I love experimenting with eye makeup, but sometimes all that swatching, blending, and layering just to make a tiny mistake and have to start over is just too frustrating.
This is precisely why I love the cat eye (or kitten eye). Sure, drawing a steady line with a heavy liquid liner brush can be intimidating, but the look goes best with minimal-to-no shadow, so if you slip up (or can’t get that winged angle just right), simply remove and start again. Our Birchbox France editors wanted to make this statement eye as bold and easy to get as possible. Take a peek at this how-to video and your cat eyes will be more glam than mod-eyed beauties like Twiggy and Sophia Loren.
The braided updo is probably our favorite hair trend right now and it has no signs of vanishing as we get deeper into fall and winter. As gorgeous as it may be, however, attempting one of these woven styles on our own can be a bit intimidating and confusing.
