OH SO SIMPLE

You love the way black liquid liner, winged out, elongates and changes the shape of your eye. Here’s a way that you can keep the shape, but quickly soften it for daytime or a more delicate look.

TOOLS:

  • Black liquid liner — I used Covergirl Line Exact because it’s one of my favorites (and is affordable too).
  • Any shimmer shade that you feel in the mood for that day — I’m in love with this Aerin Holiday Palette that I spoiled myself with over the holiday¬†and I swap between the two shades on the bottom row, depending on how soft I want the line to become.

STEPS:

  1. Incrementally trace the liquid liner across the lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner. Then continue the line out and up to draw a wing. Revisit our Get Catty Video Tutorial for the easiest way to draw a cat eye.
  2. Sweep the shimmer shadow back over the line. I love the little sponge applicators that come with shadow palettes but a thin brush works too.
