Beauty Junkies and rookies alike will tell you that right now, the look to have down pat is the cat eye. Flattering on just about everyone, learning how to do a cat eye has become a staple in every girl’s beauty arsenal. With that learning comes a lot of trial and error, as figuring out how to get your winged liner right every time takes a whole lot of practice. Whether you’re in the midst of training yourself via YouTube tutorials or you’re an old pro, these are 10 things that are bound to happen when you apply a cat eye.
You run out of Q-Tips.
These things are a godsend when it comes to fixing up the outer flicks of your cat eye, and it you always seem to run out (or lose them all together) when you need them the most.
You search Pinterest for a tutorial.
There has to be an easier way. Maybe there’s a tool you’re not using? Whatever it is, there will be a pin.
You open your eyes before the liner is dry.
Rule #1 when using liquid liner: keep your eyes closed for a minute when you’re done for dry time. But no one really times this though, and we all end up with slick black creases. Hellooo Q-tip!
You try the tape trick.
Oldest trick in the book (and one I swore by before discovering Shadow Shields) Putting clear tape at an angle against your eye to draw the perfect winged flick. This almost always ends in irritating your delicate eye area when pulling off the tape.
That one tiny speck of mascara ruins the line.
Just after you get the lash line smooth, you apply mascara and get a speck of black just above where the eyeliner ends. Good luck surgically removing that with a Q-tip!
It’s like your nose times it until you finish the perfect flick. The worst.
Liner gets all over your fingers, which gets all over your face.
Just accept that this will be happening and budget in some extra time for clean up. It’s inevitable.
You paint a couple of eyelashes together.
If you’re using a brush and pot, your lashes will undoubtably wind up stuck together somewhere along your lash line.
When both of your wings are magically even on both sides, you tell the world.
Snap chats, Instagrams, text messages and Pins will be happening because you deserve it!
Your friends compliment your makeup.
Bask in the glory, people, because your hard work paid off!
