Cat Eye Makeup Tutorial

A smoldering cat eye makeup will certainly bring some drama to an ordinary day and make you look more mysterious. The liner will improve and enhance your natural eye shape, especially if you have downturned eyes. By leaving the bottom lash line untouched, your cat eyes will get all the attention. This tutorial will teach you how to add intensity and edge for a modern makeup. In order to achieve an instant lift, follow these easy steps:

Step 1- Create a base

Apply your regular foundation and make sure you add some on your eyelids. Do your typical smoky eye shadow look, but fit it with the cat eye makeup. If you have dark brown eyes and darker skin, choose a black eye shadow. Natural light brown and dark green are perfect for green eyes, while purples and browns highlight hazel eyes. If you are blending two colors, start with the lightest shade as a base and apply medium matte shadow from the lash line to the crease. The color must be deeper near the corner of your eye and fade out.

Step 2 – Choose a liner

If you try to draw a line across your lids with a dried up eyeliner, you will probably mess it up. Choose a liner that will easily glide over your lash line. The best choice is a liquid formula, and it is also the thickest. You can also get an extra creamy pencil or an angled brush and a cream liner, if you have a steady hand and good makeup skills.

Step 3 – Choose a shape

In order to figure out a shape for your cat eye makeup, follow the natural curve of your eyes. Start by drawing a test line, and if you have downturned eyes, fake it a little: instead of following the curve of your top lid, draw an extension of your bottom lid upwards.

Step 4 – Apply your liner

Start with the pencil or brush resting on your lashes in the inner corner and draw it across, making the line thicker as you go. Once you reach the end of your lashes, stop and draw the tail in the opposite direction, starting from the tip. Connect the two lines and if you want, add more layers to create a mysterious cat eye makeup. If you look into the mirror with your eyes open, you will easily draw even lines on both sides. Just remember that it is easier to add more eyeliner than to remove it. However, if you need to erase a part, dip a Q-tip in makeup remover and gently rub it on your skin.

Step 5 – Apply mascara

This is the final touch to your bold cat eye makeup. Exaggerate it with some mascara, and don’t be afraid to add a few extra coats. You can even use a full strip of false lashed if you are getting ready for a party. If you are looking for a daytime makeup, one coat will be enough.
