5 Gel Eyeliners To Create The Perfect Cat Eye Every Time
Long-wear gel eyeliner formulas are awesome for creating cat eyes that don’t budge — until you go to take them off. That struggle is real. If you have lash extensions, or just hate tugging at your delicate eye area to remove your wing, try an oil-free option like this liner pot. It goes on super smooth and is so pigmented that a single dip will coat your brush.
Thanks to its creamy, easy-to-apply texture, Smudge Pot is an excellent choice for the makeup rookie. You’ll be amazed at how clean-cut and razor-sharp you can make your cat eye using just a small, angled brush.
Trade in your usual black cat eye for a holographic wing using a NYX Halo Cream Eyeliner. These iridescent rainbow colors are Insta-gold..
Some beauty junkies shy away from gel eyeliners because they don’t like using a brush. If that sounds like you, allow us to introduce the Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner. Simply glide the fine tip along your upper lash line for a straight-edge cat eye or smudge it along your outer corner for a smoky finish.
This gel liner is our go-to for achieving that crisp, patent-leather-esque cat eye line. The finish is glossy, rich and lasts for hours. The satisfying shine it gives off makes us want to draw cat eyes over and over again.
