Lion Halloween Makeup Tutorial =^.^=

Hey guys! Today I have the first of a few Halloween looks that I have planned for this year, and is one of my absolute favorites. This look is the brave LION! Rawr!

I really wanted to do another cat look after the warm reception my Puss In Boots Halloween look received last year. I got so many requests for a tutorial but I hadn't recorded one at the time so this one is a close cousin. I know a lot of girls do the whole black cat look with just a black nose drawn on but I like to think this is a step up from that. ^_~




Products mentioned:

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC30
MX21 Brown circle lenses
Graftobian HD Glamour Cream Super Palette in Warm
Lioele All-in-One Gel Liner
MAC Blot Powder in Medium
Urban Decay Naked Palette (Darkhorse and Virgin)
Lashes from http://www.kiwiberry1-collection.com/
Fairy Drops Mascara
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in 05 Glow
Pretty and Cute Contour Palette
Clinique Gel Liner in 04 Deep Brown
NYX Round Lipstick in Circe and Fusion

The final look


A close-up. I'm happy with the gradient look that came out of the eyeshadow blending.


This was my attempt at a cat-like squinty-eye. I don't think I actually look very frightening though. lol.


Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur...


...happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr!

(Nope, still not scary. XD)

So a little tip for you petite ladies out there, Leg Avenue makes really tiny costumes! A couple years ago I bought a Snow White Leg Avenue costume which you can see in this post which also fit quite well so I definitely recommend it. I wear size XS and this lion costume fits really petite in particular. I flipped the armwarmers around so the furry parts are at the hands because I thought it was cuter that way. :D


Here's the stock image for this costume for comparison. I actually like the color and fur of mine better.


Hubby caught me making faces on the floor. ;p


I hope you enjoyed this one! =^.^=

If any of you are going to try out this look pleeeease send me pics or post them in my facebook fan page! I am crossing my fingers that I will see lots of little spawn kitties this Halloween. Hehe.

Let me know what you are planning to be for Halloween in the comments! Time for me to go watch Life on Animal Planet and see hubby freak out about cute baby octopi.

  7. wow it looks amazing!!!
    The eyes and nose are absolutely perfect - I think your "upgraded" cat nose really sets your costume makeup apart from everyone elses ^^
    You look so cute - love the last pic where your hubby caught you making faces on the carpet XDDD

  8. Awww that is an adorable costume! The makeup is definitely many steps up from the usual cat looks I've seen. I think the contouring really helped. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

  53. hi there... was wondering if you have done, or could do a tutorial for a smoky eye using green eyeshadows? kinda like a forest nymph/pixie?

    ReplyDelete
  54. gorgeous hair, i love it! how to do the fringe like yours?

    =D

    ReplyDelete
  55. Aww this is so cute and creative!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. OMG that is so cuuute! And I think Leg Avenue's costumes vary from one costume to another depending on the style. If it's a body hugging sort of costume it tends to run smaller because I fitted into my lady bug costume from a few years ago perfectly, but when I tried on one of the pirate costumes it was too big, especially in the bust area. ;x

    ReplyDelete
  57. Great tutorial! Gorgeous look!

    Quick question, what barrel curling iron did you use (or flat iron)....the 1.5" curling iron was too big.....so I'm debating between the 1.25" or the 1" curling iron.

    If you could get back to me on that, that would be great!

    Keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Soooooooo cute~~ you make me want to be a lion!!hahaa

    ReplyDelete
  59. U r soooooo cute!
    Love the overall make up and outfit to the maximum...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hey Jen,
    I saw your eyelid tape video and was wondering if you've ever used an double eyelid clipper like this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Japan-Double-Eyelid-Clipper-eye-Clip-No-Tape-No-Glue-/140463164138 because it looks quite interesting. If yes it'd be great if you could do a review on them.

    Love,
    Lila

  79. So, this tutorial was actually a lifesaver for me cause I decided on that same lion costume for this year's halloween, and when I searched for makeup how to's everyone did a harsher version, with much more detailing. Yours was incredibly simple and easy and sexy. I absolutely loved it. Only thing I did different was that I painted my whole nose black. I'm including the direct link for a pic of my halloween night. Thank you so much :)

  80. Hello! I really like this costume and the make up. I was wondering if you can offer other options about the shoes? I love high heels, but personally I prefer something like flats or maybe 1inch. Do you know the type of shoes that will pull this outfit? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  81. HEllo! I really like the costume and the make up. I saw your the heels you wore, and I was wondering if you can list some other option besides heels for this outfit? Personally I love heels but I prefer flats or 1inch.
