Hi everyone I'm Gabija, and this is Nala, and today we're here to show you one of my favorite looks. How to create the beautiful cat-eye, and what's awesome about this look is that you only need three products. So, let's get into it!

So, the first thing that we're going to do is we're going to tight line, and that's when you use a pencil eyeliner, and try to get in really close to your eye, and really get it around those edges, and fill in any gaps that you might have between your eyelashes. So, I really recommend doing this first so that you don't have to touch the eyeliner afterward. And this is really great especially if you have, you're like me, and you have those gaps in between your upper lash line. So, for this, we're going to tight line the upper waterline and the lower waterline. So, for this I am using the Covergirl Ink It, in color 230, and this is a retractable pencil eyeliner. So, what we're going to do is we're going to pull up on our eyelid, and try and tight line in between those lashes. And now we're going to tight line the bottom lashes. Be sure that you hit that inner corner and cannot leave any gaps. And I like to kind of have it taper off in the middle, so that way kind of creates this effect that all the attention is drawn to this corner of the eye.

Now the next part is, we're going to create our top line. And so for this, you can either use a cream liner or a liquid liner. A cream liner is great if you kind of want to blur it out and soften that line, but if you want to have something that's more exact a little bit more sharp then I would recommend using a liquid liner. Which is what I'm going to use today. And so for this, I'm using the Covergirl Get In Line liquid liner, and this is in the color 335, and this is a dark dark brown. And I like this because it's a little bit softer than just jet black, and I kind of like that for my eye shape. So, for this, I'm going to start by creating the wing and shape the wing where I want it to be. And once you have that shape, you can fill it in. So, my recommendation for this to see if you've got a good line would be to close your eye and see what the shape of it looks like. So, you see how it looks pretty straight, then that's the line that I'm happy with.

And now, I'm going to line the rest of my eye. And I work from the outside all the way in, and as I go to the inner corner of my eye, I like to make the line thinner. So, you see how the line here is much thinner and it becomes bigger as it hits the other corner. 

And this is what it looks like when you complete the other eye. I absolutely love this liquid liner, it's actually my personal go-to. It's very easy to apply, it's very precise, the felt tip is great, and I love how fast it dries.

And now the last part that we're going to do for this very simple cat eye is to use mascara. And for this, I am using the Great Lash by Maybelline, in the color dark brown. Now again, I love using dark brown instead of black because it kind of softens the look. So, for this, what you should do is that you should start at the root of your lashes and wiggle as you brush up. Now, don't forget to hit the bottom lashes as well.

And this is the final look! Remember, you can get a beautiful simple look using only three products, and you can get all three of these products at Walgreens. And this whole look was created for under $25. Thank you so much for watching, I hope you enjoyed this video, and I hope to see you next time!
