Michelle Obama Used This Editor-Favorite Eyeliner for a Graphic Cat Eye

When it comes to beauty products, I'm pretty picky about where I'll take recommendations (I am a beauty editor, after all). There's one hard and fast rule I follow, though: If a product is good enough for former First Lady Michelle Obama, it's certainly good enough for me. Sorry, it's just the rule!

It's a happy coincidence that at a recent appearance for The Light We Carry Book Tour, Obama turned to a beauty editor favorite for her makeup look. The product in question was from Beauty Pie, a high-performance, great-value makeup brand that sources ingredients and products from some of the world's leading labs. Editors love reaching for Beauty Pie products since it's pretty well-known that the brand's offerings are just as good (if not better) than many more expensive options on the market.

For her book-tour appearance, Obama's makeup artist Carl Ray used Beauty Pie's Deluxe Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Black Cat and their Wondercolour Longwear Cream Shadow Stick in Copperini to create a graphic cat eye that I simply can't stop thinking about. We're used to seeing Obama in more neutral looks, so seeing her get to play around a bit (with a phenomenal topknot and leather suiting to match) is a welcome change.
