Have you ever wondered how stars like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn rocked those stellar cat-eye looks? Even musicians like Madonna and Gwen Stefani embraced the cat eye during their careers. Throughout the years, cat eyes have been the ultimate beauty trend. To this day, it remains one of the most timeless, sultry makeup looks that a woman can create.

While it may seem difficult to create this look on your own, it's actually quite simple. With just three easy steps, you, too, could grace the screen with this flawless, high-drama look...the cell phone screen, that is.

Tip #1: Wing it, baby.

Learning how to wing out your top liner is key to establishing the base of the cat eye. Start by drawing on your eyeliner from the middle of your eye towards the outer V. Once you reach the end of your eye, extend the line up at a 135-degree angle (toward the outer tip of your eyebrow). By making your top liner as straight as possible, you're well on your way to perfecting the cat eye.

Tip #2: Change your lash routine.

Your eyelashes make all the difference when it comes to creating the perfect cat eye. You can accomplish the perfect cat-eye lashes with one of two ways:

  • Apply a heavy coat of mascara on your eyelashes, concentrating more on the outer lashes for maximum effect.
  • Apply false lashes a little further away from the inner corner of your eye, so that your eyelashes look longer than they actually are.

Tip #3: Keep blending, honey.

For the ladies who want to take it a step further and really enhance their cat eyes, try placing all your darkest eye shadows in the outer V of your eye. The dark shadows will open up the eyes and make them look bigger. Don't forget to blend the edges of the shadows, so you don't have any harsh lines.
