The sex kitten allure of Brigitte Bardot extends far beyond her hair. The screen siren had large, expressive eyes and wore eyeliner so iconically that the term “cat eye” has become synonymous with the French actress.
In a retro move that never seems to grow old, beauty makers are all over the eye trend this winter. So many new liners have launched this fall that you are sure to find the perfect one for that cat sweep, smoky look, or subtle line. Here are a few must trys that top our list.
This Mont-Blanc style liquid eyeliner will give you all the control you need to apply a thick straight line, a cat eye, or whatever you imagination conjures up. Inspired by a classic calligraphy pen, this waterproof liquid liner shines like patent leather and is pretty much smudge proof throughout the day.

This deeply-pigmented gel is high-impact, and while it is definitely not metallic, it is more shimmer than glitter. It’s versatile enough to go over the eyelids, and can be used as a liner. Paint a sleek line with an angled brush for a modern take on the classic Bardot cat eye.

The Noir by Antonym eye pencil is Ecocert-certified and delivers a beautiful line for a waterproof pencil. It also has a built-in sharpener for on-the-go touch ups. I loved how smoothly it went on the eyes, and how it refused to budge even after several hours of wear. Since it’s a pencil, it also helps perfect smokey eye.
