Beyoncé's Makeup Artist Has a $3 Cat-Eye Hack That Will Change Your Life


Beyoncé is a superhuman. So naturally we assume that while us mortals spend 15 minutes trial-and-error-ing cat eyes with lackluster results, she slashes on two 💯 feline flicks in one fell swoop. However, we now know that she has a game-changing hack for us to steal so that we, too, can achieve cat eyes worthy of her glorious, Funny-Face-inspired 2011 "Countdown" video.

In a new tutorial with Amazon's Style Code Live, Bey's makeup artist Sir John revealed a trick we can only assume that Bey's picked up from him over the years. "Everyone's like, 'How do I perfect my wing?'" he explains. "The answer is pointed cotton buds."

All you have to do is dampen the tapered Q-tip, then glide it along the flicks as needed to sharpen and smooth out the lines. The best part? A pack of 170 will only set you back $2.94.

But the wallet-friendly hack isn't the only *amazing* thing to come from John's how-to, as he also gave us a preview of L'Oréal's new Voluminous Liner Noir. FWIW, L'Oréal has always created my most favorite drugstore liquid eyeliners—ultra-fine-tipped pens, which dispense a smooth, highly-pigmented formula that doesn't skid on the skin.

Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my hands on their newest release, pointed cotton buds in tow.
