Use clear tape as a guide for the perfect cat eye
Courtesy Hello Rigby The struggle of drawing two perfectly identical wings on both sides is all too relatable. There is nothing more frustrating in a makeup routine than ending up with completely uneven eyeliner lines jutting out in weird directions. This may seem peculiar, but try utilizing your office supplies, like a piece of paper or a slab of clear tape. Place the edge of the tape in line with your bottom lash line and angle it to point to the end of your eyebrow. Use this outline to assist the flick—this foolproof guide will ensure it’s even on each side. (A special shout out to Jenn Rigby of Hello Rigby for demonstrating the tricks!) Here are some other gorgeous eyeliner looks that go beyond basic black.

Courtesy Hello Rigby We’ve all had those days where the snooze button is indulged one too many times. Understandably, drawing an on-point eyeliner flick can be difficult to perfect when crammed for time. If that’s the case, try employing your mascara as a liner by pressing and holding the wand into the root of the lashes for an extra few seconds. Applying more mascara volume on the roots can imitate an eyeliner impression on the eyelid. Use generous layers—around three to four—and opt for a jet or dark black shade for an eye-opening effect.
