Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Cat Eyes

I’m no pro makeup artist. But there’s one beauty technique that I’ve got down pat – the elusive cat eye. It requires patience and a steady paw…but once you put in a little practice, a ferosh fe-lined eye isn’t far off.

Besides practice, high-quality/easy-to-use products are the key to this look. I used three CoverGirl products to achieve this purr-fect cat eye.  It was easy, breezy and beautiful – if I do say so myself. Here’s how I did it:

1)      Apply the silver end of CoverGirl Smokey ShadowBlast – Onyx Smoke all over your lid – from the lash line and up past the crease. Also use it to trace the inner corner of your eye to make your peepers pop.

2)      Line the top lid using CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire. At the outer corner of the eye, curve the line up slightly. Figuring out the angle of the “flick” can be kind of tricky, so here’s a tip: aim for the point where your brow ends.

3)      Apply CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire to the waterline of the lower lid.

4)      Create fierce fringe with CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara. This mascara is amazing, y’all. It features an innovative curved brush that lets you load up the volume without the clumps, even after 30 strokes!

See how simple it is? With these three CoverGirl products, you can go from “I don’t know how” to MEOW!

Wanna re-create my look? Shop the P&G eStore and get $3 off two CoverGirl products OR get a FREE Cat Eye Look (which includes LiquilineBlast Eyeliner – Black Fire, Smokey ShadowBlast – Onyx Smoke, and LashBlast Volume Mascara – Very Black), when you spend $69.

Get Those Naturalizer Boots Already!

Last week, I waxed poetic about Naturalizer boots and shared a 20% off coupon code so that you could affordably adopt a pair (or two).

This week, Naturalizer decided to top themselves by offering 20% off all boots – PLUS an extra 15% off AND free shipping!!!

The Juletta boots (above) were originally priced at $179.99. With the 20% off, they are 143.99. But by entering promo code UWINT29A at checkout, you save another $21 for a grand total of $122.39!

Seriously, what are you waiting for? Be a dear and give some Naturalizer boots a good home.
