Get the Look: New Year's Eve Glitter Cat Eye Tutorial

The cat eye makeup look is definitely a favorite look of mine … and probably a million other women. Creating a cat eye is a much simpler task than the smokey eye and requires a lot less products, yet you will still be left with a seductive, smoldering night out look! This sparkling cat eye is different from the usual, since A) it’s designed for a night out, and B) it’s glittery  and therefore perfect for New Year’s! Of course when I think of New Year’s Eve, I’m reminded of sequins and the sparkling Times Square ball festivities so I went with a cat eye inspired by all this glitz and glam. Follow along with my steps below to get this dazzling look!

    Note: You could stop here and move to Step 6, but if you're feeling daring, trace the liner on you lower lash line ,stopping half-way across.

    If you choose to follow step 4, you have the option to add a wing to your lower lash line! From the center of you lower lash line, draw a straight line out, keeping parallel to the top liner. Make sure to keep a small space between the two lines.

  • Step 6: Doll up Your Waterline 7 of 10

    With a black liner (waterproof), line your waterline aka the inside part of your lash line. This will make the look sultry and dramatic.
