    Using a slim eyeliner brush, trace over your pencil line with a black eyeshadow shade. Gently buff it out for a well-blended, smoky effect.

    To create a sharp cat eye shape, outline eyes at the inner and outer corners with a black liquid eyeliner. Try Hyper Easy Liquid Liner, an ultra-thin and precise eyeliner pen that will give you the perfect shape every time!

  5. How to Do Cat Eye Makeup Step 5: Add Shadow & Mascara

    Brush eyelids with a smoky plum eyeshadow shade. Then, press a bit of gold eyeshadow into the inner corners of the eye for depth and shine. Now, the mascara! MUA favorite The Falsies Lash Lift Washable Mascara will create the plush, bouncy lashes this look calls for.
