[step 1] — with liquid or gel eyeliner, line eyes from the inner to the outer corner, the line gradually becoming thicker toward the outside of the eye

[step 2] — draw in a ‘flick’ from the outer corner of the eye, heading upward in a diagonal direction; carefully replicate the same angle on the other eye

[step 3] — draw a second line beginning slightly in from the outer corner, joining the ‘flick’ to form a triangle

[step 4] — fill in the triangle so it becomes a thick line

[step 5] — apply mascara

[step 6] — apply demi lashes and inidvidual lashes toward the outer corners of the eyes to enhance the ‘cat-like’ shape


. . . finish with a sexy bouffant and a pair of gilded ears, and you’ll be the prettiest, sexiest kitten at the party . . .
