Miaow! Going Fiercely Feline with Giorgio Armani Easy Chic Fall 2012 Collection

Have you seen The Dark Knight Rises in theatres yet? Don’t worry; I won’t reveal any spoilers. I will only say this: miiiaow! Anne Hathaway was incredible as Catwoman (and hello, fit body inspiration!). Of course, I must talk about the makeup. Catwoman rocked the smudged black eyeliner with gorgeous satin finish red lipstick, and I of course went away inspired by the beautiful makeup. The stunning lineup from the Giorgio Armani Easy Chic Fall 2012 Collection is perfect to recreate Catwoman’s look.


Get the Look

For the eyes, roughly line the upper lash line with a creamy black pencil (Waterproof Eye Pencil in 1 Granite Black).  Take an eye smudger brush and smudge the line into the lash line.  Start to outline the cat eye shape by dragging the liner past the outer corners of the eyes.  Next, apply a khaki taupe (Neo Classic Face & Eye Palette in Neo Black) all over the lid and just past the crease.  Blend out the edges well.  Smudge the same khaki taupe all the way along the lower lash line.  Then, take the matte black eyeshadow and with a pencil brush, run it along the upper lash line and blend along the shape of the wing.  Blend in towards the khaki taupe.  Using an eye blending brush, apply the browned peach blush just above the khaki taupe as a transition colour.  Highlight the brow bone with the shimmery champagne.

Line the top and bottom waterlines, apply mascara (L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer Mascara) to top and bottom lashes.

For the cheeks, apply the browned peach blush on along the top of the cheeks and blend up towards the temples.  Shade the hollows of the cheeks with a matte brown powder (MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow in No. 17 Espresso).

For the lips, line the lips (Annabelle Lip Liner in Burgundy) to prevent lip colour from feathering, then apply the lipstick (Rouge d’Armani in 408 Rosewood Red) straight from the tube.
