Kim Kardashian West’s makeup look for the recent 2018 Met Gala was my absolute favourite look – I know everyone has been obsessing over it and recreating it, but I simply couldn’t resist – as soon as I saw it I knew I needed to create a tutorial for a look inspired by this makeup! It’s a sexy smoked out cat eye, and I can guarantee it will instantly make you feel 10x more fierce.

Makeup of the Day: Shimmery Eyes & Glowy Skin

I’ve recently been loving shimmery eye looks, perhaps because I’ve been so in love with Stila’s In the Light palette!

On the eyes: Brown pencil liner (unfortunately the name has rubbed off) in the crease, Mac “Bare Study” paint pot, Stila “Kitten” & “Sandstone”, Mac “Brown Script”, Stila Stay All Day 24 hr liquid liner, Covergirl Clumpcrusher mascara.

Brows are Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in “Chocolate”.

Face: Mac Studio Sculpt foundation, Benefit Erase Paste concealer, Estée Lauder Ideal Light concealer, Cover FX Illuminating setting powder, Lancôme “Rose Fresque” blush, Mac “Superb” skin finish, Benefit “Hoola” bronzer.

Lips: Elizabeth Arden “Rose” lipliner, Mac “Morning Rose” lipstick.

As I have previously stated in my last Makeup of the Day post, I have been absolutely, head-over-heels in love with Stila’s “In The Light” Palette. While I do still plan on making an in-depth review post when I have more time, I have been experimenting with some of the different shades and textures. 

I typically gravitate towards brightness and shimmer, but for this makeup I thought I would go for more of a matte look.
