♥ Intense Cat Liner & Dramatic Lashes

Intense Cat Liner & Dramatic Lashes

All the products I used are in a picture at the end of this post

For today's makeup look I am wearing an intense eye liner, a defined crease and a contoured and glowing face! This is definitely a going out look because I am wearing foundation, concealer and everything as well as a lot of eyeshadows & eyeliner.

To make this a day time look- skip the heavy base of foundation and concealer for a normal moisturiser or bb cream. Wear no eyeshadow or neutral shades as opposed to this sparkly heavy eyeshadow.

How to do the eyes?

  • Apply a neutral eyeshadow to your lid
  • Use a black eyeliner to draw a line on or slightly above your crease
  • Blend the black line out with a thing detailer brush
  • Apply brown shadow above your crease and bottom lash line
  • Mix NYC primer & highlighter (or just use a concealer) on your lid.
  • Apply a loose sparkly eyeshadow or pigment to your eye lid.
  • Using a liquid eye liner, line your eyes starting at the inner corner of your eye with a flick outside of the tear duct. Line all the way out to the wing and start to line your lower lash line (not your water line).
  • Wait a few minutes for the liquid liner to dry. Now with a pencil eyeliner, go over the liner on the bottom lash line making it more smudged and intense, line your waterline and tighline if you wish.
  • Use false lashes or your normal mascara and lash fibres like the Magnifibre Brush on Lashes

How to do the base?

  • Apply a primer to a clean and moisturised face, wait for it to get absorbed to your skin.
  • Using a foundation brush, apply your foundation all over your face (I blended some of my sparkly loose eyeshadow to my foundation for a glowing look)
  • Clean up and brighten your under eye using a concealer
  • Using a contouring shade, apply quite a lot on to a medium sized brush or a contouring brush and draw a "line" along the hollows of your cheeks- blend this out a lot to avoid a harsh line.
  • Contour the sides of your forehead
  • Use a highlighter on the apples of your cheeks

How to do the lips?

  • Start off with moisturised and non chapped lips
  • For an even neater effect, you can use a lip pencil, I didn't do this
  • Apply some concealer around your mouth and cupids bow
  • Apply highlighter to your cupids bow
  • Apply your lipstick using a thiner lip brush
  • I used Calvin Klein lipstick
