Step 1:

Start by prepping your skin with our Weightless Moisture moisturiser and POREfessional Face Primer to create a flawless base.

Step 2:

Next, apply our Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation and blend, blend, blend!

Step 3:

Use your Hoola bronzer to heavily contour your cheekbones, forehead, nose and eye area. The aim is for it to be dramatic and feline-like, so don’t be shy!

Step 4:

Use Precisely, My Brow to fill in your brows. Don’t worry about keeping them neat, the messier and ‘furrier’ the better it’ll look! Then use 24-hour Brow Setter Gel to set them in place and give them a fluffy look.

Step 5:

Use Roller Liner to create a ‘feline flick’ winged eyeliner.

Step 6:

Then use Roller Eye Bright Eye Pencil to create the illusion of long, feline-like eyes by extending the inner corner of your eye.

Step 7:

Next, take your They’re Real Lengthening mascara in black and apply to your lashes. To add a fur texture you can also lightly brush it down your forehead to pick up all your small ‘baby hairs’.

Step 8:

Get your Roller Liner back out and draw on a cute cat nose. Then fill in your top lip and connect it to your nose with a thin straight line.

Step 9:

Use Hoola bronzer in the shade Toasted to further define your cheek area along your smile line. If you don’t have a darker bronzer then just go over the area a few times with your normal bronzer shade.

Step 10:

Take your Precisely, My Brow and draw on whisker dots to your upper lip, then lightly draw the whiskers on your cheeks.

Step 11:

Finally, add some false lashes to take your scary cat look to the next level. We recommend using the Girly Up full, flared false lashes for added drama!

And you’re done! Feel free to add some fake blood (it is Halloween after all), cat ears, and claws to complete the look!
