Flicked liner is an acquired skill that you’ll only improve at with time and practice. And even for the pros, a few (of like twenty…) Bioderma-soaked Q-tips are a necessity to keep on hand for every application. I’ve streamlined my method into three easy steps, hopefully offering any rookies or even regular wearers some helpful advice for this intimidating endeavour.

Step One

stilaWith your pen, draw an approximately 1.5 cm line in continuation with your bottom lash line, moving outwards, aiming for the very, very point of the ideal end of your brow. Keep the line as thin as possible, cleaning up with your handy-dandy Q-tips if necessary.


Step Two

Line your upper lash line as per usual, going as far into the corners as is most flattering for your face (I typically like to go right into my inner corner. Keep this line thin as well, hugging very closely to the lash line. Smooth out any bumps with your Q-tips.


Step Three

Using the very tip of your liner pen, make a smooth line connecting from a quarters way out from your lash line to about halfway through your flick. Fill in any spaces inside the triangle you’ve just created.

Use the Q-tip to sharpen the final line.

I’ve tried any and every liner that’s been recommended my way for a feline flick, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Stila’s liquid pen is always my best bet, and probably most of yours. I’ll break it down easy for you; It’s very black. It’s tip is super precise to get right into the roots of your lash line, inner-corners, and to the very thin flick of your cat-eye. It doesn’t wear off throughout the day, even on the oiliest of eye-lids. It never clumps. The pen doesn’t dry out after like three uses. The formula is thin and satiny. An easy winner for me.
