You can use either eyeshadow or eyeliner to get the cat eye makeup. Naturally, eyeshadow will grant an appearance that is softer, while eye liner will make the look more defined. Start with the outer corner as that’s the place where the most difficult part will be. So, you can redo it if you don’t like it. Line close to the lashline and upward in the direction of the outer corner of your eye. Use the darkest eyeshadow for the outer corners of your eyes. Apply it in a winged shape. Next, take a special pencil brush and go over that line to soften it. This technique will help you elongate your eyes and make them appear almond rather than round.
