Cat Costume and Makeup for Halloween
To turn yourself into an adorable cat for Halloween, cover your face with a blend of dark and light foundations to create the cat-face shape. Darken brows and create a bold cat eye with black eyeliner. Then color tip of nose black and add line from the nose to upper lip. Color top lip black. Apply a black shadow to the black areas for a more extreme cat eye. Use a white cream pencil and draw a small triangle just inside the black of the inner point. Using a large makeup brush, apply white shimmery eye shadow to the light highlights all around the face. Then, use black liquid eyeliner to accentuate the eyes by following the existing lines. Use the liner to dot on about five whisker spots above the lips on each side and draw three whiskers going out beside the nose. Add fun false eyelashes, cat ears, a tail and a collar to complete the look.
Sure, dressing up as a cat isn't the most original idea, but this tutorial takes feline to a whole new level. And you can create the look in less than 30 minutes!
