Soft Smokey Eyes by Beauty by Cat

Hey everyone, here's a look I used to attend the Little Black Dress event at Blue Martini, Orlando.

I wanted to use this opportunity to try some of my new Milani shadows that I haven't used before. Milani just recently came out with so many shades, but for this occasions I decided to go for the neutral tones and added a copper IMAN pigment just for fun. The final look can be described as soft smoky eyes and dewy skin. I really just wanted to make sure it didn't look too matte or over done, and more like a glamour face on a hot summer night. What do you think?

IMAN EYE-Con Collection Palette

Para Español da Click Aqui


Hi everyone! Today I’m happy to bring to you a review of the Eye-Con palette from IMAN. I’ve already written about their cream foundations (here) and now I’d like to show you some of their eyeshadows!
On the front panel of the collection it says, “From runway to red carpet to real life, now every woman can be an icon with this fabulous palette…inspired by the legendary looks created for Iman by her celebrity makeup artist.”
This Eye-Con Collection has twelve colors, an eyebrow pencil, one eye pencil and a sponge tip applicator. Each trio of eye shadows has a different name and are coordinated to match one another. There’s the famous smoky look, some neutral golden tones, a trio of warm greens as well as some cool violets.  All of the shadows have a satin finish (no matte).

My Weekend Nails: Cult Nails- Untamed

Cult Nails - Untamed 
Hi guys, take a look at this nail polish color, pretty isn't it? It's from the new Cult Nails: Coco's collection called Untamed. It's baby pink with a tiny shimmers inside.

I had the opportunity to buy it at an event last Friday and I was already wearing it by Sunday (I couldn't resist!) I'm actually still wearing it today and it has barely chipped; which has me very impressed with the quality but most of all I'm just so in love with this color!

*** Totally recommend it! ***
Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!

Beauty by Cat goes to RAW Orlando: Mixology

Last week Beauty by Cat was invited to attend the first "Raw:Natural Born Artist" event here in Orlando, Fl. This nationally known group focuses on featuring local art, fashion, music, movies, hair stylists, makeup artists, photographers and performers. and  I was more that happy to check it out! 


The event took place in one of my favorite places in downtown Orlando, the Abbey. The Abbey always has an awesome atmosphere and it was perfect for this event. They had live music on the stage and art exhibits all around for viewing. There were also body painters and artists showing off their work and painting right there as you walked around.
