MAC Fabulous Felines: A Cat Lady Tribute

Remember those March murmurs about a little something called MAC Fabulous Felines? Well, it’s still a few months away (August in the US; September internationally), but after Tabs spotted these fabulous promotional pictures yesterday, he insisted we do a tribute look.

Ya gotta love how Tabs smiles with his eyes. πŸ˜‰

The look didn’t turn out exactly like the tabby promo pic we used for inspiration, but I ended up liking the smokey gray/brown combo for the eyes.

Oh, and when I was fooling around with this today I think I accidentally discovered a new trick! Most of the time when I do cat eye liner, I draw a thick black line along my upper lash line and leave it at that. Today, though, for no particular reason, I added a line of white eyeliner parallel to the thick black eyeliner and set it with a shimmery golden beige shadow patted on top.

I kinda like how it turned out (yay/yea for random makeup experimentation!).

    Nice Karen! Love that white line above the black.

    And I must say, Tabs looks way more stunning than the MAC cat, his eyes glow! πŸ™‚

    Love it! Did I mention that I have to get the freakin’ quad simply because there’s a “Russian Blue” shadow, and that’s my cat’s breed? Oh hell yes. MUST HAVE!

  8. ooh yes tutorial please, I’m really loving this look. Very nice with the hand posing, they should swap you and Tabs with the original promo poster. Quick additional question, what’s on your nails? I’m eyeing that color like I eye the jar of nutella in my kitchen xD

    I had a Stouffer’s Fettucine Alfredo. I’m a sucker for it.

    I had a pretty good day. My two DVDs came in, bought 3 more at Target and got a new outfit for Monday. I start bowling on Monday so my mom said a new outfit was what I needed. There’s just one teeny tiny problem with my outfit–my skinny jeans are two big in the waist. Why doesn’t Target carry size 0’s for jeans? I had to get a 2 (the smallest size). It’s a good thing I know how to bring in the waists of my jeans (and I can hem them too!). I’d be screwed otherwise.

    How do you get both wings even with your eyeliner? I can never do it! It doesn’t help my right eye is a little different from my left eye!

    • Karen says:

      I do it by freehand now, but I had to practice a LOT to get there. In the beginning I used to use Scotch tape to help guide me… sometimes I still do!

  10. marisol says:

    Fabulous! You are inspiring me to work on this liner technique.

    I think it’s time for Tabs to get an agent.
