Makeup Tutorial – How to Get Perfect Cat Eyes

by Katie Reed

Don't forget to share!

Ever since Amy Winehouse made them famous, it seems like everyone is obsessed with how to get perfect cat eyes. The winged eyeliner look was popular back in the 60s, and now it has made a HUGE comeback. It’s a great everyday look. A fresh face with dramatic eyes will mean you are remembered for sure!

Start your Cat Eye look by applying foundation like you would with your normal makeup routine.

Next, use some liquid eyeliner and start with small dashes across your eyelid, right up against your eyelashes. Liquid eyeliner works best for this, because you get a smooth line and it’s not smudged.

After you’ve swiped the entire length of your lid, it’s time to add some flare! Fill in the line a bit more so it’s thicker, then swoop it out past your eyelid. Pull your eye tight – towards the side like in the photo above – to accomplish this.

Curl your eyelashes, and add mascara. If you’re looking for a more dramatic look, apply mascara to the bottom lashes as well.

The cat eye look pairs well with pretty much any type of lipstick, but bright red lipstick gives you a super romantic look!

For me the cat eye has always been so hard to master, but you make it look so easy! I’ll have to give it another try. And I love your pink hair!

This is definitely a tricky one to master, especially with the waterproof Kohl eyeliners as they are not very forgiving that’s for sure! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

That looks so cute on you! I am not sure that at 45 I could pull it off lol, but it looks great!

As much as I love the cat eye look, I am terrible at applying liquid liner and I have a feeling I would look like I had 2 black eyes! It looks great on you though!

As I get older I use less make-up. But you gave a great tutorial on cat-eye liner. Make-up is a great way to express yourself and have fun.

Perfect cat eye look. Thanks for the detailed steps and pics makes it easier for people like me to apply and try. Will definitely try it this weekend!

I have never seen anyone explain the cat-eye step by step like this before. Perhaps, I will be a little less afraid to try it now. However, I have never used liquid liner before and it kind of scares me, lol!

My daughter does this with her eyes. I need to learn how to do it. I got to pick up liquid eyeliner though.

Looks great! I love doing cat eyes…I can do them pretty well but the only problem is my eyes are slightly different so I have to make sure the angle is the same 😉

Thanks for this step by step guide. I love how those cat eyes looked, but I didn’t know how to do it.

You made it look very easy. I am sure I will mess it up, lol. Thanks for the titorial though.

Wow how lovely. I rarely wear make up and when I do I don’t try anything like this because I know I will mess it up. I’ll have to give it a try!

This is a great a greta makeup tutorial. I feel makeup retarded sometimes when it comes to cat eyes, For some reason when I attempt to put the liquid eye liner on i doesn’t like to go on smooth and becomes blotchy.

Beautiful! This is a wonderful make-up tutorial. The cat eye look has been my signature look for years. 🙂

I think that’s more of a younger generation thing. I am not all that interested in it, but I have seen a few people who have tried it and they didn’t look that good. They need to heed your advice.

That’s a great tutorial for the cat eyes, but now I prefer drawing the puppy eyes that droops down. It’s more for the Asian young looking.

My daughter is really good at this too. Yours turned out great. Good hand w/the tail!

You make it look so easy, but I know I will have a hard time. LOL. I don’t wear makeup at all and I don’t know how to put on makeup. Thanks for the tutorial though.

You make it look easy but I can’t keep my hand from moving all over the place. I will give this a try one more time but I’ve become a slave to the eye pencil. It doesn’t last as long as liquid liner.

I love this look. It looks so easy to do. I will have to try this with my Daughter.

What a great tutorial! I’m all about makeup and the cat eye is definitely a tough one to master! I have a shakey hand so me and liquid eyeliner. Ughhhh lol… It’s a battle daily to make straight lines lol

It always blows my mind to see the work that goes into makeup. I feel like I’m seeing the wizard behind the curtain.

Your eyeliner looks AWESOME! I used to struggle doing a winged liner but after a lot of practice I finally got it down. Great tutorial!

this is really pretty but i will never be adept at applying make up, especially in the eye. i might end up blind! haha

Why does it looks so easy when others are doing it? Hehe. I guess, practice makes progress. I’ll keep practicing this until I get that perfect or at least even cat eyes. Usually, one side is bigger than the other! hehe.
