Bronze smoky eye made even more dramatic with a pop of glitter and a cat eye!
Angled brush (brows & liner), blending brush (shadow), definer brush (shadow & glitter)
1. Stila Kitten eyeshadow 2. MAC Brown Down eyeshadow 3. MUFE Sand Glitter 4. MAC Coquette eyeshadow 5. MAC Soft Ochre paint pot 6. MAC Blacktrack Fluidline gel eyeliner 7. Too Faced Glitter Glue
First thing's first. Soft Ochre paint pot is my everyday non-negotiable. It's the most amazing primer ever. Just a little bit all over the lid before shadow, and it will last allll day long. Even after a night of partying. Apply that first- just a thin layer with your fingertip.
Next you want to use your blending brush to apply Kitten on your brow bone and inner corner of your eye. Use your definer brush to add Brown Down just to the crease, then pick up your blending brush again to blend it out.
Take your definer brush to pat a little bit of glitter glue just to the lower part of your eyelid, then use the same brush to pat on a layer of glitter.
Before you apply your eyeliner, use your angle brush and Coquette eyeshadow to fill in and shape your brows. This color looks funky in the pot, but it is the most perfect brunette brow color. I use it every single day. Try MAC Soba or Omega eyeshadows if you're blonde, and Saddle or Brown Script if you're a redhead. Now use the same brush (dust off the excess shadow first) to apply the gel eyeliner.
Here's a great photo tutorial on how to do a cateye. If you're anything like me, photos work much better than words, so I'll let this do the talking:
As you get better and more practiced, you can tweak the shape of the liner, but for now this is a great straight forward tutorial for a simple winged liner.
Add a little black liner in the waterline of your eye, a few coats of mascara, and voila! You're good to go!
