5 Products to Make Getting a Cat Eye Easier
Ah, the mystical cat eye. It might be one of the most sought after looks in the beauty world. Unfortunately, it's one of the most troublesome, as well. One slip of the wrist and your perfect feline flick can instantly go from sleek to sloppy. But don't let your battle with liner linger lest find yourself ruing the day Lauren Conrad first staked a claim on the trend (curses, Laguna Beach!). There are several products available to help the cat-eye-challenged. Take a peek at some of our top finds!
Beautyblender liner.designer: This nifty kit comes complete with a lightweight rubber-y liner guide (it resembles a guitar pick!) to help you master everything from a sharp winged look to a straighter, mod line. Plus, the rubber design makes cleanup easy, because let's be real, sometimes your liner goes places other than your eye. Store the guide in the compact mirrored case that comes with a suction cup to adhere to any surface.
Beth Bender Beauty Winged Eyeliner Stencil/Cat Eye Makeup Stencil: For those looking for a true fool-proof option, this stencil kit might be your saving grace. With a sharp edge on top and a perfect cat eye cut out, you can mimic whatever look you crave. Simply place over your eye and follow the guide. Yep, it's that easy.
Lancôme Grandiose Bendable Liquid Liner: At first glance, this might seem like your standard liquid liner. But, with a simple bend of the wand, this liner angles to become the perfect cat eye creator. The felt tip has better contact with the lash line, ensuring your cat eye is less awkward and more awesome. Tip: Angle the wand downward to line the lid, but flip it up to get the ideal upward flick!
Makeup Academy Professional Makeup Correcting Pen: Sometimes the easiest way to a cat eye is actually by removing some makeup. This handy pen is designed to erase makeup mistakes, from lipstick smudges and eyeshadow fallout to liner mishaps. It also makes for a great way to take a heavy-handed liner look and refine it. We like to apply our liner as normal (don't even attempt a flick) and then erase the line in an upward fashion to "reverse" create a cat eye.
e.l.f. Mascara & Shadow Shield: Although it's designed for mascara and shadow fallout, there's a tiny curved lip on this handheld tool that's perfect for guiding your liner. Place the guard underneath the lower lash line (smaller side toward your inner eye) and simply follow the edge outward with your eye crayon or liquid liner to get a straight, even line. Tip: Glide your liner slow and steady for a smoother flick.
