Makeup artist Daniel Chinchilla has mastered the cat-eye, especially after touring with Ariana Grande. While demonstrating on Vanessa Grimaldi, he applied the creamy eyeliner from the end of the eyebrow to edge of the iris of the eyeball, "Some times if you go all way, you can close off the eye," he said. For those that aren't eyeliner pros, "I always tell people to start with brown, because black can be overwhelming...and it's easier to mess up with," he recommended.
