How To: Cat Eyeliner

April 17, 2012
This is how I like to do a cat eye.  It's clean, pretty and easy to do.

You will need:
1.  Fluid Line - Blacktrack by MAC (This stuff is the beeeeeeest.  It looks like liquid but it's a lot easier to apply.  Plus it lasts ALL day.)
2.  Short angle brush

1.  Start by applying liner along your lash line to the outer corner. 

2.  Bring the liner down to the inner corner.  I find it easier to look straight forward as I apply in the inner corner. 

3.  Extend the outer corner.  This is the hardest part to master because every eye shape is different.    Just think of using the eyeliner to fake winged eyelashes.  Look straight forward and just follow and extend the curve of your outer eyelashes.  

4.  Use eyeliner to draw a line that connects the outer point of your cat eye to about the middle of your eye.  This will thicken the liner on the outer half of your eye, making the cat eye look more dramatic. 

5.  Use a q-tip and makeup remover to clean up the bottom edge of the liner, making it nice and crisp.


  1. Thank you for this! Will any short angle brush work or is there a certain brand that you like?

    1. I use the MAC brush but I have some cheap ones that work great too.

  2. I also tried cat eyes but it wasn´t good for my eyes because it looked unnaturally ... i used black eyeliner but than i figured out that brown color looks better ...

    btw nice post
