Pick a Halloween Cat Face

Pick a Halloween Cat Face

Halloween Cat Face - particularly black ones, have been associated with Halloween since the 12th century, when it was suspected that cats acted as familiars for witches. Many people of the era believed that witches could turn into cats. Today, cats remain a popular choice for Halloween costumes.

- Consider your skin tone. The more closely your skin coloring matches the cat face, the less makeup you need to use to perfect the look. If you have a darker skin tone, consider a black cat face; if your skin tone is fair, you could opt for a tabby cat face instead.

- Decide if you want to use face paint or makeup to create the cat face. Many people are allergic to face paint, so test the paint before you put it on. People with allergies can use regular eye shadows and eyeliners to create cat eyes without face paint.

- Look at cat references like calendars, drawings or books. Try to find references that show a side view or profile of the cat face and not just the front. This can help you paint the cat's eyes and nose better.

- Pick a cat face within your skill level. If you're new to face painting, you don't want to pick a cat face that requires precise blending and shading to achieve the look.

- Know how long you need to paint your face. You might paint some cat faces in a few minutes where others could take you an hour or longer. If you need to get ready in a hurry, pick an easy cat face.

- Enhance your face with accessories like colored contacts. Many specialty stores offer prescription contacts with cat pupils. You can also add a headband with ears or real whiskers instead of drawn ones.
