After staring at Nicki Minaj's bold and dramatic cat eye for what seemed hours, I have finally taken it upon myself to try the trend out. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a beauty writer and a makeup-obsessed junkie, so this isn't my first time at the rodeo by any means. The difference between my signature cat eye and Ms. Minaj's is that I typically go for subtle and natural and well, Nicki likes to go "Anaconda" long.

I tapped my all time favorite beauty guru on Youtube, ItsMyRayeRaye to get the 411 on how to get a dramatic cat eye à la Nicki Minaj. Watch the video below to see her cat eye methods.



Now who's up for the challenge. I am! Here's what I've learned...

First things first, this is me, Chelsey. Hey! I'm sitting in my room eyeliner free ready to do this. I'm positive and optimistic so far.

Getting up close and personal with me, huh? OK, I'm totally ready to start this process. Let's go!

There's hope in my eyes. I am studying my eyeliner and becoming one with it. I can totally do this.

Optimism is fading here and there's borderline panic approaching. If only I had an eyeliner pen like ItsMyRayeRaye, this whole process would be a lot easier. Instead, I am using Sephora's Long Lasting 12 HR Wear Eye Liner, which I later learn is pretty great.

Now those are three imperfect, non-strategically placed dots. All I have to do is connect them and fill in. Simple enough right?

Concentration. Concentration.

OMG, is that a cat eye?!
