2 Easy ways to create a cateye Creating the perfect cateye can be really hard and believe it or not, but a lot struggle with creating this look. This look has really blown up this since last year and everyone seems to be loving it, but there are a few who are struggling to create this look, so today I would like to share with you 2 Easy ways to Create a Cateye.

One thing to remember when you are creating a cateye is that it takes practice. Your first time will most probably not be a success (at all) and most likely end in frustration. But really all it takes is patience and practice and in no time you will be creating a cateye with ease.

I honestly don’t know how I didn’t start wearing a cateye earlier, because without it I feel quite naked. I have really come to love this look as it’s really feminine, striking and it makes my eyes look gorgeous! This is really the one look that creates a gorgeous and flattering effect for almost any eye shape.

Okay, now let’s get down to business on how you can create a cateye look. I have put together the 2 ways that I use to create this look and that I find the easiest, but before I start with the techniques there are two things you need to consider:

1. What product you will use to create your cateye
It’s really important to find a product that you are happy to work with and that works easily. I find it much easier to work with a liquid liner with a very thin brush which enables me to draw steady lines with ease.

2. For a perfect black look, line the top of your eyelash line with a pencil before you start.

Step 1: Start drawing the line on your upper eyelid. Make sure that you draw this line as close as possible to the lash line, as this is the line that determines the thickness of your liner. You can decide if you want a thick line or a thin line, but I much prefer a thicker and more dramatic line.

Step 2: Next you will start with the wing of your eyeliner. Start the flick from the bottom of your lash line (where your upper lash line starts) and create an upward flick. You can decide the length and the angle of your flick.

Step 3: Now you will combine the flick you just created and the eyeliner on your upper lash. Simply take your eyeliner and draw a line back to the upper lash line. this will create an empty space that is the corner of your cateye.

Step 4: Simply fill in the open space and you should now have a cateye look. To make it thicker or bigger you can extend your flick and draw a thicker line between the upper lid line and the flick.

Step 1: Start by drawing the flick of your cateye. You can decide the length and the angle of your flick.

Step 2: Draw a straight line from the tip of your flick to the end of your lower lash line. This will be the basis of your cateye.

Step 3: Fill in the open paces in your cateye to create your look. You can choose how much of an arch your cateye has and play around with that.

I hope that you found this post helpful. I am thinking of doing a short video on these two techniques, if any one would be interested I would love to hear about it, so please leave me a comment below.
