Sultry leopard print eye makeup tutorial

 ^ My penguin face. 

Ever since I was little I loved leopard print.. I was obsessed with Lisa Frank. I guess I still am obsessed ;) I love my leopard print scarves, bags, nails, all of it. I thought this tutorial really expresses my makeup style and is really fun and edgy. I hope you enjoy trying out this makeup look. 

Start this look using a gold based eye primer. This helps the makeup last longer and also helps the colors we use later on look more bold. Pat the primer across your lid and up to your brow bone.

Take a bronzey copper color and foil it with either water or MAC fix+ spray to make the color more bold. Apply it to the outer corner and stop when you reach the inner third of the eye. Fade the color out and be sure to blend any harsh lines.

Take a gold color and apply this color to the inner corner of the lid using a flat brush.

Using an ultra fine liquid liner, start creating the small leapard prints by creating small "C" shapes. Create as many as you like depending on how dramatic you want the look to be. You can bring it all the way up to the brow bone, bring it to the lower lash line, whatever you like :)

After you have created enough C shapes to your personal taste, take your liquid liner again and add small dots inside of the spots.

Now take an angled eyeliner brush and some gel liner and line your upper lash line creating a cat eye flick at the end.

 Next line your lower lash line and create a flick at the inner corner(skip the inner corner part if you are a beginner, as it is very challenging)

 Take the gold color we used earlier and apply this to the lower lashline.

 Apply mascara to the upper and lower lashes to finish the look.

  Me being silly :)
