Sexy Smoky Cat Eyes Please

I have always thought Kerry Washington was stunning but this photo of her is off the charts! She is working that smoky look like nobody’s business and her almond shape eyes make them even more dazzling. Someone spent a lot of time making those eyes gorgeous and it shows.

kerry_washington-hoilday-smoky-eye.jpg

To get this look try a deep charcoal shadow and extend the color to the base of the brow bone as seen here. I call this a smoky cat eye because it looks like a smoky eye but has a point like a cat eye. You can use a softer shimmer shadow in a dark silver or one without shimmer depending on how dark you want the eye.

Make sure to really blend the color and for a little pop add a bit of gold or light bronze shimmer to the corner of eyes. Finish by lining the inside of your eyes with a black liner and two coats of black mascara, concentrating on the outer lashes.

For sexy cat eyes like these check out The Get in Line Eyeliner & Stencil Kit at bettesboutique.com

Keep your lips sheer so the focus is on your sexy cat eyes. Try Chasing the Cash liquid lip color from beth bender beauty, new from the Hollywood Nude Collection.

Sexy Smoky Eyes That Sizzle!

Kiera Knightley is really working these sultry and very sexy smoky eyes. This is such a great look for her and when she is gracing the red carpet you can usually find her sporting a gorgeous pair of smoky eyes. To get Kiera’s look try a shimmer eyeshadow in Aubergine and make sure to blend the color around the entire eye. Try Stila’s Barefoot Contessa, $16 at sephora.com or Beth Bender Beauty’s eye dust in All About Me, $16 at bettesboutique.com

Make sure to blend the color up into the crease of eye and highlight the brow bone with a touch of eyeshadow in a bone or banana shade depending on your complexion. Try Buttercream from Laura Mercier, $20 at sephora.com or Banana eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown, available at bobbibrown.com

keira_knightley-hoilday-smoky-eye.jpg

Finish with two coats of mascara, try Lash Injection, $19.50 from Too Faced Cosmetics. This mascara coats each lash from top to bottom and adds volume and length in seconds. It’s the perfect finish to compliment your gorgeous smoky eyes. As always for those gals who have trouble with a smoky eye we suggest the Get in Line Eyeliner & Stencil Kit from Beth bender Beauty, $36 at bettesboutique.com.

Holiday Eyes That Sizzle!

Ladies:

It’s that time of year again and the holiday parties are a perfect reason to have some fun with your make-up. Try a silver shimmer shadow (Double O Silver) $16, bettesboutique.com in place of a darker shadow when doing a smoky eye or just applying some color on the eyelid. As seen here on Jessica Alba who looks gorgeous. It makes the eyes pop and not much more is needed.

Jessica has added a darker line closer to her lashes for some extra pop appeal. Keep the brows clean and not to heavy. Try Gel Liner in Onyx, $16 at bethbenderbeauty.com and for perfect eyebrows may we suggest Anastasia’s Brow Ex-Press Kit, $38 at sephora.com. Her eyebrow stencils are the best for creating gorgeous eyebrows.

jessica-alba-holiday-eyes.jpg

For those gals who need a little something more, may we suggest adding a few individual lashes to the ends of each eye. They are easy to use and fit right into your own lashes giving them a much more natural look. Once the eyelash glue has dried, go over each eye with a coat or two of mascara concentrating on the outer lashes.

Keep your lips sheer so not to over power your sexy sizzling eyes. Try Happy Glam Gloss, $16 at bettesboutique.com. Also LORAC’s Guava Tiki lip gloss, $16 at sephora.com, a sheer peachy pink lip color.

Best Smoky Eye Kit For Women On The Go

I was waiting on line this morning at the grocery store and had a few minutes to skim through this weeks People Magazine. I stumbled upon a page of Smoky eye Kit’s from various cosmetic companies wondering where The Get in Line Stencil Kit was since it is the easiest and has the least amount of steps to achieve a smoky eye and cat eye that look just as fabulous.

So I decided to write and remind anyone in search of the perfect smoky eye kit to check out the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kt from Beth Bender Beauty, available at bettesboutique.com.

Just this weekend while we were away I brought a few Get in Line kits with me and gave one to each of the women there. In seconds they had done perfect cat eyes and smoky eyes.

It was so amazing and beautiful to watch their transformation and to see how excited they each were to have mastered what was once a difficult task.

Perfect Cat Eyes with The Get in Line Kit

How to get your cat eyes purrfect..

The Get in Line stencil kit is the quickest way to get sexy cat eyes in minutes. The stencils are made from a soft PVC plastic to fit any eye shape. Cat eyes have been seen everywhere from the runway, to fashion ads, to the long list of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Eva Mendes and Rhianna, who can usually be seen sporting one.

To use the stencils and create a sexy cat eye on yourself simply place the stencil labeled cat eye over a closed eye, making sure your lashes are poking through the opening, as seen in the picture below.

Place the stencil closer to your lash line for a thinner cat eye and slightly higher for a thicker more dramatic cat eye as seen here on the model. Choose either the full or tapered end of the brush. We like to use the fuller end of the brush slightly dampened, but either side works well. Choose a color and sweep the brush slowly across the lid making sure to brush color up into the point of the cat eye for a more precise look.

cat-eye-how-to.jpg

cat-eye-how-to-finished.jpg

Remove stencil, wipe away any eyeshadow and repeat the same steps on the other eye. Once you have both eyes done you can add more eyeshadow if you desire a more intense eye. Use the tapered end of brush slightly damp to go over the cat eye.


How To Get a Smoky Eye With Get In Line

how-to-smoky-eye.jpg

Every once in awhile a customer will have a question on how to do a smoky eye using the Get in Line Stencil Kit. For those who don’t know about the kit and how quickly you can create these looks, we decided to show you. The stencils are made from a soft PVC plastic so they are easy to fit on any eye shape.
As seen on the model above place the stencil labeled smoky eye over your closed eye. Holding stencil in place, use the full end of the brush and dip into one of the darker shadows from the kit ( you can mix together too). Sweep color over the entire eyelid opening. You can repeat again for a darker look. Remove the stencil, wipe brush, and apply the base color from your brow bone to the crease of your eye, making sure to blend both colors in the crease.

smoky-eye-done.jpg

Repeat the same as above on the other eye by simply flipping the stencil over. For a more dramatic look, using the same stencil labeled bottom liner, place underneath your eye and sweep color along line. To soften the line you can smudge with your brush for a Smoky eye runway look.

This is how easy it really is to do a smoky eye. The Get in Line Stencil kit from Beth Bender Beauty is $36.00 and is available at bettesboutique.com. Coming next How to do a Cat eye.

Celeb Looks From Beth Bender Beauty



More celeb looks

Sela Ward is absolutely beautiful and in her fifties if you can believe that! I have always been a huge fan and remember her back in her days as a top model. How gorgeous are her eyebrows? This is why you should keep your tweezers hidden from your teenage daughters. This is a perfect brow.

Seen here at a charity event looking lovely. Sela's look is soft with just enough color to give the skin a beautiful glow. To get Sela's look start by lining the eyes with a black or dark brown liner. Try Gel Eyeliner Cocoa, or Onyx, ($18, bettesboutique.com ) Line the eyes as close to the lash line as possible. This will make the lashes appear even thicker and give the eyes an alluring look.

Next, fill in your brows for a more finished look as seen on Sela. Choose a color that is slightly lighter than your brow color and apply with an angled brush using short strokes. Another great way to get perfect brows is to use an eyebrow stencil. We love Anastasia's Classic Stencils. You can buy the stencils separately and each pack comes with four designs. ($20, sephora.com ).

Add a touch of shimmer on the eyelid with a color in light bronze or gold. Try Zsa Zsa or Ginger Eye Dust from beth bender beauty.

Try Buttercream from Laura Mercier ($20, sephora.com ) Finish with two coats of black mascara. Try Here To Stay Mascara from Prescriptives. ($19.50, prescriptives.com )

For the cheeks, we like bronzer in peach instead of a blush. It gives the skin a beautiful glow and slight shimmer with just enough color. Try Just Peachy Bronzer, a favorite of Jessica Alba ($30, bettesboutique.com )

To finish the look a lip color in a nude beige will enhance your own natural lip color and be the perfect compliment to your beautiful eyes! Try Robertson Blvd Liquid lip color. Enhanced with Jojoba Gel for extra shine and perfect pout appeal. ($16, bettesboutique.com )

Beth Bender Beauty Celeb Looks



Get the look


We have been having so much fun with these celeb looks and have been getting a lot of requests for Scarlett Johansson. This is one of my favorite photo's of her and thought why not use this for" Get the look". I love the way the bronze shimmer shadow brings out the color of her eyes. They look Gorgeous and her skin looks luminous!

Starting with the eyes apply a shimmer shadow with a metallic palette. Choose two hues: one gold and one bronze. Dust the gold tone along lids, then brush the bronze hue slightly above and into the crease of eye. Try Ambra eye dust and Brown Sugar(bronze shimmer) both from Beth Bender Beauty. Line top lash lines with black Gel liner, try Onyx from Beth Bender Beauty, $18.00 at bettesboutique.com and give the inner corner of eyes an extra dusting of gold shadow for added sparkle. Try: Miss Moon from Benefit, $16.00 available at Sephora.com.

For the face apply foundation using fingers, then blend with a moist sponge to create a natural-looking finish. For a more sheer finish mix with a drop of moisturizer. Pro tip: To use foundation as concealer, add a touch more under the eyes to help conceal dark circles. For her sun-kissed glow, sweep bronzer along cheekbones, nose and forehead. We like Beth Bender Beauty's Bronzing Powder in Soak up the sun ($30.00, at bettesboutique.com. A favorite of Scarlett's and Evangeline Lilly). It looks natural and gives the skin a beautiful glow.

For the lips choose a color in the bronze family, we like Sunset Liquid Lip color for extra shine and the perfect touch of shimmer. Available at bettesboutique.com.

Halle Berry is stunning and pregnancy is definitely agreeing with her. Every photo of her shows a woman glowing and looking more beautiful than ever! Her look here is soft and sultry for a perfect "out on the town" evening look .

Beth Bender Beauty Celeb Looks






Get The Look


We love Eva Mendes! She always looks so beautiful without being overdone. She has probably the best eyebrows I've seen on a celebrity.

The make up is light and looks gorgeous. To create Eva's look start with a touch of tinted moisturizer to even out your complexion before applying color. This will give you coverage without feeling too heavy. We like Paula Dorf's Tinted Moisturizer and Cover Fx. They both offer the right amount of color and are easy to blend. I like to mix mine with a bit of Vibrant cream from Prescriptive's. It adds a bit of sheen and gives the skin a luminous look.

Once you have applied the tinted moisturizer, start with the eyes next. We like to use the Get in Line Stencil kit whenever we are doing eyeliner or giving a lesson to a client. It is easy and gives you a perfect line in seconds. Before we use the stencils we apply a shimmer on the eyelid to make the eyes pop. We used Ambra from Bettes Boutique. It is a golden taupe shade neutral enough to work on any skin tone. We applied the color with our fingers and pressed onto the eyelid. Then we lined the eyes with the Kohl shadow from the Get in Line kit. We smudged the eyes with the fuller end of the brush for a softer line.

For outstanding lashes we used Here To Stay from Prescriptive's and applied two coats for a very sexy eye.

The cheeks got a bit of color with Baby Blush from Beth Bender Beauty. This color looks great on anyone. It's a favorite of Nicole Ritchie and Evangeline Lilly from Lost. On the lips we used lip color in Livid from Bettes Boutique. A great pink color with brown undertones that looks beautiful on any lip.

The most important feature not to forget are the eyebrows which should be groomed and shaped. The easiest way to do this is to use an eyebrow stencil. We like Anastasia's. They do the work for you and show you how to groom and maintain perfect brows.

Get in Line Lip Stencils?

We've been getting a lot of emails from customers asking us if we intend to create a Lip Stencil to follow the Get in Line Stencil Kit. At the time when we were designing the templates for the eyeliner stencils we thought about doing a lip stencil but decided to focus on Just eyes.

Since then there have been a few companies who have explored lip stencils and we think it is a great idea but for the time being we don't have any plans to create one. We will be offering the Get in Line stencil kit in different colors scheme's sometime later next year. We want to give our customers more choices when buying the kit.

In the meantime we are including a full size sample of Paris is Burning liquid lip color from our Nude Collection in every purchase through November. It's a beautiful lip color in a pink beige shimmer infused with Jojoba gel for amazing shine and color.

Celeb Looks from Beth Bender Beauty

Get The Look

Jennifer Garner has a such a great look and her make-up always looks so fresh. To create this look on yourself start with a tinted moisturizer and apply a thin layer with your fingers or a sponge. For an even lighter application mix with your favorite moisturizer before applying.

For sexy eyes seen here on Jennifer start with a shimmer shadow. We like Ginger Eye dust from Beth Bender Beauty. Apply to your eyelid with your fingers Using your fingers will give you more of a shimmery look. For a nice tight line around the eyes try the Get in Line Stencil kit and apply with a charcoal shadow. Slightly dampen the brush before applying the color for a more dramatic look.

Keep the cheeks soft with just a touch of color. We like Kitty Cream Blush which is a light peach. It's a great color that works on any skin tone. You can add a bit of shimmer to the cheek bones for a sultry look. We like Benefit's High Beam.

To finish this look try a lip color in a neutral pink or nude. We like Paris is burning or Chasing the cash Liquid Lip Color both from beth bender beauty. They each offer just the right amount of color and shine.

Congratulations to Jennifer on her Broadway debut of Cyrano. I hear the reviews were great!

How to Create A Sultry Cat Eye In Seconds

























Meow....the cat eye is back in a big way!


Thanks to all of the beauty editor's and many beauty blog sites taking notice of how strong the cat eye was at fall fashion week this craze continues to dominate many beauty and fashion magazines. Just today I was skimming through a few of them and was amazed at how many campaigns were showing a cat eye. Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Guess and Bebe to name a few.

The cat eyes shown here are from Louis Vuitton. We love how the eyes take the lead and everything else is soft. Love this Cat eye? We love it too!

To create this look try using the Get in Line Stencil kit or Travel Set. The Cat eye stencil creates a perfect cat eye in seconds and gives you the perfect pointed tip as seen here.

To keep your cat eyes purring all day long you can go over them with an eyeliner sealant or use a gel eyeliner like Onyx from beth Bender Beauty. All Beth Bender Beauty products are available at bettesboutique.com. The eyeliner sealant can be found at most beauty supply stores.

How to Create Sultry Smoky Eyes



Smoky eyes are sexy for evening, and using rich blue shades is sometimes a nice change in place of black. Start by getting the perfect smoky eye shape using your Get in Line Stencil kit or Travel set. Place the stencil over your eyelid and fill in with a navy shadow. We used Betty Blu Eye Dust from Beth Bender Beauty and then went over again using our fingers for a more intense look.


Concentrating on your upper lash line will also give the illusion of very thick lashes. Drag some shadow along your lower lash line using the same smoky eye stencil marked bottom. Holding the stencil underneath your eye, dip your brush into the shadow and sweep the color along the stencil for a perfect line. Finish with two coats of mascara, my new favorite is Here to Stay from Prescriptives. Your lashes will look thick and long without looking clumpy.


The Get in Line Stencil Kit & Travel Set are available at bettesboutique.com

Scarlett Johansson's New Look


Kristen from Beautyaddict recently wrote about Scarlett Johansson's cover look for this months issue of Elle. As you know I adore Scarlett and think she is beautiful. She has been a fan of the Get in Line Stencil kit ever since we started selling it. She has great style and that is why I am so surprised that she was okay with this photo. Her skin looks washed out, her expression is blase, and I wonder what is going on with the dark brows that I have been seeing so much of lately. It is just not flattering and I can't imagine how this photo was approved for the cover.





How to Create Smoky Eyes In Minutes


What women are saying about The Get in Line Eyeliner Stencil Kit....



I love the idea of a smoky eye but I hate the idea of having to go through eight or nine steps just to get there. Most of the beauty magazines feature make-up artists who share their beauty tips in every issue. Usually more than often there is a "how to" on doing a smoky eye.
Great, but can't it be a little easier and less time consuming then that? Too many steps for me and I would rather not be bothered, that is until I found out about The Get In Line Kit from Beth Bender Beauty.

I was searching the internet like I do every weekend and came across this Stencil kit for lining your eyes. After doing a little research an reading what other women thought I decided to go ahead and order the kit.
When it arrived in the mail I couldn't wait to see whether or not these eyeliner stencils really worked. I invited a few of my girlfriends over and we had a little make-up party.

I went first and decided on a smoky eye. The stencils are flexible and are easy to hold in place. I followed the instructions that came with the kit and five minutes later I had perfect smoky eyes. I was really kind of amazed that it was that easy. One of the other girls did cat eyes and that was even quicker and they looked like a makeup artist had done them.

The next night my husband and I were going to a dinner party and I did cat eyes on myself. I got so many compliments on my eyes that every women there wanted to know how I got them so perfect. I was happy to share my little secret.

Thank you Beth for creating a great product. I love the kit!!

Beth Bender Beauty On Smashbox

Has anyone tried this primer from Smashbox? It is the oil free formula for oily and sensitive skin. I used it on a shoot the other day and really loved how the skin looked. It's water-based which is great for anyone who breaks out easily. One of the other things I love about this product is that it has vitamin C and peptides to help even your complexion and promote collagen production.

It is definitely worth checking out the next time you are in Sephora or anywhere else that carries Smashbox Cosmetics.

Get in Line Stencil Kit Seen On Moonlight

Get in Line Eyeshadow & Stencil Kit from Beth Bender Beauty continues to invade Hollywood.

Our friend Paul is one of the producers of Moonlight, the new show about Vampires on CBS. Good and bad vampires of course. Anyway he was nice enough to drop off some Get in Line Stencil kits, Glosses and All Over Shimmers to two of the stars from the show, Sophia Myles and Shannyn Sossamon. Both absolutely gorgeous of course.

Later that same day we got a call from Paul telling us that the girls were so excited and that they both planned on sporting a sexy cat eye to Halloween parties they were each attending.

Get in Line Stencil Kit & Honeyshed Update

The date for Honeyshed to feature the Get in Line Stencil kit from Bettes Boutique and Beth Bender Beauty has been changed to December due to a few kinks they are working on. They will be doing a huge consumer launch sometime before that and decided it would be a better time to showcase the Stencil kit.

We think so too and plus it will make a great holiday gift for someone who doesn't have one. We will continue to keep you posted when we get closer to the date. In February right around Valentine's Day they will be showcasing some of the other Beauty products from the line. We've put together a great mix of product and will be adding a few more surprises too.
