Confession, ever since I created this bronze cat-eye look for Jill from The August diaries, I have rocked it on myself for practically every Holiday party I've attended. There is something so simplistic yet elegant about this bronze eyeliner. I just can't get enough. Take a look below at the third look in the Holiday Makeup Tutorial Series photographed by Britney Gill.

I am a tad obsessed with all things gold and bronze, especially when it comes to eye makeup.
Since I am also a fan of a clean look and a simple cat-eye, I thought it would be fun to test out a new eyeliner I picked up and create this bronzed eyeliner look.
3 Tips to your perfect cat-eye
Find your shape. With the eyes open, map out with a bit of shadow where your wing will be. Not every eye shape is the same and some eyes are easier to do this look than others. Generally you want the “wing” to point towards the end of your eyebrow.
Use the right products. When doing eyeliner, make sure to use a product that applies smoothly. There is nothing worse than trying to get a straight line while dragging your liner along your eyelid.
Clean Up. No one, not even makeup artists will get the perfect flick every time. Luckily there are pointed q-tips and makeup remover. Very lightly clean up the edge of your wing for a more defined line.
