Metallic cat eyes


Well-known member
I know that many of you prefer makeup in natural colours, so here's a tutorial for sharp cat eyes with a hot metallic finish. I hope you'll like it!


1. Apply a primer on your eye area. Today I started off with my brows done, which is quite unusual. They're filled in with MAC Eyeshadow - Mystery.


2. Apply a shimmery golden brown shadow on the lid. MAD Minerals - Evocative.


3. And a darker one on the outer half of the lid. Blend the edge between the shadows. MAD Minerals - Topaz Sun.


4. Now blend the shadows out upwards. We don't want any harsh edges!


5 Now pick a dark brown shadow that you apply only at the outer edge of the lid. This creates a dramatic cat eye effect! Lily Lolo - Moonlight.


6. Apply a highlighter underneath the brow and blend it down into the shadows on the lid. This makes the transition from the lid shadows even nicer. Because I love extra everything I applied a shimmery shadow here too, but a matte one works just as well if you feel like toning it down a bit. MAC Eyeshadow - Shroom.


7. Now pick up your darkest shadow again and smudge it into both the top- and bottom lashline.


8. Time for liner! Create a fat wing on the top lid with liquid liner, extend it sideways to give it even more of a cat feel. I lined my waterline with a black kohl to make the eyes more intense.


9. Highlight the inner corner of your eye, again with Shroom. Apply lots of mascara! Maybelline Define-a-Lash Volume.


10. So what should we match the eyes with?
Cheeks: Benefit - One Hot Minute for some bronze glow. No blush this time.
Lips: NYX Round Lipstick - Narcissus with NYX Round Lipgloss - Real Nude on top.
Nails: China Glaze - Short & Sassy
And we're done!

Wow, I love it :) You're so skilled!

I'd like to try this myself but I don't have access to MAD make up, what MAC eyeshadows could compare to the colours you're using?

This is absolutely stunning. I'm definitely going to try this today. Your blending skills are admirable- everything fades perfectly together into a beautiful gold gradient.
