As far as we're concerned, Sir John lives on a higher plane of existence when it comes to beauty. He's the go-to makeup artist for a diverse and talented set of celebrities—think supermodels like Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, sports stars like Serena Williams, and music icons like (get ready) Beyoncé. He's also a L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador and a mentor and producer of the show American Beauty Star, which just wrapped its first season on the Lifetime Network.
Here, he shows us how to create an eye-catching twist on a traditional cat eye. Instead of using a black eyeliner, he uses a glinting metallic formula that basically looks like melted gold. He pairs the liner with bold and spidery lashes, creating an unexpected and elevated beauty look that’s perfect for wearing to all of your holiday engagements (or anytime, really). To see the final look, watch the full video above.
