Oscar Makeup: Nicole Richie’s Cat Eye Inspired Look

Hey everyone! Did you get a chance to see the Oscars on Sunday? I missed out, but I got a chance to check out the red carpet pictures and I was amazed with several, but the look that caught my eye was Nicole Richie’s makeup. Her look was a mod cat eye look! I loved how her eye look stood out and it was different from everyone’s makeup!! So, I decided to recreate the look with my own style of course and had an blast!!
