STEP 1: SHAPE YOUR EYEBROWS
The first step is to shape and fill in your brows. Use a pencil to fill and darken them with a tint and finally use a gel or mousse to provide hold.. Remember that eyebrows are never the same and there are always slight asymmetries.
STEP 2: BLEND BROWN EYE SHADOW INTO YOUR CREASE
Right before you use your eyeshadow, you need to add a base to your lid to make sure the shadow stays put. Take your concealer or eyeshadow base and apply it to your eyelid. Then take a neutral colored powder and lightly powder it on top to set it. Now it’s time to move on to the eyeshadow, take a brown shade and use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend it into the crease of your eye.
STEP 3: ADD A CUT CREASE
Don’t be impressed by the name “cut crease” it’s not rocket science. To start, use a flat, compact brush and cover your entire lid with concealer. You’ll need to extend beyond the outer corner of your eye to create a wing.
STEP 4: DEFINE THE “CUT CREASE”
Now it’s time to level the cut crease. Take a fine-tip brush and a dark brown eyeshadow (darker than the brown shadow you used before), and refine the edge of the concealer to make your look more intense.
STEP 5: ADD GLITTER
Now it’s time to get to the fun part: Cover your entire eyelid with gold glitter.
STEP 6: DRAW A CAT EYE
Now, take a black liquid liner and draw a cat eye. In order to make the eyes stand out, add layers of mascara on your upper lashes or use false lashes.
STEP 7: CONTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT
Next, define your cheekbones (and the rest of your face). Take a matte contouring powder and sweep it under your cheekbones, along your hairline and down the sides of your nose. Now, apply a gold highlight to the top of your cheekbones and the middle of your nose.
STEP 8: LOWER LASH LINE
Take your eyeliner and line your lower lashes until the entire lash line is covered. White eyeliner makes your eyes look much bigger and more feline.
STEP 9: DEFINE THE WHITE LINE
Now, take your dark brown eyeshadow and a fine-tipped brush and line the outer edge of the white pencil. Then, take a pointed brush and use it to erase the brown line.
STEP 10: PAINT YOUR NOSE AND UPPER LIP
How do you get a lion’s eye look without a black nose? Take a black pencil (or face paint) and color the tip of your nose. Then draw a line from your nose to the middle of your upper lip. Fill in your upper lip so that it is completely black, then use the tip of the brush to draw little whiskers.
STEP 11: APPLY A NEUTRAL LIPSTICK TO YOUR BOTTOM LIP
Finally, swipe a neutral lipstick over your bottom lip to really finish the look.
And you’re done! Now get ready to make some people blush!
