The Easiest Halloween Cat Makeup Tutorial (It’s Only 4 Steps!)October 29, 2020
There are one of two ways to go about your Halloween makeup look: You can plan it months in advance with the help of YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram, or you can wait until the very last second on the 31st to throw together a look. No matter which of these scenarios sounds more familiar, you can’t wrong in either case with Halloween cat makeup. The look can be an artsy adaptation you spend hours on, or it can be as easy using a few drugstore products and following the four-step tutorial ahead — your call (we’re personally voting on the latter).
Halloween Cat Costume Makeup How-To:
Apply Your Base
Apply a neutral-colored shadow with a hint of shimmer all over your lid. We love the L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Monos Eyeshadow.
Apply Your Cat Eye
Using a liquid liner like the L’Oréal Paris Flash Cat Eye, use the stencil to draw on a sharp cat eye. Create a reverse wing on the inner corner of your lower lash line to play up the feline drama. Next, finish off the eye with a lifting mascara. We’ve been digging the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Mascara.
Apply a Bold Lip
Apply your boldest, most long-lasting matte red lip color. Start by lining the lips with a lip pencil, like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in 714, and add a pigmented red lipstick overtop. Try the L'Oréal Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Maison Marais.
Complete the Look
Finish the look by drawing on whiskers and outlining the tip of your nose with a black long-lasting pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature in Black. Using a pencil first also allows you to easily remove any mistaken lines or shading. Finally, to set the color, apply a black liquid liner, like the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liquid Liner on top and your cat makeup will be complete.
