In this tutorial, I have a two-toned ombre cat eyeliner using the classic black and plum eyeliner. The cat eye starts off first as plum then wings out to black in the end. It's subdued enough to be worn in weddings or formal events yet it's got an interesting twist to it. You can use the eyeliner technique alone without eyeshadow but if you want to use eyeshadow or a full face of makeup either you feel inspired to put on makeup today or you just want to feel better, check this tutorial out. The warm gold scheme of the eye color contrasts well with the plum eyeliner so the plum stands out because otherwise, nonsense. Maybe you can't use this for your passport photo, but for a wedding, maybe.

What You Need:
(I indicated the brands I used in the parenthesis. Feel free to use other brands of your own preference)
- Eyeshadows (Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette)
- Black Eyeliner (L'Oreal Superliner Superstar)
- Purple/Plum eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Looking Good)
- Black Pencil Eyeliner (Urban Decay24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion)
- Charcoal Pencil Eyeliner (Eye of Hours eye pencil in Charcoal Obsidian)
- Eyeshadow primer (NYX Eyeshadow base)
(Note: I did already my base, brows, contour, cheek color, and lip color here, so let's go straight to shadow)
Finish off your look with some mascara on curled lashes. Apply falsies if desired. Finished!
Take this look to your next event or party. It's a way to introduce colored liners to your makeup kit, accompanying them with a basic black or charcoal and an otherwise neutral eye. The wing tip does take a lot of challenge getting even and I really took a long time there. If you have any wing tip tricks to get both sides even, do leave them in the comments below. Enjoy this new look for the new year!
