I could blame my 11th hour Halloween preparations on exigent circumstances (i.e. lack of power…thanks Sandy!) but even under normal conditions and despite my best intentions, I almost always leave costume cultivation to the last minute.
But since rushing to Ricky’s, hoping to find something other than a sexy nun get-up, an XXL gorilla costume or packets of fake blood probably won’t be an option this year, it’s just as well that my kitty cat relies on products that are indispensible and therefore on-hand year-round.
For additional highlighting (down the nose and top of the cheekbones) I used the classic MAC Strobe Cream. If ever I’m looking the least bit dewy on this site, it’s generally thanks to this product being discriminatingly deployed.
Now for the fun part- the nose and whiskers are care of my favorite pencil eyeliner- Clinique’s Quickliner for Eyes Intense. It has a rich pigment that is perfect as used here but it’s also non-irritating which is helpful for sensitive eyes when it’s deployed more traditionally.
For a final vampish flare, I added a quintessential red lip using NARS’s Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl.
Add some cute cat ears and this kitty is ready for a party…what about you?!
