Nicki Minaj is queen of the cat eye, and although I love this look, like most of my girlfriends, I still haven’t mastered it. Read expert tips on how to get the perfect cat eye below!
Nicki Minaj‘s cat eye liner is always on fleek, and now an expert makeup artist is spilling how to copy her selfie-ready look.
Jessica Scantlin, Director of Artistry at Blushington, tells HollywoodLife.com:
“To get a sexy cat eye, you’re going to first have to think about your eye shape. If you have a more hooded eye, keep it more subtle as opposed to dramatic. The easiest thing to use to get a cat eye width is a pen liquid liner. When you are applying it yourself, you have more control with a pen over a brush and gel eyeliner. My favorite is the stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, Intense Black — it will give you the ultimate precision.
The best way to start is to start small — do not rush! Everybody’s biggest mistake is rushing when doing eyeliner — take your time and apply little by little. When you get three-quarters of the way, start dragging it up a little bit. Once you do this, go to the lower part of your outer eye and connect it up to where you left off. This should look close to an extended triangle. If you want more drama like Nicki, you can take a black shadow and smudge out the top so that way it is a little more smudged and dramatic winged eyeliner.”
