A soft cat eye with eyeshadow tutorial
links + loves
I like routine, but MAN I was getting bored with my eye makeup routine recently. Even using different shades of eyeshadow wasn’t cutting it. So I tried something new, fairly skeptical about what I would think of the end result, but it’s now the only way I’ve done my eyes for the past few weeks! I should probably alternate between this look and my classic look, so I don’t get overly bored of this soft cat eye, but for now it’s giving me life so I’m going to stick with it!
The goal was a soft, understated cat eye for every day. I wanted to wing my eyes out a bit, especially since I just got another lash lift and my eye lashes were already flicking up and out. I filmed a short little tutorial for you to show you how I do it! I used Revlon creme eyeshadow in Espresso all over the lid, this brush to create the cat eye, and Urban Decay’s Secret Service eyeshadow for the cat eye. For extra definition, I pressed this cream eyeshadow right along my lash line with a brush like this!
You can play around with how far you pull the cat eye out, and how high the point is angled depending on your eye shape and preferences. And I love that using just a dark eyeshadow is all you need to do – no messing with liquid liner and having to redo an inky cat eye flick over and over and over until it matches.
What do you change when you get into a makeup rut? Your eyes? Lipstick? I’d love to hear!
