It’s true, it can be tricky to execute a cat eye liner flick with precision, especially as there are so many products out there making it difficult to find the perfect one for you and also, if you’re like me, your ability to do such things varies from day to day.
Some days my hand is slightly shakier, or I’m a little more tired and find it hard to focus or I get the first eye right and the second is a complete mess. Some mornings I feel I’ve really conquered the art and then others, I realise how wrong I am and wish I’d never attempted it.
I’m not sure why I put so much pressure on myself sometimes, as the great thing about eye liner is that it doesn’t always have to be cat eye’d. There are no rule books stating that you have to add a flick to your eye liner.
Using an eye liner like Liquid Define from Eye or Horus, you can simply apply it straight across the top lashes, as close to them as possible, adding definition to the lashes and creating a fuller lash look. Sometimes this look can be the most stunning too, as it’s not too dramatic and enhances the eye, without drawing too much attention to it. I think that it creates a far more natural, every day eye.
If you’re intimidated by the idea of cat eye flicks, but like the idea of eye liner, why not give ‘non cat eye’ eye liner a go. Liquid Define* is particularly perfect for any eye liner novices, as it’s non-irritating formula makes it great for sensitive eyes and for those who require a little time (for removal and re-application) in order to perfect their strokes.
Give it a try! I’d love to hear what eye liner look you go for!
