After watching the YouTube eyeliner tutorial featuring Alexa Chung that we posted a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to try her sophisticated cat eye look for myself.
While I am huge eyeliner enthusiast, the liquid kind has always intimidated me — I normally opt for brown or black powder eyeshadow applied with a small brush, which not only gives me more control, but it's also way easier to blend in or smudge when you make a mistake.
But, I've been lusting after the more graphic look for a while, and once I had worked up enough confidence to test it out, I opted for this liquid eyeliner by Make Up Forever, which has proven to be pretty great. Yes, the thin brush is tricky the first few times, but once you have the liner just as you want it, it literally does not budge.
No matter how steamy it is outside or how sweaty you get commuting on the subway/working out/dancing in da club, the cat eye you worked so hard for will still be in place. And remember, practice makes perfect!
Make Up Forever Aqua Liner, $23, available at Sephora.
