The Modern Cat Eye

How To Wear It: Trace on liner using a fine-tipped makeup brush (the better for getting the perfect curve and flicked-up edge) and go for a gel formula with a high-gloss finish to catch the light.

If you don't have Gel eyeliner...[ Yes it is possible, If you're a make- up novice or have a limited budget or even can't do with Gel eyeliner]
Here a simple trick to Cat eyeliner or substitute for gel eyeliner.

You need: A Black eyeshadow and Eyeliner brush. Thats all.

Damp the bristles of brush and smear in the eyeshadow pot, enough to let the powder the bristles.
Line your eyes with the brush, and shape them according to your need. If you want slight gel eyeliner glossy look, aafter you damp your bristles smear light petroleum jelly on the brush.

Eyeliner using Colorbar Black tie eyeshadow.

Gel Eyeliner, I've used Maybelline Dramatic Gel eyeliner.

Hope you can notice the difference, It is a subtitute after all.
If you want soft defined eyes with less or not much drama, You can always play safe with Black Eyeshadow!
If you're used to Drama and eccentricity, Well I'm not stopping you. :P
I'd love to try it with Matte eyeshadow, you can try colored ones too.

Incase, You're wondering about the products used.

Personally I love using Eyeshadows as eyeliners.

P.S. I'm not claiming that I did Cat eye, this is how I generally wear eyeliner. *Grin*
