The cat-eye has been replaced: it's all about the Julia Fox eye makeup trend now—at least for those who are willing to venture over to the dark side. 

At the beginning of 2022, we all wondered "Who is Julia Fox?" The actress and Kanye West's short-lived fling caught everyone's attention, particularly thanks to her bold makeup choices. Part Black Swan, part Marilyn Manson, her dramatic winged eyeliner immediately began trending after her Paris Fashion Week premiere. 

Could such an intense style find its way into the mainstream? Well, it looks like Fox is attempting to make it happen. Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on the eye tutorial blowing up social feeds. (Anyone else feeling nostalgic for their high school goth days?)

The Julia Fox eye makeup tutorial:

Though Hailey Beiber's green eyeliner and Rihanna's red eyeliner have also caught our attention as of late, we can't quite compare those looks to the Julia Fox eye. Those beauty looks simply don't have the same gusto. 

It only made sense for the mastermind behind the unique look to show her followers how it's done. In a 16-minute long video, Fox delivers the eyeliner hacks it takes to achieve the moody aesthetic. (Word of advice? Snag some heavy-duty soap and makeup wipes for clean-up!) 

With a short-and-sweet intro and a quick serum application—our beauty editors will guide you towards the best retinol serums—Fox begins. 

Shortly after the five-minute mark, the actress dives into the nitty-gritty deets. She first starts by suggesting those who attempt the eye look follow the shape of their own brow, so be mindful before getting creative. 

Using the darkest shade in one of the best eyeshadow palettes (Subversive + IntensifEYES™ Duo by Pat McGrath), the Uncut Gems actor begins to shape the winged look before tracing her eyelids with the black hue. To get a defined look, she whips out the pencil and traces the shape with even more black.

Do note you're likely to have a few hiccups along the way. It's a process, but with a little patience, you too can master the Julia Fox eye.

Whether you want to give this look the everyday treatment or save it for a special occasion, we wish you luck on the journey!
