A great way to get perfect liner all the time, every time, is using an eyeliner stencil to recreate a flawless cat eye flick! In a world where beauty trends are unpredictable and constantly evolving, it’s nice to know a simple trick on how to create the ever famous cat eyeliner look. Creating the perfect winged eyeliner look will no longer be a challenge thanks to this easy step-by-step tutorial!
Step 1: Place the stencil precisely on top of your eyelid, paying attention to the position of your own natural curves. Some stencils have lines on them to guide you in your positioning. Once placed, hold it firmly with your fingers without letting it slip.
Step 2: Grab a stiff-angled brush and apply quick strokes to fill in the stencil with black eye shadow. Gently fill in whatever is inside the stencil by applying short, light strokes that mimic the stencil’s length and shape.
Step 3: Carefully remove the stencil from your eyelid so it won’t smudge your masterpiece. Then, carefully refine the cat eye flick with your liquid eyeliner. For best results, you may switch to a thinner eyeliner brush. Once you are ready, repeat these steps with the other eye. Make sure you apply thin strokes so you can have everything under control. Make good use of Q-tips as they are extremely helpful for thinning out wings and lines so you don’t have to start over.
Step 4: Finish off the look with 2 to 3 coats of your favorite thickening black mascara. It is better if you use waterproof, long-lasting mascara to intensify the natural richness of your eyes.
Voilà, a finished, well defined cat eye effect! Now you can use this magic stencil trick every time you need to create a flawless cat eye flick and achieve this amazing final look.
