Girls know all too well that drawing the perfect cat eye is considered both a skill and talent. But getting both eyes even is just half the job, getting your winged liner to work well with your eye shape is another task all together. To help you, we’ve created an easy-to-follow basic tutorial for the perfect cat eye!

Round Eyes

How do I know if I have round eyes?

Round eyes typically have a lot of visible sclera or the white part of the eye. 

Cat eye technique to master:

Elongate the eyes to maximize the shape. To do this, start lining about two-thirds of your top lash line. Extend the line from the outer corner or of your eye but don’t glide it all the way upwards. Do the same to your lower lash line. Extend it and let it meet at the top. Blend the lines if you want a softer look.

Almond Eyes

How do I know if I have almond eyes?

Your eyes have the shape of an almond. And if you look straight ahead, a part of your iris gets covered by your upper and lower lids.

Cat eye technique to master:

Any flick would look good with this shape but what you can do is to increase your eye depth and its intensity. To do this, start with a thin line sweeping across your lids. Build up the intensity on the outer corner of your eye by lining it slightly thicker than the previous step. Then, like the round eye technique, extend your liner, and and let the upward flicks meet together. Fill in the lines and you’re done!

Monolid Eyes

How do I know if I have monolid eyes?

You have little to no eyelid crease and have a less defined brow bone.

Cat eye technique to master:

Go for a straight cat eye so just follow the natural line of your eyes toward the ends of your brows. You can experiment and try out something graphic, dramatic, or even colorful liner techniques!

Hooded Eyes

How do I know if I have hooded eyes?

The natural crease of your lids appears to be hidden so when your eyes are open, there seems to be less visible lid space.

Cat eye technique to master:

Having hooded lids tend to make your eyes appear smaller so you may want to enhance the lids to make it look bigger. So just swipe a generous amount of liner along your lash line and extend it upward to lift up the eyes. Add a little shimmery shadow by your tear ducts to create the illusion of bigger, wider eyes!

Close-set Eyes

How do I know if I have close-set eyes?

Your eyes rest a little closer to your nose.

Cat eye technique to master:

The idea is to create the illusion that your eyes aren’t that close together, so focus on the outer corners of your eyes. Conceal the inner corners of your eye to lighten and open up that part. Next, create a “V” shape on the outer corners of your eye, gradually increasing the thickness, veering away the attention from your tear duct area that emphasizes your eyes’ closeness.

Wide-set Eyes

How do I know if I have wide-set eyes?

Your eyes rest farther away from your nose.

Cat eye technique to master:

The goal is to make them appear closer. So line the inner rim of your eye and extending the line inwards, creating a sharp teardrop shape on along your tear duct area. Create a tiny wing on the outer corner of your eyes to balance out the look.
