Exaggerated Smokey Cat Eye Makeup Look

Exaggerated Cat Eye

Exaggerated cat eye Constraint is passé as far as a smoky eye is concerned. The 2018 version of the smoky eye, spotted on catwalks in Milan and Paris is more smudged out, less defined, carrying a hint of grunge and oodles of dark glamour. Inspiration: Max Mara SS 18 Milan show Intense black on the eyes diffused cleverly to give an alluring and modern cat-eye look. Bold brows and faux lashes build the drama while the subtle lips and makeup keep the focus on the eyes.



Recreate this pretty look in 5 easy steps

Step 1:
Prepare the base with Total makeover FF Cream palette and set the base with Glow to Glamour matte fixing powder.

Step 2:
Contour the cheeks and nose with the bronzer from the Chisel It Show Stopper palette. Use highlighter on the higher planes of the face like cheekbones, bridge of the nose and forehead. Apply blush from the same palette on the hollows of your cheek.
