spring beauty {the cat-eye}

brush: e.l.f. angled liner brush / shadow: lancome - similar shade here in 'black cat'

mascara: maybelline full n' soft
The cat-eye - I'm sure you've seen it everywhere lately, in an array of shapes and sizes. On the spectrum of, say, Emma Stone to Adele, my version of the cat-eye is somewhere in between - and still subtle enough for a daytime look. The key to this look is to first draw the winged-out portion of your liner, then go back and fill in the rest. This way, you prevent an overly thick line/looking like Amy Winehouse {RIP, girl}. 

{I used a black shadow and a wet liner brush to achieve this softer look, but cream liners are a great product for an even more definition and drama. My favorite one is 'Caviar' by Smashbox!}

Do you have any beauty trends/tutorials that you'd like to see on the blog? Any burning questions about products? Leave a comment or shoot me an email - I would love any and all suggestions!


  1. love it! I'm too scared to do the cat eye, but maybe I'll try when I don't have to go out in public just in case :)

  2. SO PRETTY!! Love this!

  3. I'm such a fan of these beauty tutorials, Halle! They're lovely and original. I hope to see more.

    I also am quite the fan of the cat's eye, though I rarely wear it during the day. I may have to give it a shot since I'll soon be in a more creative environment! I tend to use my Stila Stay All Day liquid liner for definition, but I do need to play around with cream liners and eyeshadow-as-liner more. Most days I'm just a "grab it and go" person.

    P.S. I picked up a tube of Revlon Lip Butter when I was at Target yesterday. Love it!

    1. Thanks Jess! I love doing these types of posts, so hopefully they'll become a mainstay!

      Tell me more about this more creative environment you'll be in soon?! New job??

  4. All of these make up posts makes me want a Halle original make over. Next time I'm home, make overs all around!

  5. I think I need to have you come over and do my makeup. You have a much steadier hand with the liner than I think I ever will!
