Though the big, playful polka dots of Minnie Mouse might not translate awfully well to the makeup world, the subtle-yet-bright dots of this cat eye look have stolen our hearts for summer. In fact, with the right color palette, this bold eyeliner design can be great any time of year! Inspired by the bright blues of sea and sky, beauty expert Elyse Reneau shows us how to get the dotted cat eye at home.
What You’ll Need White liquid eyeliner
3-4 thin liquid eyeliners in a variety of colors. (We used a blue palette.)
Step 1: Starting at the inner point of the lash line, apply a thin, white liquid liner with a winged tip. Do not start at the inner corner of the eye, but instead make sure you start where the lashes begin. Let the white eyeliner dry.
Step 2: Use a brightly colored thin-tipped liquid liner to carefully dot within the white eyeliner. Distribute the dots evenly so that there are no big white spaces.
Step 4: Fill in the remaining white space with the third eyeliner color of your choice. Make sure you’ve placed the dots along the top and bottom of the white eyeliner so there’s hardly any remaining white eyeliner showing.
