Who doesn't love a great cat eye? It's definitely a look that can be adjusted to look appropriate for work in the day and also for night time frolics. But is there a thing as too much? Nah…. Makeup is for personal expression. My personal makeup look is usually pretty tamed for a makeup artist so I keep my cat eye moderate and simple. However, there are many options for when you wanna keep it girly and simple for work or to bring in the drama for happy hour. Let's go over a few steps, pics and videos that will help you find your personalized feline eye.
First, let's think about eye shape. The beautiful thing is that your eye shape already gives you a great foundation to build up to your personalized style. As you'll notice in my pictures below, I have deep set almond eyes so I prefer to always make my eyes appear larger. To achieve this, I build a thicker line starting from the middle of my eye, that tapers towards the outer end, and is extended upwards on the corners of my eye.
When applying my liner, I usually prefer using a pencil for a quick line and ease or gel liner with a slanted brush when I want to create a more dramatic look. Here are some great products and tools to use.
One way to achieve an awesome winged line is to use tape as a partial stencil to get a perfect line. Here's a great reference video on this cute beauty trick.
