In Memoriam: The Amy Winehouse Cat Eye & Beehive

WireImageWireImageMegan O'Niell, Lucky magazine

I loved her. I loved those crazy-exaggerated cat eyes (so exaggerated it looked as if she'd substituted the kind of brush used to baste a turkey for a pencil). The outrageous chunky slashes of liner were always impeccably shaded in and perfectly symmetrical. Here, my approximation.

1.) Use a thicker-tipped liner that's matte and super pigmented, like Urban Decay 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil or theBalm Pick Up Liner.

2.) Swipe your lid with a flesh-colored shadow.

3.) Trace the top rim of your lid with your liner then angle the line upward (very upward).

4.) Once you've got your shape, go over it with pencil until the lines are ultra-thick.

5.) Fine-tune the whole thing by adding mascara and brushing on more flesh-colored shadow.

The towering beehive that looked like it weighed more than double her body mass was spooky-cool and it was sexy and it was-so her. Here's how to get the look.

1.) Section off a substantial piece of hair from the top-middle of the back of your head (as if you were gathering hair to make a half-up-half-down ponytail), and sprinkle/rub in a volumizing powder or texturizer like Eufora Volume Fusion Spray.

2.) With a comb, tease the underside of the section of hair (the more you tease the hair into a matted clump, the more volume and height your hive will have).

3.) Tuck some of the teased hair under itself and pin it down using bobbi pins-almost as if you were curling it under in a roll-and leave some of the teased hair sticking up.

4.) Smooth strands of (un-teased) hair over the matted nest of hair and pin it down so that the teased hair is not visible.

5.) Finally, liberally apply serious holding spray like TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Non-Aerosol Hair Spray or Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray.
