Blue gradient with cateye
Well, this is my first .. ok second attempt at a cat eye shape with liquid eyeliner.
It's not as easy as i hoped it would be but i guess practice makes perfect right?
1- Apply your usual foundation routine, and an eyeshadow base.
2- In the inner corner of your eyelid, apply your lightest blue.
3- Follow up next to that, in the middle third of your eyelid, with a medium blue.
4-On the last third and outer V of your eye apply your darkest blue.
5-Apple a white or similar highlight colour on your brow bone.
6- now, using a very small amount of the white, blend each colour together, as well as blending the top line into the white.
7- using a liquid eyeliner, draw a thin line as close to your lashes as humanly possible.
8- using a damp eyeliner brush (oohhhh crafty), blend out the line a little so it is more smooth.
9- make a littel v-shape extending from the eyeliner at the inner corner of your eyes and connect it up to your bottom lashes.
10- fill in the V shape with black pencil eyeliner, and line your waterline too.
11-at the outer corner, using the damp eyeliner brush, smudge a line pretty much straight out from the corner and connect it back to the eyeliner a little higher up, creating another v. fill it in
12- follow up with loads of black mascara
any mistakes can be fixed with a q tip, a makeup removal towelette or a makeup remover pen thing.
