It’s that time of year, ladies! Halloween is right around the corner, and you’re likely brainstorming costume after costume, trying to find the perfect alternate identity to rock on October 31st. Well, the hunt is over because we have the purr-fect look for you! Seriously, it’s the cat’s meow! Okay, no more puns—we’re sharing how you can put a chic spin on a classic cat Halloween costume. From makeup products to hair color, here’s a step-by-step tutorial for this chic cat Halloween makeup look.
Step #1: Apply primer. For this cat makeup look, you want to give your skin a flawless finish. Start by applying a long-lasting makeup primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer. This primer locks in a matte finish, blurs imperfections, and creates a smooth surface for your makeup application. After, apply your favorite foundation using a makeup blender.
Step #2: Start your cat eye. Once your base is applied, it’s time to move onto the focus of this makeup look—your cat eye! First, apply a neutral eye shadow shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bottomless Java, to your eyelid. Then, apply an amber shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Amber Rush, in your crease using a fluffy brush for soft definition.
Step #3: Line your eyes. After your eye shadow is applied, grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Nude and line your waterline. Continue the line past the inner corner of your eye as if to extend the shape of your eye toward your nose. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Black to draw your sharpest winged eyeliner on your upper lid. To amp up your feline feel, take the same liquid eyeliner and draw a thin line beneath the nude eyeliner you extended outside your waterline. Finish your cat eye by applying a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara for bold, dramatic volume.
Step #4: Create a nose and whiskers. Of course, no cat makeup look is complete without a nose and whiskers. Sans feline facial features, you’re just a girl rocking winged eyeliner! Use a long-lasting pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black, to really get catty. First, outline and color in the bottom portion of your nose to create a black, cat-like nose. Then, draw three small dots on either side of your upper lip. To complete your whiskers, draw three thin, black lines on each side of your cheek, aligning them with the three dots.
Step #5: Seal the deal. To ward of shine and help keep your cat Halloween makeup in place, apply a translucent setting powder all over your face. We love the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder for this step.
Step #6: Paint your pout. While you can totally stop there with your chic cat makeup look, why not amp up the chicness with a colorful lip? Use a lip color with a long-lasting formula like the L’Oréal Paris Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick. The perfect shade? A deep red! Try Stirred or Matador for playing up your pout.
Step #7: Add some color. To take your cat Halloween costume to the next level, you can also add a pop of color to your hair using any shade of the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray. This temporary hair color offers quick spray application and washes out in just one shampoo, making it perfect for the occasion.
Step #8: Accessorize. The final step to complete your cat look is to accessorize with your favorite pair of cat ears! Throw your hair into a high bun to make your ears really stand out. To ensure you don’t lose your precious ears at some point during the night, secure them into place with a few bobby pins placed in a crisscross pattern. (Not sold on being a chic cat this Halloween?
