Fall Beauty Trends: Classic Cat Eye Tutorial

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I could have changed the thumbnail to this video, but G’s face is just too good . . . amiright?

Graphic liner is alllll over the place this fall.  There’s a whole lotta new funky ways to apply it, but I’m going to guess that most of you don’t want tips on how to wear liner like this.  Instead, I’m going to focus on the most wearable version of the graphic liner trend: classic cat eye makeup.

Classic Cat Eye  

My sister-in-law agreed to let me do her makeup so you guys could see how a cat eye looks on different face shapes.  It’s best to keep the rest of the face fairly neutral and let the eyes pop with this trend.  You can use any color or type of liner you like, but my favorite is classic black liquid liner.  (Although this trend would look seriously cool using a bright liquid liner in a fun color).

Wearing:

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Jet Black (available in many other colors, this one STAYS put)

MAC Eyebrows Pencil in Fling (the BEST color I’ve found for very light blonde brows)

Too Faced Cocoa Contour Chiseled to Perfection Palette (I LOVE this palette and use it on all of my brides . . . it comes with three shades of contour powder and a gorgeous highlighter . . . this palette will work year-round, regardless of getting lighter or darker with the sun . . . plus it smells delicious).

Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Tenderheart (THE best neutral color in a long lasting gloss).

Urban Decay Naked Foundation (still my favorite foundation of all time . . . after trying lots of others, this one is still my go-to for the lightweight feel but buildable coverage).

  1. I love how simple you’ve made this- thank you! I’d love to see some sort of “Contouring for Dummies” instructional video. I feel like contouring is something that I should be doing to my face but have no idea where to start. I’ve tried watching videos online but get overwhelmed when I see all sorts of brushes and products flying around. Please help this 38 year old, non-artistic, engineer and mom of 3 figure out contouring or at the least, what one should do with that really tiny make-up brush?!

  2. Nice job, I’ll probably never wear the cat eye- but good tutorial. Would you consider doing a tutorial for women who wear glasses? I wear thick frames, and I feel like makeup can be tricky.

    loved loved loved this tutorial!!! I have hooded eyelids, monolids, and age-related sagging — but even my teenage daughter said it looked perfect!!
    wonderful video —
    THANK YOU!

  4. Your tutorial video was all kinds of wonderful. I had decided that though I want to try the cat-eye, that gravity had already gotten the best of me. But your simple tutorial has me wanting to make a run to Sephora! Maybe 39 with 3 kids hasn’t gotten the best of me after all. Many thanks!

  5. Your tutorial was a breath of fresh air. I’ve noticed some natural aging in my eyes (36) recently and have been frustrated that my eye makeup just doesn’t look as good as it used to. I think I’ve been using old techniques on “new” eyes. Your comment about how you used to do cat eye makeup totally resonated with me–HUGE aha! I’ve been doing it the old way–which means droopy eyes. Love it–teach me more Scotti!

    • I’m so happy to hear that! To be honest, I kept making that mistake time and time again and through trial and error figured it out! Glad I could help! 🙂
