Sean and I dressed up yesterday and went to a Halloween/Birthday Party for a good friend of ours. I thought I’d share with you our costumes, a little pumpkin craft, and our small bit of decorations!
I chose to be a cat this year. I was super excited about doing the makeup for it! Sean’s costume was a bit last minute… it fits him really well though because he’s super into computers and technology. 🙂
Here are some more photos of my costume & makeup <3
For my makeup I did not use any type of face paint.
Halloween Cat Makeup Instructions:
The very first thing I did was prime my face with my Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray, doing this insures that my makeup will apply smoothly and last longer. After applying my foundation and concealer I went in with Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Blushed Copper. I used this to darken up my forehead and cheekbones, I wanted a coppery orange look rather than a matte bronze. Next I did my eyebrows, eyeshadow, and added a cat eye/winged effect using Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in Trooper. The next step was to add the white bits too my face. As I said earlier, I didn’t have any face paint so I used the white eyeshadow from the Morphe 35U palette with a fluffy face brush. I applied this between my nose and upper lip and just about my eyebrows. I also later added some down the middle of my neck and along the bridge of my nose. The next part is the most fun! Adding the spots!! I primed the all spots with my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer. I then applied Urban Decay’s Half Baked Eye Shadow on the spots. After this, I used the same liner mentioned earlier (Kat Von D) to make c-shapes around the gold spots. I also added a few smaller dots here and there. Because I decided to wear a crop top, I added some spots on my stomach. You could also add some to your arms and hands! The next step is to add your nose! To do this I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. I colored in the bottom bit of my nose and then added a line straight down to my upper lip. On my upper lip, I used Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Witches. I then used a neutral nude shade on my bottom lip. I then added spots and whiskers using both of the liners mentioned above (Kat Von D & Urban Decay). Lastly, I set my makeup with my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. And let me tell you… I think I sprayed this fifteen million times before we left the apartment. It was raining and I did not want my makeup going anywhere!!!
These cat ears are absolutely wonderful! Perfect for my halloween costume. The shop is lovely and shipping was as expected (shipping overseas takes a bit). I would highly recommend these ears. They are dainty and very versatile.
I decorated this pumpkin early this week with one of the clubs on campus. It was so much fun!! 🙂 I painted white stripes on my pumpkin then added the red bits and topped it off with a bow!
These are our wee bit of decorations we have in the apartment. I love it! <3
I hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween! Stay safe and enjoy the crazy costumes!
