Former eyeliner neophytes agree that drawing the perfect line isn’t completely impossible. With a little time and practice, even the shakiest hand can draw a cat eye with precision. If you’re a busy lady, being able to apply those skills on the go is a godsend. Don’t get us wrong; we love gawking over the intricate styles created by celebrity makeup artists and seasoned beauty bloggers. However, our day-to-day lives sometimes require convenience over fancy designs.
Look #1 Subtle Pop:
Being in the office doesn’t mean your makeup needs to be in a box. Rim your entire eye with a kohl liner to emphasize the shape and add a little wow to your look.
Look #2 Classic with a Twist:
Re-energize this liner look with colors that pop. Create a cat-eye with purples, blues and greens for a statement that’s both classic and modern.
Look #3 Blurred Lines:
Go beyond the line. Do away with structure and smudge your liner from the base of your lashes up to your crease. This creates a quick and easy smoky look.
