4 Steps to the Perfect Cat Eye Makeup

For many beauty lovers, attempting the perfect cat eye can be as daunting as crossing paths with an actual black cat. So, in honor of Halloween, it’s our treat to bring you a guide to mastering this tricky technique.

As with every eye look, the right palette makes all the difference. Our current obsession: Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eye Shadow Palette. This collection of must-have matte neutrals includes all those everyday shades you’ll use over and over again. But when it comes to the cat eye, it’s all about the eyeliner. To get that coveted shape you’ll need a super-refined tip like Urban Decay Perversion Fine-Point Eye Pen. The smaller the point, the more control you’ll have in creating your line. And since we’re amping up the glam for Halloween, we’re adding a little shimmer with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner.

Trace the crease of your eye with a neutral matte
shade. We used medium warm brown, Faith.

 

 

Deepen your crease with a darker shade
like Extra Butter and apply a light shadow, like Blow,
on your lid and under your brow arch.

 

 

Use a liquid pen liner with a refined tip to create
your cat eye shape, ending with a slightly upward
flick just beyond your lash line. Clean up any
imperfections with a Q-tip.

 

 

For a touch of shimmer, add a thin layer of
glitter gel above the outer half of your liner.
