Smokey Eye Cat Makeup and Hair Tutorial
I'm going to show you how to do a seductive cat look using safe, nontoxic makeup. We’ll start by using Almay Pure Blends liquid foundation. The color I'm using is buff. Now onto our concealer, this is Korres wild rose concealer. It comes with a nifty, little brush which makes it easy to apply. Now onto Benefit cream shadow. I'm using this as an eye base instead of a shadow. It works great either way.
I'm using Korres multivitamin pressed powder. This is loaded with vitamins, not only is it great for setting a foundation, it’s great for your skin. Next, I'm using Terra Firma Celebrity Mineral bronzing powder. This is just for the extra boost of color. It’s time to start our cat lips. I'm using Loreal HIP black pencil. I'm lining my upper lip and mimicking it up giving me a cat-like smile on the corners. Be sure to fill it in and only do your top lip.
Now let’s do our whiskers. Start by drawing three dots on the top corners of your mouth. Let’s just draw three lines away from the dots. These are your whiskers. Don’t stress if they’re not the same. Cats like humans are all different. Back to our concealer, we’re going to conceal our bottom lip and make it look as if it’s not there and once again we’ll set it with our Korres powder. Grab a brow brush and powder off your lips and your cheeks. You want to be sure those are set so they don’t smear.
I've got Almay Pure Blends pressed eye powder in the ivory color. I just apply this all over the lips and around and under. This is a great accent. I've got Benefit’s Gimme Some Plum pressed shadow. It’s a vibrant purple color and I just apply it over the lower lid. I've got La Femme’s sparkle dust # 16. This is a sparkle coppery tone and I apply it over the top of the lid and slightly under on both eyes.
Then I move on to NS Mineral powder shadow. This is your turquoise color. I apply it on the outer and inner corner of each eye. Be sure to blend. Then I've got Loreal HIP gold pencil. I'm lining both of my eyes all the way around. This will act as a great accent underneath our black liner we’ll be doing next.
Now onto the fabulous bullet line from the inner of your eye to the outer of your eye, wing it up and wind all the way around. Mixing my NS charcoal shadow with water, I create a liquid liner. Apply the liquid liner over the pencil lining where you just applied. This will help smooth out any harsh edges and help your eyes look more dramatic. Take your gold pencil and bring your inner lids.
In edge brush and Benefit’s light brown in defining my brows. Curl those lashes. You can't forget your lashes. I'm using black mascara by ZuZu luxe. Using Loreal’s HIP black pencil I'm drawing an upside down triangle from my cat nose and filling it in. From the center of your nose to your lips draw a straight line. Remember set it with powder so it doesn’t smear. Your cat face is complete.
Let’s move on to your hair. Comb through any tangles and pull your hair half up. I'm using Chi organics olive nutrient spritz. This will help protect my hair and help hold the curls, taking medium size section of hair and curling some forward and some back. This will give you a classy yet funky look. As you can tell I'm not worried about it looking perfect. I think that the messiness kind of go well with the cat look. I'm back combing the sides and back of my hair. This is to give volume and enhance the messy look. You can't forget to accessorize. That’s what makes the costume complete.
