Halloween Look


This year for Halloween I was inspired by this photo I found online of a Cheshire Cat Halloween look, I decided why not retreat it! This was a really easy look to do. The main focus is the large signature smile. I went pretty simple on my eyes just bringing the same purple and pink combo I used on my nose and cheeks through my eye sockets. If you felt really inspired you could do a full on dramatic eye look as well. 

To get this look you will only need a couple of things...
1. White and black face paint - I found the water activated kind worked best and this was available at my local party supply store.
2. Black liquid eyeliner - I used the Elf liquid eyeliner. 
3. Nude eyeliner pencil.
4. Purple and Pink Eyeshadow - You can do a combination of whatever you may have in your collection, I would stick to matte shadows on the face and nose and you can use shimmer more on your eyes. 
5. Hot pink face paint/cream blush/ lipstick.
6. Brushes: Buffing brush, tiny liner brush, and flat shader brush. 





I started this look out with my normal foundation/concealer routine. Next I outlined the shape of the mouth using my nude pencil. It was a little difficult at first to get the mouth symmetrical so I would definitely advice tracing it with the nude pencil first. Once outlined I mixed my purple and pink shadows and buffed it around the outside of the traced mouth. I then carried the purple/pink shadows up my nose. Think of it like you were contouring but with purple instead of a natural shade. For the eyes I buffed more of the purple eyeshadow along my crease making sure to connect the shadow along my nose and eyes.

Once  you are satisfied with the intensity of the purple you can move on to filling in your mouth. I found it easier to fill in the entire mouth with white paint and let completely dry prior to applying the black.

To get the look of teeth I outline the mouth with the black paint using a tiny eyeshadow brush and then shaped the teeth. To achieve a cartoonish look be sure and only curve the outer side of the teeth keeping the middle line straight.


For my nose I actually used a hot pink lipstick but you can use what ever is convenient. Apply the hot pink on the tip of your nose and then outline the top of your nostrils with the black paint or liquid eyeliner.

For the whiskers I placed clusters of three dots and happened to have a few stick on glitter whiskers from the halloween store but you could also draw these on as desired.

And thats it! A pretty easy look to create, throw on some cat ears and you have a last minute Halloween look!
