Simply starting out with my eye shadow primer, I applied that liberally all over the lid, up to the brow. Taking the Milani pencil, using it's nearly buttery texture, I roughly applied that along the lashline and created a cat-eye. Taking the MAC 219 brush, I smudged the unset liner up and just barely into the crease. Before the liner is completely set, with the same brush dipped into MAC's Black Tied, I pat the color into the liner to intensify the color and add a nice sparkle. With the MAC 222 brush in Cork, I rock that softly into the crease, mainly to map out where the crease is, adding a bit of definition to the eye. Then with the EcoTools paddle brush, I take Silk Teddy and from the tear duct to the mid-lid, I apply it. Again, taking the MAC 222 brush, this time in Black Tied, I lightly define the crease and smoke out the harsh lines, without letting the shadow pass the crease too much. Add a classic cat-eye above the lashline with Urban Decay's 24/7 Waterproof liner. Too Faced Heaven will highlight my brow perfectly, any flesh-tone will do. Taking a bit of primer on my finger, I run that right under my lower lash line. With an angle brush in Urban Decay's matte Black Dog, I line under the lashes. Nothing in the waterline, to avoid smearing and raccoon eyes. Lastly, to curled lashes, I applied Falsies.
What I love about this look is it's almost a fake-out. When your eyes are open, it looks like a plain eyeliner-heavy look, but closed, it's much more interesting!
