Bright & Early: A Daytime Cat-Eye Makeup Tutorial

It’s no secret that we love color and statement styles, but, it’s not only fabrics, silhouettes, and accessories that make a statement. Sometimes, we let our eyes do the talking. What better way to make ’em shout than to add a captivating, colored eyeliner to your lids? Time to leave the bright bag and shoes at home because, hey, your eyes are your greatest accessory after all.

Feeling intimated by adding colored lines to your eyes? No worries! Below, in just four easy steps, we’ve added a punch of personality to the classic cat-eye, creating a look that is at once subtle and striking — perfect for the freshest daytime look. Now, some may think that colored eyeliner is a better companion to your night-out ensemble. To that we say, “Let’s look to the bright side, any time!”

Step One

Start with a lightly prepped face. Taryn, our Promotions Associate Manager, is wearing her usual moisturizer and foundation.

Step Two

Add the first layer of eyeliner, starting from the inner corner of your eye and extending slightly beyond the edge of your eyelid. We used Precisely! Liquid Eyeliner in Black as the base for a sleek cat-eye that’s oh-so-easy to achieve.

Step Three

Using any bright color of your choosing, add the second layer of eyeliner just above (but also touching) your cat-eye with a thin brush. We chose an aqua blue gel liner as a fun contrast to her blond hair and monochrome dress! She’s wearing the pretty (and pocketed) Motif Belief Dress.

Step Four

Re-line your black cat eye to create a more clean definition between the two layers. Finish your look with bold black mascara, such as Lash-Minute Decision Mascara and soft pink lips, using something subtle, such as What’s All the Swipe About Lipstick in Taffy.

Voilà! Now you have colorful cat-eyes fit for any daytime fete. Celebratory brunches, garden parties, and backyard weddings await! Are you ready to embrace the prismatic?

About Jordyn

When she's not yell-singing how she feels à la Linda Belcher, you can catch Jordyn obsessing over birds, bolo ties, and anything Sailor Moon. At her chillest, she’s watching David Attenborough documentaries or reorganizing her plants and tchotchkes for the 57th time.
