Brown smokey cat eye

Every time I show a cat eye make-up, I get cute comments that it is nice and "how do you do it?". I think it's super fun because it's really super nice, and the effect is very effective if you want a make-up that lifts the eyes :)

Therefore, today I thought I would share what I think is the absolute easiest way to get this shape nicely. Unfortunately, I do not have a step-by-step description, but I try to explain in detail so that you understand anyway!


Here are my top three tips for a simple cat eye:

Make up only on the top of the eyes
As you can see, I have not put make-up under my eyes at all, because if you are going to tie the lower lash line with the upper in such an elongated shape, it will be a much higher degree of difficulty.

Start from the eyeliner wing
What I have done is to start painting an eyeliner with a wing, and then just apply the eyeshadow on the eyelid inside this eyeliner, so that the black line is like the very edge of the makeup! Then just tone out the shadow along the globe line, and then you have a nice shape.

Choice of eye shadows
This make-up can be done with all colors, but if you find it difficult, I recommend choosing as dark a shade as possible because it blends more into the eyeliner so that any irregularities (both on the eye shadow and the eyeliner) are not as visible.

Then if you want a light eye shadow, you can in such cases use both a light and a dark. For example. one dark at the outer edge at the eyeliner wing and the light at the inner edge, or the light along the globe line and the dark along the entire eyeliner.


The lipstick / gloss is Paese Manifesto Liquid Lipstick in shade 901.


Black eyeliner with wing, Palina Drama Queen Perfect Liner Black.
Brown eye shadow on the entire eyelid, Paese Kashmir Eyeshadow (604)
Light eye shadow In the corner of the eye, Paese Kashmir Eyeshadow (667)
Black mascara on all lashes, NYX Doll Eye Mascara.



Hope you understood my tips and that they were helpful! Just to shout if you have any questions :)
