Cat Eye Makeup Tutorial, Part I

Recently, the nine looks below were posted on the QC Facebook page. Everyone seemed to absolutely love look #5 so I decided to recreate it for you! As the lower lashes aren’t quite visible in the photo, I decided to create what I think works well with this look. Stay tuned to The Blog, because tomorrow I’m going to post a cat eye makeup tutorial for another one of the popular looks below.

Nine gorgeous cat eye looks

Here’s my version of the look, step-by-step. Follow along with me!

Nine steps to a classic cat eye

Step 1 – Start with some creamy neutrals as your base. Use cream or white on the lid and brow to highlight, and a soft pink or brown in the crease.

Step 2 – Apply a liquid liner across the lid at your desired thickness.

Step 3 – Create an extension of your lower lash line into the beginnings of your winged liner.

Step 4 – Connect the tip of the wing to the top of the line you have created on your upper lash line.

Step 5 – Fill in the gap and apply mascara and false lashes.

Step 6 – Apply a white liner on the lower water line. Be sure to avoid smudging it onto your lashes as we want to apply a clean line along them afterwards.

Step 7 – Use a flat, thin liner brush to apply a brown eyeshadow along the root of the lower lash line. This will give the illusion of bigger eyes!

Step 8 – Apply a light coat of mascara along the lower lashes, keeping it clump free and clean-looking.

Step 9 – Apply a red lip and away you go! This is a great look for this time of year, whether it be for a Christmas party or a night out with the girls!

Here’s a closer look at this fabulous cat eye/red lip duo:
