Think liquid liner is only good for that perfect cat-eye flick? Think again. Here are all the ways you can use your trusty liner pen.
Getting a perfectly winged cat-eye takes some practice, yes, but it has become one of those looks that will always remain at the top of everyone’s go-to list because it’s simply a classic. The flicked-up eyeliner trend can be traced all the way back to ancient Egypt. Fast-forward to the 1950s, when black liquid liner became a massive hit, and thus began the cat-eye’s worldwide takeover.
Since then, the classic cat-eye has been a mainstay on the music scene, in Hollywood and Bollywood and beyond. It’s perhaps so popular because it elongates the eyes and gives the illusion of bigger peepers—and who doesn’t want that? And it’s also universally flattering—any eye shape can pull off a simple, subtle or strong feline flick.
The fashion runways have produced a few fresh new takes on the black eyeliner trend—think graphic lines and unexpected twists to this cat-eye staple. Here, we break down five looks for you to play around with at home. Each will add an interesting and chic new weapon to your beauty arsenal.
A regular cat-eye is still a must in any makeup lover’s beauty routine. Grab L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Liner and have some fun with it. Pull off the little wing stencil to help create a super-precise flick on the outer corners of your eyes. The stencil really makes this look so simple to achieve, and the formula is waterproof, so it will last all day without budging or smudging. If you’re adept at drawing the cat-eye and don’t need the stencil, you can still create this look thanks to the thin liquid liner applicator.
Add interest to your look by keeping things graphic and oh-so-chic with a black eyeliner flick at the outer corners of the eyes but nowhere else—i.e., start at the edge of your lashes and flick out. Simply add mascara to your top and bottom lashes and go!
