FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: My Cat Eye line Technique
Happy Friday everyone! I just came from a launch of a returning makeup line. Ahhhh! I'm not allowed to divulge it, but soon enough, you'll know about it on my blog. :D
Anyway, our Fan Mail Fridays question is from Rica, and she asked me about how I do my Cat Eye line.
Hi The Beauty Junkee!I love your blog, most especially your EOTD posts. Your eyeshadow looks are so wearable! One striking thing that I always notice in your eotd/fotd posts is your eyeliner. I like its perfect winged shape! Please tell me how you do it! Thank you so much!Rica
Hi there! Thank you for the nice compliment, and I'm glad to know you're enjoying my EOTD posts even though they all look alike lol! I'll cut to the chase, alright? :) Click READ MORE and see how I do my Cat Eye line!
For this tutorial, I have used a liquid eyeliner with a precise applicator. You can also achieve this look with a gel eyeliner. Regarding pencil eyeliners, you can use it as well but make sure that the tip is pointy.
STEP 1: Starting at the center of my lower lash line going outwards, I draw a thin line that serves as the base for the entire shape of the Cat Eye line. If you have semi- hooded lids like mine, it's best to wing the eyeliner just before you reach your outer lash line so when you open your eyes, the winged tip of the eyeliner will show. I wing the line at the area where the arch of my eyebrows fall-I've marked that area with a white line so you guys would have a better idea of what I'm talking about.
STEP 2: I connect the bottom tip of the line to the outer area of my upper lash line, and that leaves me with a hollow space right inside the eyeliner.
STEP 3: I fill in my inner lash line with eyeliner to seal the look.
STEP 4: Finally, I fill in the hollow part with eyeliner.
STEP 5: To recreate the same line precisely on the other side, I use a finger and feel the part where the eyeliner on the lined side has ended, and then I do Step 1-4 again. It's best to use two fingers on both eyes so you can create a more even look-I'm just using one finger here because my other hand is taking the photos. :D
OTHER TECHNIQUE: Connect the dots- Apply two adjacent dots on your lids-these will serve as markers for the ending point of your Cat Eye line. Line your eyes as usual.
It took me a while to perfect this technique--in fact, I still make mistakes even if I've been doing this technique since time immemorial. :p That said, practice makes perfect! Hope you liked this tutorial guys! :D
