So how does she do it? First, Malia coated the top of the bobby pin with liquid eyeliner. Next, she pressed it again her eye where she wanted the wings to be, stamping it into the cat eye shape. Once her outline was complete, she lined the rest of her eye. She completed the look by filling in her cat eye outline and connecting it with the lines on her lash line.

The process is repeated on the other eye, and voila! The result is absolutely gorgeous, proving it’s one of the best makeup hacks we’ve ever seen!

We’re sure that once you’ve mastered this simple trick, you’ll be rockin’ the cat eye look whenever you head out with your squad.
