You’ve been swooning over her style since her days on Laguna Beach.
How is it that she always looks so effortlessly chic and put together.
She’s your total style girl crush.
I’m talking about Lauren Conrad!
I’ve lost track of how many conversations I’ve had with my clients, girlfriends and biz besties, not just about Lauren Conrad’s style, but her stunning signature makeup look…the Cat Eye!
Part of the conversation usually goes something a little like this…
OMG! LC’s makeup always looks so gorgeous.
That winged liner is just EVERYTHING. I ssssoooo wish I knew how to do that!
Anytime I go near liquid liner I swear it ends up in place that it shouldn’t…don’t even ask me how.
Oh and don’t even get me started on trying to make both eyes look the same. LOL!
For the most part, I either ruin my makeup or end up with some weird, lopsided look that I try to cover with a strategic hairstyle!”
Does this sound familiar, lovely?
Let me start by saying that I totally sympathize!
I too have had my fair share of winged-liner meltdowns…typically in a panicked flurry, 5-minutes before I’m due to walk out the door for some super important event or meeting.
Well my gorgeous friend, today I’m spilling my ultimate winged eyeliner sparkly secrets AND…
How you can recreate Lauren Conrad’s signature look!
Here are just some of the reasons I seriously LOVE this look and why I know you will too:
- It’s simple, chic and timeless – yay!
- It’s super quick to create, especially once you get your liner technique down – double yay!
- It’s perfect for the busy gal that needs to go from office to cocktail party in a snap!
I LOVE that it only takes me roughly 7-minutes or less (on a normal day), to go from bare faced to boss lady, and ready to bounce out the door!
Here’s how you can bouncy out the door looking like you’ve had a visit from LC’s personal glam-squad..
You will need:
Choose Your Own Makeup Adventure!
Prefer to use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream instead of a foundation? Go for it.
Don’t have the time…or the patience to apply eyeshadow? Skip it.
Not a fan of lipstick? Swipe on a coat of lipstick or lip balm instead.
Want to pump the glam up? Apply some fun flirty lashes or just a few individual lashes.
That’s the great thing about makeup – there are no rules. Choose products that work for your skin type and tone, along with your lifestyle.

My secrets to LC’s signature look:
:: Map your wing – carefully sketch in your wing from the outer corner of your lash line, to the tail of your eyebrow – indicated by the pink line. The longer your wing, the more dramatic your catty liner will be.
I personally like to stop my wing at the socket line, for a soft and flirty day-to-day look.
