Seductive cat eyes have continuously been a hot makeup theme. The smoky effect helps enhance the eyes and creates a sensual feline look.

Implications - Fashion and cosmetic aesthetics are oftentimes cyclical, and even something as retro as this particular trend can resurface decades later as strong as ever. No company wanting to be on the frontier of their target market's interests should find this particular fact surprising, but it does put the onus on them to stay on top of where those interests are going rather than trying to catch up to where they have been.
