Get the Look: Janelle Monae’s BET Awards Cat Eyes

2013 BET Awards - ArrivalsThe classic cat eye is an evergreen trend that always adds some extra glam to a look.

Janelle Monae brought a youthful approach to the classic trend by pairing it with her flawless skin, coral lips, and her signature pompadour.

To create her striking eyes, makeup artist Saisha Beecham patted COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel over her entire lid.

Then, from the crease to the lashline, she applied the lighter shade from the COVERGIRL ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire.

Next, Beecham defined each eye with a clean line of COVERGIRL Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus in Black Ink across the top lash line and then flared out into a subtle wing at each outer corner.

The same liner was then applied to the lower water line.

Finally, several coats of COVERGIRL Flamed Out Water Resistant Mascara in Black Blaze were applied to the lashes for a gorgeous feathered effect.

    Great! Now that I have the makeup look down, next I have to figure out how to master the hair-do! (Hahaha–pretty sure not in my lifetime, unfortunately.)
