Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! While some of us will be doing the romance thing with our significant others (and we have just the glam dresses and accessories for you to wear in our Valentine's Date Night sale), many are heading out with their very best lady friends for a night on the town. No matter your V-Day plans, a classic cat-eye is always the thing. Hope, an ideeli makeup artist, has compiled a step-by-step tutorial to get a cat-eye even Audrey would be proud of.
1. First, start with liquid liner or gel liner. Using an angled brush, start from the inner eye & begin to draw a thin line gradually along the lash line.
2. Once you begin to get to the outer edge of the lash line, draw an upward wing, extending the line upwards toward your temple.
3. Work your way to the outer edge of your eye to create the wing tip, gradually increasing the line to get a little thicker at the outer edges. This will help to create a more dramatic look.
4. If your cat-eye looks a little messy, have no fear! Simply take a pointy Q-tip and a little makeup remover and brush over the edge of the cat-eye to make your point more precise.
New to cat-eye? Skip the liquid liner and opt for a gel liner with an angle brush. This gives you more control and creates less of a mess.
Ready to be daring? Try a soft colored shadow like a champagne or rose gold and pair with a bold lip! Or opt for a stand-out shade like gold or purple - just be sure to keep the rest of your makeup very soft.
