At a very young age, I began sneaking into my mom’s makeup drawer and playing with every lipstick, blush and eye shadow I could get my hands on. But the older I get, the less makeup I wear. When I wake up in the morning, my routine consists of tinted moisturizer, bronzer, blush, mascara and eyeliner.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t occasionally like to have a little fun.
For instance, I love copying Lauren Conrad‘s super-subtle, way-pretty cat eye, which she’s worn at a ton of red carpet appearances. Yeah, it’s hard to master, and liquid eyeliner can be a real pain. But I made it work by watching a bunch of makeup video tutorials on the web. Below are my favorites—including one from Lauren herself. They’ve allowed me to get that much closer to cat eye perfection!

PS: Stila makes the best liquid eyeliner for a cat eye. It’s shaped like a pen and so easy to use!
