The Purrrr-fect Cat Eye

Want that Angelina Jolie cat eye look?  Follow these steps to achieve this stunning yet simple look.

  1. Find the right liner for you.  Both liquid and crème liner products work to achieve a cat eye.  If you choose liquid find a liquid liner with a short pen-tip on the end.  The shorter the tip the more control you’ll have over the liner.  Try Physicians Formula Flet-Tip Eye Marker Ultra Black ($8) or Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen Blackest Black ($9).  If you’re choosing to go with a crème liner go for Loreal Hip Cream Liner ($12) or Physicians Formula Cream Liner. ($11).
  2. To start apply a neutral eye shadow all over lid and use a highlight color right under the middle of the brow.  Then apply a matte deeper color in outer crease.  Try Cover Girl Eye Enhancer Eye Shadow 4Kit - Urban Basics ($5)
  3. Then apply a thin line of the liquid or crème eyeliner along the upper lashes.  Once you have a thin line to follow you can thicken the line until you’re satisfied.  If you’re feeling like your arm is shaky try resting it on the counter top for some support.
  4. The most important step is making the wing on the end of the eye.  Using your liner apply a very thin line on your lower lashes extending just past then end of your lash line flicking up toward the end of your brow.
  5. Lastly, curl your lashes and add mascara.
