Today for Makeup Wars we’re trying something different. We’ll all be tackling the new Too Faced Cat Eyes palette, creating looks and tutorials!
I decided to create a pretty quick and easy look using the palette. Just because it has the darker colors and is named Cat Eyes, doesn’t mean you need to create such a dramatic look. I did this quickly one morning before spending the day with my family.
I started with a pre-prepped eye area. I prepped with concealer and then Shadow Insurance, which makes everything stay put all day long!
I used a medium fluff brush to spread Meow all over my lid and up to my brow bone.
Next I used a slightly smaller fluff to apply a light wash of Pussy Cat on to my lid up to (but not into or over) my crease. Because it was over Meow you only get a hint of lilac, alone it is more vibrant.
Next I grabbed my black Perfect Eyes Eyeliner and lined my eyes in the lashes. I know it doesn’t look remotely perfect (that’s why I’m giving you 2 pics of it, look! It’s messy!) The point really was to get the liner down into the base of my lashes, something that is hard to do with wet shadow. The line is a bit thicker at the outer corner than the inner corner.
Next, using a wet brush (a stiff and angled eye liner brush for my upper lash line, a small detail brush for the lower 1/2 lash line), I grabbed a little of Jungle Love and a bit of Panther. Along the top line I traced over the eyeliner, making things more even. The lower lash line, I just placed a bit of the color at the lash line, though I used a bit too much water (see how it kind of smudges down?) and I had to clean it up a little with a q-tip. After the shadow was on the lower lash line I applied more of the black eye liner into the water line.
