Let’s face it: Unless you have a degree in geometry, the steady hands of a surgeon, or an inclination for art, mastering the technique of liquid eyeliner is just plain hard. Luckily, sketching on exotic cat eyes just got a whole lot easier thanks to this one sticky trick. Here, we teach you how to use good ol’ run-of-the-mill tape as a stencil. Trust us, it’s a game changer.
We first present you with our finished face, sans eyeliner. Notice how even with mascara, shadow, and brow pencil, the eyes still lack a certain sense of definition—especially when paired with such a punchy lip.
To begin, take an inch-long piece of Scotch tape and press it to your hand a few times to dull some of its adhesive power. This will help it from sticking too severely to your delicate eye area.
Place the tape underneath your bottom lashes at the outer corner of your eye and angle it towards your temple. Avoid angling the tape towards the end of your brow, otherwise your wing can take on more of an Amy Winehouse-esque hooked appearance. We’re going for a Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wing here.
