Perfect An Eye-Catching Feline Flick Like Lady Gaga

If there’s one season that screams “liberating,” it’s certainly summer. As the blaring sun highlights glistening skin and barely-there bikinis, the late nights welcome vibrant couture and bold makeup. The celebrity rocking this ensemble? Lady Gaga, of course. Only a feline flick so flawless could catch our attention, and the 35-year-old musician showed hers with a recent Instagram selfie. 

A fabulous flick does two things: lift and define. Drawn toward the upper corner of her brow tip, Gaga’s winged liner elongates her eyes while lifting her complexion. Meanwhile, the gentle smudge creates a dark frame that defines her light green eyes. Altogether, the eye makeup draws out a mischievous yet chic look—perfect for a night out frolicking in the city.

To emulate the bold feline flick, you can either draw a precise line for a daring look or a softly smudged wing (like Gaga) for a more mystifying effect. If you prefer the latter option, opt for a gel eyeliner that sets once smeared, such as the Satin Kajal Liner from Victoria Beckham Beauty.

Need step-by-step instructions? Makeup artist Celia Burton explained how to achieve a classic liner look: “Use a liquid liner to mark out with a dot or dash where you want the ‘flick’ to finish,” Burton told British Vogue. “Then, tip your head back and drag the liner across the eye from the inner corner, staying as close to the lash line as possible.” Once that’s done, you can either build on top with more liner or blend it out until it suits your eyes.
