Paint In Eyebrows and Nose

Darken and thicken eyebrows with black or dark brown paint or shadow (Image 1). Dip a thin paintbrush into water then coat with a generous amount of black paint. Paint nose black, focusing on the bottom tip. Next, paint a line connecting bottom of nose to top lip, creating a cat-like mouth separation (Image 2).

Create Muzzle and Add Whiskers

Paint top lip black and extend curving line up cheeks slightly (Image 1). Paint bottom lip black (Image 2), then add black dots to white area above top lip (Image 3). Add whiskers by brushing white paint in small, short strokes around mouth and cheek area (Image 4).

Create Cat Eyes

Add a line of black paint under eyes, angling down the nose to create those striking big-cat eyes (Images 1 and 2).
