halloween tutorial: tiger

A few years ago my high school had a ‘spirit animal’ day and I did my makeup as a tiger. I decided to recreate that look with a few more years of experience under my belt.

products used:

nivea mens post shave balm

milani conceal and perfect foundation – 02 natural

chanel soleil tan de chanel cream bronzer

anastasia beverly hills waterproof creme color – jet

make up for ever flash palette

mac gigiblack mascara – black

ardell lashes – 202

duo brush on lash glue

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear.

step 2: foundation -I used milani conceal and perfect as my foundation because it is a little too dark and orange for me usually so it made the perfect base for a really orange look.

step 3: bronze – I used chanel soleil tan de chanel cream bronzer around the edges of my face and the sides of my nose to create depth and a slight contour.

step 4: eyes – I used abh jet to create the curved cat eyes. In all honesty I just looked at a picture to get the shape but I curved the line slightly above my crease and brought it in to go along the side of my nose and took it back to my temples.

step 5: stripes – I took two angled thin paint brushes to create all the lines of for the stripes of fur and tried to do really thin feathered lines that were just stacked on top of each other. I used the black and white from the MUF palette to create the face. I think its easiest to just look at a picture either of a tiger or of a recreation makeup look to get the placement on your face.

step 6: mascara –  mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 7: false lashes – I used ardell 202 lashes for a cat eye effect. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

here’s the completed look again:
