The Vamp Stamp Is Here to Help You Nail the Cat Eye

Some people use tape, others create a triangle and fill it in like a little diagram. The cat-eye struggles are really, really real. Well, the Vamp Stamp is now here to help you get a clean, even line on both eyes, at that perfect angle that’s so hard to do perfectly when you’re not a makeup artist. Well, the Vamp Stamp isn’t here yet, but based on some Instagram stalking we’ve done, we’re really excited to try it. The tool is literally a stamp that helps you create a perfectly even cat eye every time. If this little beauty tool does what it says it does (and it seems like that’s the case so far), it’s going to be a game changer.

We haven’t tried it out yet, but we’re banking on this being the kind of tool we can’t believe we’ve lived without. That’s because it’s the brainchild of Veronica Lorenz, co-creator of the Beautyblender Original makeup sponge.

And we know how life-changing that sponge is. A spokesperson for the Vamp Stamp tells us that Lorenz’s inspiration for the tool wasn’t just her signature winged eyeliner but really the fact that she was diagnosed with a benign tumor on her spinal cord and lost partial use of her hands. She created a product that would allow her to continue working as a TV and film makeup artist. With the launch of this tool, people with physical handicaps can easily get that crisp cat-eye look much easier.

All you have to do is dip the stamp into an eyeliner pot (a cream one would work best). Then you line it up to the outer corner of your eye and choose what angle you want your cat eye to be. Some people like a subtle cat eye and others want that supersharp angle–it’s up to you. Then you just stamp. It really looks that easy. See for yourself:
