How To Perfect The Captivating Cat Eye

The winged cat eye look is always a source of fierce beauty for me.  Nothing makes me feel more confident and beautiful than the perfect winged black liner.  It’s like the best frame for my eye shape and makes me feel very Adele-like!  That girl can rock a cat eye.

{Keeping the rest of my makeup palette simple with the black liner.}

Here are my most simple techniques for accomplishing this statement eye look:


1.  Make the eye area as tight as possible but using your fingers from your non-writing hand, to gently pull the skin near your temple toward the hairline before starting your liner. This keeps the bumpy squiggly lines from happening!!

2.  Start drawing your line from the outer corner of your eye (however far out and dramatic you want the line to end up) and draw inward towards the middle of the lashline.  Then remove the tip of your liner, and start at the inner tear duct area, and draw in to connect to the first line.

3.  While doing all of this, tilt your head slightly backwards so that your eyelid lowers automatically making it easier to draw your line.

4.  I always set my liner with a matte black matching eye shadow on top of the liquid liner to give it extra staying power.

Of course finish the whole look with two or more coats of black mascara AFTER you’ve drawn your line!
