Forget free-hand

Only the most talented makeup artists can get the perfect cat eye flick free-handed! Save yourself the trouble and use whatever tool you have near you to help you out – the handle of a spoon or the edge of a business card are both top choices.

Get rid of smudges

A smudge here and there is inevitable. Don’t panic! There are lots of ways to remedy a liquid eyeliner mishap without having to start from scratch.
