Usually there is no rule about the choice of the eyeshadow colors for the cat eye makeup style. You just need to select shades in accordance with your preferences and features, like the eye or skin tone. The most optimal set of eyeshadows will be the one features various hues of the same color. Black eyeliner and mascara are the must-have tools for this makeup style, and if you also pick falsies the result is definitely going to be more dramatic and memorable.

In the case of our bold cat eye makeup tutorial, we have adhered to more natural eyeshadow tones, which will create a harmonious balance between the bold lip color and the expressive black arrows drawn. And the steps go as follows!

Step 1: Like always, start from the base, applying makeup primer and then a foundation on your freshly washed face. Sculpt your face with a bronzer and a blush and the ideal basis for a luxurious makeup style is ready!

Step 2: Shape your eyebrows using a brow kit (Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony).

Step 4: Apply a shimmery champagne eyeshadow all over the mobile lid (The Balm Mary Lou Manizer). Next, apply a glitter glue (Too Faced Glitter Glue) and some glitter to the center part of the lid (Wimpernwelle glitter).

Step 5: Starting from the end of the eye, trace a thin wing (Inglot AMC gel eyeliner). Next, apply black eyeliner close to the lash line. Blend the outer edge of the wing with a black eyeshadow.
