Drawing the Wing
Draw a line from your lower lash line in such a way that it looks like a wing. This will act as the extended part of the line that you have drawn earlier on upper lash line. Join the wing and the line. Do the same for the other eye.
Alternatively, apply a sticky note or place a spoon at the outer corner of the eyes. Now draw your angle carefully. Be careful while doing the edge in order to get a perfect angle.
The Eyeshadow Trick
This is a very important trick to get that perfect cat eye look. All you need is your favorite eye shadow and an angular brush. Damp the brush a little and take the eye shadow. Apply it in the middle of the eyelid and then just smudge it towards the outer corners. Don’t forget to fill the corners. Try taupe eye shadow as this natural shade will give a nice dimension to the eyes. First apply this shadow and follow up with any darker shade for an even look.
Apply Liner before Drawing the Wing
While drawing the wing for cat style eye makeup, make sure it goes straight out from the lash line rather going upwards. So apply your liner and mascara before drawing the wing as it will give you a better canvas to draw a perfect wing.
