Creating a Cat Eye in 3 Easy Steps

Makeup trends have always come and gone (hello and GOODBYE, blue eyeshadow), but the illustrious cat eye has stood the test of time. The trend dates all the way back to ancient Egypt, where Cleopatra was hailed as the creator of this dramatic look. Fast forward to the 40’s, and the cat eye became a beauty mainstay as a staple for pin-up girls and Hollywood actresses. From Bridgette Bardot to Amy Winehouse, women around the world have put their own unique spin on the cat eye. At RevitaLash® Cosmetics, we set out to create the perfect eyeliner to give you a bold yet wearable cat eye in a few quick and easy steps. Not only is our Defining Liner formula richly pigmented and perfect for creating multiple looks, it’s also infused with Vitamin E for powerful antioxidant benefits for the skin.

When creating a precise winged look, many women look to liquid liners to help them achieve their look. But the truth is, a gel liner is easier, more fool proof and even more customizable than liquid. Read on to find out how you can create the perfect cat eye in 3 easy steps!

Step 1: Line & Define

Starting at the inner corner of the eye, begin the draw a line as close to the lash line as possible. Using short strokes, continue lining until you get to the other corner of the eye. Layer as needed for desired thickness or darkness. 

Step 2: Shape Up

This is where the magic happens! Using an angled eyeliner brush at the base of the line you just drew, start at the inner corner and drag the line out towards the outer corner of the eye, using short strokes. Continue pulling product outward, creating the wings of your cat eye.

Step 3: Get Edgy

The key to a super sharp feline flick isn’t a steady hand - it’s actually all in the clean-up. To start, dip a pointed cotton swab or a flat concealer brush into a small amount of concealer (or makeup remover) to clean up any mistakes. Then, drag it along the bottom of the cat eye for an extra sharp edge.

 

Finish your look with the Double-Ended Volume Set and voila! Three quick and easy steps to a perfect, long-lasting cat eye.
