EOTD: Teal Ombre Cat Eye

OH EM GEE, you guys! I am so stoked! So, I've been lurking the makeup blogging/vlogging/Instagram circuit again since I've been more active on StyleByCat, and I've been so inspired by these super-amazing looks that have been popping up. Artists are sooooooooo creative and talented these days, each one out-doing the next in terms of insanely gorgeous looks! Honestly, I can't even keep up anymore, lol!

Anyhoo, there's this ombre cat eye that I've been seeing a lot of them doing, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm really rusty with the creative stuff since it doesn't really fit my lifestyle anymore. (I've gone practical. Practical = BORING) Y'all know I love my blue/greens, so I decided to try a teal version. Turned out pretty good!



This was a super-duper fun look to do. I admit, it requires a steady hand and it looked kind of awful when I started it, but with some refining, it turned out pretty awesome!

Here is the eye makeup product list:

  • UD Primer Potion in Eden
  • Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner
  • UD eyeshadow in Blackout
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald
  • Coastal Scents Original 88 palette (3 teal shades of varying values)
  • Maybelline Full N Soft Waterproof mascara
  • Ardell #120 eyelashes
Yay! On the downside, it doesn't look as impressive with my eyes open. DARN YOU, HOODED MONOLIDS!!! Which means I either have to walk around with my eyes closed, which I wouldn't recommend, or half-open, which simply looks dumb. Lol. Oh well. People can appreciate my makeup when I blink. Haha!

Woo hoo!

Darn, looks like I overdid my eyeliner! XD

Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post as much as I loved writing it. Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Hugs,
Cat

    1. Thanks, girl! Trust me, it looked pretty terrible at first, I started questioning my decision. Lol, but I was patient and took my time refining the lines. Turned out better than I had expected! :)

  2. A shame you can't see it with your eyes open but the look is overall well done! I really like that you did ombre using teal, i'd be to afraid of how bold the color is but it looks great on you.

    1. Yeah, I know! I'm so bummed about that. I think this look would be great with more neutral colors, also, like nudes and bronzes. ;)
