Tips On How To Do Cat Eyeliner For Beginners

  1. Consider the outer corner of your eye as the starting point.
  2. Follow the natural curve of your eye and imagine at what angle you want to create the wing.
  3. Start with the thinnest winged liner and then build on.
  4. In case the winged liner is too thick or too long, use a cotton tip with a little Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover. Gently remove the excess product from your eyelids.
  5. You can further elevate the classic look with a double-winged eyeliner or a reversed cat eyeliner.
