A cat’s eyes are enchanting, aren’t they?
That slender shape and outline – there’s something about those feline eyes! The cat eye liner look has been quite a rage in the makeup world for a long time now. From Cleopatra to Bollywood actresses, cat eyes have been flaunted by all women who are the top of their fashion game. This look is here to stay, so it’s best to try and perfect it right now. It’s never too late to begin!
The basic cat eye method goes as follows:
Step 1: Prep The Eye
The first step is to create a good base for the cat eye. Make sure to thoroughly cleanse, tone and moisturize. If you have redness around the eyes, dark circles or puffiness, use an eye serum or an eye cream. These do wonders! To make sure that the makeup sits well, apply a primer.
Step 2: Start Lining
Using your eyeliner of your choice, draw a line along the edge of the card. “The line should start as a continuation of your last lash,going up and out toward the outer edge of your eyebrow,” says Leary.
STEP 3: Concentrate On Inner And Outer Corners
Go back and line the rest of your top lash line to your inner corner, staying as close to the lash line as possible. Do the same for your bottom lash line. Then make sure you fill in the area between the top line and bottom line at the outer corners with liner.
Step 4: Find Your Shape
