I’m so excited for Makeup Wars this week. We are all sharing with you the beautiful Too Faced Cat Eyes Eye Shadow & Liner Collection Palette ($36 US/$45 CAD) with a tutorial of our favourite look using the palette. It is going to be so interesting to see what kind of look everyone creates and how different (or similar) they will all be! You can see looks using the palette on all different eye shapes, eye colours, and skin tones. First let’s take a look at the palette.
I really love the packaging of this palette. It is a lightweight metal tin palette with magnetic closure. It feels very secure and the leopard print is so fun.
The three looks that Too Faced has created for the Cat Eyes Palette are Day, Classic, and Fashion. There are step by step instructions for each look in the enclosed How-To Glamour Guide that secures into the palette on top of the compact lids mirror.
The pigmentation of the eyeshadows is fantastic. The only shade that wasn’t super pigmented was Kitty Glitter but it still offered good pigmentation. The shadows are smooth with the wet/dry liner shades having a dryer formula. Even these dryer shades blended out nicely and were easy to work with. I’m really impressed with this palette. My only complaint is that, while I like it being separated into the three looks, having three really large sized base shadow shades seems a bit overkill. I would have loved to have seen more colours instead. Mind you having both a matte and satin shimmer base shade is a really nice touch that I wish more palettes took note of. I always use a matte base shadow from crease to brow followed by a touch of more shimmer under the brow bone.
I’m not one to follow instructions so of course my look is going to include more than 3 shades and be a mix of shades from various looks! I decided to go for a very dramatic smokey eye look. I love purple and copper together and this look, while it will flatter anyone, really accentuates both blue and green eyes.
Step 1 | Prep lids with Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer ($20US/$24 CAD).
Step 2 | Apply Meow from crease to brow bone using a large shadow brush.
Step 3 | Apply Tiger’s Eye on the lid using a tightly packed lid brush.
Step 4 | Apply Jungle Love dry on the outer third of the lid and lift it up slightly on the top corner using a small blending brush or small shadow brush.
Step 5 | Taking Jungle Love, again dry, softly blend it into the crease with a blending brush.
Step 6 | Blend out Jungle Love in the crease with a bit of Leopard, used dry. Only take Leopard to where Jungle Love starts to pull up on the outer corner.
Step 7 | Using an angle brush apply Jungle Love wet on your upper lash line as a liner with a slight wing.
Step 8 | After cleaning off your angle brush apply Leopard wet into the roots of your lashes on your lower lash line.
Step 9 | Using a detail brush apply Tiger’s Eye to your lower lash line.
Step 10 | Using a detail brush apply Kitty Glitter to the inner corner of your eye.
Step 11 | Using a fluffy lid brush apply Purrr lightly just under the outer part of your brow bone.
Step 12 | Apply two coats Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23 US/$30 CAD) and voila! You are done.
Given the very dark and dramatic effect of this eye look I went for a very natural flush of colour on the cheeks with a bit of Too Faced Chocolate Soleil ($30 US/$38 CAD) bronzer and Too Faced Raindrops on Roses blush. On the lips I went of a soft pink nude with the Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb! Moisture Plumping Lip Tint ($21 US/$25 CAD) in Bee Sting.
