& Black Make up
Brown & Black Eye Liner Pencils
If your going to do a cat face the best thing to do first is to look at a cat or get a picture of a cat. This will help for any references you have to make, depending on what kind of feline you chose to portray. I chose a tiger look. When at all possible try to follow the natural lines and contours of your own face.
|1) Remembering to always start with lighter colors, start with white. Then go to yellow.|
|2) Next paint your lips red. After that I like to blend a little red on the yellow of the cheeks to get a orange blend (Use just a small bit of red, it goes along way and will easily overpower the yellow.)|
|3) Then put green or your color of choice on the eyelids. (The women can do an over exaggeration of their own eye make up) Then put brown over and under the eyes and blend the brown into the rest of the make up under the eyes.|
|4) Then paint your nose and eyebrows black.|
|5) Next use a brown eyeliner pencil to do some lashes under the eye. And a black eye liner pencil for the finishing touches.|
|6) Once you have your make up looking the way you want it the last step is to powder it to set it. You see most make up is oil based, which means it will not dry. If you rub it, it will rub off, it will sweat off. So if you powder your make up it absorbs the oil out of the make up and sets it. (Not powdering is the most common mistake I see, a make up job that probably looked great when they left the house turns into a ball of muck the first time they break a sweat, or scratch their face) This may fade the make up a bit, but if you pat it with a wet sponge or towel the colors will return to their original state.|
|Helpful Hint: If you had the money and resources you could go and get some expensive talc and some fancy shmancy powder puff or powder brush, but I just take some baby powder and dump it into a sock and tie the end of it off. That way all I have to do is pat it over the face.|
7) Then let your hair down, don your tiger skin spandex, grab a rat, and strike a pose.
