Cat Eye Makeup Made Simple® [VLOG & GIVEAWAY]

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

After receiving positive feedback with the release of my first beauty vlog, I went to my Instagram to ask what other beauty tutorials you would like to see. I decided to help answer how to do eyeliner with a winged or "cat eye" look since it's my current favorite everyday look.

First things first, make sure you start out with a perfectly clean face. I will admit, I am TERRIBLE about washing my face before bed. I never used to be until I started working until 10:00 at night. I find myself time and time again falling asleep with a full face of makeup. That's why I'm loving these Simple® Skincare products, they work so quickly and effectively.

Now that you have a squeaky clean canvas to work with, check out my video tutorial on how I mastered the cat eye:


I'm glad to know that I'm not alone in my bad skincare habits. Nearly 9 in 10 (89%) women describe their skincare habits as “healthy,” yet their actual behaviors (a snapshot below) show there is room for improvement: 

• A Surprising Cleansing Calendar – More than a quarter (27%) report that the longest they’ve gone without washing their face is at least two days. The Simple® regimen is a cinch with gentle yet effective facial cleansers and wipes to remove grime and dirt that can clog pores and cause irritation. 

• Being Attentive to the Elements – Fifty-nine percent (59%) are not actively trying to protect skin 
from environmental elements such as the sun or wind. Women can apply Simple® Protecting Light 
Moisturizer with SPF 15 to help them prevent damage from sunburn (even on cloudy days). 

• A Serving of Glowing Skin – Though half (50%) claim they’re striving for a healthy diet 
specifically to keep skin in good shape, thousands of women are missing out on certain foods that 
could work wonders on skin, such as Brussels sprouts (68%), walnuts (62%), salmon (57%) and 
avocados (56%). 

• The (Skin) Effects of Stress – Sixty-three percent (63%) know that their stress level affects the 
health of their skin, yet more than half (53%) are not actively trying to reduce it right now. Making 
a dedicated effort to unplug and unwind can make skin less permeable to external factors like 
weather and makeup. 

• The Beauty Benefits of Working Out – One in two (50%) are unaware that exercise can 
influence their skin’s health. Exercise increases blood flow and helps flush cellular debris out of 
one’s system – contributing to the overall appearance of skin. 

Lucky for you, Simple®  is giving you (and me) the chance to turn those bad habits around and offering up a giant skincare prize pack valued at over $50.

Up for grabs:

Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer ($10.99); Simple Nourishing 24-Hour Day/Night Cream ($10.99); Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($10.99); Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes ($5.99); Simple Eye Make-up Remover Pads ($6.99); and Simple Foaming Facial Wash ($6.99)

  6. I am one of those people who go to bed with a face full of makeup because I am too lazy to go wash my face, and then I sometimes smudge day-old eyeliner for that "lived-in" smokey eye. *hangs head in shame*

  18. I'd love to see a tutorial for fair skinned, sensitive skin - maybe how to find a foundation that doesn't make us look orange? Or how to utilize eyeshadow so we don't look like circus clowns? A blessing of fair skin is that eyeshadow always looks bold, but it can look TOO bold...
