The Perfect Cat Eye with Clear Tape

The perfect cat eye can make your daytime or evening look beguiling. Your eyes look bigger and more provocative when they are lined with precision. But how to do it without a tell-tale smudge?

Here’s your cat eye beauty hack. Use a bit of tape–you know, Scotch tape, gift wrap tape, clear tape… something that will press against your skin easily, and come off without pulling.

Start with a clean, dry face. Cut a piece of tape about an inch long. Place it against the outer corner of your eye, in an upward angle. Then, begin lining your upper eyelid from the inside corner. When you get the outside edge, go ahead and press against the seam of the tape–it will catch any excess liner, leaving you with a super-smooth cat eye.
