Hello everyone! Today I don't really have a tutorial per se but I came across an image, and when inspiration strikes, you roll with it, no? One time, I was having a conversation with friends as to what our spirit animals were. My choice? An ocelot. My reasoning? They're little, cute and scrappy (like me!) And Salvador Dali owned one, what more could you ask for? I'm also a bit of an art history nerd, with a huge love of the Surrealist period. In case you couldn't tell, I'm a bit of a crazy cat lady (animal lover in general) so I was looking at some ocelot images, and thus this exaggerated cat eye was born.

I mean, look at that face!
I wanted to do something that was still wearable so no spots, at least not yet. I decided to go with gel liner, because liquid liner irritates me when it gets too close to my inner eye. As for the lip color, I went with MAC Boyfriend Stealer (coming soon!). Also in the pic above, I'm wearing Benefit Fake-Up as my under eye concealer, which is new product I've quickly fallen in love with. But more on that later...
