Hi girls! Today, I’m giving you tips on how to achieve the perfect cat eye! Personally, I love lining my eyes because a simple flick makes them look more defined and wide-awake—plus your makeup looks even more polished overall!
Creating a cat eye look may seem difficult in the beginning, but as you go along with these steps and practice, practice, practice it’ll be a breeze! Watch the video below.
Here are the products I used to create my cat eye and the rest of this easy-breezy beauty look:
THE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO THE CAT EYE
STEP 1: The star of this look is of course the eye liner. I’ve used Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink, P1,450. Load up your eyeliner brush and make sure you run the bristles on the side of the pot to get rid of excess product. Bobbi Brown’s formula is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way (so I definitely think it’s worth the splurge).
STEP 2: Line your eyes, staying as close to your lashline as you possibly can. Start in the middle of the eyelid and work your way outward, both ways.
STEP 3: Connect everything together with one even stroke.
STEP 4: To get that cat eye effect, simply flick your brush upward, starting from the outer corner of one eye. Repeat this step on the opposite eye.
STEP 5: Fill in any sparse areas and you’re good to go!
I didn’t bother putting on eyeshadow for this look because the liner itself is already such a statement!
To open up my eyes, I’ve used a few coats of Max Factor’s 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume Mascara in Black, P655.
To add color to my cheeks, I’ve dusted on L.A. Colors’ Mineral Blush in Sheer Bliss, P249, which is a warm golden coral with just a slight hint of shimmer.
Last but not the least, I topped the look with a soft, glossy lip that I’ve been rocking all summer! I’m using Buxom’s Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Debbie, P1,060, which I also wore in my no-makeup makeup tutorial.
And that’s all there is to it! Hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial, and see you next time!
