Hey lovelies! Hope you all had a great weekend. It was another busy one for me and my husband but we managed to squeeze in a date night. We went to one of our favourite restaurants in town and then went for a late night stroll and enjoyed a tasty treat from one of the best gelato places in town.
I dolled it up for the date night with my go-to smokey cat eyes. I like the cat affect as it adds more "oomph" to the standard smokies and really elongate and compliment my eye shape. Next time you're slapping your taupe, gray, brown or black shades, try extending the outer corner into a cat eye shape and you won't be disappointed. Use a tape on the outer edge if you have to (I didn't coz I do this look a lot). But the key is to layer the colours gradually and blend first with a small brush (like MAC 219) and then buffing with a bigger domed brush (like MAC 217).
Hope you enjoy this look, have an amazing week :)

And here's the outfit of the day: Ck striped dress which is so stretchy and comfortable. I'm also wearing flat gray gladiator from Guess. Hair is just air dried and left to its natural wavy texture. It was too hot of a day to bother styling:
