1. Draw the first flick.

Draw a diagonal line starting from the bottom corner of the outer eye upwards and stopping where you want the wing or cat eye to stop. Shorter for a small wing and longer for a big, more extravagant wing.

TIP: The longer the first line you draw; the bigger the wing! Practice what kind of wing suits you and the look you're trying to create before you unveil your new look to the world!

2. Complete the outline of the wing.

Start a quarter in from the outer corner and draw another line that meets the first line to make a point. You now have the outline of your wing!

3. Finish up

Colour in the outline, making sure there are no gaps.

Then, starting from the inner corner, draw a line along your lashes. Try to get as close to the lash line as possible. At this point you can touch up any jagged edges in the wing.

TIP: Start thinner and add a little at a time. Practice, practice, practice.

Now for the lashes...

To finish off this look, add a strip of lashes! Alana uses Ardell Natural 110 Lashes.

(Optional) For a more dramatic cat-eye look, add a couple of individual lashes to the outer corners of the eye. Alana uses Ardell Medium Double Individual Lashes.
