Black eyeliner is the dependent variable of my life. From when I wake up in the morning until I take off my makeup at night, I’ve got it on … and not exactly subtly, either. While I love a good tightly lined look that defines the eyes without the telltale sign of makeup, I’m all about laying it on thick. Whether I’m all smoked out or doubly cat-eyed, I just don’t feel like myself without my black eyeliner. The best thing about it is that it’s completely universal: anyone can look good with a slick of noir liner. Using the right formula for the look you wish to achieve is the most important task. Liquid is stark and won’t blend to smoke, while a pencil, no matter how sharp, will never be able to replicate a feline flick. Luckily, black eyeliner comes in many forms. You’ve just got to play with it a bit, maybe even watch some YouTube tutorials, and it won’t be long before you find the look that’s best for you. Still, there’s nothing worse than a liner that flakes, fades, or drags. I’ve given ‘em all a shot, so here’s the tried-and-true formulas to help you find your favorite.

Get the quick how-to, after the jump! Keep reading »

While W may have Photoshopped out all that makes Jennifer Garner look like Jennifer Garner, they didn’t go wrong in the makeup department. Look at the fierce cat eye! Adore.

One problem, though: there’s no bigger beauty challenge than applying liquid liner. It takes a seriously steady hand, just the right mirror angle and an ounce of dumb luck to get it right. Seriously, when was the last time you tried to pull off the whole cat eyeliner look and emerged victorious? I’m pretty decent doing one eye—but I can’t very well go out with just one eye lined! I’ve got a few tips I stumbled upon in my quest for perfectly cat-eye lined lids, after the jump. Keep reading »
