Hi everyone! This video will be a tutorial on how to do this look. I call it the ‘Dramatic Gothic White to Black Extended Winged Cat Eye.’ Long name right?! Anyway, I hope you all can see this since the autofocus on the camera is kinda weird at times so hopefully it is mostly sharp. Also, I apologize if my face goes off the camera and you cannot see what I’m doing. It’s a really weird angle.
I always start off with this ‘Too Faced Shadow Insurance’ primer.
Then I use ‘Maybelline Color Tattoo 05 Too Cool’ for the white. I use these cosmetic applicator sticks that come with most eyeshadows. I go over to about middle or end of the eye so I can blend it with the black. I like it high so it can be seen above my eye crease.
For the black eyeshadow, I’m using ‘NYX ES01 Black’ and this ‘Ecotools Shade’ brush. I generally get the brush a little wet since it helps apply the eyeshadow easier and with less fall out. Then I gently extend it out. Don’t worry about unevenness or mistakes. That will be fixed during cleanup.
Now it’s time to blend, so I apply some black over the white. And, you can either use your finger or some kind of brush to blend. I am using the ‘Ecotools Smudge’ brush. Sometimes I extend the top part of the black over to give it added dimension.
Now time for the eyeliner, which finalizes the look. I’m using the ‘Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner.’ If you mess up, get a Q-tip and wipe it off and reapply the eyeshadow over top to cover up the spot. Then retry the eyeliner. I apply it on the top and bottom.
Now time for the point. Just extend it down following the natural curve of your eye. And connect it to the bottom.
For mascara, you can use anything you want. I am using the ‘Maybelline the Mega Plush Volum’ Express’ mascara.
Now time for cleanup which is your chance to fix mistakes.
For eyebrows, I start with the ‘Rimmel Soft Kohl 061 Jet Black Liner Pencil.’ So, if I mess up, I can easily erase it. When I have the outline, I go over it with this ‘Maybelline Blackest Black’ gel liner with an ‘Ecotools’ angled brush. I use the tip for sharp edges. I can never do them evenly. As long as they are close to even and they are thick enough, you won’t be able to tell all that much. The thinner they are, the more likely people will notice the unevenness.
So, I hope you enjoyed this video. Thanks for watching!
My very first makeup tutorial for a dramatic white to black cat eye look. I love dramatic makeup and I’ve gotten quite good at it in the short amount of time I have been doing makeup.
