I was inspired to do a cat eye look after watching MakeupByAlli's recent how-to video (link). As it turns out, this is really not that difficult to create - it just takes some time and patience.
The Real Techniques fine liner brush (link) was great for the job. I normally use a slanted eyeliner brush, but the Real Techniques one surprised me - it holds product really well and lays it down evenly and not too thickly.
I followed Alli's technique, so I won't describe it step-by-step. I only used gel eyeliner - the Joe Fresh Style Gel Eyeliner in Raisin (link). [Side note: take a look at this post (link) for a look at the Joe Fresh Spring 2014 cosmetics.] I think just using gel liner gives a more lived-in look because the liner isn't perfectly crisp. Gel liner is the key to a perfectly faded out wing!
A Joe Fresh flat brush (pictured) was used to clean up underneath the line - one dipped in makeup remover and a second dipped in the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in 51 Light Radiance (link). Gel liner also lets you easily tap away the end of the wing, as Alli describes.
Plenty of L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara and voila!
How do you create a cat eye?
