For years, I had been reading so many articles on how create the perfect cat eye. Unfortunately, my success rate at most attempts was pretty bad, if not, downright awful.
Then, the other day, I stumbled across an eyeliner hack in one of my fashion magazines. The claim was that you could create the perfect cat eye using scotch tape. "I have scotch tape", I thought. Still skeptical, I dug out my tape from my office drawer and gave it a try.
1. Apply tape. This eyeliner hack will help you make the perfect cat eye every time. To begin, tear off two pieces of tape and attach them to your face. Angle the tape so that it veers up right at the outer corner of your eye. Here is what it will look like. I am so thrilled to show my face with tape on it.
2. Apply liquid eyeliner along tape line. Drag your liquid eyeliner ( I like to use L’Oreal Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black) along the edge of the tape. The first time I tried it, I was afraid to go up to high, but I soon realized I could take the line up quite high for a better effect. Continue with the liner across the entire base of the lid.
3. Let dry and remove tape. After the liner has dried (sometimes I just blast it with the hairdryer) gently remove the tape and viola, a perfect cat eye.
