I haven’t had the chance to do a makeup tutorial in a while, so I decided to try out the new makeup room and do one! It was actually a little difficult to apply my eye liner as usual because I usually apply my makeup standing up with my face mashed up against the mirror since I’m super blind. This time I tried sitting down like a civil human being and in retrospect it was a bad idea because it made my hand shaker and I noticed my line wasn’t as straight as it usually. That or I was just nervous to put on eyeliner in front of you guise. *blushes nervously*

Onto the tutorial! I love using crazy colours and having my eyeshadow act like an additional accessory to my outfit, but sometimes I just want to do a simple look so that I can play up my lips with a bright colour or so that I can use huge chunky accessories. So even though I called this a cat eye tutorial, it also includes my basic eye makeup look. I mention in the video that I’m using white (or sometimes a light pink) as my eyeshadow, but depending on your skin colour, you want to use an eyeshadow that is similar to your skin tone, but lighter. That way it makes your eyes look brighter and bigger but without drawing attention to the eyeshadow colour. Of course, if you want to draw attention to it, any bright colour will work perfectly with this cat eye look as well!

Now I totally know liquid eye liner can be intimidating, the first time I saw it I thought to myself, “only professional people can use that crazy stuff” but I realized that isn’t true, it just takes practice. I mention this in the video, but I’ll say it again: even when you’re not leaving the house or just before you take a shower, practice putting on your eyeliner. Everyone seems to have a different technique for what will work for them, so you need time to figure out what you’re doing wrong/right.

It also takes time to figure out which eye liner you like the best. I tried a couple different brushes before I found the Kat Von D tattoo liner “Trooper”, and even though I love the particular one I’m using, I don’t like her other liquid eye liners because they use a really stiff felt tip that doesn’t flex while I paint. Yes, I just referred to applying liquid eyeliner as painting. So before I buy a liquid eyeliner I usually try it out on my hand and see if I can easily make a nice steady not splattery line. Then I try out a couple more brands and after five minutes I run my finger over them to see if them smudge. Sometimes they claim to be smudge free and they just smudge instantly even after a good 5 minute break! Then I lick a finger and run that over my paint swatches and to see if they smudge with water. Yes, I look crazy when I shop for makeup, but who cares! Makeup can be so expensive and so different for each person that you really never know how it will work for you until you try it! Recently I recommend the Lee Hyori sponsored CLIO brand gel eyeliner to my friend Whitney because it works super awesome for me, it’s pretty cheap, and has awesome colours like neon green and purple, but after she bought it on my recommendation she said it smudged SO terribly on her! I’M SORRY WHITNEY! I WAS WRONG, FORGIVE ME! AHHHh AHHH AHH AHHHHH…파도처럼 부숴진 내 맘….wait…isn’t that a Big Bang song… Anyhoo, the point is you really never know until you test it.

So I hope the tutorial helps out, I’d like to hear other tips from you guise about your liquid eye liner mad skillz. NO! BAD autocorrect, stop trying to correct my spelling with a z at the end of it, it’s trendy didn’t you get the memoz? Geez. Also, what other tutorials should I do? A hair one perhaps? I know some of you liked my messy poof poof bun, but is that too easy? Let me know! Martina out! *pink smokebomb*

  1. This is the first tutorial I have been able to follow and copy for wings. It is particularly hard since I am blind as a bat without my glasses and have to get so darn close to the mirror to do it unless it is one of the rare times I wear contacts.

  2. So much work…

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  3. Thanks Martina! I’ve actually been wanting to ask you to do the ‘cat eye’ tutorial, but know that you are always super busy. I’ll have to try it out now!

  4. Thanks a lot for this video, Martina! I’ve been wondering how you get the wings so greatly done for quite some time now. I’m going to try and find out if your method works for my inconvenient lid form ^^

  5. ahahaha that thumbnail reminds me of Key and when he talks about how he’s seen female idols putting on their mascara, and they make a weird face in the process!!
    ….i don’t even know why i watched this vid…..i don’t wear makeup! haha!!

  6. Martine, you are totally like a magician…I fail at liquid eyeliner and have practiced many a times…but someday I will conquer the eyeliner and then the world will never be the same….muwhahaha.

  7. I can relate to your no eyelashes rage Martina! I have stubby light red lashes and even after i put on mascara they are so thin it looks like normal people’s lashes. *sigh* i guess it’s falsies for me :P

  8. i had a crazy idea…. post a video of simon doing a make up tutorial on april fool’s day. but i’m afraid it wouldnt be as funny if people read about the idea here…. so…. do something for april fools guise!

  9. Yaay! I’ve been waiting for this like forever… Thank you! :>
    But maybe someone can help me? My eyes are not really big and the skin around them is like really elastic so when I try to draw something beyond my upper eyelid (? don’t know if you get what I mean) the line gets stuck on some wrinkles that are made when my skin screeches. Any tips on how to deal with it? Maybe a base would help?

  10. Martinaa!!! i love your tutorials!! well i know this will be a question i should have asked in another video but anyway…

  14. thank you for your tip on buying makeup! you didn’t mention them in the video, but i think it will be very useful! my sister and i are planning to go shopping soon and i’ll totally try the liners on my hand first them lick my finger to test if they smudge. haha! even if you look crazy, at least now you won’t be the only one! :D

  15. uuuu my eyes aren’t symmetrical at all, so cat eye never works….. if only i were denzel washington…. super symmetry man!!

  16. Yeaah! I’m so happy you made another tutorial Martina! :D
    By the way I love how you guys wrote ‘Bourjouis’ instead of ‘Bourjois’!! xDDDD
    (‘Jouis’ means ‘to reach orgasm’ in french :p)

  17. Nice one Martina!! Nice trick, I’ll try it!! Cause every time I use liquid eyeliner, I do kinda look like Changmin when he mismatches his eyes….. (just not that pretty!) :)

  18. I have a dog called Trooper. I feel like I ought to buy that eyeliner simply because of it’s name.

  19. This is a great tip! Thank youu! :D
    I do have very long eyelashes… but they are ginger… so you can’t see them… so I need mascara even though I then look like I’m wearing falsies every day, hah. (:

  20. I use the same trick! LOL :D Find that a light grey shadow with an angle brush just lightly swipe the corner and BOOM! Cheat complete!

  21. OMG You look so sweet even without makeup Martina!
