As Teen Vogue reports, Lily’s amazing eyeliner might look like a regular old cat eye from a distance, but up close you can see that the outline of the cat eye isn’t filled in. It’s a negative space eyeliner look that’s innovative, fresh, and totally enviable.

To get Lily’s look, just (carefully and using your finest-tipped eyeliner) draw the outline of a winged tip, but don’t fill it in. It’s actually easier (in some ways — be careful not to smudge) than a regular cat eye.
