This is one of my go-to tricks for even eyeliner flicks. I used it this morning, as a matter of fact!
Throughout the long, hallowed (not really) history of Karen’s Cat Eyeliner Life, Volume I, I’ve drawn a lot of cat eyeliner looks on my cat lady lids, and over all those years, I can count on one paw the number of times I’ve drawn two perfectly angled flicks. That’s how rarely it occurs!
Most of the time, it’s my left flick. The right will be OK, but the left will turn out wonky, angled either too low or too high, or too short or too long.
It’s pretty much guaranteed that one or both flicks will need an adjustment.
One quick way to fix your flicks is with an eye cream and a Q-tip. What I’ll do is soak a Q-tip with a little bit of the cream, then run that along the edges of the flick to instantly sharpen them and/or fix any mistakes, all while adding some extra moisture around my eye area (something I need anyway).
MAC Fast Response Eye Cream is one of my favorite creams to use for this trick. It’s caffeinated for anti-puffiness power and absorbs quickly into my skin without leaving behind a greasy residue, so I can layer makeup right on top of it without waiting.
Just a quick eye makeup tip if you’re sometimes error-prone (like I am).
Fierce feline flicks for everyone!
