December Eye Make-Up Challenge: Day 2 "Cat-Eye Liner"

I had to think long and hard about this one. I already wear a regular liquid eyeliner flick as my every day make up, so I really wanted to go out of the box and try something I've never done before. The end result was this:


Okay so obviously this isn't your average day-time look! I really wanted to concentrate on the idea of being a cat. I think this is more of a costume look but I could definitely imagine wearing it to a party.
To create this look I first used my Body Shop Eye Definer to lightly "map out" my graphic flicks. I then went over them with my Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner and created two separate flicks coming from my upper and lower lash lines. The hardest bit for me here was using the liquid liner on my lower lashline as it's something I've never done before! I made quite a mess and had to adjust several times. I'm still not 100% happy with the shape but for a first try it's not bad at all!
The shadow used here is the yellow-gold shade in the Sleek Sunset palette. I thought this would add just a subtle pop of colour and I'm really happy with my choice. (Even if it is a bit waspy/bumble-bee like) I did toy with using a green or red but I think the yellow-gold is quite regal, just how cats seem to think of themselves! Mascara is my trusty Body Shop Super Volume in Black.


So that's look two all taken care of! I really hope you liked my interpretation, let me know in the comments. I've linked look one above if you wanted to check that out.
