Calling all chinita girls out there! If you're struggling to do your eye makeup, we've got you covered.

Scroll down and try them out yourself:
1. Exaggerate that flick.
Having monolids gives you the license to draw a dramatic cat eye and actually get away with it. We all know the struggle of perfecting the feline flick, realizing that only a sliver of the line shows up as soon as you open your eyes!

Make your eyes pop with some glitzy shadows on your lids. You may want to experiment with cream shadow sticks for better control and higher pigmentation.
3. This is how you curl your lashes.
Curl your lashes from the roots then lift (but don't pull!). Then swipe a few coats of a volumizing mascara to open up your eyes.

Make your eyes the focal point of your beauty look. You just have to be patient in mastering how to apply a pair.
5. This is your version of smoky eyes.
Take advantage of the surface of your lids. The darker shade at the bottom doubles as your eyeliner. And as the hues lighten at the top, it can also work as a highlighter that adds depth and dimension to your eyes. Nude palettes work best if you want a natural look.

6. Colored liners are your best friend.
If you aren't a fan of eyeshadows but would like to add color to you makeup look, then you can switch up the classic black cat eye with a colored one! It's a fun way to make a statement with your eyes.

From the inner corner of your eye, extend the shimmer up to a third of your lower lids to fully brighten and open up your peepers.
