We take the cat eye very seriously around here — and we know a thing or two about making liner last. The golden rule? Always set your liner, as you would makeup on any other part of your face.
Start by lining your upper lash line with a product of your choice. We love liquid or gel liners like IT Cosmetics Superhero Liner — it is ideal for a cat eye because it glides on smoothly and is crazy pigmented, the ideal qualities you want for this type of look. It’s also waterproof for up to 24 hours, is incredibly precise, and the formula is packed with good-for-your-lashes ingredients.
Once you’ve applied your eyeliner and winged it out, go back over the line with an angled brush and eyeshadow like IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette. This powder addition will not only darken and crisp up the line you’ve already applied, it will make lock your cat eye in place. M Crowd influencer Miranda Mendelson takes it one step further: “I’ve really been liking this look of connecting my winged liner to a cut crease and filling in the outer corner for dramatic effect,” she says. And it’s that combination of liner and powder that sets the look, ensuring it lasts for hours to come.
