How to get the perfect cat eye

Voila!I want to be an eyeliner pro but sadly it's not in my genes. But the Carol Shaw, founder of Lorac, gave me a tip for the perfect cat eye that renewed my hope! I will now one day master this classic makeup technique.

See what it is after the jump...

"Using either liquid liner or a teeny tiny brush dipped in gel liner, look down into the mirror - not up! Looking up (like most gals) messed up your perception of your eye - and therefore the line. While you look down, start at the tip of the outer corner of your eye (the end of the flip) and work your way in towards your nose. While yes, my cat eye is still a bit wonky, it has come leaps and bounds from the hideous shape it was before. A few more times and it may become Amy Whinehouse worthy."
