So lately I have been really into a thick cat eye look. It’s fun, it’s retro and it’s more bang for your buck! (less work yet bigger effect). However, I understand that the cat eye can be intimidating to some people, and rightly so, it takes a bit of practice. But I have come up with a little tip that might help you give it a whirl!
I did a video a little bit back on a thick winged liner and Christie has a post on how she does her cat eye look as well. She also has a post how different liner shapes can change the shape of your eye. (oh and for baby Bennet updates, check out our Facebook page.)
Here’s what you need:
Oh and that eye liner is from my Birchbox, it’s amazing. It doesn’t smudge, it stays nicely all day, it’s easy to apply because of tip, it’s just great. You can find it here. And here’s my picture tutorial on how I get it done. Description is below.
Okay, so you start with a neutral shadow. You don’t want the shadow colors to take away from the liner. Then look straight in the mirror with your eyes open normally and make a dot with your liner on either side, in the same spot, where you want your liner to come up to (shown in the first picture). The line your eye and connect to the dot. It can be messy because after that you go over it again until you have the shape you want. If you are a bit messy or need some clean up, just use a pointed q-tip with makeup remover, lotion, or just plain saliva (yep, sometimes I just stick it in my mouth!) and wipe where you need to.
There you have it! Sounds easy, doesn’t it? Well, it is. And as a side note – this is perfect for our more mature audience. It kind of lifts your eyes up and out and helps with the affects of aging without any surgery! 🙂 There’s your tip for the day, you’re welcome!
I hope you give it a try, and if you don’t get it the first time around, no worries, try again! Sometimes it might take a few tries! Have a happy Tuesday!
