THE ICONIC CAT EYE You guys might have noticed that I do almost every single day the same make-up. I’ve gotten really attached to it and it became sort of part of me, like you know when you reaally like a pair of jeans : it suits you so damn well you want to wear it every single day because you feel so confident, comfrotable and good in it. Well it’s exactly my case with the cat eye.

A lot of you have been asking me how I do it, trust me it’s super easy once you got the trick and got used to it. At the beginning it could take me up to 1-2minutes to do a really good one. Now I’ll make one in 20 seconds. The best advice I could give is to use an eye liner pen, here I used the Yves Saint Laurent shocking but you can just as much use one from any brand, it just have to have this special pencil/brush tip. So here’s my technique to achieve the perfect sexy cat eye look in 3 steps! 


(click to view item)
EARRINGS : Windsor Store
RINGS : Backstage
EYE LINER : Yves Saint Laurent shocking (lasts forever, really worth it compared to cheaper brands which dry out in less than two weeks)
Lengthen your eye by drawing a thin line up towards your brow, about 0.7 mm (precision!)
From the top on the line you’ve drawn, join the other side of your eye with a thin diagonal line
Fill in and correct the imprefections. Voilà!


Add yours

Your eyes have such a beautiful color, the first photo is really gorgeous ;)

I have been amazed by your cat liner all of the time and yes of course I have noticed that you like that look as do I but somehow I just cant get them exactly the same on each eye. will def. be trying your tips though! thanks! xx. gigi. food and beauty blogger @

Oh yes! Je vais enfin savoir comment bien mettre l’eyeliner! Tu as vraiment bien montrer et les photos sont superbes! Meeeeeerci! :DD

I love how cat eyes look on everyone, but every time I try to do one I do a big mess! haha, I’m going to practice more! By the way, you look beautiful in all of these photos!


perfect make-up tut babe ! love it :)

impressive photos & great tutorial!


I love this look. What lipstick are you wearing?

Please check out and follow my blog! I’d really appreciate it! <3

So beautiful pics!

J’aime beaucoup le cat eye mais je ne sais pas pourquoi je n’arrive juste pas à bien le faire! ICe tuto me donne envie de réessayer encore :P

My cat eye shape changes everyday, which can be frustrating as on some days, I just can’t get it right. Thanks for tips!

Smart to start on that side instead of the inner eye like I usually do (and then I never get them even!), thank you for the tip!

And I love your bow, big enough to be a hat almost!

Amazing portrets! You have so nice skin :)

Omg, you are so beautiful! Love that eyeliner ♥

I love a good cat eye, wear it almost everyday myself as well :)

gorgeous portrets!)

I’ve never tried it this way before – maybe this time I will actually get it right! I think the key is a really steady hand.

I use the same trick too even if i never used during the day.. only for night actions.. but maybe next time i will try because with the daylight you look absolutely stunning!! :)

Loving the pictures!



I might try this pencil now. I just did a make up tutorial on my blog too (that’s funny). You guys come and check it out

Cheerful and elegant photos! Great Post!:)
Best wishes!

Gorgeous, love these pics.

Ah this post! I think I speak for many if I say that a) these are one of the best portrait pictures that I’ve ever seen! b) this tutorial is mind-blowingly good! Your make-up inspired me so much and I started doing a similar make-up few months ago, trying to get the trick! I think it’s very important for everybody to keep in mind the shape and size of their eyes, because when I do a cat-eye, I have to look that I don’t make my eyes look smaller :) Your tutorial is really great and wow it really is so easy! Again I want to mention that these pictures are so good: you are a great model & huge huge WOW to James who took these amazing photos:)

Much love,

It looks so simple… yet I still can’t manage it! >.<


You’re so amazing!
It’s a good advice to me.
Best regards from Poland

Trendy Bow

It looks soooo spimple when you do the Cat Eye, but honestly, I need 20 minutes for it :D Maybe I have the wrong Eyeliner…

Wow great post!! Thanks for the tips!!

Tu es sublime ! Maquillage parfait ))))

I think you meant 0.7 cm.
Good tutorial though!


amazing pictures and a nice step by step tutorial. Good one

That huge bow is so cute, I really like the liner too!

Gonna try it as soon as I’m home!

Soo easy and looks perfect I’ve tried eyeliner a couple times but because I don’t have the steadiest hand it always turned into a squiggly line which I rubbed off but will definately use this technique now, thankss love xox

You look absolutely stunning dear! Love it!

I know this post is about your eyeliner (which by the way looks wonderful!) but I would be so thankful if you would tell me which mascara do you use. I noticed before that your eyelashes are big, defined and, above all, curved. I have long eyelashes, but they are straight, so I’m looking for a mascara which would make them look curved. I would really appreciate your answer. Thank you and a lot of greetings from Croatia, xoxo

gorgeous! You look beautiful in these photos :) I need a good liquid eyeliner and i trust your judgement so i think i am deffo going to check out this one :)
