1. Select the right eyelash curler
Selecting the right eyelash curler is important as it will give a symmetric look. Go for a shallow arc and wider opening eyelash curler, this will help you reach every last lash and also avoid the eyelid to clamp. Curling your lash is important as it gives a different dimension to your lashes and in this context, it will give your eyes a smooth and voluminous appearance. Don't forget to curl your lower lash.
2. Wing is the key
Cat eye looks will give a stunning look to your almond eyes. Go for it! Make sure you get the wing right, it shouldn't be too thick or too thin. It should be just perfect. If you are new in this, then ensure that you make dotted lines so that you don't mess up the wing. This will add some drama to your eyes and make it look elegant. You can try out the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line for a perfect cat eye look.
3. Experiment with eyeliner
Almond eyes can rock the smokey eye look like no one else can. To give a magnum look to your eyes apply the Lakmé Absolute Gel Addict only to the centre of your lower lid and blend it outward. Don't make a solid line all the way to the outer edges. This will emphasize on the widest part of your eyes and elegantly define them. You can even go for different shades. You can also just define the inner corners than the middle or the outer corners. Just make sure to have a steady hand against something before you use the eyeliner.
