Even when you’ve just got minutes to spare, a classic cat eye can lend some confidence and attitude to your everyday look — whether you’re in more of an Audrey, an Amy, or a Nicki mood.
Getting the perfect flick, of course, is a whole other story.
You know how it is: There’s the oft-cited “sisters, not twins” rule, but achieving passable sister flicks — much like dealing with an actual, real-life sibling — requires a ton of patience and commitment. From extending one wing a little too high to realizing your line is far too bumpy, to the dreaded blinking before your liner’s dried, you might be tempted to call the whole thing off.
But you’ve got this! Once you get past attempt number “who’s counting?” it gets easier. Natural. Like you’ve been doing it your entire life. To help, we chatted with NYC-based makeup artist Annie Kim about how to ace the look. Forget using spoons or any other paraphernalia with a traceable curve; all you need is a quality liquid liner. You should have nothing to fear about attempting an enviable cat eye — except for maybe accidentally jabbing someone with that razor-sharp wing.
