There are all sorts of techniques people use to create a winged eye, but we will show you the best way for getting the cat eye look.
There’s really nothing more classic than a winged eyeliner look, commonly referred to as the ‘cat eye.’ It’s such a sleek, clean look, but it can be difficult to achieve without the proper technique. And really, what is the proper technique? The truth is there isn’t one. There are many! There are all sorts of techniques people use to create a winged eye. But we are going to show you the best way for getting the winged eye look in this article.
While some people like to start right at the inner corner of the eye, but it is best to start at the outer end, creating somewhat of a blueprint before drawing the entire line. Begin by drawing a diagonal line from the corner of the eye about halfway up toward the end of the eyebrow. This helps to map out the specific angle and shape of that flirty flick!
Next, create the entire ‘flick’ shape by drawing another line that meets with the first line to create a point. It’s best to draw this shape first and make sure you’re happy with it; if you’re not, you haven’t gone too far yet and you can erase and start over.
