Cat Eyes

Some mornings I just feel like a a cat eye. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over my upper and lower lids. Then I applied Evil Shades Padawan to the entire eyelid. I followed up with Too Faced Perfect Waterproof liner in Perfect Black and lined around my eyes. I really like the effect. Even after all day wear, I had very minimal visible transfer. These are good liners for my oily lids.

I’m trying out the Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 110 Pink Porcelain. I went to the Sephora store at International Plaza (aka I-Mall) and got matched by one of the makeup artists there. She said this shade blended seamlessly into my neck. And really, upon looking in the mirror, I felt like it blended in very seamlessly, too, so it came home with me.

Too Faced Perfect Waterproof liner in Perfect Black
Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Primer (only available at WalMart, as far as I’m aware)
Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara
MAC Blackberry – to define brows

Tarte Amazonian Clay Illuminating Primer – only on my t-zone
Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 110 Pink Porcelain (probably 2 small 1/2 pumps for my entire face)

MAC Vintage Grape

Venomous Cosmetics gloss in Flamingo

I applied the MUFE foundation with my finger tips, but I did use my Sephora Pro Concealer Airbrush brush #57 under my eyes and around the nose. Though really, the foundation didn’t seem to need a brush.

It seems like another life when I was in high school and would only wear foundation and eyeliner and dark lipstick. I definitely love the impact that just eyeliner can make.

What do you think of this look? Do you ever feel compelled to go for looks like this?

      Lurve the cat eye! Foundation looks nice too, though I think you look great in your usual BB cream- the MUFE seems a little more noticible on the skin (and heaven forbid you should get flaky at all this winter, it’s over!) When you have great skin- and you do- I say let it show! :)

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! The BB cream covers more than this, I think. I’ve been bouncing between different foundies.

      Love the ‘barely there’ look, Phyrra. It really makes your eyes pop!

        Thanks Kookith!

      Hmm…I’m not sure about the foundation, it looks like you’re wearing foundation in the photos and that’s usually not the case with other things you’ve worn. However, it might be one of those ones that looks different in photography than in real life.

      I wish I could do a cat eye! I have spent years perfecting my ability to draw as fine a line as possible with my eyeliners, so it makes it a little difficult to transition to drawing something noticeable.

      • Phyrra

        You can always do your fine line, and then add a little at the outer corner :)

      Hmm, I personally would lay off the built-in flash except for cases of emergency. It causes the photos to have really harsh shadows that isn’t really pretty. No matter how good your camera is, built-in flash tends to be too small to accommodate anything bigger than a hamster.

      Another thing that might help is to actually use the zoom on the camera instead of pointing the lens really close to your eyes. Depending on the lens, doing the latter can sometimes distort the frame to a very, very slight fish-eye effect. Sorry if I sound like a know-it-all. ^^;

      Other than that, you sound like you’re having a lot of fun with make-up and your new camera! It’s quite exciting to see. :D

        Part of the problem is I find it difficult to turn off. It’s not a quick on off like my other camera :( and sometimes it just auto comes on (the flash. I’ve been using the zoom that my camera has and the lcd screen that flips around, but it’s hard when I’m doing it as a self portrait. That’s part of what’s taking me so long to learn :/

      That looks great. I need to perfect my cat eye! With my stupid hooded eyes it just never seems to look right. Maybe it’s just not for me.

      • Phyrra

        I have hooded eyes too, so I feel you. It’s hard sometimes.

      What a great, simple look! Loving your hair! I love how your hair is constantly changing!

      I really like the glowy look of this foundation! You look nice with a simple look like this, maybe even a bit younger :)

      Cat-eyes are great for early mornings when I am too tired to think about what colors to combine, I wear this look quite often although it is not the most flattering look on my eyes.

        Thanks Silke!

      I love the clean, perfectly drawn eyeliner. One of my favourite looks even though it features nothing but classic, black liner!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Anna!

      I really notice a difference between your new camera and your old camera! The quality is so nice and I love the cat eye!

        Thanks Mai :)
