The Eyeliner Trick That Will Save Your Life (Metaphorically)

October 9, 2015

HOW did we live without this?

When it comes to makeup, eyeliner takes the cake for the most painfully difficult task to master in a hurry.

Trying to perfect your winged cat eye as you rush out the door for work is like trying to get a teenage girl to remain calm at a One Direction concert. It’s not going to happen.

Thankfully though, some genius minds on the interwebs have come up with a solution to this dilemma and as soon as you implement it into your makeup routine, believe me when I say, it is going to save you a LOT of time and struggle.

The trick? Scotch tape.

No, you didn’t read that wrong, all you need is a plain old reel of regular, run-of-the-mill dollar store scotch tape to transform your morning makeup routine. Here’s how…

What you need:


Step 1

Run a small strip of tape from the outer corner of your eye, pointing up diagonally toward your brow after applying your foundation and setting powder.


Step 2

Using the tape as a guide, draw your winged flick alongside it with an eyeliner pen. Carefully peel back the tape, and presto! Saeamless eye makeup, every time. You’re welcome.
