Leonine Liner: Glitter Pink

Lately, I've been experimenting with a more literally "cat-eye" look, you know, the feline-esque Cleopatra eyeliner.  For the fun of it, I broke out some Urban Decay makeup that has been, sadly, collecting dust in my train case(es).  Seriously, I have too much makeup...but I'm sure all of us have that problem. (or else y'all wouldn't be reading me)  I love my Urban's just that I have so much of it, it's hard to give all my palettes and products equal quality time!  This is what I did with my sudden burst of (colorful) creative inspiration:

Products used: Primer Potion in Eden, 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Zero, 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner in Woodstock, Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Catfight, Rollergirl Palette.

This look was simple to do with outstanding effects:

- After applying primer, I brushed Suspect to my entire top and bottom lid and highlighted my brow arch with Verve. 

- Then I used black eyeliner to line my eyes in a leonine, Cleopatra-style shape.

- Next, I traced my top lash line eyeliner with Woodstock liquid eyeliner.

- My final step was to accent Woodstock with Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner in Catfight.

Despite the pop of hot pink, this look is very wearable.  Here, Woodstock is more of an accent than a full-on color barrage.  If you're curious to experiment with sparkle and bright hues, this is a good way to do so without looking overly conspicuous.  I imagine this eye style would look smashing in gold or turquoise as well, or whatever your favorite color is!

On lips: UD Lip Junkie Gloss in Crush

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday so far!
