Get the Look: Playful Cat Eye!

Have you been watching Project Runway?! If not, you should - they have an awesome group this season - one of the best in a while! 

If you've been watching the show, you'll know they often feature Mary Kay makeup looks on the models, and then show you how to get the look at home.  This look is by Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco and this playful cat eye was featured on models in a recent episode! And I'm going to break it down for you here:


First off, you want to start with a clean face. I prepped my eye lids and under eye area with  Mary Kay  CC Cream (color correcting cream). I then did a light coat of Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Moonstone across my eye lids. In the crease, I put Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Driftwood. For this color, I used an eye shadow brush and used a sweeping motion, sort of in the shape of an arc. Moonstone is a great pearly colored neutral. I love it because it's so versatile - you could wear it with any other color. Driftwood is also a favorite of mine - it's the perfect brown and easy to build up on. 

You want to then use your eyeshadow brush to blend the two colors together, and up under the crease of your eye lid.  After that's done, I did a light line of Mary KayGel Eyeliner in Jet Black on the edge of my lash line. If you've never used a gel liner, it's a little pot of color that comes with a small brush. It looks a little intimidating, but really it's just as easy as a liquid liner, and it actually gives you more control. You can put as little or as much of the color on the brush and then put it on as thick/thin as you want it. For an eyeliner junkie like me - this was a fun product to try and has quickly become one of my new favorites! Here's a picture of the gel liner and the brush:



After putting on the black liner, I let it dry for a minute and then do a little bit of Mary Kay at Play Eye Liner in Blue My Mind. I like this little pop of blue - it's a fun twist that is very wearable. You definitely want to let the eyeliner dry another minute before putting on your mascara. So after the eyeliner, I go and put on my everyday loose translucent powder and my favorite Mary Kay Bronzer in light-medium. After your powder, you want to go back and do two coats of Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black. This is a great, (non clumpy) mascara. I love it!

I finished the look with a coat of Mary Kay® Nourishine Lip Gloss in Au Naturel (another one of my favorite products!) This lip gloss is the perfect neutral lip for a bold eye! It's pretty and shiny and easy to put on. It's long lasting and isn't sticky which I love! If you'd rather a little more color, I recommend Mary Kay Lip Stick in Pink Cherie, a light pink color shown in this look!

Verdict: I love this look and think the little bit of blue is a great mix with my everyday browns and pinks. I really love this black gel eyeliner and will be adding that into my rotation!
