I'm pretty good at applying my makeup, but I still have problems achieving that perfect, dramatic "V" shape at the outer corner of my eyes--giving that sultry, cat-eye evening look. I think I need help in the way of a brush that aids me to make this shape successfully.

Can anyone offer any suggestions about what brush to use to help with this look? (So far I'm considering the Laura Mercier Eye Corner Color Brush, or the LM Angled Eye Color Brush...)

Thank you for your help!! :yes:

I really cannot seem to get the outer V either. I sometimes wonder if it is the shape of my eye, but I realize it is me and my application skills in this area :sad:

Same here, Beenie, ITA! I've watched people do it effortlessly on youtube, and it looks simple enough, but I'm rarely satisfied with the results when I try.

^^ exactly. And it DOES look easy but it never turns out right. My eyes are pretty big and very round, what about yours?

My eyes are dark brown in color, round and not too big or too small. I'm wondering if the "V" look is easier to achieve if a person has almond shaped eyes? Hmmm....

Mac #226!!! But good luck finding one, they're LE. I snagged one a few years ago and love it! It does all the work for me.

I think that the mac 226 is unobtainable now. I looked and looked, but could never find one. I always seem to miss out on these LE items!

The LM Corner Eye Color Brush got great reviews on Makeupalley, so I'm thinking of ordering that one and an angled eye shadow brush (not sure which one yet tho).

I was thinking the same about the almond shaped eyes. That 226 brush makes me SO jealous! I have called all the MAC stores I know of AND stalked CCO for a long time for that brush.

OK, one more question on this subject...

Can anyone recommend a video that shows an angled eye shadow brush (being used for a "V" shape) in action? I'm looking on youtube, but can't find anything.

I love it! It takes all the skill out of smokey eyes! I also have almondish shaped eyes too. Just keep watching Mac's collection releases, they'll drop it with a collection soon enough. The way they sell, I might as well buy a few and hold on to them for the drought.
