HOW TO DO KITTEN EYELINER

WITH CHRISTINE CHERBONNIER
  • You’ve seen it on TikTok, now it’s time to get the look. We’re talking about kitten liner, cat eye’s little sister. Fall’s It-eye makeup look, this linear trend literally looks good on everyone and "enhances what you already have without changing the natural curve of your eye shape." We asked celebrity makeup artist Christine Cherbonnier to break down the steps to achieve this style. Read on for the purr-fect breakdown…

  • Makeup artist Christine Cherbonnier shows how to get the kitten eyeliner look with liquid eyeliner.

  • WHAT YOU NEED TO CREATE THE KITTEN EYELINER LOOK:

    "The Hyper Easy Liquid Liner is the perfect product for this technique because it has a petite tip, so you have more control and are able to get closer to the lash line."

  • HOW TO GET THE KITTEN EYELINER LOOK:

    "I created the liner tail first, starting from the outside of the lash line, following with a pointed cotton bud with a tiny amount of makeup remover on it, to sharpen the line, making it perfect by pulling the cotton bud outwards and removing any mistakes. Then, I created short little liner strokes from the outside of my lash line towards the inner part of my eye line until I got to where the iris (the colored part of your eyes) ends. Lastly, I reversed directions and scooted the liner in little strokes back out to the outer corner, but this time placing the liner underneath my lashes until I got back to where I started. With this technique, I never feel the pressure of drawing one straight line, I can just use the Hyper Easy Liquid Liner to make small strokes back and forth along the lash line, above and below my lashes."

  • LIKE CHRISTINE'S LOOK? HERE'S WHAT ELSE SHE'S WEARING...

    FACE: "For this look, I used Instant Age Rewind Concealer in shade 122, which I buffed in through my T-Zone. I finished with the Fit Me! Pressed Powder in shade 220, to lightly even out my skin.


    EYE: "I went in with Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara in Brownish Black to coat all lashes. I tend to use a lighter mascara color with my liquid liner so you can still see the dark liner through the lash."


    LIPS: "My favorite lip color for everyday wear is the Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in On The Grind. I apply it like a liner so it's darker towards the outer part of my lip and then I blot my lips together for a light lip application all over."
