The cat-eye is a classic makeup look that everyone should have in their beauty arsenal. From Old Hollywood stars like Sophia Loren to modern beauties such as Bella Hadid, winged eyeliner has proved its timelessness. While a simple look, drawing on the flick can be deceptively (even intimidatingly) tricky. When done properly, it has an eye-opening effect that adds instant allure. The liner is a favorite of celebrity and editorial makeup artist Vincent Oquendo, who's executed killer cat-eyes on the likes of Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Lily Collins, and more. From the runways to the red carpet, the MUA swears by a layered eyeliner application technique that creates an extra bold effect that lasts all day.
