Halloween is creeping around the corner, and you find yourself without a costume. Don’t fret! One of the easiest and most popular last-minute costumes is the classic cat. With a little creativity and some basic makeup supplies, you can transform yourself into a feline beauty in no time.
1. Gather Your Supplies
Before you start, gather the essential supplies for your cat’s makeup look. You’ll need black eyeliner, black and white face paint or cream eyeshadow, false eyelashes, a makeup sponge, and makeup brushes. Having these items at your disposal will make the process much smoother.
2. Flawless Feline Foundation
Begin by applying your regular foundation and concealer to create a flawless base for your cat’s makeup. Make sure to blend it well, ensuring an even skin tone. Setting your foundation with a translucent powder will keep your makeup in place throughout the night.
3. Mesmerizing Cat Eyes
The key to a convincing cat makeup lies in the eyes. Use a black eyeliner to create a bold cat-eye look. Extend the line slightly beyond the outer corners of your eyes to mimic a feline’s eye shape. You can also add a subtle wing at the outer corners for a dramatic effect.
4. Whiskers and Nose
Using the same black eyeliner, draw whiskers on both sides of your face. Keep them delicate and symmetrical for a cute and authentic cat look. For the nose, paint a small black triangle at the center of your upper lip. This will give you that adorable cat nose.
5. Cat-Eye Contour
To enhance your feline features, use a matte bronzer or a taupe eyeshadow to contour the sides of your nose. This creates a natural shadow, making your nose appear more cat-like.
6. Alluring Cat Lips
For your lips, go for a sultry, dark shade like deep plum or black. Outline your lips with a black liner for definition and fill them in with your chosen color. You can add a touch of gloss to the center of your lips for a luscious effect.
7. Cat’s Whiskers
Take your black eyeliner again and draw small lines above your lips to represent cat whiskers. Keep them thin and delicate to match the whiskers on your cheeks.
8. Captivating Cat Eyes
Enhance your eyes further by adding false eyelashes. Opt for dramatic, long lashes that mimic a cat’s alluring gaze. Apply mascara to your lower lashes as well to balance the look.
9. Finishing Touches
To complete your cat transformation, consider adding cat ears and a tail to your outfit. You can easily find cat ear headbands at costume stores, and a tail can be crafted from black fabric or felt. Attach the tail to the back of your outfit or clip it to your clothing for a playful touch.
