The cat eye is one of the most classic makeup looks around, but not the easiest to achieve. It takes some practice and a bit of a steady hand to get that line traced along your top lashline and then winged out at the outer corners. But once you get it, you’re golden.
Liquid liners work best because they’re easier to use than brushes and make a steadier line. For a smooth application try Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner, $30, sephora.com. Try Maybelline Line Works Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $6, amazon.com. It will give you a bold, thick line. If you just can’t get the steady line down, of course there’s an appliqué for that. Scoop up these eyeliner decals by the online shop Mily Makeup Boutique. Les Classiques de Mily are stickers that press along your upper lash and tah-dah, a perfect winged-out look! $30 for 12 pairs, milymakeupboutique.com
