How to create a cat eye look

Your rating: None
A cat eye is a classic look that can easily be worn in the day or dramatised to be worn at night or to that special occasion. It can be paired with nude or bright lips to make a statement.
What you'll need: 
Angled Brush
Black eyeshadow/Gel liner
Black kohl eyeliner
Line your lid as close to the lashes as possible by dipping the angled brush into the gel liner. If you are using eyeshadow you can also wet the brush. An alternative is to use liquid liner, however using an angled brush can provide more of a crisp finish. If you want more of a dramatic look make sure the line gets thicker towards the outer corner of the eye.
Once you have lined your lids, from the corner of your eye extend the line in a diagonal motion until it reaches your crease. If you want a more dramatic look extend the line.
Make a line from the edge of the eyeliner back towards your eye to create a triangle.
Fill in the triangle. Make sure the line blends seamlessly.
Tightline your eyes, this means lining your upper lid using the kohl eyeliner.
