upwards to create a reverse feline flck. Smudge the liner with your ring or index finger to give it a lived-in look, and liner your upper lid with a fine-tip liquid liner like Tarte Rainforest of the Sea So Fine MicroLiner ($22, at Go over the winged kohl liner with the liquid liner and set with a setting powder to prevent smudging.
