Eyeliner was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia as a dark black line around the eyes. As early as 10,000 BC, Egyptians and Mesopotamia’s wore various cosmetics including eyeliner not only for aesthetics but to protect the skin from the desert sun.


All to say: there’s no argument that a cat eye is a timeless makeup effect. It’s perfect for any eye shape, and it always makes eyes bigger, bolder, and more noticeable. The look is so versatile, you can wear it casually, on its own, for day or intensify it with shadow and bold lashes for a dramatic evening statement. Any type of liner works, too, whether its in pencil, liquid, or gel form


A basic way to achieve the look is to take the eyeliner applicator or brush and start by creating a thin line from the inner corner of your eye. Then extend the line toward the outside corner, increasing the thickness as you go on. Flick the end upwards toward your temple to create the winged effect


There’s many different kinds of eyeliner for example “Subtle, Graphic, BatWing, and Double Wing.” The prices vary on the type of products you choose. For example


1) Inglot Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in 25  $12

2) Ellis Faas Eyeliner in Black $36

3) Inglot Cosmetics Full Metal Eyeliner in 522  $13

4) Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner $34

5) Inglot Cosmetics AMC Eyeliner Gel in 77 $12
