Have you ever wanted to copy your cat's style? Okay maybe not so much, but you can achieve a gorgeous cat-eye look with a little liner. To get the most runway-worthy lined peepers, make sure you consider the way your eyes are set on your face. For you ladies with deep-set eyes, the last thing that you want is to make your eyes look set back further and appear smaller. That means using the right lining technique to open up and enhance your gorgeous eyes.
Prep your eyes with a light coat of foundation. This creates a light base for your liner to stick to. Smoother application and long-lasting liner, anyone? You can't deny that's worth taking a few seconds before lining your eyes to pat some foundation on them. Even if you're not in the mood for a full-on face of makeup, you can just put a bit of foundation here and be set and ready to cat-eye.
Hold your liner in one hand and start lining just above the top lash line of one eye. Because you have deep-set eyes, the most important thing when lining your eyes is to keep the line thin and as close to your lash line as possible. This helps you achieve the look you want, but without darkening your eyes and causing them to appear deeper set and smaller. Extend the line across the top lash line to the outer corner of your eye.
Flick the line up a bit at the end of your eye, creating a winged-out effect. To help open up your pretty peepers, go over the flicked up line a couple of times just to darken it up a bit. By leaving the rest of the line thinner and darkening the area by the outer corner of your eye, you open up and enhance your eyes. Repeat this on your other eye and you're purr-fect. Go wow all the boys -- and girls -- with your flirty, fantastic feline-inspired style.
Although adding a bit of liner to the water line of the eyes is a favorite beauty trick for many gals, don't do this if you have deep-set eyes. This is only going to add more depth and make your eyes look more closed up.
