Brush a light-colored eye shadow on your eyelid from the inner corner to the middle. This light shade will make the inside corners of your eyes pop without drawing too much attention to that area.
Spread a slightly darker eye shadow on your eye lid, starting in the middle and ending on the outer edge of the lid. Blend the two shades in the middle of the lid, (A straight line down the middle of your eyelid is anything but chic!)
Smudge an eyeliner pencil into your top lash line, starting at the inside corner and moving to the outer corner. Don't make the line too thick. This is just your base.
Draw a thick line of liquid eyeliner on the top lid, starting in the middle of your lid and ending in an upward curve about 1/4 inch from the outside edge of the eye. You should already see the cat-eye shape forming. Meow!
Draw a smooth line of liquid eyeliner along your bottom lash line, starting in the middle and ending it when it meets the upward curve of the top line of liquid eyeliner. Almost finished!
Apply mascara to your top and bottom lashes to complete the look. Brush a second layer of mascara on the lashes toward the outer edges of your eyes. Go ahead and finish the rest of your normal makeup routine. Cleopatra's got nothing on you!
Keep your lipstick color toned down when wearing the cat-eye look. You want all the attention to be on your eyes.
Don't apply liquid eyeliner to the inner parts of your eyes. This will make them appear more close-set than ever.
