“The most popular look right now, and the one that all my clients want, is a super-thin line,” Ta says. “So thin it’s almost like it isn’t even there, but it still has the cat-eye effect.”
His signature thin flick can be seen here on Olivia Munn and in the majority of the slides ahead, and for good reason: It opens the eyes and brings attention upward. All you need to copy it at home is a skinny, angled brush with synthetic fibers — we like Smith Cosmetics’ 203 Micro Angled Liner Brush — and your favorite shadow, he says. For a more dramatic line, try Ta’s favorite gel: Tarte’s Tarteist Clay Paint Liner. “It’s my all-time favorite because it doesn’t dry out, it’s water-resistant, and it never creases,” he tells us.
