bold cat eyeI can’t tell you how glad I am that the only make up technique I know (and can apply on myself) is now the biggest beauty trend of the season: the cat eye. To your surprise, it’s not as hard as the common opinion, especially with gel eyeliners or thick brushes. But since I have oily skin + eyelids, there is only one (yeah you read that right, only 1) eyeliner in the world that stays on my face all day: Dior Style liquid eyeliner, which to my luck – of course – is really liquid and comes with the thinnest paint  brush. I can say that I pretty much mastered it over the years, however I can’t say that it’s the best option for beginners.

For my night time make up, I prefer MAC gel eyeliner applied with a seperate angled brush (to give it a more panda eye effect) and use a black eye shadow on top of it to soften the look into a smoky eye.

I personally never tried different styles of cat eye (under cat eye, cleopatra, neon colors etc) nor seen anyone in real life who tried them, but I totally encourage anybody who can pull the look off. Up for the challenge?

  1. I love experimenting with a cat eye look. I’ll do the basic black cat eye, and then play with patterns that extend around it – dots, or swirls. Or I’ll do the bottom of my eye in a dark shimmery green. You’ve shown a great variety of cat eye styles. I can’t wait to imitate some and see what I like best.

  2. To tell you the truth girl, we have the same thing in mind! It’s the only thing I know to put in my eye, i don’t even know how to use an eye shadow!

  3. I’m a little afraid of the cat eye (such a #makeuprookie) but every time I do experiment with it a little I get tons of compliments! Haha they might just be being nice but I’m kind of tempted to try out a few of the looks posted here now. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I love the cat eye look. I’m still working on getting it perfect, but I’ll get there eventually. I love the makeup on Cara Delevingne. That’s fabulous!
