How To Do A Metallic Cat Eye

June 14, 2015 by Izabella Zaydenberg

I’ve never been the type to go “au natural.” To me, a fresh face calls for primer, concealer, foundation, a strong brow and, of course, a cat eye. I’m the kind of girl that rocks a wing for just about every occasion: running to the drugstore, going to brunch and obviously on a hot date. The problem, however, with always wearing a cat eye? It loses it’s wow factor. And that’s exactly why I started experimenting with ways to dress up the look on extra-special occasions. One of my favorite tricks right now is the addition of a glittery gold line. It’s super simple and seriously pops. The best part? You only need two products. Score!

First, start off with your basic winged line. I like to draw the wing first, then connect it to the middle of my lash line. Fill in afterwards–the outline should help keep the pigment inside the lines. I’ve been raving about Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen in Deeper and for good reason: it’s the blackest of black and the calligraphy tip is legitimately like using a paint brush on your lids.

Next, use a metallic liner–I am personally all about gold because it draws attention to the gold flecks in my eyes–and layer it over the top of the black liner, to create a Cleopatra-like effect. Draw some into your inner corner, too. I love using Urban Decay El Dorado for this, but a gunmetal gray would also be super pretty.
