Ah, makeup… It’s my best friend and my worst enemy. The whole point is to create the illusion of effortless beauty, right? But in reality, there’s usually plenty of effort involved.
For me, the holy grail of the morning beauty routine has always been the perfect cat-eye winged eyeliner. I’ve been working on mastering since I was fifteen, but—just like any nail art that isn’t the foolproof floss hack—my results have always been a mixed bag.
Like these men attempting to understand the beauty and the pain of liquid eyeliner, I usually start off strong. Often, confidence is all you really need to paint the perfect wing onto the first eye. The trouble starts when you try to match the other one.
Every morning is like a face off between my desire for a cat-eye and my inability to keep my hand steady for more than 20 seconds. I end up doing and redoing my eyeliner dozens of times.
Needless to say, I was thrilled to discover an amazing eyeliner hack that cuts my daily heartache down to almost nothing. Instead of struggling for half an hour to match freehand, just make like a kid and use a stencil!
Even better news? There’s already a pre-made stencil perfectly suited for this purpose, and you have on sitting in a drawer in your kitchen right now. That’s right folks, the only thing you need for perfect wings is a spoon.
