The cat eyeliner has been featured for years and is considered a classic look in the makeup industry. The 1960's silver screen actresses brought popularity to this look that it is still sought after today. The cat eye is known to add that extra bit of glamour to your application, but unfortunately, it is a look that is not so easy to recreate. Over the years, and many bottles of liquid eyeliner, makeup remover and cotton swabs, I have learned an easy way to apply cat eyeliner flawlessly. So for all you vintage girls living in this modern world, here is what you need to get started:
2. Neutral base eye shadow
3. Beige or brown eye shadow
4. Any flat liner brush (I use the MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush)
5. Any blending brush (I use the MAC 217 Blending Brush)
6. Liquid eyeliner (pencil, or gel will work great too)
7. Kohl eyeliner
8. Liquid foundation
Optional: False eyelashes
Step 3. Draw short dashes of eyeliner across your lid until you have completed a straight line. I like to start my line one third of the way out on my eyelid and have the thickness increase along the way. This is a preference and you can create your line from the inner corner all the way out to the outer corner if you prefer. Of course, the thicker this line, the more dramatic the cat eye will appear.
Step 4. Use the outer corner of your bottom lid as a guide to begin the lower part of the wing for the cat eye. Draw the line as long or as short as you prefer for the wing of your liner. I like to go about one fourth the way up my eyelid.
Your look is now complete!
