When you're trying to execute the perfect beauty look, the right eyeliner is crucial—and how you use it is just as important. We’ve teamed up with Clinique to bring you a six-part series dedicated to mastering the art of lining the windows to your soul. Over the coming weeks, we’re going to show you how to achieve an array of styles that make your go-to cat eye look like child’s play—all with unexpected pops of color from Clinique’s new Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara and Skinny Stick Eyeliner for fall. 

Ashley Moore’s infectiously bubbling personality is what our makeup artist Min Min Ma wanted to bring out with eyeliner tricks. She kept the technique simple to let the vibrant blues bring a pop of color and fun to Moore’s look. To highlight the versatility of the hues, she created a second look with a different lip and fuller lashes. Like Moore's beauty tricks below, the results are nothing short of a good time. See for yourself ahead!

What does beauty mean to you?
Makeup is a dangerous thing. Just kidding! Makeup is something I turn to to bring out the different characters that live within my self. A cat-eye makes me feel a little dangerous! There’s energy in a smokey eye. You can do so much with makeup. I love how it can heighten your sense of self.

What's the best piece of beauty advice you've been given?
Wash your skin and moisturize. It’s something that can’t be stressed enough. Everyone’s skin is sensitive. You’ve gotta take take of it.

If you've only got a few minutes to get ready, what are a few things you absolutely have to do?
If you’re going out for a night and you don’t have much time to prep, throw on a cat eye. It adds just the right amount of edge. Follow that with some eyebrow touchups and it’ll make your face pop.
