How I Copy Alexa Chung's Cat Eye (And More) [SLIDESHOW]
Posted 08/10/11 at 02:08PM by Charli Schuler
Aside from being a former model and Vogue's "most stylish woman in the world," Alexa has been called a "phenomenon" by Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, "the modern girl ... beautiful and clever" by designer Karl Lagerfeld, and even the "new" Kate Moss. Here, she's perhaps best known for her work with Madewell and a brief stint on MTV's "It's On with Alexa Chung," and soon, she'll be on your TV as the host of Lifetime's "24-Hour Catwalk."
All that other stuff aside, what fascinates me most about her is her signature makeup look -- a simple yet elegant one that borrows from the '60s and really plays up her beautiful blue almond-shaped eyes. After researching tons of eyeliners and Alexa Chung makeup tips, and practicing a cat eye for months, I've finally figured out how to recreate it. Whether you're an Alexa fan or not, this is definitely a go-to look if you need to appear effortlessly glam within minutes.
