When Janelle Monae hits the stage during her Electric Lady summer tour in Europe, the "Tightrope" singer uses tips from her go-to makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff to create her performance look of a cat eye and bold lip combo.

Sheriff, who has worked with Queen Latifah, tells Us Weekly that the secret to the perfect cat eye is all about balance.
