Halloween is just the best time of year… am I right?
I’ve teamed up with the wonderful guys at Boots to show you my take on what’s possibly the most famous Halloween makeup look of all time… the cat! I’ve been dressing up as one since the age of 13, most of which stemmed from the fact that I grew up with a fluffy black cat I was obsessed with. This year I really wanted to change it up though and go for a cat that represents me right now – after some interesting research I found out that they’re revered as hunters and warriors, but can also be deceitful and cunning…
Creating the Look
Boots kindly gifted me some awesome Halloween Makeup and I had a play around before I created this fierce feline! I drew influences from post apocalyptic-style makeup, and also wanted to do the multiple shades found in leopard print justice by layering the colours. NYX’s Ultimate Eyeshadow palette in Smokey did just the trick, topped with their prismatic gold shadow for touch of shimmer. I lined the lids with Collection’s 24-hour felt tip liner, and cut my crease for a touch of precision with Bourjois’ gold 24-hour eyeshadow.
I added some modernity with a purple lip, and finished with a deep red wig and my fave leopard print crop top.
A cat look really is the most versatile look for Halloween, but if you’re looking for a little bit more inspiration, you should definitely check out Boot’s Cat Halloween Makeup page.
I’m also super into this scary cat tutorial they did, it’s giving me all the Cheshire Cat vibes!
What are you going as this Halloween?
