kitten eye & overalls

So I know the whole overalls trend has come and pretty much gone BUT these are awesome so yolo, AMIRITE? I never go into the trend before because no one made a skinny jean version and I felt like baggy overalls were dumpy pre-school vibes. Violá! Madewell (of course) came up with the cool girl alternative. Dress up your overalls with a low bun and kitten eye (click through for makeup artists tips!!)  Layer a cozy cardigan over a cropped tank and pair with ankle booties and ruffle edged ankle socks to pull the look together. Dare I say this look is even date-night appropriate? Yup. #overallsFTW

Q: Tricks for doing a mini flick aka kitten eye? 
A: The kitten eye is my new favorite cat eye interpretation. The key is lining the upper water line (or tightlining) before starting the flick.

Q: Gel liner vs liquid pen. What do you prefer to use?
A: As a makeup artist I don't use a liner pen in my kit, but in my personal makeup bag I'm all about it. There's pros and cons to both, it's just about finding what works for you. 

Q: I have almond shaped eyes so when I try to do this on myself I either look like Cleopatra or super squinty. Is there a trick for knowing what angle to draw the line?? 
A: Always always always draw the flick with your eye open. That way you're not surprised when you open your eye and it's making your eyes looks droopy or squinty
