Time for smoky cat eyes

So it seems that it’s time to try out that smoky cat eyes effect again, my girls!!!! It has been seen on celebrities such as Rachel Bilson, Jessica Szohr , and model Kate Moss, and even on the runway for Lanvin F/W 2011. Now I know it’s kinda a “been there done that” thing but it never fails to make me look fabulous, seriously! In fact, i do the smoky cat eyes whenever i can’t be asked to put make up on, lol. Some say it’s hard to master but for me it’s really easy to do with this eye shadow kit i bought from Kate (subsidiary brand of Kanebo).  Since it’s so easy, i thought it would be a great idea to show you what make up products i use for my smoky eyes look. 

First is the Kate eye shadow kit. They’ve got great varieties of colors to choose from and they are pretty cheap too! I think its roughly around US$17, not bad eh. You’ll see on the photo below that one of the palette is labelled A,B,C,D, and E, and this is for reference only so it’ll be easier to explain how i do my make up. So far, I’ve bought the blue and green palette.  I tend to use the first 3 colors only (A,B, and C), where i mix the light (C) and medium shimmery (B) shades as the base and then apply the darker (A) shade over it. Sometimes i’ll  add the silver shimmer (E) to give my eyes more shine and glitz.

Next i use the Majolica Majorca (subsidiary brand of Shiseido) mascara to give my lashes that volumized look for a more dramatic effect. It seriously does some volumizing!!! Majolica Majorca has come out with many versions already, where there is the lash volumizer, lash extender, glitter top coat, and lash base. For more review on these products, you can check out the blog Musings of a Muse, where the blogger provides  lovely and descriptive details on all the products. Unfortunately, the bad news is that MJ is only available in Asia, including Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Thailand.

Then we go further down and work on the lippies!!!  I use the Fresh Sugar lip balm that i just recently bought as a base for my dry lips. It has a really rich moisture to it, where it’s sweet and blackcurrent oil is enough to make my lips sing!  Afterwards, i just apply a touch of my magical Becca  “Champagne” lip gloss. I love this color and i just found out from their website that it’s out of stock! Good seller indeed:)

Finally, i leave you here with my style inspiration to get that smoky cat eyes look when you are feeling it. Meowwwwwww…..;)
