Q&A: How to do a cat eye (eyeliner)

This is how I do my cat eye liquid eyeliner! It’s a long time coming. Above anything yoga related, the most commonly asked question I get on IG is how I do my eyeliner, haha.

I’ve earned a whole new level of respect for beauty vloggers– it’s TOUGH to do this! I don’t have a big portable mirror, so I used a tiny compact mirror that balanced on top of the camera ๐Ÿ™‚ Getting creative over here.

The products I used are below:
EyelinerSephora Collection Fine Line 24 hour Felt Eyeliner
MascaraClinique High Impact Mascara in Black


Over to you! Do you use liquid eyeliner? I’ve been doing it for years, so it feels pretty natural to me now. You know, aside from trying to squint at a tiny screen to make sure I’m doing it right ๐Ÿ˜‰ย

    Lol! I think it’s so funny that this would be on a yoga blog! But even so, I found myself watching it because I was truly curious how to do it! Thanks for the departure from yoga. Watching you always makes me smile! ( Not in a creepy way…lol!)

    I’ve always loved your eye make up so it was awesome seeing how you put it on! Thanks for going through the tremendous work that was required for this video. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    There was something oddly mediative about watching that. Haha!
    I use a similar eyeliner pen, but I only ever use it for special occasions… I’ve probably only done about 6 cat eyes in my lifetime!
    I usually go sans-makeup, but when I do apply, it’s just eyebrow pencil and mascara. You’re so right – mascara makes all the difference. I may have to try that one… do you find that it stays put all day, or does it tend to smudge eventually? I stopped putting my current brand on my lower lashes because it just smudges after a few hours and ends up on my face.

    As always you never fail to impress & make the hard things seem simple!! Thanks Erin!!

    How to strengthen your upper body arms, when you have a pinched nerve & every time I go for acupuncture or the chiropractor, if I start to try to work out the upper arms it triggers it all over again. Don’t want to have surgery, any suggestions to help?? I would imagine the 4 foot fall from last October didn’t help & aggravated the issue & moved the kidney stones thus having 2 lithotripsies to blast the stones! That was a bad fall. I’m the one who had a stroke & blind in 1 eye from it, Sandee who follows you faithfully & LadiBluJeans on instagram!!
