How to Make Cat Eyes With Eyeliner
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation Cat eyes offer you a dramatic, glamorous look that is both timeless and up-to-date in its appeal. You may smudge your eyeliner or make your cat eye uneven when you first start, but with practice, you will be able to perfect the technique. If you’re ready to experiment with a cat eye, there are two ways to go about it. You may use a makeup brush to form a simple outline for your cat eye, or you can use tape to assist you through the process.
- 1 Start at your lash line and work your way up to your crease with a neutral or light eyeshadow. Dip your brush into a neutral, nude, or light eyeshadow and sweep it across your lid, making your way from your lashline to the crease of your eyelid. When you use an eyeshadow to prime your lids, it will be easier to apply eyeliner smoothly afterwards. It will also provide something for the eyeliner to adhere to, ensuring that it remains in place and does not smudge or wipe off
- Because cat eyes are so striking, heavier eyeshadow hues may appear overdone when worn with a cat eye. Instead, consider picking a hue that is either the same as or slightly lighter than your skin tone. Use a powder eyeshadow instead of a cream one. The eyeliner will not adhere to it, and both the liner and the eyeshadow may easily come off
- 2 Begin by angling a brush from the bridge of your nose to the outer brow to determine your finish point. To create the line for your wing, place a thin makeup brush on the side of your nose and angle it till it points to the end of your brow—this is the line you want your wing to follow. You want your wings to be as similar as possible in terms of length, breadth, and angle
- Otherwise, they would appear asymmetrical.
- If your eyelids are hooded, reduce the angle upward and make it more horizontally straight rather than upward. This will make your lash line appear longer and wider, and it will also open up your eyes.
- Another alternative is to treat your wing as an extension of your bottom lash line, which is another variation. Flick your lower lash line in the direction of the angle, then extend past it to make the flick of your cat eye! This will assist you in achieving symmetry in both eyes. Advertisement
- s3 Mark the tip of your wing with eyeliner, right above your crease, using a dot of the product. In general, the higher you place your dot, the wider and more dramatic your cat eye will appear. Before continuing on, double-check that the dots are at the same angle and height on both sides of your face. In comparison to erasing a complete wing, moving a point on a dot is far easier.
- It’s okay if you’re not satisfied with the location of your dot
- Simply wipe it away with an old cotton swab soaked in eye makeup remover, primer, or moisturizer. Once you’ve done that, softly dab your foundation onto the clean region and try it again.
- 4 Draw a line from the dot to the outer corner of your eye, connecting them. Make sure not to tug on your flesh when sketching the wing! Instead, lean your head back a little and lower your eyes so that you can see your lash line more clearly.. Using this method, you will be able to see what you are doing while you make your cat eyes.
- It may be simpler to draw a line if you pull your skin taut, but as you release the skin, the wing may change shape and may appear sloppy.
- 5 Draw a line from the dot to the centre of your upper lash line, connecting the two points. Pull your eyeliner from the corner of your eye to the centre of your lid in a gentle, upward motion. Adjust the position of your line to the height you want your cat eye to be. Even if you have some eyeshadow peeking out below the line, it’s fine since you’ll fill up the gaps afterwards.
- If you have a round eye, you should experiment with a thicker wing and line. In order to make your eyes appear larger, you may want to make your lash line around 2-3 mm thick
- Alternatively, if you want to stretch your eye line and make your eyes appear larger, draw a curved line instead of a straight one. It is important to make sure that the line is curling downwards.
- 6 If required, fill in the gaps in the outline you’ve drawn. Because of the way your original lines were drawn, as well as how thick they were drawn, you might or might not need to fill in the outline after all. Fill up any spots where your eyeshadow is peeping through with your eyeliner to complete the look.
- In the event that you drew your top line exactly along the lash line, you may not need to use any filler. Fill in your cat eye with many coats of pencil eyeliner if you’re using a pencil eyeliner.
- 7 Use a pointed cotton swab to clean up any errors you may have made. It is easier to get into corners and tidy along lines with the pointed tip rather than accidently smearing the eyeliner. You may alternatively dab the cotton swab with primer or eye cream and use it to carefully remove any extra eyeliner
- However, this is not recommended.
- Makeup remover should be avoided. It is possible that it may perform the job too effectively and will remove any eyeshadow that you had applied previously.
- 8 Draw a line connecting the inner corner of your eye with the cat eye on your iris. Apply eyeliner to the corner of your eye and slowly draw the liner toward the cat eye. Continue to move your finger across your eye until you reach the outside corner of your lid. Your cat eye will appear more even at the top if you do this.
- Make every effort to do this in a single, flowing motion. Otherwise, the line may appear choppy and uneven
- Avoid pushing on your eyelids once more if possible. Instead, lean your head back slightly and lower your vision so that you can see your lash line more clearly. Tightliningyour eyelid, which involves getting the liner between your lashes and up against your waterline, may be difficult to do and may irritate your eye
- 9 As you approach closer to the outer corner of your eye, thicken the line as it grows thicker. While you’re doing this, try to keep your pinkie resting on your cheekbone. If you use it, it will help to steady your hand and make it simpler to draw a nice, straight line rather than a wobbly one.
- Alternatively, if you’re using a felt-tip liner, keep it closer to the centre of the tube for greater control.
- 10 Last but not least, apply mascara. To begin, apply one coat of mascara to the bottom lashes of your eyes. Then, using your mascara wand, make multiple sweeps across the top of your lashes
- Consider curling your lashes or using a pair of fake lashes for a gorgeous nighttime appearance.
- 1 Apply a neutral or light eyeshadow from your lash line all the way up to your crease, blending it in. To apply a neutral, nude, or light shade of eyeshadow across your whole lid, use an eyeshadow brush. The powder will level out your lids and make it easier for your eyeliner to glide on smoothly. Consider selecting a color that matches your skin tone or is a shade lighter than your skin tone instead of a deeper shade, which might seem overdone because of the dramatic nature of cat eyes.
- It is best not to use a cream-based eyeshadow. Because the eyeliner won’t adhere to that surface very well, it may slide straight off
- Keep concealer away from the under-eye area for the time being since the tape will remove it. Additionally, the tape may remove any makeup that has been applied in that region.
- 2 Take a small piece of transparent tape and apply it to the inside of your wrist. Stick it to your hand and pull it up numerous times to get rid of part of the adhesive residue on it. Because of this, the tape will be less sticky and will be kinder on the sensitive skin surrounding your eye
- In addition, tapping the tape on the back of your hand before putting it to your skin will reduce the likelihood of irritation while removing it from your skin.
- Alternative: Instead of using tape, you might use a sticky note as an alternative. If the sticky note is really sticky, you may wish to tap the sticky note on your hand before applying it. Some of the glue will be removed as a result of this. 3 Make a line with the tape along the outside corner of your eyeball. Place the tape slightly behind your lower lashes, with the tip of the tape angled towards your brow bone. Once you’ve done that, softly press it down with the pad of your finger to ensure that your eyeliner does not bleed under the tape.
- In order to get a more dramatic effect, direct the tape towards the end of your brow instead. A thicker line will develop as a result of this
- If your eyelids are hooded, put the tape at a less upward angle and more closely parallel to the horizontal line
- Using your index finger, draw a line from the inner corner of your eye to the outside corner. Application: Use your standard eyeliner technique to apply liquid, felt tip, or gel eyeliner, but make the line thicker as it moves towards the outer corner of your eye. Do not, however, extend your drawing beyond the corner or onto the tape just yet.
- Keep the outer corner of your eye free of any tugging if you are having problems applying eyeliner evenly. Instead, lean your head back a little and lower your sight to view your lash line more clearly.. If you like, you can put your pinkie finger on your cheek to keep your hand stable as you sketch. When applying cat eyes, it’s ideal to use a liquid, felt tip, or gel eyeliner to achieve the best results. Even if you just have a pencil eyeliner, you may get a similar look by layering it
- However, the outcome will not be as seamless.
- 5 After you have extended the line past the corner of your eye, use the tape as a guide to finish the job. Pull your eyeliner over your skin just above the tape in a slow, steady motion. As you near the end of the tape, taper the line to a point that is barely visible. Follow the tape line as smoothly as you can, and don’t be concerned if some eyeliner gets on the tape
- This is normal.
- You have complete control over how long or short the “flick” of your cat eye should be. The length of your cat eye will determine how dramatic it will be. To get started with a cat eye, it’s simplest to produce a very short flick by extending your eyeliner just past your eye and across your crease
- This will give you the most control.
- 6 Remove the tape with caution and apply any touch-ups that may be required if necessary. Grip the tape by the lower edge and carefully pull it away from your skin, being careful not to damage it. A clean, sharp line will be seen when you remove the tape off
- If any eyeshadow was removed by the tape, carefully patch it back up with additional eyeshadow. If you normally use an under-eye concealer, you can do it now
- Otherwise, wait until tomorrow. If you are using a pencil eyeliner, you may need to apply many layers of eyeliner to achieve the desired cat eye effect.
- 7Finish with mascara or artificial lashes if desired. Apply a couple coatings to your top lashes and a single coat to your lower lashes for a dramatic effect. In order to get a more glamorous evening appearance, curl or apply a pair of falsies on your lashes. Advertisement

Question To make sure that your eyeliner and wing are not too thick, what should I do is… Cecilia Flores is a model and actress. Answerer with the most points Instead of using a pencil, use a liquid liner or a gel (with a thin consistency, such as Tarte Amazonian Clay liner) applied with an angled brush instead. You want to start at the outside corner of your eye and flick your liner toward the tail of your brow in one swift, fluid motion (it needs to be fast otherwise the wing won’t be as crisp). This will produce the wing. Then, draw a thin line from your inner corner to the tip of the wing and fill in the area between the line and your lash line. Repeat this process on the other side.

- More retro-style will be achieved by making your wing thicker than usual. If you haven’t styled your hair yet, you might want to consider pinning it back. This will prevent any stray hairs from landing on your face. In the event that you have already styled your hair, you might want to try softly cutting it back instead. For the best results, experiment with the length and angle of the wing
- If you’re going to use a pencil liner, make sure it’s as sharp as you possibly can. Additionally, it is possible that you may need to layer it in order to achieve that black effect. If you have difficulty applying liquid eyeliner, felt-tip and gel eyeliners are excellent alternatives. The fact that felt tip eyeliners operate similarly to a pen or marker means that they are simple to use and provide a great deal of control. Gel eyeliners, on the other hand, are available in pencil form, making them simple to apply. If you’re having difficulties drawing a straight line, consider using a credit card or a business card to help you out. A spoon can be used to create a curved line

About This Article
Creating a classic cat eye begins by pushing the handle of a makeup brush against the bridge of your nose and angling it such that the end of your brow is in contact with the bridge of your nose. Utilize the image above as a guideline, and then draw a dot where you would like the tip of your cat eye wing to be located. Repeat on the other side of your face. Then, drawing a line from the dot to the outer corner of your eye will help you see better. That will be the bottom of your cat-eye shaped brows.
After you’ve finished filling in your cat eye, complete the appearance by painting a thin line from the inner corner of your eye to the wing of your eyebrow.

How to Apply a Cat Eye for Your Eye Shape
In the event that we were to write a book about classic makeup looks, it’s safe to assume that we would devote an entire chapter to mastering the ideal cat eye look. The cat-eye style isn’t for everyone, however how much we like it with a fiercewinged liner. When designing your eye form, it is critical to consider your facial features as well. Each individual’s method is the same as another’s, however variations in line thickness and length are possible. Continue reading for advice from celebrity makeup artistsElle Leary and Emily Oliver on how to apply a cat eye to your particular eye shape (such as hooded, upturned, downturned, monolid, and more).
- A extremely fine line might make the eyes look much smaller than they already are.
- “I’ll forego the pencil and instead use a liquid eye shadow,” she adds.
- Cat Eyes for Hooded Eyes, or vice versa The broader the line, the better, adds Oliver.
- To get this cat eye look, we recommend theMaybelline New York Eye Studio Hyper Easy Liquid Eyeliner and an angled brush from the brand.
- “I’ll get under the top lash line and into its waterline to give it a more balanced look,” explains the makeup artist.
- In addition, Leary advises against using eyeliner around the bottom lash line if you have hooded or narrow eyes since it tends to make the eyes appear smaller.
- Cat Eyes in Place of Almond Eyes If you want to enhance an almond shape and give the appearance of larger, longer eyes, Leary recommends keeping the line narrow along the first two-thirds of the eyelid.
” In order to properly enhance the cat-eye shape, Leary advises taking the liner all the way down to the bottom lash line for this design.
Cat Eyes for Upturned Eyes are a popular choice.
As a result, they are great for a cat eye.
Cat Eyes are used to correct downturned eyes.
According to Oliver, the key is to begin the line at a much higher point than you would anticipate.
Cat Eyes for People with Monolids You want to maintain the liner as near to the lash line as possible because this eye shape does not have a crease.
In addition, Leary thinks that it “actually helps to give the eye some definition, contour, and length.” To get a precise line, apply a liquid eyeliner over the pencil eyeliner that was used as a basis.
Keeping the liner thicker in the centre of the eye and shorter at the wing is recommended by Leary if you want your eyes to seem rounder and more doll-like. “This will give the illusion of a more curled eye,” explains the artist.
How To Do Cat Eye Makeup Perfectly? – Tutorial With Pictures
Isn’t it true that a cat’s eyes are mesmerizing? Somehow, those feline eyes stand out against the rest of the body’s thinness and contour. For quite some time now, the cat eye liner style has been fairly popular in the world of cosmetics and beauty. Cat eyes have been worn by all ladies who are at the top of their fashion game, from Cleopatra to Bollywood stars, and they will continue to be worn. This look is here to stay, therefore it’s essential to experiment with and master it as soon as possible.
Before we get started with the cat eye makeup lesson, here is a list of the supplies you will need.
What You Will Need
Before you begin applying your makeup, there are a few things you need take care of first. It is critical that you follow the procedures outlined below.
Step 1: Prep The Eye
Image courtesy of Shutterstock The very first step is to lay down a strong foundation for the cat eye. Make sure to completely wash, tone, and moisturize your skin before applying your makeup. Use an eye serum or an eye cream if you have redness or puffiness around your eyes, as well as dark circles or puffiness under your eyes. These are just amazing! Applying a primer can help to ensure that your makeup will stay in place.
Step 2: Pick An Eyeliner
Now that you’ve completed the foundation, it’s time to choose a product that will work well for you. You may either use a liquid liner that comes in a tiny vial container with a delicate brush applicator or a felt tip pen to create the look you want to achieve. Another option is to use a gel-based eyeliner that is packaged in a pot. This will need the use of an angled brush or an eyeliner brush for application. As an example, let us use a felt tip eyeliner for the purpose of simplicity. If you’re a newbie, you’ll find this to be convenient and simple to use.
Benefit’s Push Up Eyeliner is a great product.
Because it is tilted, the applicator is the most useful element.

The next step is to choose a product that will work for you after the foundation is complete. To apply liquid liner, either use a thin brush applicator or a felt tip pen that comes in a little vial bottle. Use a gel-based eyeliner that is available in a pot as an alternative. To do this, you’ll need an angled makeup brush or an eyeliner brush. Allow me to use a felt tip eyeliner for the sake of simplicity. If you’re a newbie, you’ll find this convenient and simple to use. They’re Real is a fantastic product that I highly recommend.
Essentially, it’s a gel eyeliner that comes in a pen shape.
Allow me to now get started with the tutorial without further ado.
Step 2: Find The Right Angle
This is really critical! Follow the natural curve of your eyes to get a sense of where you want your flick to land on your face.
Assume that your bottom lash line has been lengthened. When you generate a flick, this should be the angle at which you do it. To approximately map out the contour, you may use an angled brush and an eyeshadow to create a gradient effect.
Step 3: Create The Flick
Once you’ve determined out the angle, use your eyeliner to make a flick by making dotted motions with your brush. Making use of little dots will assist you in determining the ultimate form of the flick’s final shape. Make a connection between the dots you’ve drawn above your lashline, and then link the dots together and fill it in with color to complete the design.
Step 4: Clean Up
The form of your eyebrows may always be adjusted using a cotton swab or concealer in the event that they are crooked. Voila! One flawless cat eye, ready to take on the world! –
Play With Your Cat Eye!
Do you want to be a bit more daring? Make a broad line over the lashes to draw attention to them. Your eyes will appear larger if you have a rounder and thicker appearance. A thin line should be drawn around your eye if you want to extend the curve of your eye. Using a narrower cat eye will give the appearance of having longer eyes.
You may also experiment with the duration of the film, but don’t go overboard with it. If you want to keep things simple, you may only make a little flick with your finger. This is referred to as a kitten eye (haha, get it?). Making it a bit longer might help you get a more dramatic look when you desire something more dramatic. Avoid going to either extreme since it will seem out of place.
It’s also important to think about what type of form you’re searching for. Adding a straight, crisp flip to your hair can give you an edgy appearance. If you go for a curved flick, you will exude a really elegant presence.
Different Types of Cat Eye Makeup Looks
You can wear the basic cat eye all the time, but once you are comfortable with it, you may experiment with different looks with it. Take a look at some of the numerous options available to you:
1.Smokey Cat Eye:
Who doesn’t enjoy a good smoky beverage? They are consistently on the cutting edge of fashion. This is one of my favorite black liners, and it is one of my faves overall. What’s more, it’s quite simple to put together!
- The first step is to draw a cat eye shape with a pencil that can be smeared
- 2. Smudge it out and create a soft effect with the help of your smudger or brush, while maintaining the form of the flick. In step three, use the pencil liner to line the bottom of your lashes and smudge it in. In order to make the flick stand out more, apply concealer under it in Step 4. That’s all there is to it.
Add a little something more to make it stand out. Put on some makeup and go the extra mile for it.
- Step 1: Apply a little amount of eyeshadow and mix thoroughly
- Step 2: Draw the cat’s eye shape. It’s really as simple as that
3.Bright Semi Smokey:
This one is for you if you want to retain the cat eye black, but want to experiment with other colors on your eyes.
- The first step is to create the cat eye as you would usually
- Step 2: Choose a vibrant hue that is both exciting and eye-catching. Something vibrant in color, such as blue
- Step 3: Use it to create a smoky look along your bottom lashline. That’s all there is to it.
4.Glitter Cat Eye
Glitter may be applied beneath the eyes to make them stand out.
- Step 1: Draw a cat’s eye shape on the page. Step 2: Create a smoky appearance by applying brown eyeshadow towards the lower lashline to serve as a basis for the look. Step 3: Select a glitter liner to use. If you don’t have one, you may also use glitter pigment, which you can apply with a very fine brush if you don’t have one. To achieve a bright and dazzling effect, use the product under the eyelashes in Step 4.
These styles are really simple to make and a lot of fun to wear. Having learned everything there is to know about mastering the cat eye, have a look at these suggestions on how to further refine your technique.
Tips To Be Followed While Applying Cat Eye Makeup
- When generating the flick, avoid pulling on the skin around your browbone with your fingers. This is a definite no-no! Rather than looking up, look down so that your canvas (i.e., your skin) is smooth and easy to work on
- Otherwise, you will completely ruin the shape. Make the investment in a cosmetics mirror. The information will assist you in fine-tuning those little elements. While applying the eyeliner, try to utilize a vanity or a dressing table to keep your hands clean. This will make it easy to keep your body in a healthy position during the workout. You may rest your elbow on the table, which will help you to maintain a steady hand and produce a smoother result.
Because I really enjoy cat eyes and enhancing them with different hues, I look forward to the next time I can go all out with my makeup! After that, what exactly are you waiting for?

DIY the Perfect Cat Eye in 4 Easy Steps
If you search for “cat eye makeup tutorial” on YouTube, you will get a plethora of results. There is a valid explanation for this. The traditional, lash-elongating beauty statement is one of those time-honored cosmetic techniques that looks nice on everyone but is frustratingly tough to achieve despite the fact that it has been around for centuries. And yet, Adele, our November cover star, appears to have it all under control: no one can pull off a feline film quite like Adele does. However, after over two decades of backstage observation of some of the world’s top makeup artists execute feats of face embellishment from New York to Paris, I’ve learnt a very crucial lesson that I’d want to share with cat eye hopefuls: no one gets it perfectly on the first attempt (probably not even Adele).
It’s just that they’re more convenient to use.
It wasn’t until Balenciaga makeup artist Inge Grognard introduced me to Maybelline’s Eyestudio Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner that I realized liquid eyeliner were truly worth the extra money spent. In addition to being extremely easy to apply, it also lasts all day and is only $6!

2. Draw a Line in the Sand Pulling your top lid taut with your non-dominant hand is a good way to start. When applying eyeliner, it seems most natural to work in the same direction as you write, from left to right. To begin, start at the outside corner of your left eyelid and form an upturned flick and line all the way in to the inner corner, staying as near to the lash line as possible. Follow the same path as before, starting with the inner corner of your right eye and concluding with a flick on the outside corner.
Make the necessary adjustments for symmetry.

4. Use a concealer to make your face seem better. Following the completion of your lines, dab a little amount of concealer below to really make the form stand out. When it comes to concealer, there is no competition for Cle de Peau. Its traditional cream stick recipe is the greatest concealer on the market, and it’s definitely worth the expense for the classic cream stick formula.

Cat eye makeup tutorial: How to get the perfect winged liner for beginners

We don’t hold it against you: A cat eye (also known as a feline flick) is a time-honored cosmetic trick that is popular all over the world because of its ability to broaden, exaggerate, and highlight various eye shapes and sizes. As gorgeous and sultry as the traditional cat eye is, it can be downright scary for those of us who aren’t quite up to speed on the application of eyeliner and mascara.

According to her, this will help you to get the desired form while also making it simple to blend out any mistakes.
The Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner ($28/£22) is another product that Adeola enjoys using.
The best eyeliner shape for each eye shape
When applying liner, it’s important to take your anatomy into consideration, just as it is when determining which eyebrow forms best enhance your eyes. The appropriate form, color, and length are all important when it comes to enhancing your eye shape, according to Bryony. “Rather than having a clear vision of what you want, it’s far easier and more pleasing to work on improving what you now have.” Here’s how to work with your eye shape according to our experts:
- If you have round eyes, Bryony recommends using a thin line of liner starting in the centre of the eye and working your way out towards your flick. After the line and flick have been combined, draw a little thicker line on the outside corner of the eyes to help them appear broader and more feline.
- Hooded eyes: “If you have limited lid space or your eye makeup appears to evaporate when you open your eyes, don’t be scared to experiment with a winged liner,” Adeola advises. In addition, the definition at the lash line will aid in opening the eyes. What is her golden rule? Beginning with the wing and working your way up to the liner is the best approach. In the case of Almond eyes, Bryony recommends using a pencil or cream shadow to blend the outer corners of the eyes together, as shown in the photo. “This will be softer in appearance and have a smokey, smoldering edge to it.”
The dos and don’ts to creating cat eye makeup
- If you’re using a tiny mirror, Adeola suggests holding it just below the chin and looking down to ensure that your eyelid is relaxed so that the makeup can be applied evenly. Adeola advises against stretching the skin: “I frequently see individuals pulling their lids up to apply liner—not only is this not healthy for the skin, but it also means that when you release your lids, you get an uneven, shaky line,” she says. Don’t be afraid to experiment: “If you don’t like the look of a liner on top, try a pulled-out smokey cat eye on your lower lash line,” Bryony recommends. In the end, it’s all about having fun and doing things that make you feel amazing. In addition to using the point of your liner, Adeola recommends applying the liner in a step-by-step manner and pressing the liner into the lash line. Those unpleasant gaps and bumps will be avoided as a result of this.”
- Conceal using concealer: If you make a mistake, don’t be concerned
- Simply go for your favorite concealer and follow Bryony’s instructions. Following my eyeliner application, I like to take a cotton bud and dip it into a little concealer and use it to wipe up under the eye. You may also utilize this to assist you in getting a really clean, crisp edge to your flick.’
