Soft cat eye tutorial

Do you love a good cat eye but liquid sometimes seems to harsh? Try this shadow line tutorial. I used Urban Decay's new smokey palette. FUN.

Start with a clean eye lid. I always apply an eye primer to lessen eye creases. My favorite cheap one is Elf's shadow lock eyelid primer in sheer.

Swept the shade "thirteen" all over your lid. I used a flat fluffy brush. 

Using that same flat fluffy brush sweep the shade "combust" just in the crease.

Take the shade "whisky"and draw a line mid eye to outer corner.

Now you look a little crazy. So get in there with a fluffy brush and windshield wipe back and forth until you are blended and smooth. 

take the flat fluffy brush, place the color "high" just on the round center of your lid. Lights up your look ever so slightly.
Now taking your angled brush, get the color "whiskey" (You can use whatever color you like, but I prefer this dark brown vs. a black. tends to be softer.) line your upper and lower lash lines to your liking. Making the wing as big or as small as your comfort level. A tip not to draw the line but you place the brush and re-load shadow as you go. Give more of a clean defined line and lessons fall out.

for the lower lash line I like to smoke out and smudge the line using a short and stubby brush.

I like to finish this look with a strong brow, mascara, light pink blush, and a classic red lip.
