1 Smokey Cat Eyes
Smokey eyes and cat eyes are the two hottest trends, so why wouldn't you combine them? The woman in this video grabs a piece of scotch tape and places it against her eye, so that she has a line to follow when creating her cat eyes. Of course, before you place tape against your lids, make sure to get rid of some of the tape's stickiness by placing it against your hand and ripping it off. You don't want to end up irritating your face when you're trying to enhance the look of it.
2 The Feline Flick
Grab a black pencil and start by outlining the inner corner of your eyes. Make sure to create a dark V, so that it give you the dramatic look you're going for. Then you should drag your pencil along your lash line. When you reach the outer corner of your eye, place a dot in the spot where you want to connect your line. It'll help you avoid making any mistakes.
3 Bold, Black Cat Eyes
Here's a technique that you probably haven't tried before. Instead of outlining your lash line with a pencil, you should use that pencil to outline the crease of your eyelid. Then you should place some dark eyeshadow over it and some shimmery shadow underneath it. Once you do all that, you can use dark liner against your lash line.
4 Angelina Jolie Inspired
This take on the cat eye was inspired by Angelina Jolie. As the woman in this video will show you, it's easier for you to apply eyeliner when you use a brush. If you simply use a pencil, then it'll be more difficult for you to keep your lines straight.
5 Bronze Smokey Cat Eyes
This makeup style will look amazing on any age or skin tone. Instead of doing your liner first and then applying your shadow, the woman in this tutorial does it backward. She applies all of her shadow ahead of time to start her smokey look, and then she finishes it all off by using her eye pencil. Of course, always make sure to have a q-tip nearby in case you make a mistake that needs cleaning up.
6 Cat Eye and Cut Crease
This makeup style is inspired by the 50s and 60s. The woman in the tutorial places tape against the corners of her eyes and traces a long line against it to create a fierce, dramatic look. That's why this makeup style is perfect for a party or any other big event. It's anything but casual.
7 Hooded Eyes
If you have hooded eyes, you might hate doing your eye makeup. However, it doesn't have to be that way. If you follow the advice in this tutorial, you can create sexy cat eyes on your hooded eyes.
You'll never have to worry about creating cat eyes again if you follow these tips. What other tips do you have for women who wish to create perfect cat eyes?
