I've just tried gel eyeliner for the first time and I tried a cat eye for the first time. I used a combination of the "tape trick" that someone lovely from here (I can't remember who you were, but thank you!) showed me and doing it freehand. I put tape (I stuck it on my clothes a few times so it wasn't very sticky) to make a template for the lower edge of the line - from the corner of my eye to my eyebrow. Then I did the top edge freehand. Does that make sense?
Anyway, I am quite rubbish at makeup, so I am very pleased with this for a first try. My question is - now what? I guess I should have put a neutral eyeshadow base on under it, right? And then do I put anything under my eyes or do I leave it bare? And then I do mascara at the end, right? Thank you, oh makeup experts!
I want to do this for a hot date with my little sister tonight. I will post a photo of the final result!
