Make-Up Tips - How to Get "The Cat Eye" Look

Words by Jennifer Stein

Many of my avant-garde brides have requested at their bridal consultation that I create “THE CAT EYE” look on their wedding day - a makeup look that is more ideal for a candle lit evening hometown or destination wedding.

p>I suggest to my brides, if you decide to walk down the aisle with this sultry look to keep the eye shadow neutral and shaped filled brows are a must. Use a matte non-shimmer bronzer for blush, because you want to have the cheeks contoured without a lot of color. The face should be very clean and highlight only the key areas on the face. Your main focus should be the cat eyeliner, the red matte lipstick and of course you - the bride.

To create the perfect cat eye, dip the Bare Escentuals Buxom Lashliner Brush into Bare Escentuals Buxom Lashliner in Leatherette and swipe a thin line along the upper lash line and wing it out at the end. Rim the lower lash line with Bare Escentuals Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Onyx to balance out the dramatic lids. Finish by coating lashes with Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black.

To complete the look, aim for matte yet velvety skin by buffing in Bare Escentuals SPF 15 Matte Foundation. For a pout, line and fill lips with Bare Escentuals Buxom Big& Healthy Lipstick in Barcelona. It also has a built-in sharpener. MeWow!
