EyelidJolie's dramatic cat eyes are made softer than the sixties version by blending the dark shade used on the outer corners with a more neutral shade on the lid. To get the cat-look without looking like Cat-Woman, first apply a neutral or soft gray matte shadow to the entire lid area with a fat brush. CreaseNow, hold a regular pencil next to your face from the outer corner of the eye to the outer tip of your eyebrow. Using a thin brush, sweep a gray/blue shadow along the top edge of the pencil to create a strong diagonal line.
Now close your eye and hold the pencil diagonally against your eyelid from the outer tip of your eyebrow down toward the center of your eye (covering your iris) against the eyelashes. Sweep the same gray/blue shadow along the top edge of the pencil and then lightly fill in the areas between the two lines and blend. If even more drama is desired, use a small amount of this shadow to delicately fill the crease of the eye about half way across from the outer corner. Blend well.
To soften the cat-look, take a clean brush and gently press/tap it into the eyelid. HiliteApply a frosty silvery-blue shadow to the inner corners of the eye area, continuing across the lid and stopping just before you meet the darker shadow. Use the shadow that's left on the brush to sweep underneath the arch of the brows and from the inner corner of the eye, straight up to the brow to highlite the eye. You can also put this under the lower lashes with a small brush to create contrast, after the eyeliner is applied. EyelinerUse a gray pencil to line both the lower and upper lashes from the outer corner to 3/4 of the way across, just past the iris. Smudge and blend the line the rest of the way to the inner corner of the eye. BrowsUse a brow wax with a small brush to shape and fill in. Start by defining the arch and then fill in the rest as necessary. MascaraCurl lashes and coat with a black, lengthening mascara.
LIPSLips should be lined with a soft brown or taupe and then filled in with a matte nude shade. TRICK: you can recreate this nude mouth by applying a creamy concealer to your lips and then lining them with a light or medium brown eye or brow pencil (a soft one). Then blend with a brush to get the nude color, adding more pencil or concealer as desired. Add a gloss or balm for sheen.
