Ever wonder how to get the perfect cat eye or mile high lashes? These expert eye makeup tips and tricks will help you look like you just stepped off the catwalk and into your everyday routine. Better yet they’ll take you mere minutes to master. Here’s how to change the way you do your eye makeup for good:
It’s All About the Base
What good are great eyes if they don’t last? Keep eye makeup fresh by applying a primer to your eyelids and brow bone. So, no matter how many hours you spend at the office or gym, your makeup will power through.
The Perfect Cat Eye
This trend has been around for quite some time, and has proven it’s here to stay. The key is to start with the outside of the eye and work your way in. Use the edge of a spoon, yes a spoon, to get the perfect winged tip. Next, take an eye pencil and draw a dashed line across your upper lid. Connect the dashes with a similar color liquid liner. Fix any mistakes with a Q-tip and coconut oil.
Embrace a Tool of the Trade: Eyelash Curler
What may initially appear as a strange tool is destined to become your best friend. Regardless of how amazing any mascara promises to be, an eyelash curler will only boost its results. Use a hair dryer to warm the edges of the eyelash curler until it’s warm to touch. The heat will help intensify the curl for longer, more voluminous lashes.

Make Your Eye’s Pop
White liner brightens your eyes, so go ahead and fake a full night sleep. It’ll make your eyes look bigger, brighter, bolder –and wide awake! Either apply the liner to the lower lid’s waterline or in a V shape along the inner eye. Take a dramatic stance and use a white liner for a cat eye. White eyeliner can also act as a brow highlighter for an instant eye lift. Line just below and above your eyebrows, and then smudge until blended.
Seal With a Mist
When all the priming and primping is done, the best way to set your makeup is with a facial spray. Try plain mineral water or some natural rose water in a spray bottle. Rose water isn’t just a great setting spray; it also reduces eye puffiness, freshens your face, tones your skin, and it even smells great. So you can take your summer days into long summer nights.
