My version of Beyonce's Colourful Cat eyes

Hi beauties, I am trying to do this post before I go to work but I don't think the perfectionist in me will allow me to rush it. lol I watched Beyonce's Countdown video and all I really liked about it was the makeup which was mostly inspired by the 50s and 60's, some 80's too. My favourite look was the different cat eyes in several bright colours to match her leotards. I decided to try two of them ( I didn't wear matching tops lol)- orange cat eye and yellow cat eye. My eyes are slightly bigger and more round than Beyonce's so it doesn't look exactly the same on me but I loved how it turned out.

The key to bright colours on your eyes is using a white based primer to help the colour pop and to pat the colour on adding layers till you get the desired colour payoff you want. Never rub eyeshadow with the brush because you will just end up wiping it off, you want to pat it onto the primer so it will stay put.




MEOW lol. JUST BRONZER ON THE CHEEKS.

DEFINED THE CREASE USING AN ANGLE BRUSH WITH MAC EMBARK E/S THEN BLENDED IT OUT SO IT DOESN'T LOOK TOO HARSH



LOL BEING SILLY

USED THE MATTE ORANGE FROM MY 42 DOUBLE STACK PALETTE TO ADD COLOUR TO THE MUFE 18 E/S

MUFE 18, BRIGHT ORANGE E/S packed unto the eyes.

FOR THE FACE THE USUAL SUSPECTS AND NUDE LIPS TO GO WITH THE BRIGHT EYES

DID A DOUBLE WING FOR THIS ONE AND CUT THE CREASE USING MAC EMBARK E/S.



GOT A NEW BLUSH FROM PHYSICIAN'S FORMULA CALLED HAPPY BOOSTER GLOW AND MOOD BOOSTING BLUSH IN ROSE. WILL DO A REVIEW LATER. (CUTE HEARTS )


On the eyes: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk as a base then packed on MAC Chrome Yellow E/S ( LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE PALETTE). Lined with Annabelle Liquid Eyeliner in Blackout and Maybelline Eyestudio Gel liner followed by losts of Mascara.

Hope you liked it. Going to bed now. Night beauties.
