How to do a cat eye:

In order to know how to do a cat eye, make sure that you will prepare your lids first.

  • Make sure that your eyelids are clean before you apply the eyelid primer.
  • Decide if you would like to use an eye pencil or a liquid eyeliner.
  • Start drawing from the middle of your lid. Draw the line, whether thick or thin, as close to the lash line as you can.
  • You can then start moving towards the ends of your eyes. You can make the lines as thin or as thick as you want. Thin lines are more subtle and thick lines will make the effect more dramatic.
  • To give you better control of the lines that you are going to make, you can start with a thin line first and then make the line thicker depending on your preference.
  • From your outer lash line, start drawing a line going upward toward the tip of your brow. You can choose if you want to make the cat eye longer. You can also choose the angle that you think will work best for you.
  • After you have drawn the wing, you need to connect it to the upper lash line. You should create an empty triangle.
  • You can use an eye pencil in order to color the empty triangle. Make sure not to make any mistakes.
  • In order to improve the overall appearance of this look, you can curl your eyelashes and add 2 – 3 coats of mascara.
