Graphic Cateye Tutorial using ELF Cosmetics

I have been seeing this look in almost ALL of the magazines I've gotten recently. I was bored and decided that I was going to recreate this look and make a tutorial for you! Products used: ELF Studio Blush in Berry Merry, ELF Studio Kohl Eyeliner, ELF Studio Volume Plumping Mascara, ELF Studio Brush set, ELF Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude, ELF Mineral Lip Gloss in Pageant Princess, ELF Essential Eyelid Primer in Champagne Step 1: You are going to need to prime your eyelid using ELF's Eyelid Primer.
Step 2: You are going to need to get a decent amount of the ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner on a "C" brush. Dab this on the whole eyelid, all the way up above your crease. You can use your "crease" as a guide. After you cover your lid, make a tiny wing that hooks upwards on the outer part of your crease.
Step 3: Take an eyeliner brush and get some more cream liner on it and smooth the hard edge line, so that it looks nice and even. You should also put more liner on your top lash line, to make sure there are no gaps. Also, take some product and smudge it on your lower lash line (and/or waterline if you'd like)to almost halway across the the bottom lash line.
Step 4: For those of you who use a pencil to line your waterline, use the Studio kohl eyeliner (or any black liner will do) and run it along your water line.
Step 5: Now it's time to put on the mascara! :) I am using ELF's Studio Vlume Plumping Mascara. If you would like more volume on your lashes, move your mascara wand in a zig-zagging (tiny and quick left to right movements) as you go upward with your wand. This will separate your lashes and coat them so much better than without doing so.
Step 6: For my cheeks, I am using ELF Studio Blush in Berry Merry. This is by far my favorite color of the Studio blushes. It's a pretty rose color, but it's buildable. Brush this on the apples of your cheeks, and follow your cheek bones all the way back to about 2-3 inches from your ear/hairline area.
Step 7 Use a nude pink lip color, (I am using ELF's Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude) and paint your pout. :) Then go over it with a lip gloss of similar color. (I am using ELF's Mineral Lip Gloss in Pageant Princess)
And Voila! This is the finished look! Fun, flirty, sultry and BOLD.
I really hope that you have enjoyed this tutorial! If you have any questions or comments, let me know! :)
