Everyone loves a little bit of drama, and what better way to have a dramatic style than cat eye makeup. This particular look was fashionable in the 1950s, and like almost everything else, it’s back in style. This cat makeup style can present a glamorous look for a special evening and it’s relatively simple to do, with a little bit of practice.
The perfect cat eyeliner is always fashionable and can certainly give a flattering look to all eye shapes. There’s also a sultry, mysterious look that comes in, even if the rest of your makeup is low. It doesn’t matter as this can make up for whatever may be missing. It makes your eye seem bigger and wider than it actually is.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND CAT EYE MAKEUP!
The art of cat eye makeup is nothing but extending your natural eye shape a little longer to give the illusion of bigger and wider eyes. It helps balance wide and square jawlines by visually widening that line, which draws all the attention to your eyes and the upper part of your face. By darkening the lash line, you can exaggerate the contrast between your eye and skin tone. This is proved to feminize your face and enhance your natural beauty.

STEP 1: PREPARATION FOR SIMPLE CAT MAKEUP
As the skin is usually dry, the eyeliner tends to tug at it and draws unevenly, if it isn’t well moisturized and it might also cause wrinkles. To avoid this, use your ring finger, to gently apply eye cream around your eyes, under and on the lid. Let it sit for a minute before you proceed.
STEP 2: NEUTRALIZE
Take a wide eye shadow brush and dip it into a neutral eye shadow. After dipping, remove excess by gently tapping the brush against a hard surface. Apply the eye shadow on the upper lids of your eye, evenly.
STEP 3: LINE
Make sure that your eye pencil is sharpened. Using the back of your finger, gently pull up the skin, so that, the eyelid becomes taut. Now trace a line as close to your lash line as possible. On the outer end of the eyelid, draw that line upwards following the invisible line your bottom eyelid would make if it extended up past the corner of your eye. Go ahead and make the line as long as you wish for your look.
STEP 4: SETTING UP CAT EYES MAKEUP
Take a flat eyeliner brush and dip it into a dark cream or powder eye shadow. Gently press this brush as close to the eye line as possible so that, it covers over the liner. When you do this, it will set the eyeliner, remove excess oil and prevent smudging, the worst thing that could happen to a cat-eye makeup and you definitely don’t want that.
STEP 5: CLEAN-UP
Take a Q tip and dip it into eye cream. Use that to smooth out the jagged edges, which may be sticking out and even the lines, which may be in excess. The eyes now are completed with the most trendy simple cat makeup.
In this way, you can perfectly dramatize your look by following the above-mentioned simple cat eye makeup steps. These are pretty simple and everyone can follow in their domain by making little bit of variations.
