I really like the cat eyeliner look and use it almost every time I put on makeup. It reminds me a lot of how the Egyptians thousands of years ago would wear their eyeliner. Here’s a tutorial I made using some (not all) budget friendly beauty products. I hope you enjoy.
Products I Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadow in Yellow Gold
NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadow in Walnut
NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadow Black Pearl
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero
Elf Liquid Eyeliner in Black
The Color Workshop (cheap makeup brand at Walmart) Eyeliner in Gold
Wet n’ Wild Mega Liner in Indigo Blue
Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof Mascara in Very Black
Elf Eyelash Curler
First step is to prime your eyes. This helps your eyeshadow to stay on longer, prevents your eyelid oils from smudging your eyeshadow, and helps your makeup look more vibrant.
Next I put the gold eyeshadow onto just the middle of my lid. I did this so I can have a multi-dimensional look, almost like 3D.
After that I put a small amount of the gold liner on top of the yellow old eyeshadow to add a little glitz.
Then what I did was I took the brownish eyeshadow and applied it on the right side and left side of my eyelid without putting it directly on top of the yellow eyeshadow. I blended the two colors slightly so there wasn’t any harsh contrast. Remember you want to make this look multi-dimensional.
I blended the brown more and a little towards my brow bone.
I added the black eyeshadow to my crease building up the color slightly.
Next I took the black eyeshadow and with a brush I lined my lower lash line.
Then you’ll want to bring that eyeshadow up past your lid for that classic cat eye. It can be tricky to do but follow your lash line out and you should get it just right.
Next you take your eyeliner pencil and line the inside of your eyes both top and bottom.
I used just a little bit of black liquid eyeliner to the top lash line.
Next (and this was just for fun) I wanted some more color so I used the blue liquid liner on my bottom lash line.
Add mascara and you’re done!
