International Cat Day

Here it is, everyone. The internet’s favourite day! (“Isn’t that every day?”, cat lovers cry). Luminaries such as the Guardian have been joining in the celebrations, with this call for underwhelming photos of “average cats” (as if such a thing exists), The Pool have chosen some “feline-themed” tracks, whereas the Metro has gone for the evergreen “What your favourite cat says about you?“.

So of course, I must join in, with the only skill I possess – propensity to wield an eyeliner brush for some, at times, frankly bizarre designs.

Today’s is no different. Due to feeling a little lazy about sketching an entire cat on my eyelid, I thought, why not just use my pupil as the albeit slightly more rotund body of a cat? Decision made, I whacked on a bit of pink over and above the lid, from the Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Acid Bright Eyeshadow, then carefully drew a head and some ears above my pupil with black liquid eyeliner (Bourjois, naturally), then under the bottom lashes, drew a little tail to the outer corner of the eye. I finished up by lining the lash line with some kohl, and finished up with some mascara!
