5 Tips for a Perfect Cat Eye

Prepping Makes Perfect

Before you take pen to paper, so to speak, you need to get your tools out and your surface prepped. As far as tools go, here's what you'll need:

  • eye makeup primer
  • eyelash curler
  • eye shadow
  • eye shadow brushes
  • eyeliner
  • mascara
  • cotton swabs
  • eye make-up remover

The best eyeliner to use for this look is something soft. This is crucial so it glides easily across your eyelid. Liquid eyeliner is the best, because it's not only very easy to apply, it's also resistant to smudging once it dries. Another way to prevent smudging is to prep the surface with an eyelid primer. Many makeup brands sell eyelid primer, and it helps smooth the surface for applying makeup, and keeps your makeup in place longer. Once the surface is prepped, use the eyelash curler to give your lashes a little boost and flare.
