The Secret To A Perfect Smokey Cat Eye Is In The Eye Pencil

Want your eyes to look sexy and alluring? If so, you’ve probably perfected the art of creating a foolproof smokey eye, but blending this eye makeup trend with a more classic technique can be both smoldering and sophisticated. One of the coolest looks gaining steam everywhere from the red carpet to the runway is a smokey cat eye, which combines the chic appearance of a smokey eye with the timeless appeal of an elongated, feline-inspired eye shape.

To get this top look, you need to have a great eyeliner. A soft pencil or liquid liner will do, but you have to have a long-lasting, reliable product that won’t waver – no matter how late into the night you wear the makeup. Borghese Cosmetics offers an Eye Accento Pencil that’s designed to last for hours without irritating your eyes. Another great option is BABOR’s Maxi Definition Eye Contour Pencil, which provides bold color that will help you shape the eye with ease.

The dark eyeliner will be used to line the inner rims of your eyes, as well as for creating the signature cat shape on your lid, so it’s extremely important that you choose a product that you’re comfortable with – and one that won’t let you down. Also, pick a shadow that will blend well with your eyeliner, helping to create a smokey look with a well-defined shape.  With the help of the right liner, you’ll be rocking the smokey cat eye in no time.

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
