Derek Lam's Cat Eyes


www.style.com


This look was seen at Derek Lam’s Ready-to-Wear Fall 2011 Catwalk Show. With the metallic eye and heavy brows that were used, this is not day make up. But yet it is casual, sophisticated, feminine and minimal without being boring.

You want flawless matte skin, the eyes are minimal but slightly severe using metallic silver and charcoal. The brows are filled in with a brow pencil to really emphasise them. The cheeks are contoured slightly with a few sweeps of bronzer, while the pout is toned down using a peachy beige matte lipstick. A nude lip will make the eyes pop even more.

Re-Creating the Look using Catrice Cosmetics

> Cleanse, tone and moisturize the skin.

> Before applying your foundation use a primer on the skin first.
> Apply Catrice’s Foundation and set with loose powder.

> Sweep a few strokes of Catrice’s Multi Colour Blush set opting for the darker colours.

> To really emphasise and define the brows use Catrice’s Brow Styling Pencil.

> Apply Catrice’s Made to Stay Long Lasting Eye Shadow in 010 first, apply all over the whole lid. Then take Catrice’s Made to Stay Long Lasting Eye Shadow in 030 and draw in a triangle shape on the outer corner of the eye lid, bringing it out just beyond the eyelid to give that dramatic cat eye look. Once the shape has been defined, fill in with the darker coloured eye shadow. Blend to take away the hard third edge, but retain an obvious triangle shape.

> Apply two coats of Evolution to Revolution Mascara in black to the top and bottom lashes.

> Using Catrice’s apply generously to the whole lip area using a lip brush.
