Get The Cat’s Eye Look: Nuance
In honor of “Puss in Boots” reaching #1 at the box office this week, celebrity makeup artist Mickey Williams (also an expert member of the CVS/pharmacy Beauty Board, Facebook.com/CVSBeautyClub) has put together a purrrfect cat-eye look using Salma Hayek’s new beauty line, Nuance Salma Hayek, available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy stores and online at www.cvs.com.
Here are Mickey’s tips and product picks to get a come-hither cat eye!
- EYESHADOW: Start with a shade that is subtle, complementary to skin tone and can blend naturally to bring just a touch of color – you don’t want to overpower the look’s liner and lashes. Try Nuance Salma Hayek Mineral Eyeshadow Duo -Moonstone/Shimmering Sand ($8.49), a neutral that’ll work well on anyone.
- LINER: To create bold, dark lines around the eye, use Nuance Salma Hayek Lasting Wear Gel Eyeliner – Black ($9.99), which goes on with the ease of a pencil and as smooth as a liquid liner. To create the signature cat eye look, extend the liner past the outer corner of the eye on both top and bottom lids, creating a sharp point that ends about ½ inch from the corner of your eye.
- LASHES: To finalize the bold eye look, coat lashes with a mascara that will provide length and volume, like Nuance Salma Hayek Full Effect Ultra-Volumizing Mascara – Black ($9.79). You’ll only need one coat to pump up the volume!
- LIPS: Complete the look with a natural-toned lipstick, like Nuance Salma Hayek Color Vibrance Lipstick – Shimmering Nude ($9.99), which provides bring subtle shimmer and extra moisture for lips while keeping color to a minimum (and keeping the focus on your eyes!).
