Angelina Jolie Inspired: Cat Eye and Full Lips

This is a toned down, more wearable version of the cat-eye look inspired by Angelina Jolie's everyday makeup!  It's also very similar to what I wear most days actually...I guess I just like the neutral lip/dark eyeliner look!  Here's how to get a sexy cat-eye and fuller lips without going over the top:


Products Used


Eyes - I start off with a base of MAC's Prep+Prime for Eyes in Medium.  I apply that using my ring finger all over the lids.  This will keep my eyeshadow and liner from creasing or smudging during the day.  Then using a fluffy brush I sweep a neutral shimmery eyeshadow all over the lid for a natural "open eye" effect.  I use Kiko's Highly Pigmented Eyeshadow in #80.  This is the only eyeshadow I use, as Angelina doesn't usually define her crease or use much else on her eyes.  Her eye shape is quite hooded, so crease shadows have the tendency to look aging which is why we skip that step.  Next I apply a black liquid liner along the top lids, bringing it out a little further than the lashes.  I use Maybelline Line Definer.  Then using a pencil liner (Impala's waterproof one) I line the outer corners of the lower lashline and waterline, and join up with the liquid liner to create the winged look.  I apply one coat of a volumising mascara to the top and bottom lashes.  Then I apply a second coat only to the outer top lashes to further emphasise the cat-eye.  I use CoverGirl LashBlast in black.


Lips - Before applying any makeup I moisturise the lips to create a good base with a lip balm.  I use Made From Earth's Citrus lip balm.  To create a full but natural looking lip, I line them with a neutral liner (I use Davis accent pencil liner).  I then apply a clear or very light pink gloss like Maybelline's Watershine lipgloss in Baby Pink.  This gives a plump, full lip effect without looking overdone!


The finished look is very simple, neutral look which you can actually wear both in the evening and daytime!  For a more intensified look, skip the liner in the waterline and go for a brighter red lip instead.

Stay Stylish!
