Tabs has been bugging me to incorporate his MAC Leopard Luxe goodies into a look. It’s his favorite one of the Fabulous Felines color stories, and he’s been going on and on about its warm gold, brown, peach and black shades. Today he said of the colors, “Meow, mrow mrroww ft ft,” to which I think everyone agrees.

Just because a look utilizes neutrals doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Take the standard cat eye, for example. They’re often done with black liners or other dark neutrals, and today I tried mine with a twist — a shimmery golden liquid eyeliner along the lashline. I wanted to spice up the look with glitter without going full-on disco.
Beginning with a basic neutral cat eye using a few colors from the Leopard Luxe eyeshadow quad — shimmery golden beige Wild By Nature on my brow bone, shimmery peachy gold Style Predator on the lid and shimmery brown Notoriety in the crease — I then drew a cat eye shape with shiny black Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in On The Hunt along my upper and lower lashlines.
To further define the shape, I lined my waterlines (both upper and lower again) with MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack and finished with glittery gold Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Pure Show along the upper lash line by itself.
I went with warm peach and coral colors for my cheeks and lips. That’s Mineralize Blush in Utterly Game (a shimmery peach) on the apples of my cheeks and shimmery peachy coral Lipglass in Wildly Refined on top of shimmery coral Cremesheen Lipstick in Drive Me Wild on my kisser.
Of course, if the thought of wearing gold liner makes you cringe and picture hot pink feather boas and glow sticks, you could always skip it entirely. Even without the gold, cat eyes are always in style.
