Cat Eye Master Class

You’ve seen all the stars sport this look. Different versions of it have been on every single runway this past year. Problem is, you can’t seem to get it right. Don’t worry, not all women are born with the steady hand of Mr. Miyagi. So here are a couple of tips  to get a perfect cat eye every time.

First of all, you have to know where to draw the line. I suggest either following the natural  curve of the bottom eyelid or taking your eyeliner (or angled brush) and using it as a ruler from the side of your nose to the tip of your eye. This should provide the perfect line for your cat eye. Now are you ready?

1. Use a light pencil first.

Using a light eyeliner to draw the cat eye flick makes it not only easier to draw, it prevents bleeding of liquid products. It’s also much less of a pain to remove if you miss the mark.

2. Use an angled brush

Follow the curve of your bottom eye and lightly pat the brush until you have the length and consistency of color you want. Using eyeshadow also makes the look a lot more soft.

3. And when all else fails: Use an old business card

This is foolproof. Use an old business card to draw both lines. This prevents bleeding, and gives you a clean and sharp line.

Now have fun experimenting with colors and lengths.
