How To Do The Perfect Cat Eye

The cat eye is the ultimate classic makeup trend, but creating the perfect cat eye might be tricky and can take a long time to perfect it. We say that with the right tool—and technique, creating a cat-eye is actually easy. Learn how to do the perfect cat eyes like a pro.

First things first, apply nude eye shadow all over your lids. This will act like a base.

The magic trick here is to use a scotch tape. Take an inch-long piece of Scotch tape and press it to your hand to make it not that sticky.


The next thing you need to do is to place the tape underneath your bottom lashes at the outer corner of your eye. Apply the tape angled towards your temple.


Choose your favorite eyeliner. You can use liquid, pen eyeliner, gel eyeliner and even black eye shadow with an angled brush. Begin in the middle of your upper lash line, which is where the liquid line should begin to thicken. Draw a stripe to the outer corner of your eye using short strokes.


Using the tape like a ruler, continue drawing your line along the tape past the outer corner. Don’t worry if you liner bleeds onto the tape—this will all be removed!


After applying, wait a couple of seconds and then remove the tape.


And Voila! You have successfully created the perfect cat eye!
