Guidelines for doing Animal Print Eye Makeup
The first step to applying any form of beauty innovation on oneself is to get acquainted with it. After all, it’s a new technique that may raise attention and even eyebrows too. So discard all the fears and inhibitions and get ready to present yourself in a new eye-worthy way.
Couple of things to remember while you go about doing animal print eye makeup. It is always preferable to use liquid eyeliner as sometimes pencil eyeliners can give a smudgy look which can be disastrous. Also it is important to decide on an animal print style that you want your eyes to flaunt. Knowing the common designs that are available, you can create a zebra print on a white base with black, wriggly stripes in it. Leopard print needs a golden base with black and brown spots on it. As for the tiger print, you need an orange base with black and white stripes drawn on it. That is why, first make up your mind on what kind of animal print you want to use as that will help you narrow down on the makeup colours that would go well with your eyes.

How to do Animal Print Eye makeup?
Though it is the job of professional artists, even you can do eye makeup using animal prints at your home. Buy good quality makeup and brushes if you want your look to shine throughout the day.
Step 1 – Eye Primer
In order to evade any form of creasing on the eyelids, you need to apply a primer first. Use a quality concealer to hide any flaws.
Step 2 – Eye Shadow
Now it is time to apply a coat of brown or yellow gold eye shadow around the crease area of your eyes. To further give the illusion of cat eye makeup, extend the eye shadow to the innermost corner of your eyes. This will give you the much needed smoky look to your eyes. Dab the shimmering and glittering yellow gold eye shadow to the upper and lower part of the eyelids.
