Halloween: Black Cat Makeup Tutorial!

I am back with another Halloween costume tutorial. This time, it's a black cat! My last costume tutorial (you can read about it here ) was all about the accessories, but this time around the makeup is key. Now, I wanted to do something a little different when it came to my black cat. Keep reading to find out more!

What You Will Need (Base Makeup)
-Foundation (Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination)
-Concealer (Physicians Formula Conceal RX)
-Under Eye Brightener (Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer)
-Setting Powder (Maybelline Dream Matte Powder)

Do your regular foundation routine. I wanted my face to look flawless so that all of the attention would be on the cat makeup that I was going to be applying over it.

What You Will Need (Eye Makeup & Whiskers)

-Champagne Eyeshadow (Maybelline Color Tattoo Barely Beige, L'oreal Infallible Iced Mocha)
-Black Liquid Eyeliner (Cat's Eye: Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliner, Whiskers: Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner)
-Black Pencil Eyeliner (butter LONDON Wink Eyeliner)
-Nude Eyeliner (Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner)
-Black Mascara (Maybelline The Rocket, Maybelline Cat Eyes)

How To Do It (Eyes)

-apply the champagne shadow all over the lid
-create a cat's eye using liquid eyeliner
-apply the nude eyeliner to the waterline of the lower lash line
-apply the black eyeliner to the lower lash line and blend out with a q-tip
-apply mascara

How To Do It (Whiskers & Nose)
-take a piece of tape to create a  guide for the nose
-use the liquid eyeliner to fill in the nose
-create 3 dots on each cheek
-draw on whiskers using the black liquid eyeliner

Now, it's time to put together your costume. I opted for a more comfy costume that would be suitable for a Halloween party or handing out candy to the neighborhood kids. This part is completely up to you however. If you want to wear a black dress or catsuit (who am I to stop you) than go for it! Do what feels comfortable for you! As long as you have cat ears than who cares!

What You Will Need (Costume)
-Black Cat Ears
-Black Shirt
-Black Jeans or Leggings
-Leopard Print Scarf (optional)
-Leopard Print Shoes or Slippers (optional)

That is it! You are now a cute, yet spooky, black cat. This is a super easy costume that is perfect to through together at the last minute.
