Creating the Glamorous Cat-Eye

The Glamorous ‘Old Hollywood’ Cat Eye

I am often asked “Am I too old to wear winged liner?” My short response is “NO!” You are never too old to wear makeup that makes you feel glamorous.  As a working makeup artist, especially one who is obsessed with creating vintage glam looks, I have applied winged style eye liner to many women from different walks of life.  For me, wearing winged liner is an absolute, a go-to,  the piece of ‘résistance.’

Stay Glamorous,
