The "cat-eye" or winged eyeliner trend is one that seems to come and go, but for Spring/Summer 2014, it is a trend that is staying with us on the long beach days way into the warm summer evenings. From the runways to the streets, girls everywhere are busting out the bold black eyeliner and lining their lids with wide winged cat-eyes for a feminine, yet seductive makeup look.
This is a look that many girls struggle to create, but it's easier than you think! You can create this look using a liquid or pencil liner, but for a beginner we find that pencils are easier to work with. However, a liquid will give you better results as long as it is done correctly. And, a little hint from the experts: most makeup artists say to use a cotton swab dipped in some makeup remover to perfect the winged tip on the edge of the eyelid. For a no fail solution, we love Tarte's brand new easy to use "Light, Camera, Lashes" Precision Longwear Liner. It is so easy to use and will have you looking like a star in seconds for about $20!
If you are still having doubts about how to perfect this makeup trend, try going to a makeup counter or a savvy friend and have them teach you their tricks of the trade. Or, check out the awesome DIY video below if you're at home and want to try on your own! Don't be shy, give the glamorous cat-eye trend a try for prom, or any other day, and we know you will be the center of attention!
