4 Steps to the Perfect Spring Cat Eye

As timeless as the cat eye is, we’re all for new variations on a tried and true theme. We’ve found a secret weapon for customizing the look — L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner. A sweep of liquid color behind the classic black cat eye enhances any color, shape and size eye by giving an extra pop of color and dimension. We’re teaming up with L’Oréal Paris to show you this simple yet powerful tutorial to bring your spring beauty look to a whole new level. Let’s get painting!

Infallible Paints Liner glides on smoothly and easily with a precise felt tip, so you can confidently style your eyes with total control. What’s more, the eyeliner comes in six high impact colors, each of which are bound to make your natural eye color pop. Our charming model Caysi opted for Intrepid Teal to bring out the turquoise hues in her vibrant green eyes.

We used three L’Oréal Paris products for this look: Infallible Paints Liner in Intrepid Teal, Silkissime™ by Infallible® in Highlighter and Infallible Paints Liner in Black.

How to Master the Stacked Cat Eye

We’re excited to try this playful cat eye look for tons of springtime occasions: outdoor dinner parties, festival days, even fun Fridays at the office. Get this precise look in four easy steps.

Step 1: Highlight. Apply Silkissime™ by Infallible® in Highlighter to your brow bones and the inside corners of your eyes, then tap over with your ring finger to blend.

Step 2: Create a teal flick. Using Infallible Paints Liner in Intrepid Teal, create a wide cat eye flick. Draw a line with the felt tip from the outer corner of your eye up towards the edge of your eyebrow. Then, from the top tip of this line, draw the line back towards the inner corner of your eye. Fill in the inner portion of the upper and lower line and into your lash line. Let dry for a minute or so.

Step 3: Add a thinner black layer. Now go over the base of your lash line and the lower portion of the teal flick using Infallible Paints Liner in Black. This will create that stacked effect.

Step 4: Clean up. For any major lines that end up out of place, grab a pointed cotton swab and a small amount of makeup remover. Gently stretch your eyelid with your finger, then swipe the cotton swab to clean up. After you’ve cleaned up these lines, curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara to complete the look!

How easy was that? The pen is in your hands – use this as inspiration to define and design your own custom eye looks for any occasion. Have fun and go big!
