Dear Jeremy Renner,
It’s been a while…
Okay, we’ve never actually communicated, but I quite enjoy writing you these letters and will continue to do so because 1) I have a tendency to babble, and 2) you’re so very, very hot.
Jeremy, I have a proposition for you.
Do you remember the Kelly Clarkson concert I mentioned going to last Saturday?
Of course you do. Well, since the show, I’ve been listening to a lot of Kelly’s music, and I’ve grown particularly fond of Don’t Rush, her new country duet with Vince Gill.
Here’s my idea: you, me, a karaoke bar and that song.
Awesomeness, right? You could gaze adoringly into my eyes as we sing the chorus (please!), but I should warn you — don’t be distracted by my cool cat eyeliner, with its extra little twist.
Yeah, it’s a new look I’ve been rocking all day long.
It’s like a regular cat eye, except with an extra, second wing running parallel to the main flick.
I saw it on the artwork for Kelly’s single, Already Gone, and thought, “Haaay! How cool is that?!”
And it wasn’t even that hard to do. I started with a regular cat eye using my favorite gel liner, MAC Blacktrack, and my go-to Sonia Kashuk Bent Liner Brush. Then, when I finished with the cat eye, I drew a tiny extra flick on each eye.
That’s it! Easy as pie.
Being a former makeup artist, you might be wondering why I opted to use Blacktrack instead of a liquid liner like LORAC Front of the Line Pro.
Well, J. Renn, that’s an excellent question.
I just find that gel liners are generally thicker and easier to control, but that’s me. With your background and steady, confident hands, you could probably use a liquid liner and get extra sharp, crisp lines.
Next time I try this, I think I might layer a liquid liner on top of Blacktrack, just for kicks.
Oh, and thank you for noticing the angle I used for the flicks. Yes, I purposefully drew them almost horizontally, as opposed to angling them up toward the ends of my brows. I did it because I felt like it gave the appearance of more elongated, feline eyes, mrrrrow!
Well, Jeremy, it’s been great talking to you again. Keep doing those push-ups, and feel free to stop by shirtless anytime. 😉
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
