Just imagine… What if every day was Caturday, and your cat eye flicks were always perfect?
Wouldn’t that be grand? 🙂
Some days it does work out that way. I’ll flick my wrist and tada! — a perfect cat eye flick.
Admittedly, those days are rare… Most of the time, the edges of my flicks start out blurry and muddy.
When this happens, don’t panic! It’s easy to fix.
Just grab your current concealer love, put a little on the back of your hand, and pick some up with a small, flat concealer brush. (Side note: if you don’t have a flat concealer brush available, an angled or pointed eye brush works, too.)
Next, run the edge of the brush along the bottom of your flick to sharpen the line.
You can stop there if you want, or keep going. At this point I’ll usually soften the concealer a little by gently running a pointed cotton bud along the edge. It helps to ever-so-slightly soften the edge and prevent an overly sharp, harsh line (that looks like I obviously applied concealer along the edge of my flick).
If you don’t have a pointed cotton bud on hand, you can also load a flat eyeshadow brush with face powder, and then gently run the tip of the brush along the edge of your flick. It’s another way to soften the appearance of the concealer.
Here’s how my flicks usually look before doing this trick — kinda muddy and undefined…
