Hello to my readers, happy Tuesday! I planned to have a few blog posts up on some Halloween looks; however, my schedule has been super busy unfortunately, which has left me unable to post. Since Halloween is this Saturday, I thought I would share this quick, “sexy feline” makeup look with you guys. This look is great for any last minute costumes, you just need an all black outfit and some cat or tiger ears of some sort, and you’re all set! So, if you’re interested in seeing how I created this sexy feline makeup look, please keep reading.
Foundation: to begin this look, I started off with my regular foundation routine using L’orèal Infallible foundation in “102” and Mac pro long wear concealer in “NC20” to highlight my under eyes.
Highlight/Contour: to contour my face, I used L.A Girl’s Pro concealer in the shade “Beautiful Bronze” around my forehead, jawline and cheek bones. For the cheek bones, I rounded out the contour around the apple of the cheeks in order to create a more prominent and fuller cheek. To contour the nose, I applied the contour parallel down the outer sides of my nose, in order to widen my nose and give the appearance of an animal like nose. I blended out the edges, but kept the lines very sharp in order to make it more dramatic. For the tip of the nose, I filled in a “cat nose” using a dark cream foundation from my RCMA foundation palette (you can use any brown cream product for this). To set the cream contour, I used the darkest, 3rd shade from my Kat Von D Shade Light Contour Kit.
To highlight the centre of the forehead, chin, under eye and bridge of the nose, I used a white face paint from the Halloween store, and blended it into my foundation. For my upper lip, I did the same technique, but I didn’t blend it as much as the previous areas, as I wanted to keep that upper lip looking very round and feline like. To further draw attention to the upper lip, I lightly contoured around the white paint to really make that area pop and look more realistic. To set the highlighted areas I used Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in “Light”. To highlight the cheekbones I used Becca Cosmetics “Champagne Pop”.
Eyebrows: For the brows, I filled them how I commonly would using my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in “Soft Brown”. Around the top portion of the brows, I used an angled brush to create upward strokes to mimic bushy hair.
Eyes: Although the eyes may look complex, they were very simple to create! I used my concealer as my base and set the lid using a neutral skin tone eyeshadow. On a large blending brush, I used a medium brown eyeshadow and blended that into the crease. On a more dense blending brush, I used a dark brown on the outer lid and in the lower crease to give more depth to the eye. I then applied I thick wing on my lid using Inglot gel eyeliner in #77. For the lower lash line, I applied a black liner in the water line and under the lash line, and blended it out using a pencil brush with the dark brown eyeshadow I used in the crease. Once I got closer to the tear duct area, I elongated the inner corner of the eye, creating a straight line directed on an angle (towards the bridge of the nose). Once the eyes were complete, I took a fine eyeliner brush (Mac 210) and used my Inglot liner to draw leopard print spots on my lids. These are very simple to create, you just need a steady hand and some patience! A tip I like to use is to make “c” shapes going in different directions and to make the rounded area thicker than the ends of the “c”. You can add little dots to mimic spots throughout the lid as well. I then applied some mascara and lashes, and the eyes are done!
Lips: for the lips, I used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lipliner in “Trick” and lined my lips. For the top lip, I extended both of the sides in order to create a longer top lip. I then filled in the lips with Mac “Stone” lipstick.
