Flawless Friday: Purr-fect Liner

Cat eyes. They’re sexy, enticing and a tiptoe over the line from demure to diva. A perfectly drawn cat eye takes precision, a vision and a steady hand. Now, there’s more than one kind of winged lash line. There’s the kind that the CEO will hardly notice. Lanvin took this type of feline-inspired approach with its Fall 2011 makeup scheme. Noticeable, but soft enough to be an everyday appropriate look. Then there’s the one for a night on the town. Just a little va va voom to make the eyes pop. Lastly, there’s the one reserved for the costume party. Over the top, dramatic and just a little too much for the real world. Vivienne Tam took a step into the wild side with über dramatic tiger eyes. Can’t just say cat on these. They’re fierce!

So if you want to rock the look, whatever the occasion may be, a little lesson in technique can’t hurt. We’ll take it any day of the week!

We’ve got an amazing tutorial video for you, courtesy of Sarah Victor. It always makes it easier when you see it done to perfection, rather than just reading it. Sarah knows her stuff, giving a little make up history before getting to the nitty-gritty.

Enjoy, then make that purr-fect liner come to life!
