The feline flick; I’m in.
Where the idea of taking the time to go the extra yards is all too hard? A slash of lips and a splash of fragrance is all the enthusiasm you can muster?
The thought of concentrating, looking in a magnifying mirror and artfully applying a fabulous product is just simply, too daunting?
Thoughts of, “what if it smudges”, “will it run” or “is this ridiculous” dominate and prevent experimentation and adventure?
I have become a little lazy of late with eye make-up. I shouldn’t because a good pencil can change a multitude and make more than a small difference.
Ever since I learned the keep-the-eyes-open trick to applying eyeliner, everything changed. I was no longer scared to apply and wear eyeliner and I felt confident to add a little feline flick.
In the past I had always closed the eye to apply eyeliner, whether liquid or pencil. All wrong.
How To Draw The Feline Flick
To start a pencil and never a liquid.
Apply the pencil with eyes wide open, looking straight ahead into the mirror.
The line is drawn as the eye is seen. Am I making sense?
Start from the centre and draw upwards as you reach the outer lid.
When you close your eyes, you will see that it is a different shading to the one that would be there if you lined your eyes closed.
Open. The eyes look wider and the eyeliner flies up at the edge rather than down.
