The Cat Eye

The cat eye has become a beauty staple similar to that of a red lip or a flawless complexion. While there is no right or wrong way to channel your inner feline, there are a few essential tips to making the wing work. Celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle gave these 5 steps for creating the cat eye. Basically, he suggests drawing a line with shadow and then going over it with a liquid or gel. The wing is the last step in his version of the perfect cat eye.

Refinery 29 Beauty Editor Megan McIntyre prefers a kitten wing (what she call’s “a teenage girls’ version of the cat eye.”). Says Megan, “I’ll do a kitten eye, a trick that I picked up backstage at Fashion Week from MAC makeup artist, Gregory Arlt. He called it a kitten eye because it’s just a little up-tip, instead of a full swoop. It’s . When doing a winged eyeliner, it’s important to go up before the shape of your eye goes down. Your eye has a natural high point before it goes down and at the very end, if you follow that line and keep going down, you’re going to drag your eye down and it’s going to make your eyes look droopy. Before the lash line ends, swoop it up so you don’t get that droopy-eye effect.

Friday’s inspiration comes in the form of these artistic and outside-of-the-box winged liner looks:
