Makeup Tutorial: Smokey Cat Eye (featuring Too Faced's Chocolate Bar)

Hi everyone!
As promised, today I want to share to you the smokey cat-eye look featuring the Too Faced's Chocolate Bar palette (check out the review here! ^^

P.S.: this is the last pictorial I did with my brown hair, school asked me to dye it back to black TT do you like me with brown hair as much as I do?

First thing first, as I have always said on my previous tutorials, start off with your skin care routines (moisturizers, sun block, etc.). Apply primer evenly and top off with BB cream or your favorite foundation. Don't forget to conceal any flaws and set both your BB cream/foundation and concealer with face powder lightly (brush usage is recommended). Dab more powder using sponge onto the spots where it gets oily easily (T-zone, eyelid, etc.) and over your concealer. Contour your face for more defined look using powder contour kit so it doesn't looked like it's overdone (simple contour tutorial here).

Shades used:
Champagne Truffle
Strawberry Bon Bon
Milk Chocolate
Cherry Cordial

P.S.: excuse my messy eyebrows, forgot to trim them before making the tutorial ><

Use subtle pink blush for the cheeks and apply it in triangular shape. I'm sorry that I forgot to take a picture of it TT

Apply red lip tint lightly and top it off with purple/violet lip tint.

You can always add another thin layer of loose powder to keep your makeup more long-lasting ^^

Tips and Tricks

1. Create defined V shape on the outer V of your eyes for more cat-eye effect.
2. Draw thicker eyeliner to add the bold effect and wing it out in-line with the V shape of your eye shadow.
3. Never forget your primer for long-lasting makeup.
4. Do not use wing-type fake eyelashes since it would make your eyes looks "longer" than it should be.
