Mastering the cat eye can be a tricky task. When it comes to finding the right angle and that perfect flick, practice makes perfect, and there are products and tools that can help. Click through to learn about eight must-haves that can purrfect your classic makeup look.
MAC Rollerwheel Liquid Liner ($21): Consider this your “training wheels” for liquid eyeliner — it even has a tiny rolling wheel. To use, glide it over your lash line, and flick it out for the fastest, most fool-proof look ever.
Beautyblender liner.designer ($16): Think of this as a stencil for all your lining needs. Each of the three rubbery sides has a different curve you trace to achieve a slew of styles — including a cat eye.
NYX Professional Makeup The Curve Liner ($15): The ergonomic shape helps cut down on makeup mistakes, while the rubbery “grip zone” lets you hold onto it with zero slippage.
Beth Bender Beauty Winged Eyeliner Stencil ($14): Close one eye and place this nifty tool on top of your lid. Then, draw along the edge where it says “top liner.” You’ll be rocking a crisp, clean line of pigment in seconds.
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push-Up Liner ($24): This inky, waterproof gel formula applies effortlessly, leaving behind a sharp trail of dark definition. Tilt the tip upward when you reach the outer corner of your eye for a can't-eff-it-up wing.
Vamp Stamp VAVAVOOM ($25): Not a fan of free-handing? Then you’re in need of a stamping tool. Simply dip it into your favorite cushion or liquid liner, place it on the outside corner of your eye, and let it do the work for you.
Burberry Cat Eye Liner and Shaping Shadow ($38): The waterproof liquid liner pen was inspired by a calligraphy brush, and the opposing shadow can be used to tie your look together.
Lancôme GRANDIÔSE Bendable Liquid Eyeliner ($32): This budge-proof eyeliner is all about versatility. You can use the wand straight or opt to bend it 35 degrees for a better application angle — but both positions will give you a stable hold.
