Here's where the cotton swabs and eye makeup remover come in. These mistake erasers will be part of the process. Perfecting this look takes practice. Add in the fact that liquid liner is prone to slippage and mistakes, and you could have a makeup applying meltdown on your hands. But before you panic, remember that patience is the secret to accomplishing this look. Make small, steady strokes and keep your mistake erasers close by, and you'll perfect this look in no time.
Use your liquid eyeliner to draw a thin line just above your upper lash line. When this is just how you like it, make a dot with your eyeliner where you want your cat eye wing to end. Start at the dot and work backwards to the corner of your eye, increasing pressure as you go so the line becomes thicker. InStyle magazine suggests using a credit card as a guide. Hold it at a 45-degree angle next to your nose, and use this as a guide for your cat flick. Repeat on the other side for flawless symmetry every time.
