Of course Halloween is my favorite time of year!!!! I remember seeing a ton of Cheshire Cat makeup creations on Instagram last year so I HAD TO re-create my own version of this classic Disney character.
FACE: I applied a foundation that was one shade lighter then my natural skin tone. My favorite is l’oreal True Match Foundation In W6 (I usually wear W7). For my concealer I used Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in Sand. To highlight my under eye , bridge of my nose, and center of my forehead I used Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in Light. I set all highlighted areas with a matte white eyes shadow from BH cosmetics.To make sure i bring a little color back to the face I like to use ” Sun Power” from MAC Cosmetics and ” peaches ” from MAC Cosmetics for blush.
EYES: Yes yes yes; once again, I used the Urban Decay “Electric” palette for the eyes as well as the pink strips on the chest. For the eye lids and strips I used the color “Jilted” and in the crease I applied ” Urban”. I used a little bit of “Carbon” from MAC on the outer corners and finished off with gel liner from NYX and L’oreal Voluminous Mascara for my lashes!
MOUTH: When you are creating a fake mouth with teeth you always want to take a white pencil liner and map out your teeth and mouth area. This way you can make sure your teeth are cemetric before you start going in with color. To fill in the theeth, I used NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in ” Milk” and set it with a matte eye shadow. I also used that same NYX pencil and matte shadow for the white strips on my neck.
my daughter will be the Turquoise version of the Cheshire Cat. I’ll be posting pictures of her costume on Sunday !
