Creating smoky cat eyes is also not that difficult a process though it requires some amount of practice and patience. Smokey eye makeup is essentially an eye specific makeup application that highlights the brow bone while darkening the eye lids.

Most of the times creating smoky cat eyes, is all about applying your eyeliner properly. As mentioned earlier it does take some time and practice to get a well-balanced hand for proper application of an eyeliner. If you are beginner then it is always recommended that you start out with an eyeliner pencil and then gradually move on to other eyeliners.

In order to create smoky cat eyes you will need a black eyeliner pencil, dark eye shadow, a black eyeliner brush, an eyebrow pencil and black mascara. Begin with drawling a soft line from the corner of the eyelid towards the end of your eyelash line. After this you will need to use the eye shadow brush in order to apply the dark eye shadow over the smudged eyeliner line that you have already drawn. You can then draw a thick line on your top lid with the help of the brush eyeliner. The line should be preferably thicker at the outer corner of the eye. Using your eyebrow pencil you should now try and make your eyebrow curve more pronounced. You can then apply thin coats of mascara while allowing for the coat to dry in between the applications.
By following these steps you can create that perfect smoky cat eyes look.

Mascara along with lipstick is perhaps among the most loved cosmetics as far as women are concerned.Mascara can make eyelashes look longer and thicker while at the same time making your eyes look fuller and attractive in next to no time. Till the arrival of waterproof mascaras there was the problem of mascara coming off whenever it made contact with water. With waterproof mascara all these problems are a thing of the past. Women can wear waterproof mascara to the beach and pool with the confidence that they will not flake or smudge easily. Waterproof mascaras are also great for the summer and rainy seasons.

How to Apply Waterproof Mascara

Whenever you apply waterproof mascara make sure that the mascara covers your eye lashes from the root to the tip. If you want to apply any other eye-make up you should ensure that you curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before you do so. Shorter mascara brushes are always preferable since they would give you more control which is essential, especially when you are applying mascara at the corner of your eyes.
Choosing Mascara Colors
There is wide variety of colors that you choose from when it comes to waterproof mascaras. A good choice would be the latest colored high impact mascaras which make a bold fashion statement. For a much more natural look you should always match the color of your mascara with that of your hair. For example, blondes would always look good in a browner shade while black would perfectly suit brunettes. The right colored mascara, if applied properly, can make you the cynosure of all eyes, whatever the occasion.
