Before you start on your eyes, you will want a flawless look around the eyes. As you focus on the eyes, you will want to make sure dark circles and creases are covered well with a concealer. Then use a good eye primer, apply to the upper eyelids all the way up to the brow line and wait to dry. This will keep the chosen shades on for longer and will make your colors look sharper and stronger. Choose an eye shadow shade that is a little bit lighter than the skin tone of your eyelid and using a large eye shadow brush, lightly dust all over your eyelid.

To create the cat’s eye smoky look

The key to cat eye makeup is good blending. Make sure you blend properly to create a beautiful, seductive look. Another tip is to make sure your eyebrows have been plucked or threaded.

Highlight under the eyebrow with a good base color. Shimmer natural colors are a good contrast. Apply the darker eye-shadow on the eyelid and work up towards the eye crease. Do not go over the crease as this could make the eye look blotchy. When the both colors have been applied, use a blending brush and blend up towards the eye crease. Next step is to blend along crease then start to blend into the base color. This part is important as this is how the shaded look will appear.

Apply your liquid eyeliner along the top eye lid and draw up towards the eyebrow at the edge. For the bottom eyelid applies a black pencil, you then use a blender and blend the color along the bottom of the eye. To finish coat with a black lash enhancer, repeat until you’re happy with your eyelash length.

Apply a highlight eye shadow under the eyebrow on your brow line, use a blending eyebrow brush and blend into the eye. Start from the inside and blend towards the outside.

Then apply an eye shadow that’s two shades darker than your skin tone along the eyelid crease. Use your eye shadow blending brush and blend in with the highlight contrast. Apply the black line, working from the inner corner draw across the top eyelid as close as possible to the eyelashes. Stop when you get to the outer corner. Once this is achieved draw a line up towards the eyebrow edge. You can determine when to stop the line, 3mm is a good length. Also, apply the dark liner across the bottom eyelid to highlight the full eye. Then finish with eye lash enhancer that creates length and volume.

To finish both looks off brush your eyebrow to create a nice shape and coat with a brow pencil that is a shade that emphasizes you natural eyebrows. This will help create beautifully shaped eyebrow to finish of the sultry look.
