It is a question harbored by many women, some of whom relentlessly research not only over the net but also in various libraries, at beauty parlors, and in conversations with other women. In reality, the method in attaining the cat eyes look is not rocket science. Indeed, just some simple strokes here and there can give you that cat eyes look which has been the envy of many women. Many men are attracted to women like Tyra Banks or, for that matter, Angelina Jolie just for the effect that their cat eyes create on their minds.


Step 1: Apply a light neutral base and highlight color. This has to be applied all over the eyelids using a natural hair blending brush. On the eyelid, just where the eye protrudes, apply a healthy color of deeper shimmery bronze color. Using a smaller brush, apply the color exactly on the lids, each time taking the color lightly under the eyes as well. This will give the eye a balance and create a more dramatic effect. This is the first step.

Step 2:  It is required to be soft handed when applying the crease color and take one’s own time to do it. Here again a dark color like that of a charcoal is useful. This has to be applied to the outside edges of the eyes to create a smoky crease. For this one can use a natural hair crease brush This upsweeps the color almost to the edge of the brows a little at a time, until the desired depth and color is obtained. The color has to be blended in an upward motion to crease that elongated cat eye effect.  We’re getting closer now!

Step 3:  The third step on cat eye journey is to use dark and sultry eyeliner or a black gel liner. This applies more easily, and looks much smoother than the liquid or pencil variety.  Using a small angle brush, the product is to be deposited on the top of the eyelids as close to the lash line as practicable and the liner is to be glided across the top lid, starting at a thinner stroke at the inside of the eye, while increasingly thickening the line and angling it upwards towards the eyebrow, as it slides towards the outer end of the eyes.  This will help create the cat eyes effect. Then a black pencil liner is applied on the inside of the eye to give that smoky look.

Step 4:  Ok, we are almost there; just one more step! Finish your look with some lengthening and thickening mascara and you will be ready to go! This is the final ultimate step on how to get cat eyes. Go ahead and flaunt your sexy eyes to the world!
