Doing this experiment made me realize that cat-eye has been my makeup crutch. Forcing myself outside of my comfort zone taught me that I can pull off diverse styles. But most importantly, I don’t need a cat-eye to feel fierce. I am still rocking my wings (in moderation) but I’ve also discovered a new love for the bright-eyed, mascara-only look and often bounce between that and the cat-eye. I also feel confident enough to occasionally throw on a bold lip or even go makeup free!
