“Expert advice on how to achieve the perfect cat-eye eyeliner”

The perfect cat-eye eyeliner might be difficult to achieve, but with a little guidance from a pro and some practice, you can master this famous makeup style. The cat-eye, also known as winged eyeliner, is a timeless style that adds drama and allure to any eye shape. Here are some professional pointers to get the perfect cat-eye every time:

1. Begin with a steady hand: A steady hand is essential to a perfect cat-eye. To reduce trembling and give yourself greater control, rest your elbow on a firm surface.

2. Sketch out the shape: Before using eyeliner, picture the shape you want for your cat-eye. Think of your lower lash line as extending all the way to the end of your brow. Put a tiny dot as a guide in the outer corner of your eye.

3. Draw a thin line along the lash line: Start by drawing a small line along the upper lash line, moving from the inside corner to the outside corner and progressively thickening the line as you go.

4. Create the wing: Using the dot as a reference, draw a diagonal line that extends upwards from the outer corner of your eye.

5. Connect the wing: After positioning the wing, carefully draw a line connecting it to the upper lash line to form a triangle. Make sure there are no gaps or lumps.

6. Fill in any gaps: Look for any places that require touch-up work and correct any slanted or missing lines. To achieve a perfect application, make short, controlled strokes.

Remember, practice makes perfect. Don't get discouraged if your first attempts aren't flawless.
