The classic eyeliner flick is one make-up look that everybody wants to master. It’s shorthand for sassy and sexy, and it’s far easier than you might imagine.
To find out exactly how to pull off the perfect feline flick, we were paying close attention to make-up artist Lyndsey Harrison when she created a whole Sixties-themed look around it for Jess Plummer.
As well as being a top celebrity make-up artist, Lyndsey runs her own training academy, so she's the perfect person to break it all down for us.
Check out our exclusive video tutorial to watch Lyndsey in action with Jess, and follow her step-by-step guide to winging it.
1. Firstly, you need the right tools for the job, and that starts with the Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Liner in Jess’s OK! Beauty Edit box.
The liner alone is worth £16, but you can can pick up the entire box, with five more of Jess's beauty faves, from under £11 here. Just add the code LASTCHANCE at the checkout.
“The Eyeko black liquid pen glides on easily, making the winged liner easy,” explains Lyndsay. “Start as close to the lashes as possible to avoid any gaps. Take fine stokes to start with and draw the liner onto the lid, working from the outside in.”

2. “Then onto the flick. My top tip is to commit in one stroke to keep the winged sharp at the tip. If you do make a mistake, it’s not a disaster. Just dip a cotton bud in eye make-up remover and clean up.”
3. Next you need plenty of mascara. “This look requires big lashes,” says Lyndsey. “Use a buildable mascara where you can give the lashes 2 to 3 coats.”
4. Apply white eyeliner to the waterline. “This really makes the liner pop! It also gives it that 70s vibe. Two coats is my tip for this.”
5. Amp up the look with false lashes. “When applying lashes, rest the lash on your eye and check it fits. If you need to trim it, always cut the band from the outer edge of the false lash strip.”

“Apply the glue to the band and wait 10-15 seconds for it to go tacky. Then use tweezers to apply, keeping the false lashes as close to the lash line as possible. Place the middle of the lashes into position first, followed by the inner and outer edge.”
6. Intensity with eyeshadow. “With a small detail brush, apply a rich black/brown eyeshadow, to the lower lashes. Take it all the way out to meet the flick to intensify the look.”
7. As final step, touch up where needed. “I use a small flat brush and clean any edges with concealer to keep the flick looking really defined,” says Lyndsey.
And voila – the perfect cat’s eye flick is yours.
