Makeup Trend / Smokey Cat Eye

We are loving this step by step tutorial by Bazaar Magazine on how to re-create the smokey cat eye, check it out.

The Inspiration:
January Jones at the 2012 Emmy Awards

With the season of festivities about to kick off, it’s time to give your makeup a kick as well. The new smoky cat eye makes a statement all on its own, as January Jones proves, and is “both pretty and sexy,” says makeup pro Bobbi Brown. Here, Brown gives us five steps for creating the smudged-and-smoldering effect. Just add a swipe of soft lipstick to finish off the look. 

Step 1:
Apply a white shadow on the entire lid as base, followed by a medium smoky color along the lower lash and on the center of the lid, blending from the lash line to the crease. Layer on more or less shadow to change the intensity to your liking and experiment with shades like gray and navy, if you want a break from black.

Step 2:
Line the top and bottom lash lines using a gel eyeliner or a kohl cake liner that won’t smudge or flake. Apply in smooth strokes, gently extending the line slightly beyond the outer corners of the eyes in an upward sweeping point for a soft cat eye. Make sure to line as close to your lashes as possible for a sleek look.

Step 3:
Smudge the point between the liner and the shadow using an eyeliner brush, blurring the shadow past the outer corners of the eye to the point just below your brows.

Dust a bit of the white shadow along the lower lash lines to create some sparkle and contrast.
