Ariana Grande’s signature beauty look always involves two things: a tight, high ponytail and black winged liner. Hair stylist Chris Appleton recently shared how to recreate her hair and now her makeup artist Ashley K Holm is letting people in on exactly how she nails the cateye every time.
“I’m constantly switching up the brands and products I use, but right now I’m loving Smashbox Jetset Waterproof Eyeliner and Nudestix Rock N’ Roller Eyeliner Ink,” Holm, also a go-to of Kim and Khloé Kardashian, said in a recent interview with Refinery29.
The Nudestix liner is particularly interesting because it comes with a mini “pizza cutter”-like applicator, which looks exactly what it sounds like. The rolling motion of it, as opposed to a felt tip or pen tip, promises precise straight lines. Please refer to the flawless wings in this photo of Ariana wearing the Rock N’ Roller Eyeliner:
And here’s the roller in action:
As for when she’s not using the roller liner, Holm suggests using an angled brush and making sure, “the wing is angled upward towards the tail end of your eyebrows to lift the eyes up.”
