The time for Halloween is quickly approaching!
While guaranteed, Halloween is not as popular in Britain as it is across the pond, it can quickly turn into a major social event. Where I live it is used as more of a chance for the students to let go midterm and have a great big party. The party at the student union is LEGENDARY!
In spirit of the upcoming events I'm going to run a series of different looks that can be created through the use of everyday makeup (no fancy face paints for me, no siree). The first look I wanted to try was the traditional Halloween kitty cat. At any party it can be guaranteed that at least a quarter of the people there will chose this. As I am a 'cat-person' it would always be my first choice.
I washed and primed my face prior to putting any makeup on; creating a blank canvas. For this look I never used any foundation as, to me, the other makeup would just cover it up. I used a tiniest amount of a basic dark brown potted shadow that I owned and buffed it all over my face to give it a bit more depth and colour. I used Barry M Blink precision eyeliner to line out the area for the nose before I filled in with Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner (Perfect Black). I used the exact same Too Faced eyeliner to make a thicker cat eye (how aptly named); before making sure to create and define the space around the tear duct.
I then packed Elf Custom Eyes, in Ivory, HEAVILY on my upper lip, as well as along the bridge of my nose. I made sure to blend the edges so there were no harsh lines. The eye shadow also has highlighting properties which made it especially vibrant in the light. The last part was to create the cat's mouth. Taking the same Too Faced eyeliner I made the join between the nose and the mouth. I then filled in my upper lip. The whiskers were created with the Barry M Blink pen as it gave the finer lines needed.
If all else fails I'm a cat this year <3
