The first person we ever think of when we say "Cat's Eye" is Cleopatra.
Angelina Jolie is also known for this.
And will you ever forget the late Amy Winehouse who flamboyantly displays her version?
For a quick makeup, this is one of my favorite things to do. I learned today the right way of doing this. It looks simple but it gets quite tricky when doing the tail. Here is my hands on work on my model, Kim.
- Swiftly flick or bend the tail upwards (outer corner) without breaking it or creating a "kanto"
- You can also create an extension in the inner corner of the eye for a more dramatic look.
I feel like this is most girls' favorite. Think like Kim Kardasian! Such a coincidence that the model assigned to me is named Kim. In school, they trained us to create the Smokey Eye (or any eye makeup) without "fall-offs" or getting specs of eyeshadow under the eye -which is so tough, wah! But we learned the proper way of application to create the Smokey Eye.
- Press the eyeshadow with your brush to avoid specs of eyeshadows falling under the eyes.
- Blend the edges of the eyeshadow upward to create the "smoke" effect.

This is the most challenging look to create. Avant Garde means "something new" or unique. This is know for creative and artistic application of makeup. Though most of these are extreme and experimental. Given the right tools and a lot of creativity, it will be easy for you to experiment. Best is to get highly pigmented makeup.
Here is my "try" on the Avant Garde:
Ok, she looked like she just got a smokey eye and the gold on her cheeks doesn't show that much. But I will surely practice on this!
Again, I feel bad that I only got 4 hours of sleep last night (which was a big mistake) and seems like my creativity juice has dried up (sa prisinto na ako magpapaliwanag!). ;p
