The cat’s eye flick is a technique that, when mastered, is universally flattering. It enhances your lash line and opens up your eyes for a gorgeous result. No wonder it was a favourite of old Hollywood beauties like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe and remains a staple of make-up artists today...
Like us, you've probably spent way too long in front of a mirror trying to get your eyeliner flicks even, before giving up and starting all over again. Sound familiar? Thankfully, by using our make-up artists’ simple trick below, you can wave goodbye to wonky, lopsided eyeliner forever!
Draw a dot in liquid eyeliner on the outside corner of your eye, depending on how high and far you want your cat’s eye flick to extend.
Using the dot as a marker, draw a straight line connecting the dot to your lower lash line. Then go back to your dot and draw another line – this time towards your upper lash line.
Fill in the triangle shape you’ve created and blend along your upper lash line for the perfect cat’s eye flick!
