Ha! I couldn't resist that play on words! In doing my usual beauty research, and tracking trends, I have seen the cat eye look becoming increasingly popular. So I thought I would look online at some tutorials on how to achieve a symmetrical cat eye look. I found a little trick I thought I would share with all of you. I tried it for the first time tonight and was impressed with how well it worked. I think I just might rock the cat eye look more often!

Here is a step by step guide on how to achieve the 'perfect cat-eye':
6. Make sure to keep you eye open when you apply your liner so you know how the final product will look.
7. Connect your liner on your lid with your wing you drew. Trace along the line and connect the wing to your lid. I traced right over the liner since I drew it so lightly. You can also trace above or below your nude line then remove it with a q tip.
8. Repeat steps 1-7 on your other eye.
9. Make sure your 'wings' are as symmetrical as possible. As you can see I still had to add a bit of liner to my left eye in the picture, to both hide the nude liner as well as match the width of the liner on my right eye.
The shape of your wing, length and liner thickness are about personal preference. When it comes to liner thickness always start thin and build your thickness because once you have applied liner too thick there is no turning back. Your only option is to start over. Last but not least apply the rest of your makeup and you're all set to go!
For those ladies who wear glasses don't think you can't rock this look. You most definitely can. Have fun with makeup. That's what it's all about!
