Inspired by François Nars’ work on the Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 runway, here is my take on the 80s cat eye look.

What I Used

* Rimmel Renew & Lift Foundation in #203 applied with MAC #109 Brush
* Anastasia Highlighting Brow Kit to fill in eyebrows
* NARS Lili Marlene Cream Eyeshadow patted onto the eyelid as a base
* NARS Bohemian Gold Duo Eyeshadow from crease to eyebrow bone
* NARS Night Flight Eyeshadow on eyelid and winged out
* MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack to line
* Taiwanese Fake Lashes on top
* MAC Sculpting Powder in Shadester on cheekbones for a sculpted look
* MAC Shaping Powder in Lightsweep along bridge of nose
* NARS Multiple Bronzer in Cap Vert on lips

  19. Thanks Michelle, the top is from Forever 21. Loves!!!

  20. Yay Pinklye! The NARS Night Series eyeshadows are all really pretty. I have more swatches here.

  21. Hi Phyllis,

    All of your eye looks are so perfectly blended! the fade out is perfect and i just can’t get the hang of that, especially on the outer corners, like in this look.
    Is there a certain brush or technique that you feel gives you that perfect degradation? (other than practice :)

  22. i was checking for the products youve used i couldnt find it i only found nars night flight eyeshadow i couldnt find NARS Lil Marlene Cream Eyeshadow and NARS Bohemian Gold Duo Eyeshadow are these products discountinued?

  23. Thanks Yael! Using the right brush is also very important. Try a fluffy brush like MAC #217 and remember to clean up any muddy areas with a flat brush dipped in foundation.

  24. Lisa,

    The Lili Marlene is still available at the NARS website but the Bohemian Gold might have been discontinued.

  25. i luv this look so beautiful

  26. great! much more wearable than the runway looks!
