Part cat-eye liner, part graphic eye shadow, all drama. An overdrawn cat-eye like this one is the perfect option for the girl who can’t decide if she wants to do bold eye shadow or intense eyeliner. Just choose a high-shine liquid formula like Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On-Eye Pencil ($30) or Lancôme’s Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liner ($25) to get the glossiness just right.
Feeling a little retro? Try a cat-eye that doesn’t end. This one connects the wings and loops all the way back around to the inner corner, leaving the centre bare for more of a ‘60s mod feel. Click here for the step-by-step breakdown on how it’s done.
If you’re looking for less of a time commitment with the same striking effect, try a dual-winged cat-eye. Make the top liner as thick or thin as you please, and then mirror the flick of that wing at the bottom. Just remember to start drawing from mid-lid, not on your lash line. A gel pencil will be easier and create a softer stroke.
