How To Do The Perfect Cat Eye Make-up In Five Minutes Flat

Kitty flicks, cat eye makeup or feline ticks, whatever you call your eyeliner strokes they sure are hot right now, so getting this look down pat is a matter of urgency. They might be the finishing touch to the purrfect (we couldn't resist) statement peepers but they're deceptively hard to master. You'll need a steady hand, well-behaved eyelids and a lot of mouth open action to concentrate. Here's how to get Taylor Swift worthy feline flicks with zero hassle. Let the liner training begin.

For years there's one beauty trick that's been pretty invincible when it comes to outlasting the trends, we're talking about feline flicks. Winged eyeliner can do wonders for bringing tired eyes back to life and opening up your features.

You don't have to be blessed with big round peepers to make cat eye flicks work for you, drawlng your eyeliner into the outer corners of your eyes will instantly elongate your features, creating that gorgeous feline effect.

No two eye shapes are the same and there's plenty of scope to tailor the look for your individual style. Whether you want to go thick and fierce or thin and flawless, there's no boundaries when it comes to the cute kitten flicks.

Thanks to Charlotte Tilbury it's a signature look that's become synonymous with catwalk royalty Kate Moss, but one that can be translated for day to day wear as well.

Freshen up your daytime base by gliding your eyeliner straight over the top or go smoked out and sultry all over with taupe eyeshadow and lashings of mascara.

Nothing creates instant drama quite like the cat eye flick - you only have to look to stars like Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry to see this look is going nowhere fast.

For all you crazy cats out there here's how to get A-list approved eyeliner wings in five minutes flat:
