Very few things make this seasoned makeup artist say, “Wow!” but seeing this hot green cat eye did! I can’t wait to bring this look to my clients who might want to try this for a sleek look at a formal event or maybe, a special date. Unlike the classic black eyeliner cat eye, this one incorporates various shades of green and an unusual smoky, yet cool liner.
Regardless of your eye color, you can capture this look beautifully! I suggest that you keep your lips and cheeks a bit muted to keep the focus on your eyes. Go sheer on the lips and use a blusher that plays well with your skin tone. Just to be clear the cat eye look extends the natural eye shape, giving it a slight tilt like a cat’s.
You’ll need these supplies:
- Eyebrow brush
- Eyebrow pencil
- Eye primer
- Dark green eyeliner
- Olive green eyeshadow
- Mint green eyeshadow
- Light green eyeshadow
- Black eyeliner
- Black mascara
Pay attention to those brows! They really make this look stand out. I brush the eyebrows up and outward. Next color the eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil, filling in gaps and making a full, angled shape.
Prep the eyelid with eye primer. For this colorful eye look, you need this product. It grabs the color and keeps the color true. I usually allow the primer to set for 30 seconds before I get started on the painting.
Use the dark green eyeliner to outline the design on your eyelid. Close the eye you plan to draw on first. On the top lid, draw from the inside corner to the outside of the eye, creating a slight wing up at the end. Stop drawing slightly past your eyebrow. This creates the illusion of the cat eye. (It’s okay if your lines aren’t perfect, it’s just a guide.
Under the eye, draw from the inside of the eye to the outside, meeting the liner where you made the wing up.
Use a short bristled eye makeup brush to apply the olive eye color to the area you outlined. I recommend pressing on the powder, keep the application controlled with short brushes. Blend the olive eyeshadow with the eyeliner.
Apply the light green eyeshadow above the olive shadow. Brush from the inside of the eye, under the brow bone and out to the edge. Blend where the two colors meet but keep them distinct.
Now apply black eyeliner to the upper and lower lash line. At the end of the eye, use the black eyeliner to make a wing at the end. Roll on black eyeliner on the water line too.
With an angled makeup brush, apply the mint green eyeshadow under the eye from the inside to the outside, just under the winged eyeshadow.
Finish up with two coats of mascara. Gorgeous!
