the Undercat

Last weekend we went to the Treasure Island Music Festival. It was rad to see so many great bands in one day, and a lot of the performances have really stuck with me into the week. The music was great, (and of course the main point), but I also can't stop thinking about Zooey Deschanel's makeup. I know some people think it's kind of annoying how she's professionally adorable for a living, and I'm not a squealing fan-girl or anything, but I was really taken with her twist on the traditional cat eye.

It's like a converse, under eye cat swoop. I tend to like things that are quirky and interesting looking, even if they're not the most flattering (a concept I think of as fashion akrasia), but I think this look is great because it's a little weird but still pretty. That said, it did remind of this bolder, weirder cat eye from the Rachel Comey Spring 2011 runway show.

We're getting a little more Cleopatra over here.
Which can be a slippery slope.
