10 Tools to Master the Cat Eye
Makeup fads will come and go (looking at you, ’90s Drew Barrymore), but there’s one thing that is a classic no matter what beauty era you’re channeling — the cat eye. Whether you’re going mod Audrey Hepburn or modest January Jones a la Mad Men, the cat eye should always have a place in your beauty arsenal. We’re arming you with the tools you’ll need to master the art of this sexy, timeless look.
What if you don’t line your lids at all? Stay with us here… the cat eye is about the shape, not the liner. Use a business card or even tape as a sort of stencil while you’re applying your shadow. When you pull it away, you’ll be left with a crafty cat eye. (via Beautylish)
6. Benefit Push-Up Liner ($24): This thing is kind of a huge deal in the world of eye liners. You simply turn the bottom of the pen (like twisting up lipstick) and after one click you have the perfect amount of liner for one eye. The pen is built perfectly for the shape of your hand and the angle of a cat eye for a great result every time.
7. Eyeshadow Primer ($12): What if you use the utmost concentration DIYing your way through the best cat eye you’ve ever done only to have it all smudge away before the night is over? With primer, your shadows and liners not only last longer, but they’re also more vibrant!
Who knew a spoon could do so much? You can use a spoon to get an ideal angle on your cat eye and make sure both eyes look the same! Not to mention it helps to keep your hand steady. (via Cosmopolitan)
