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!
