Look: Brown Cat Eyes

Friday, August 19, 2011

I am not very creative in giving titles to my look posts titles, hence, the title of this post. Anyways, this look is the first in my series of inspired make-up looks. Don't get me wrong, I will still be making looks out of what I thought will look good on me and many others who might want to do the looks that I do. These inspired looks will only be about recreation of the looks from the professional make-up artists. I am no professional so being able to decently recreate a look done by professional MUA will be a great achievement. Shall we start?

I was inspired by a photograph from a 2009 magazine. I was browsing for articles that I might get interested into when I stumbled into this photo and immediately fell in love with it. I believe that it would look good one me since I see myself in her. Slap me! :)

Sorry for the crappy photo. I took this using a mobile device.
Note: Please be advised that I tried to recreate the look with some minor adjustments.  I know that I was not able to achieve the greatness of the entire look but at least I exerted an effort to try. :)

1. Prime the lids. This will make the colors appear more vibrant and will make the eyeshadows last longer than usual.
2. Apply a brown cream eyeshadow as a base. Since we are aiming for a cat eye, it would better if we start making the shape this early.

3. Pat on a brown/bronze powder eyeshadow on the inner half the lid. For hooded lids like mine, make sure to go a little above the crease area for the color to be seen.

4. Apply a slightly darker brown/bronze eyeshadow on the outer half.

5. With an orangey brown eyeshadow, blend the harsh edges. This color will also be our transition color. I advise that you blend going through the brow area and following the shape.

6. Once in a while, open your eyes to check if the colors are showing. This step is a must for those with hooded lids. 

7. Accentuate the outer V with a black eyeshadow. Blend!

8. Line the outer half of the lower lashline with the same black eyeshadows and with a gold eyeshadow on the inner half. The gold eyeshadow will make the eyes look open.

9. Line the eyes with a black gel eyeliner or a liquid eyeliner. Of course, go for a cat eye. Overdo it!

10. Line the waterline with a black eyeliner. This will add drama!

11. Curl lashes, and apply mascara. For an even more drama, apply demi lashes.

12. Redefine eyebrows. I am having problems with my eyebrows lately. Urgh!

13. Apply foundation, conceal everything that needs to be concealed, contour face, and apply blush.
Crazy photo! :)

14. Dab on a nude lipstick and DONE!
