We are excited to share some tips on getting that cat eye makeup perfect for this year’s Halloween cat makeup look! We realize that some of you may be doing a virtual Halloween event, having a small get together or practicing Trick-or-Treat with more precaution, but restrictions don't equal less fun and creativity. So here are some tips for getting that Halloween makeup perfect for a holiday that is sure to be remembered.
Make sure to always prep your face by cleansing, moisturizing and priming. This will prevent breakouts and any skin issues from the amount of makeup that goes into doing any Halloween look.
Steps To A Seamless Cat Makeup Look
Step 1: Create an Even Base
Once you have applied your face makeup, you want to go in and apply the dark brown eyeshadow onto the crease of your eyelid.
Step 2: Create Texture in the Crease of Your Eyelid
Over the blended dark brown eyeshadow, take a thin brush and apply black eyeshadow directly onto the crease line and blend. Be sure to stay on the crease.
Step 3: Add Shimmer to Your Eyeshadow Look
After blending the black eyeshadow, consider using the eyeshadow color “Bakwa” inside The Warrior eyeshadow palette. Tap onto your eyelid until the entire eyelid shows gold.
Step 4: Use Winged Eyeliner
Now we get to the cat eye makeup! Grab your favorite liquid eyeliner and start from about 2-3 cm outside of your eyelid and brush inward to the beginning of your eyelid. Blend the end of the liner to the black eyeshadow.
Step 5: Create a Smokey Effect With Eyeshadow Eyeliner
Grab the brown eyeshadow again and softly apply to the bottom of your eye. It should look like a soft brown eyeliner. Apply the black eyeshadow directly on top of the brown eyeliner for a smoky effect. Now, go back and add black eyeliner to the bottom of your eyelid.
Step 6: Apply a small amount of the shimmer eyeshadow to the inner part of your eye.
Step 7: Add your favorite mascara and fake eyelashes.
Step 8: Add a shimmer eyeliner to the beginning and end of your cat eyeliner.
Step 9: Add a layer of bronzer to your cheekbones and jawline.
Step 10: Create Your Cat Lips
Outline and fill in the bottom part of your nose and connect it to your upper lip. Outline and fill in your upper lip as well. Grab your favorite nude lipstick for the bottom lip and apply as much as desired.
Final step! Create Whiskers
Take your black liquid mascara and add dots right above your upper lip. Now add three whiskers to each side, extending to the middle of your cheeks.
Meow! You look gorgeous in your cat makeup!
Final additions to add to your look can be a black collar, some cat ears and don’t forget big voluminous hair!
