I can’t tell you how glad I am that the only make up technique I know (and can apply on myself) is now the biggest beauty trend of the season: the cat eye. To your surprise, it’s not as hard as the common opinion, especially with gel eyeliners or thick brushes. But since I have oily skin + eyelids, there is only one (yeah you read that right, only 1) eyeliner in the world that stays on my face all day: Dior Style liquid eyeliner, which to my luck – of course – is really liquid and comes with the thinnest paint brush. I can say that I pretty much mastered it over the years, however I can’t say that it’s the best option for beginners.
For my night time make up, I prefer MAC gel eyeliner applied with a seperate angled brush (to give it a more panda eye effect) and use a black eye shadow on top of it to soften the look into a smoky eye.
I personally never tried different styles of cat eye (under cat eye, cleopatra, neon colors etc) nor seen anyone in real life who tried them, but I totally encourage anybody who can pull the look off. Up for the challenge?
