Feline flicks with flair

Take your feline flick to the max for autumn with this bumped-up liner look. It needs a steady hand, but you can go as wild as you want when it comes to the shape. To get the look, start by drawing on your usual cat eye with Colour Precise Eyeliner, £5.99, then etch an exaggerated line through the crease that forms a wing with your first line. Finally, fill it in and applaud yourself on your masterpiece.

Cat eyes in colour

Bold eyeliner is where it’s at, and you can rock it in any colour you like. We’re really into a swipe of turquoise, violet or true blue on your lids. To get the look in seconds flat, use a liquid liner pen like Colour Precise Eyeliner in Blue, £5.99, and etch it in a thin line on your upper lids. Dreamy.

Copper smoky smudges

You don’t have to go graphic. A smoky smudge is just as autumn-ready, and copper hues are flattering on everyone – especially if there’s shimmer involved. The touch of radiance will brighten up your entire eye area, so reach for Magnif’Eyes Double-Ended Shadow & Liner in Queens of a Bronzed Age, £6.99, and line your lids with the darker end.
