The Kitten Eye

Confession: I am a complete klutz when it comes to eyeliner.

So, when my sister told me about kitten eyes I didn't get particularly excited because I knew I'd end up looking like a pirate if I attempted it.

(In case you're unfamiliar with kitten eyes, it's the baby sister of cat eyes. Friendly for daytime and girls who don't like to wear pounds of eye make up! Apparently, it's all the rage with Angelina Jolie and Rihanna? Hmm.)

Fast forward a week. I'm still thinking about kitten eyes. I Google "kitten eye makeup" (Harmless, right? Wrong.) Let me tell you, there are some scary tutorials out there. Line with pencil and then with liquid liner. Put scotch tape on your face. What?

And then I found this.

The girl is a little redundant. And you can probably skip to 1:05. But at the end I got it! And now I can do a kitten eye! If you're already competent with eyeliner, this video is a little more concise!

Tip: When you draw the line, start at the outer corner of your eyes and just extend the line of your bottom lid.

P.S. - I stumbled across 5 Takes On Cat Eye Make-Up  while researching kitten eyes and love it too :)


  1. I've never heard "kitten eyes" before, that's adorable! xo - eliza

  2. Cool tips, I think for me using liquid eyeliner it's been a matter of practice makes perfect.. I'm sure you're going to be a pro in no time ;)
