Cat-eye: still going strong!

With the flick of the wrist, the cat’s eye always brings talent to drama. And this season is also the case, the designer conveys the vixen atmosphere in varying degrees of drama. For eye makeup at night, the beauty camp is usually divided into two parts. Those who prefer diffuse dark shadows (also known as sultry eyes) and those who insist on winged graphic shapes. Recently, the most glamorous beauty appearance is a clever combination of the two. And the smoky cat-eye shows that you are a predator, not prey.

Cat eye still going strong

Since the time of Cleopatra, the cat’s eye has been mysterious, dramatic, and ultra-feminine. And few mortals have access to the beautiful golden lighthouse. Precise symmetry, perfect precision, uninterrupted lines, and equal thickness of the eyes proved to be a challenge, especially if you lack a stable hand. Although this may be difficult to master, it is worth practicing because the cat fanaticism will not disappear anytime soon.

The right eyeliner makes a world of difference.

Cat eye still going strong. It’s tougher than usual to draw a smooth line if your eyeliner is tugging at the skin as you go. If that’s the case, your eyeliner could be dried out from age or you might need to invest in a smoother formula.

If you’re on the more experienced side and like using an eyeliner pen. you can’t go wrong with Lashes Amor’s All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. And we also recommend this eyeliner if you’re on a tight budget. 

Your eye shape should determine your eyeliner shape.

Everyone’s eyelids have different sizes and shapes and that plays a huge part in determining the size and shape of your eyeliner wing.

Make yourself an outline.

One of the most common cat-eye mistakes is “curly cats.” when the eyeliner wing curls upwards instead of jutting straight out. It will change the shape of your eye. A great way to avoid those curly cats is to map out your cat’s eye beforehand. And makeup artists have come up with all sorts of ways to do this.

My approach takes some of the guesswork out of choosing the right liner shape for your eyes. After curling your lashes, I recommend visualizing an imaginary line that stretches outward from the outer corner of your eye to the outer brow bone. It should follow the same angle as your outermost eyelash. Place a dot right behind that outer eyelash. This will be the end of the tail. It should lift the eye shape and, most importantly, widen and elongate.

Resist the urge to close or stretch your eyes

A lot of people use their fingers to stretch out their eyelids when applying an eyeliner wing. It might just be a reflex, but it can singlehandedly ruin a cat-eye.

Painting an eyeliner wing when your eye is completely closed can cause similar problems. Because the shape of the eye can change as it opens and closes. This especially goes for hooded eyes and people with mature skin. Which is why I always recommend applying eyeliner while the eye is open.

Makeup remover can always help you.

Even professionals can use makeup remover at any time to perfect or correct cat eyes. My makeup artist said: “To make it more brittle, I used ultra-thin cotton swabs and some micellar water to sharpen the lines, then added a little concealer and blended them together to form sharp wings.” “Concealer is like Painter’s tape. It makes the edges clear.”

Cat eye still going strong. So if you don’t like the shape of your wing or got bumped along the way. Don’t feel bad about not getting it perfect on the first try. You can clean up small imperfections with concealer and micellar water. Worst-case scenario, you just try again. Either way, you’ll get better the more you practice.
