I had a little Meow-Mix this morning, felt a lil “rawr” and decided to cave in and do a smokey cat-eye look for you guys. This look is extremely simple, consisting of just two colors, and can be substituted with anything you have! I picked up Lithe pigment (now sold out) from the Fabulous Felines collection by MAC last week and wanted to use it, so here we go…
Same look but with red lips!
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencil in Blackbean
- NYX Black eyeshadow
- MAC Lithe pigment
- Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero
- Lancome Hypnose mascara
- MAC Dark MSF all over face
- Benefit Boi-ing concealer under eyes
- Facefront Fully Baked Bronzer to contour
- Rock & Republic Immoral blush
*moisturize with your favorite balm, I used Rosebud Salve
- NYX Nutmeg lip liner
- Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Bananas!
and for the red lips…
- NYX Deep Red lipliner
- Chanel Paris lipstick
Scotch tape is sticky, so place it on the back of your hand to remove some of the stickiness before you put it in the corner of your eye. You don’t want to put it right on your eye because it will pull your skin too much when you go to remove it. Prime both lids with UDPP, then used a tiny bit of Blackbean on the lower lid just to give it a darker base. Blend that out with your finger and take a flat eyeshadow brush and apply the black eyeshadow (any brand will do). Place the eyeshadow just on the shape of your lid, stop where you feel your crease. Blend the black out a bit with a blending brush, I used the MAC 217. Take a clean blending brush and apply a tiny bit of the Lithe pigment into the crease and softly blend out to diffuse the black a bit. Don’t bring the crease color onto the lid (although tiny bits of it will naturally fall down). If you do get too much of the crease color on the lid, just go back with the black and reapply. Line your upper and lower water-line with a black pencil of your choice. Take a bit of the black eyeshadow on a pencil brush, I used the MAC 219 and smoke out your lower lash-line. Apply your mascara, remove your tape and you’re done with the eyes.
Easy look, kinda hooker’ish but I’m okay with that. I might submit one of those pics to Temptalia’s Feline Challenge, but I haven’t made up my mind yet. Anyway, I gotta get ready for work tomorrow so I’ll see you guys around! Hope everyone had a safe and chill Labor Day weekend (I know I did lol). If you need dupe suggestions, ask below
