Struggle With a Feline Flick? Maybe It's Because You're Using the Wrong Eyeliner

There’s a reason the cat eyes of Alexa Chung, Audrey Hepburn and Adele are so revered—anyone who has ever tried to apply liquid eyeliner knows that achieving flawless wings is no easy feat. You know the drill by now: You get the outline right, you start filling it in, the line goes wonky, you add more liner to even it up and before you know it, you’re reaching for the makeup remover. Liquid eyeliner is never going to be the easiest part of your makeup routine, but fortunately, there are some clever products out there that take the fiddliness out of feline flicks. (You can even figure out which eyeliner is best for your eye shape.)
