We get why once you鈥檝e mastered the cat eye you鈥檇 want to stick with your practiced methods. The ultra feminine look is one of the hardest beauty techniques to perfect, and so once you get your liner to come to that ideal tip, whether it鈥檚 a quick flick or a sweeping wing, we get why you鈥檇 think you鈥檙e good. But that鈥檚 not counting for the inevitable: seeing your favorite celebs wearing a different, dreamy-as-ever cat eye, and needing to know how it looks on Y.O.U. That鈥檚 just the reaction we鈥檙e hoping for with this post, one that will ultimately help you come out of your cat eye comfort zone to try one of these brand-new looks on your face. So consider yourself warned: these stars will have you reaching for your liner.

1. Daytime Cat Eye: This wear-everywhere look is cat eye 101. Just the smallest of swipes can make any fresh-faced look instantly polished. The tiny wing has the same pick-me-up for hair: just like that, Alexa鈥檚 messy strands look perfectly placed, and Lauren Conrad鈥檚 beachy waves appear flawlesss.

2. Inky Cat Eye: If you鈥檙e looking to take the everyday cat eye to the next level, this inky version is it. With lids fully covered and the flick teased out just a bit further, it鈥檚 the perfect balance of daytime drama (especially with Ginnifer Goodwin鈥檚 colorful lip and bold chop) and nighttime elegance (paired with Olivia Wilde鈥檚 peachy smile and fancy updo).

3. Metallic Cat Eye: Set against the cat eye鈥檚 classic shape, metallic eye makeup looks decidedly fierce 鈥 definitely bookmark this twist for your holiday parties. Emma Stone鈥檚 glittering lower lash makes her otherwise traditional makeup look altogether glam, while Dakota Fanning鈥檚 silver liner sparkles against the stiff black flick to make a statement of its own.

4. Smokey Cat Eye: This is the cat eye at its sexiest 鈥 smoldering, sizzling and smokier than you鈥檝e ever seen it. And it takes expert blending and masterful refining to ace this look. Though we have to admit, Vanessa Hudgens and Dianna Agron make it seem well worth the trouble.

5. Graphic Cat Eye: These 鈥60s-inspired eyes are all about the wow factor, from Nicole Ritchie鈥檚 winged shadow effect to Evan Rachel Wood鈥檚 homage to Twiggy. Consider this your secret-weapon statement look.

6. Color Cat Eye: If you鈥檙e *still* not convinced to stray from your go-to cat eye, you can at least swap out the traditional black when you鈥檙e feeling frisky. As you can see on Emmy Rossum, a subtle switch from balck to navy (or even brown!) still has a major effect. Or you can sub a more vibrant color for just the lower lash hue to punch it up Demi Lovato-style.

7. Winged Cat Eye: There鈥檚 no such thing as a too-bold cat eye 鈥 Rachel Bilson and Nicki Minaj prove that with their extra long wings. Thicker liner from crease to brow makes the look a serious statement 鈥 wear this sweeping version somewhere fun, like on a night out with the girls.

8. Glamorous Cat Eye: Take one look at Dita Von Teese and Angelia Jolie, and you鈥檒l get why the cat eye is considered such a classic. No nod to decades past, no harsh geometry, just a strong, painted-on tip that reflects those gorgeously feathered lashes. When it comes to glamorous makeup, you just can鈥檛 beat this look.
