Challenge: Felines — Kstelin, Rashmi, Jo, Anita, Luna, Rosa

I have six more lovely takes on the feline theme for September!ย  There is so much diversity, and I love how different each look is from the next.

Check them out!


KSTELIN makes videos on YouTube and loves to watch videos. She’s also a fashion student!

INSPIRATION: “The inspiration is quite simple, basically I wanted to create a look that elongated the eye and make my eyes look more cat like. I added the double wing because it looks almost like a tiger stripe!” — Kstelin

EYES: She used MAC Burmese Beauty Eyeshadow Quad, Revlon Black ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner, Revlon Black Brown Color Stay Pencil Eyeliner, and Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara.

LIPS: She wore MAC Peachstock Lipstick.

FACE: She used Bobbi Brown Natural (4) Skin Foundation with MAC Blot Powder to set and MAC Personal Style Blush on cheeks.


RASHMI is a mother of a 2.5 year old son, and she just started writing a blog with the great support of her husband who admires her for pursuing and writing about her passion. She thanks him for all of the support and love!

EYES: She used Benefit Honey Bunny Creaseless Cream Shadow, Clarins Iris Blue Eyeshadow, MAC Embark Eyeshadow, MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow, Sonia Kashuk Indigo Gel Eyeliner, and MAC Zoomlash Mascara.

LIPS: She wore Dior Backstage Pink Lipstick on lips.

FACE: On cheeks, she wore Lancome Brun (08) Blush Subtil.


JO is a twenty-year old English student and beauty addict who hails from England.

INSPIRATION: “Little secret.. I’m super allergic to cats ! I was inspired to do this look by the Russian Blue, just googled cat breeds and as soon as I saw it I immediately thought ‘Knight Divine’! I never really wear grays so thought it was the perfect opportunity to play around. Ended up with a strong smoky eye and neutral everything else. I used some white and silvery highlight colours as the Russian Blue comes from a cold climate. And yeah! I think I might actually wear this look out tonight.. I’m surprised how much I like it.” — Jo

EYES: She used MAC Painterly Paint Pot, MAC Silver Ring Eyeshadow, MAC Knight Divine Eyeshadow, MAC Carbon Eyeshadow, Rimmel 100% Black Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner, Topshop Coal Kohl, MAC Shroom Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Polyester Bride Eyeshadow, YSL Singulier Mascara, and Dior Blackout Mascara.

LIPS: She wore MAC Hue Lipstick with NARS Striptease Lipgloss on top.

FACE: She used Benefit That Gal Primer, Chanel #32 and 50 Vitalumiere, Benefit Boi-ing Concealer, YSL Touche Eclat, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, MAC Harmony Blush, and MAC Shroom Eyeshadow.


ANITA is a busy mom of three young children and a self-confessed makeup addict. Her favorite brands include MAC, Dior, Guerlain, and Urban Decay. She loves anything colorful, sparkly, and shiny. She writes her own beauty blog in her spare time.

INSPIRATION: “It’s nothing adventurous, but it was certainly inspired by cats’ eyes, which I tried to re-create with the help of the new MAC liquid eyeliner.” — Anita

EYES: She used Barbara Daly for Tesco eyeshadow base, Laura Mercier Baked Eyeshadows in Sterling (all over lid) and Champagne (below browbone), Laura Mercier Sequin Eyeshadow in Sterling (in crease and outer corner), MAC Pearlglide Eyeliner in Industrial on lower lashline, MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Marked For Glamour on upper lashline, and Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara in Smoky Noir.

LIPS: She wore Laura Mercier Stick Gloss in Azalea.

FACE: She used Avon Magix Face Primer, Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation, Maybelline Dream Matte Pressed Powder, and Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink Mosaic on cheeks.


LUNA is a makeup lover and a bit of a science geek. She loves dramatic looks, with her favorite style being the 1920s era. She does makeup tutorials over on YouTube.

INSPIRATION: “My inspiration for the look was a character from True Blood: Lorena. Her character has a lot of rage and passion and her overall character is very powerful.” — Luna

EYES: She used MAC Sketch Eyeshadow, MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow, and MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow.

LIPS: She wore MAC Nightmoth Lip Liner and MAC Chock-ful Mattene.

FACE: She used MAC Emote Blush and MAC Fever Blush.


ROSA is a student in the Bay Area who loves art, makeup, and music. She enjoys reading Grimm fairtyales and has her own blog.

INSPIRATION: “My inspiration was my little tuxedo cat Zorro. She is black and white with big gold eyes.” — Rosa

EYES: She used Urban Decay Primer Potion (all over lid), MAC Black cream color base (on lid and blended out), Concealer (on inner corners and brow bone), MAC Carbon (over Black CCB), MAC Modest Tone (over the concealer and blended into Carbon), Knight Divine (in the crease and blended into Carbon and Modest Tone), TKB Jade Green (lightly dusted over inner part of Carbon), TKB Hilite Gold (with mixing medium in the center of the lid and lightly blended out), TKB Pearl White (over Modest tone in inner lid), and Vanilla pigment (over Modest tone on the brow bone).

  10. DJ

    I love how striking Luna’s eyes are!

  11. Elysia

    wow everyones is great! I think that Kstelin’s is my favorite. I makes me kinda wanna get that quad…

  12. Love Jo and Rosa’s looks!

  13. K Stelins look makes me happy. i just got UD Lounge, which is a dead ringer for the reddish-brown with green duochrome in the Burmese beauty quad. I thought of getting he whole quad, but that was the only color that really hit me over the head. I’m curious if she used a primer. I think my UD PP is drying out(I depotted it a WAYS back) and whatever she did REALLY holds the teal sparkle. SO pretty!

    Kstelin, Jo and Luna pulled off their looks beautifully…Kstelin definitely has some skill..Notice how the liner is a pointed tip near her inner tear duct…and the double stripes…wish I could do it

  15. OOhh Kstelin the double wing is so hot, and don’t you just love the Burmese beauty quad? Rashmi I’m, diggin on the smokey eye on you. Jo your playing around worked! You look gorgeous and ready for a night on the town.Anita that blue is perfect for a cats crystal blue eyes. Isn’t the new Superslick MAC eyeliners amazing? I love them. Luna drop dead gorgeous! You have a new youtube subscriber here. Rosa your skin I wish I had. The dark gold and light blue on your eyes are such a pretty combination. I am not a makeup guru by far, and with that said I am totally stealing some of these looks. Thanks Christine for doing this. Keep the beautiful ladies coming!

  16. Melissa (divinem)

    Love that double wing! I’m so horrible at liquid liner application. I’ve given up and just wet my eyeshadow, which is much more forgiving.

  17. Katt

    <3 Luna – major love!

  18. Courtney

    Oh I adore Kstelin’s! And I’ve been wanting to do a look like Luna’s for this weekend and now I have some guidance. Awesome!
