Mattie Makeup: Cat Eyed Soul

I’ve always been enamored with the cat eye look. It’s just a very clean and feminine beauty trend that is forever in style. I’m no fan of liquid eye liner, mainly because my hand is incredibly unsteady and I get it everywhere, but if you have the right product you can still pull of an amazing cat eye.

Which brings us to Milani Cosmetics Liquif’Eye Metallic Longwear Eyeliner in black. The. Most. Amazing. Liner. Ever. It’s a pencil eye liner with liquid eye liner results.

When I put on my cat eye, I gently pull the corner of my eye to exaggerate it’s natural shape. I line my eye and drag out the liner to give my eyes a noticeable tail without it looking to dramatic. 98% of time I wear jet black eye liner when it comes to the cat eye. However, it’s fun to try in an electric blue every now and again.

The perfect way to give a cat eye some soul? With a bold matte lip or a glossy lip with a pop of color. Above, I’m wearing Revlon lipstick in “Siren” with a neutral gloss on top.

    Love Milani liners. I also like Physician Formula eye pencil thing. I forget what it’s called but it’s literally like a marker. It’s sort of a cross between a liquid and a pencil. Eva Chen from Teen Vogue recommended it and I’ve been hooked ever since. My hand can’t handle true liquid no matter how much I practice.

    I know this is a late response, but I just discovered your blog and wanted to pose a question. I also love these Milani liners, but I’ve found that the average sharpener doesn’t work well since the pencil is so soft. Any suggestions?

    Put soft eyeliner pencils in freezer for about 5 a 10 minutes. Helps me to keep breaking off the points when the liner is so soft.
