Figuring out where to put the swooshed tail of a cat-eye—and getting them symmetrical? Sometimes it feels like getting into Mensa would be easier. But if you pay close attention to these shots of Keri Russell, I might be able to help take the headache out of the whole ordeal with the help of a little makeup trick.
Notice in the shot with her eyes closed exactly where the tail falls: in the natural indentation of her bone right above the outer corner of her eyes. That’s a little trick—you can use that dent in that bone as a guide (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, very gently press the area on the outer corner of your eye to find that spot where your bone goes in. Just start your tail in the dent created at the deepest point of that “valley” and go up toward the very outer corner of your eyebrow. Then repeat on the other side. As long as your eyes are fairly symmetrical, the cat-eye should look pretty even.
P.S. Her makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, tweeted out this info about the look: “Tonight the beautiful Keri Russell attends #WGA I used “BANG” lip pencil @UrbanDecay fitting name I’d say!”
