Kitty Cat Makeup Tutorial

When you have two little ones, making yourself over into something scary just isn’t an option. I love how simple being a cat is for Halloween when you have kids. You don’t need a costume, and you can find a cheap kitty cat headband pretty much anywhere. This tutorial is really going to beef up that “costume” you’ve planned for yourself, or it’s going to make you the talk of the party. Either way, I hope you own that kitty cat wherever you go this Halloween!

For this tutorial, I am using the Stila In the Light Eye Shadow Palette. It’s got great highlights, shimmers, and browns. I’m also using black eyeliner, an Anastasia Eyebrow Stencil, some white cream makeup from WalMart, fake eyelashes, and for the highlight/contour, I’m using the Bahama Mama Bronzer and the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory. Feel free to use similar products that you already have. If you’re looking for something new though, I highly recommend all these products!

Let’s get to it shall we?

    Next, I'm applying "kitten" from the Stila in the Light Eyeshadow Palette to my eyelid. This is a really pigmented shimmer.

    Tape! You've going to tape your eye so that the fall out from your darker shadow doesn't get on your cheek. This also creates a perfect line.

    Here I'm using the High Arch Stencil in the Anastasia Eyebrows Kit. I talked about those here if you're interested in the read. These are the most amazing stencils evvver! I wanted something drastic and big, so I chose the biggest stencil available. It really gave me some beautifully defined brows.

    I wanted the brows a little bit curvy, so I took some makeup remover and removed some of the color on the brows.

    Next, using your Sandstone or matte brown, you're going to draw a little triangle where your eyebrow begins.

    Fill in your eyebrow and line your eye with some eyeliner, with the tape still on. Remove the tape and add your fake eyelashes.

    Now we are going to start highlighting and contouring — my very most favorite part! Take your bahama mama or bronzer and go to town applying it dark underneath your cheeks. Give yourself a little smooch in the mirror, and where you see the crease is where you should apply heavy strokes. I've also applied the bronzer along my hair line, my jaw line, and right next to my nose.

    Now take your highlighter and draw a nice triangle under your eyes, along your brow, and in the center of your forehead. Blend it with your fingers, with a sponge, or with your beauty blender. I highly recommend investing in the beauty blender. You can get 2 sponges right now on Amazon for $20.  hey're amazing. To read more about them, check out my article here.

    Next we're going to paint our nose — use the picture as a guide. I'm just using a black pencil that came in my Walmart Halloween Makeup Kit, but an eyeliner will do just fine.

    I applied a really pretty maroon color to my bottom lip and blended it with some more black. Add your whiskers, and then finish off by adding small triangles below your tear duct. That'll really finish off the cat eye look!

    Add your cat ears headband to second day messy curly hair. Make sure to rat it good and make it look tousled. I secured the front chuck of hair in the back with a bobby pin.
