The cat or winged eye can be retro and polished or modern and bad-ass depending on your technique--making it the perfect Christmas day or New Year's Eve beauty look--but either way, liquid liner is a must. It creates a smooth, glossy line like no other formula and though it can be tricky, with a little practice you can make it perfect. If you’re a novice, try these tips for making it a little easier:
1. Draw a line with pencil first, then go over it with your choice of liquid liner.
2. Gently pull the outer corner of your eye and hold it taut before going in with the liner.
