The Best Cat Eye Makeup Tutorial Ever — from a Cat
Listen up, humans — I’m Figaro the cat, AKA Wiggy, Figgy, Baby, Kitty Kitty, Mama’s Sweet Boyeeeeeeeeeeeeee, but you can just stick with Figgy. I’ve seen your attempts at crushing a traditional cat eye our cat eye hack, but it’s time you put down all your gimmicks and listen to good ol’ Fig here — you’ve been doing this all wrong! I’ve been prancing around for the last three years, and it’s finally time to step up and show you the real deal on how you should actually be doing your cat eye.
Welcome to Figgy’s Beauty Bar
The way I see it, why waste time and steps dealing with brushes and pods of liner, sticks or whatever?! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Just grab a pen that already has the pointed tip built in, like this Maybelline Master Precise Pen Eyeliner ($6).
Step 1: Choose the Right Tool
I’m constantly seeing all these “build the wing first” tutorials, and they’re wrong, to be frank. Line above the upper part of your eye first to establish the thickness and shape you want.
Step 2: Don’t Start With the Wing
Once your baseline is established, now you can go ahead and extend the line beyond the outside of your eyes to create that bad a$$ cat eye!
Step 2: Wing It Out
She likes it!
Because I don’t do lipstick!
