I don’t know anything about cat eye makeup except that it must be makeup that tries to copy the appearance of the eyes of a domestic cat. Common sense or cat sense 😉 I do know a bit about cat eyes, though.
Judging by the finished look women involved in the makeup business have decided that the cat eye has dark eyeliner around it with a “wing” projecting out of the outer corner. If I am totally wrong please tell me but it won’t make any difference 😉
Here is another picture of cat eye makeup:
This tabby cat has beautiful eyes which have that dark eyeliner and even the tabby pattern neatly extends from the outer corner of the eye:
A variation of the dark eyeliner around the eyes of many cats is the purebred with “spectacles”. Women in the makeup business don’t refer to this interesting variation and perhaps they should. I am referring to the eye makeup of the Toyger, as one example.
Cat breeders use the language of makeup which I find interesting. It merges cat breeding and the makeup business. It is a bit sad really, isn’t it?
Breeders refer to “natural makeup”. They are referring to “white spectacles” (headlights or white fur around eyes) and “black mascara” (dark lines like mascara around the eyes). They even refer to “lipstick”, which should be around the mouth.
Here is a picture showing the enhanced Toyger makeup look 😉 The white fur adds contrast to the dark eyeliner which is the pigmented skin around the eyes (the eyelid).
I’d like to see another video on YouTube showing how to do Toyger makeup, which will be all the rage and “trending”.
