Drop Everything: You Can Actually Use a Bobby Pin to Get the Perfect Cat Eye

Every beauty junkie knows the all-too-real struggle of creating the perfect eyeliner wing. Even I, as a veteran in the cat eye department, agree that getting a perfect, even wing every time is quite near miraculous. This beauty vlogger, however, seemingly found the key. Meet BeautynMalia and her bobby pin.

So, it looks like she just paints the two tips of the bobby pin with a liquid eyeliner pen (or pot), then places it short side up onto the curvature of her upper lash line, leaving her with a stencil! Afterward, she just fills in the gaps and extends the flick outward a bit. In all honesty, I normally don't pay much attention to all these "beauty-hacks," but it looks like this one actually works! And, since every girl probably has a million bobby pins lying around anyway, anyone could give this technique a go. Just remember to be extra careful when using any kind of sharpish object around your eyes. Save the bleeding eyeliner for Halloween, collegiettes.

What would we do without beauty bloggers?
