The cat-eye is timeless. But add an exaggerated flick, smoky black eye shadow and lashes of black mascara, and it’s ultra-edgy too. Here’s how to perfect this party-appropriate look: the smoky cat-eye.
Start by applying a light-coloured eye shadow to your entire eyelid and to the inner corner of your eye .
Use a black kohl pencil to line your upper and lower waterline.
Use a soft black eyeliner to line your upper eyelashes. Extend the eyeliner and create a triangle shape at the outer corner of your eye. Use a clean makeup brush to fade the colour slightly.
Fill in the triangle shape with a smoky black eye shadow. Use an angled brush to get really sharp edges. Blend the black shadow into the eyelid with a clean makeup brush.
Blend the black shadow with a warm beige eye shadow. Finish your look with a few layers of black mascara.
