Wing It: Cat Eyes For Every Eye Shape

The cat eye is one technique that leaves many feeling defeated. It’s challenging to pull off, and the same eye lining method will not work on every person. The secret? Knowing your eye shape. All you need is our simple eye guide below and a steady hand. If you think cat eyes won’t work on you, think again! A note – it’s common that your eye shape may fall into several categories.
