All you need to apply perfect cat's eye liner is a steady hand and the right tools. Like anything worth doing, it requires practice, but the result is a sophisticated classic make-up look that makes your eyes appear larger while giving them an elegant slanting shape. There's a reason this look has been consistently in style since the 1950's! You can use any kind of liner to create a cat's eye: a pencil, gel liner in a pot, or liquid liner with a brush or felt tip applicator. These directions will work with any kind of liner, but beginners may find that the easiest way to achieve a steady, crisp edged line is with a felt tip liquid liner.
Begin drawing your first line at the inner corner of your eye, keeping your eye half open. Try to keep your line as thin as possible at first, and as close to your upper lash line as possible. As you reach the top middle of your eye, gradually and smoothly widen and thicken your line. Continue this line until just before the outer corner of your eye. To find the ideal angle of your cat's eyes' extended point, look at the curve of your lower lash line. Beginning at the outer corner of your eye, draw a second line, which will continue the angle of your lower lash line, slanting upward and outward. The length of this line will depend on how dramatic you want the wing of your liner to be. Next, connect the second line to your first line and fill in the resulting triangle shape. Once you have drawn the cat's eye on both eyes, take a few steps back from the mirror and check to make sure the liner is even on both eyes.
