I came across this stunning look on Pinterest and decided to recreate it myself! Now, please keep in mind that their photo is airbrushed to perfection and taken with a professional camera - where mine was just taken with my iPhone with no airbrushing :P
This is the Pinterest photo...
Here is the look step-by-step:
1. As always, start with a clean primed eye lid.
2. Apply a creamy off-white shadow all over the lid and up into the crease.
3. Take a very light nude and blend it into the crease to soften the off-white shadow and give the eye depth.
4. Apply a thin liquid line along the lash line, keeping it straight and thin.
5. Extend a wing out, as if you were extending the lower lash line.
6. Create a mirrored effect of the lower wing and reverse it, follow the natural lines of the crease to help guide you. Ideally you want to be just above where you lid creases and just on the socket bone of your eye.
7. Fill in any gaps, creating a seamless hollow wing shape.
8. Pick some black shadow up on a very small brush. I used a lip brush. The location of where you first put the brush down is where you will have the most product deposited. Put the point of the lip brush right in the outer corner of the wing. Slowly, with tiny movements blend that black shadow down, filling out the wing.
Give it a try! It is seriously so much easier then it looks. Especially if you have already mastered my technique of applying liquid liner, which can be found here and here. You can also get creative with this look and instead of using black use a neon shadow to do your faded shadow work inside the wing. Or, use a bright liquid liner and fill with white, the possibilities are endless!

I think this may be my new favourite way to do a cat eye look! I'm attending a bachelorette party this weekend and I just may have to rock this look then! As always, contact me for any questions about this look or any other look - as well as to book me for your next special event!
