Apply Cat Eye Make Up For A Sexy Or Casual Look

Easily create the sexy cat eye look that Cleopatra wore. Eyeliner and mascara are all that’s needed with these step by step instructions from Janette, a professional makeup technician who specialises in brow tattoos.

Cat eye makeup has been around for hundreds of years. Cleopatra is the most well known historical female to flaunt this sexy style. Angelina Jolie and Amy Winehouse have each put their own spin on cat eye makeup. So, youve seen movie stars walk the red carpet and models walk the runway with this look, and now, with a little practice, you can sport this dramatic look as well.

Liner and mascara are the tools youll need to create this look. Whether its moving day, taking the kids to school or going to the club, cat eye makeup can be just as versatile.

Choose Liquid or Pencil Eyeliner

First, decide if youre going with liquid or pencil liner. If you want the quick casual look of going for a gallon of milk, start with pencil liner. Once you get the hang of it and feel more daring, get the liquid liner out and go bold! Go with black liner. If youre going for the cat eye look, dont try a brown-black. Black is flattering and striking.

Getting Started With Eye Shadow

Once you decide on your liner choice, prepare your eyelid. Neutrals are a good choice to start out. As a general rule, the eyeshadow should be just a shade lighter than your natural skin tone. Once you get the hang of it or if you want to go bold, you can use a darker or more colorful shadow. Sweep the shadow over your entire eyelid prior to the eyeliner.

If you choose to use a highlight color, apply it now. Your highlight color should start below the inner portion of the brow. Following the natural arch, apply your highlighter by moving your brush outwards along the underside of the brow.

How To Draw Your Cat Eye Line

Now to the eyeliner. Start at the inner corner of the eye and lightly brush the eyeliner across the lashline toward the outer corner of the eye. Draw the line as close to the lashline as you possibly can. Less is more. You can go over this same line again to fill in any gaps or make the line thicker. A tip Ive learned is if you tip your head and look up toward the ceiling, then down at the mirror your eyelid will close enough to give you a somewhat flatter eyelid.

As you get toward the edge of the outer corner of your eye, slightly turn the liner upward toward your temple. A trick I use is to pretend that Im extending my lower lashline towards my eyebrow. Experiment with how far you go up toward the temple. Fill in any gaps with the eyeliner.

Whether or not you do your lower lashes is totally up to you. If you do, just apply the eyeliner to the lower lashes as you normally would. No need for anything fancy.

If you have a magnifying make up mirror, because it gives you the appearance of a larger canvas, it can help until you feel more confident with your eyeliner. Another helpful tip would be to set a mirror on the counter and rest your elbow to steady your hand.

After you get your eyeliner applied, lets work on the lashes. False eyelashes are perfect for a striking and stunning look. Dont want to do the false eyelash thing? Get your eyelash curler, hold it for 10 12 seconds and apply bold blackest black mascara. Let each coat dry before applying a second coat.

Dont panic if you dont like your first results. A cotton swab dabbed with eye makeup remover can be used to remove any mistakes.

When a Man Loves a Woman; the Catilyn Jenner story

Last year the world saw a man who loved a woman so much that he became that woman. Bruce Jenner became Catilyn Jenner. Bruce was born a boy but he questioned his sexuality from childhood, he questioned it and what the society would think. He then plucked the courage to become the woman he loved.

heart-762564_640Best Answer:  Bruce became Caitlyn Jenner, taking an outwardly recognizable female identity. However, his gender is still male. He is under an umbrella term called “transgender,” meaning people born with a gender identity, gender expression or behavior that doesn’t conform to the sex which they were assigned at birth. With this explanation you can decide for yourself whether Caitlyn is a woman or a man. Psychology or physiology?

Bruce Jenner. I have never really thought about whether i am for him or against. ive been too busy thinking of what other people think. Bruce Jenner has always questioned his sexuality. Even from when he was a child. he got interviewed about it and he said ‘ when i was little, i use to dress up in girls clothes alot” Bruce Jenner has always been the type to be feminine.

We are always hearing about the LGBT community but the most outspoken are the L and the G. Catilyn Jenner brought an awakening for the transgender community.

 Jenner’s rebirth as Caitlyn was the most visible high point of a banner year for the transgender community. The Secretary of Defense called the ban on transgender people’s open military service “outdated” and directed that the policy be reviewed. A measure to add nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people to the Civil Rights Act was introduced in Congress with nearly 200 co-sponsors. And critically acclaimed shows like Transparent that feature transgender story lines with respect and depth have chiseled away at the stigma of being trans. These gains come as the LGBT-rights movement has been advancing at a speed unthinkable just a decade ago. And this year, spurred on by young people more eager to challenge gender stereotypes than any generation before them, it seemed the T was finally getting the attention advocates have pursued for decades.

Catilyn Jenner is now a global name. it could be due to the fact that  he starred in the Kardashian reality TV Show. But there are other trangenders who fought tooth and nail to be recognized. They were there before Catilyn.

A transgender woman has won a protracted legal battle for a name change on her examination certificate in a ruling that potentially sets a precedent for other minorities seeking similar alterations from government agencies.

Audrey Mbugua had asked the court to compel the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) to change her name and delete the “male” gender mark from her KCSE certificate.

“The Constitution urges us to treat people with dignity and  such human dignity goes to the heart of identity which often can be violated by humiliation and denial of rights,” the judge said. He said that for Audrey to feel “whole” she must be accepted as she is and that denying her the right to change her names on the certificate would amount to a violation of fundamental human rights and liberty.
