Cat Eyes

Monday, April 18, 2011

I have a confession: I'm awful at applying makeup, that is why I stick with basic lipstick or mascara. But this morning I got super inspired by this pretty girl, who not only wears my favourite lipstick colour but also has a cat-eye eyeliner on her top lids. Such a sexy look and it looks doable. What do you think, darlings? Are you good with applying make up? What products do you use? xo

I'm horrible. I missed the secret girl meeting where they teach you how to do this stuff. I love the cat eyeliner though. It looks doable...maybe.

She has very exotic eyes and pull off the cat eye beautifully. I am half asian so my eyes tend to be a bit slanted anyhow so a cat eye is not for me. :)

she is stunning! love this look. can't wait to try :)

Sara Szatmary said...

I think even someone with my lack of makeup skill could pull that off! Super cute!

Rebecca said...

The cateye look is one of my favorites. Perfect for when you don't feel like dealing with all the eye shadow. Very simple and ultra feminine. It's the red lipstick I just can't pull off. Maybe I just haven't found the right shade yet.

This is how i like to do my make up for nights out, clinique brush on cream eyeliner makes perfect cat eyes every time. :)

Nikki said...

I'm like Noodles and Waffles...I was too busy being a tomboy and was only briefly interested when my Mom bought me clear mascara in 6th grade ;)

Amy said...

ho NO, I hate trying to put makeup on.
I am the worst. I stick to the basics and don't try any funny stuff.
My sister totally got that gene, and she has the gift of it staying with her all day. My makeup leaves my face about 2-3 hours after applying, how does that happen....LOL

Oh I am rubbish at it. It would take me hours to do eyes like this. However I would love to be able to do eyes like this. Xxxx

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i've just decided i'm going to become this girl.

love the hair, love the make up.

Omgitstiffduh said...

I love cat eyes! I have been trying to perfect this look and I am SLOWLY getting there.

Diana Mieczan said...

Rebecca, try Bobby Brown in vixen red. It's such a great colour and you might like it.

Diana Mieczan said...

Zoe and Jillian, thanks for the clinque tip!

Liv said...

I'm halfway decent when it comes to my make-up, I'll nail the look on one eye and then struggle to replicate it on the other... as a result I look lopsided or like I have a lazy eye. Not ideal.

I'm a mascara and lip gloss kind of girl but I LOVE this look! I wish I could pull this off. That lip colour is so great!

va said...

well i enjoy being without makeup since i use all natural items and they are hard to find here in ndia so i order online .
i usually go without anything on my face unless I am to go out somewhere then I will use some eyeliner and mineral lipstick from Peace Keeper Cause-metics . I think of myself with a palette and i like to blend and mix well as if i have an artist's palette .

Hello D, This is the extent of my makeup on any given day. I love this lipstick shade, do you know what it is by any chance????

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I SO can't do the cat eye. I've tried but I can't seem to get it to look right :(

Rachel Kabukala said...

This is beautiful! I really love the bold, confident look of red lipstick, but I'm always to nervous to wear it out of the house. Every once in awhile I will get in a mood while I'm up working late at night and apply it right before bedtime, just for me. My husband finds this hilarious :)

this free bird said...

Diana I am so in the dark when it comes to applying makeup. I do exactly what you do...but would love to sport the look this girl is wearing. Lovely!

I always get in makeup ruts. It is so easy to put on the same face everyday, it starts to get so boring! I need to go for a consultation this summer to spruce up my look.
I love those red lips!

Megan said...

Usually I don't like cat eyes, but the pic you chose is pretty subtle, so I do enjoy it!!

I'm a mascara girl...that's all I need :)

La Feem said...

So cute, I've been wanting these eyes for a night out and it's just practice...sit in front of the mirror tonight with a few q tips next to you and do it!! xoxo

Staley Mc said...

I usually stay pretty basic when doing my makeup too but this looks so pretty on her!

Diana Mieczan said...

Thanks, Heather. Totally going to do that tonight!

Diana Mieczan said...

I find that so sweet, Rachel. I bet it feels so great!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

She is stunning! Love the cat eye and the red lip...Hope you are having a good Monday doll. xo

little t said...

Gorgeous- and looks so simple!!

Diana said...

Love her look, it seems simple but o so chic! The lipstick is gorgeous and so is her eye makeup. I dont put on much makeup either, usually just eyeliner on the bottom lid...and thats it! But for our wedding I actually did my own makeup and used Revlon Photo Finish...loved it!

Thanks for all the comments love! Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Diana said...

I am no good at applying makeup and would not even dream of trying this look myself, as pretty as it is. She looks super cute though!

the nyanzi report said...

That shot captured my imagination. Such a beauty.

Signe said...

I love this look and wear it quite a lot but only for nights out :)
Never have enough time before work! And I use a liquid eyeliner from dior to pull it off, it is actually quite easy if you have the proper equipment ;)

Hugs,
Signe

hi-d said...

I wish I could do the cat eye thing. I think I need a tutorial.

I love MAC makeup but also use some of the cheaper brands for mascara and lip liner/lipstick.

Hope you have a lovely day, Diana!

Brittany H. said...

I looooove to put on makeup! On myself, or any willing subject. I like the look on this pretty girl. It's classic.

How's your Monday?
You Are My Favorite

Styles 'n Cream said...

I love this look - so pretty - both the cat eyeliner and the bold red lips.

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

love it, I love lipstick and I love eyeliner so it's a winning combo for me.

Joy said...

I love doing cat eye and lip stain for everyday. Once you practice, it becomes easy, and you instantly look put together.

I have tried numerous times to get this look and it just never happens for me. I have shaky hands I guess

jenny @albeit... said...

Woo! loving the cat-eye and the red lips!!! So SULTRY!!!

Googlover/keishua said...

I love eye makeup but i have never mastered cat-eyes. I'll have to give it another try this spring.

Hogger and Co. said...

I love the cat eyes look; I just did a post about it myself :) Such a great day to evening look.

SJ said...

it's not as hard as you think. i put it off for ages as i figured it would be waaaaay too hard but then one day i went to Boots and picked some liquid eye liner and practiced a couple of times. the first couple of go's looked ok but now i can go it a lot better and much quicker.
i like that you look made up without having to put too much effort into it (e.g eye shadow etc which i'm not great with)

Ashley said...

i have to confess - i am obsessed with makeup but the cat eye is not something i've perfected. love this look!

Jess said...

She looks fabulous but I definitely need some instructions for that look! I typically use the bare minimum with my makeup!

Monica from Hola!design said...

I love cat eyes! so sexy...I'm pretty good with make up...I always wear blush..otherwise I look pale as a ghost.!!!

Vanisha said...

Hi Diana, it's bee a while. Haven't been feeling too great....I'm terrible at putting on makeup!(and it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who feels this way!) My favorite makeup brand in Chanel! I have quite the collection but no skill at all! Have a lovely week xoxoxo

Annie said...

I used to wear eye liner daily, but now I like mascara, blush and some lip gloss :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Lisa, Im not sure! Sorry:)

Oh, My Darling said...

I've started to rock the cat-eye liquid liner recently and love the effect!
