Winged eyeliner/cat-eye has been a beauty staple for decades, and up to date, has remained one of the most classic makeup looks. While many love it, it may not be easy to achieve the perfect look. At first, the liquid eyeliner can be intimidating as the results might be squiggly instead of gracefully flick. But with practice, one can become a pro!
Good winged eyeliner/cat-eye starts thin then gets thicker as it goes out. The shape of your face determines the thickness and length of the eyeliner, and thus, people should explore different angles until they get what works out for them.
5 steps to follow for a good cat-eye
Draw the outline of the wing. Start with a single line from the eyelid’s outer edge towards your eyebrow’s outer edge, while taking on the shape you would want your eye-liner to have.
Draw a triangle by joining the top of your first line to your lash line, approximately one-third way into your eye, depending on the shape.
Shade the triangle
Protrude a thin line of eyeliner across your lash line towards the inner edge of the eye and maintain it as close to the lash line as possible.
Finish with mascara.
Ensure that you do not pull your skin when doing this. Always start with your winged eyeliner so that you can re-touch upon any mistakes with eyeshadow and foundation.
