One of the most persistent questions I get on a daily basis is "how do I create a cat-eye"?
The simple answer is that there are as many ways to create a "cat-eye" as there are stars in the sky. First, there are different types of cat-eye shapes. They range from the clean and narrow, late 50's-early 60's era width you may be familiar with if you've watched a lot of MadMen, (in which the liner remains very subtle and close to the lid without extending out almost at all) to ferociously thick, mod styles populated in the swinging 60's.
But today I'm going to show you my personal take on a modern-"mod" eye. Meaning, I'm not using any false lashes or frosty tones, but I'll demonstrate how to achieve the "mod" shape and interpret it in a contemporary way.
I always begin with a clean, primed, eyelid and a light coat of mascara.
s a pan of jet black color called Barbarella, made by Becca Cosmetics. It doesn't smudge or run, and you activate it with a drop of water, so it stays stable and doesn't dry out or crack. Other good ones to consider are made by Makeup Forever and MAC. I start with a single drop of water and mix an inky consistency.
Fill in the space underneath the lashes as well, so that no skin remains uncolored.
