If you want to master this mysterious, witty look that will make you appear more like a predator than a prey, read on. We will tell you a few secrets

1.      A good cat eye is different widths all the way. Begin it with a thin line and make it thicker towards the ending. Even better, Begin at the end i.e. the outer corner of the eye.

2.      A cat eye-liner is not a one size fits all formula. It depends on the depth of the crease and shape of your eye. There are two main cat eye wing shapes: Triangular and curvy. A triangular wing comes straight up and then in. The triangular shape works best for large eyes and adds definition.  A curvy wing comes out, rounds at the bottom and curves up. Curvy wings are best to make your eyes look bigger through the elongated lash line that you create.
