Get the look #4 – bareMinerals The Cat’s Meow

Happy Monday, Lookfantastic ladies! We’re starting off your week with the bareMinerals Get The Look week four, and today we’re introducing the slick and sultry ‘The Cat’s Meow’. This look is pretty understated, with a toned-down, nude eye and a sexy, feline, jet black flick of eyeliner that can be worn night or day. So without any further ado, allow us to take you through our step-by-step guide tutorial on how to achieve this look.

If you’ve been following our bareMinerals Get the look series, you’ll know, we’ve been hammering you with the all-important ‘apply your primer base first!’ rule. So, again, we’re going to tell you it’s absolutely essential that you do, as it sets the perfect base for your eyeshadow, allowing no room for flecks of eyeshadow to fall and smudge. For ‘The Cat’s Meow’ look, you’ll need the 5-in-1 Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in Soft Shell, which acts a primer and as a neutraliser for your eyeshadow base.

Next up, using bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Top Shelf, buff Mixologist onto your eyelids and then sweep Cognac onto your outer eyelids.

Add definition to your eyes by using Lasting Line Long Wearing Eyeliner in Absolute Black,to create a winged eyeliner look. Determine how high and far you would like your liner to be at the outer corner of the eye. Starting from the point, draw the line inward along the upper lash line, stopping at the inner corner.

Last, but not least, thicken the outer part of the line if you desire, then apply Lash Domination 10-in-1 Volumizing Mascara.
