The Classic

The classic cat eye consists of a liquid liner that is thinner in the inner corner of the eye and gets thicker towards the outer edge an is followed by a flick at the end.

Start this look by creating the flick first. Angle your brush or liquid liner pen with the lower lash line and swipe up. Starting at the lower lash line will create a more elongated look for your eyes as opposed to a curled up end to the eyeliner.
