Happy Halloween! This week's look is a Leopard!
I love playing with makeup and this leopard look is really focused on fun makeup! I think that leopard makeup seems really intimidating, but honestly doing it, it was really easy! I have a really easy picture how-to in this post as well if you happen to think it might be a little intimidating!
I also found these ears (and a tail) for $6 which really added to my whole costume!
Here is a closer look at the makeup:
This makeup look is all about the leopard spots, but I also wanted it to be about the eye makeup too!
Here is a look at the products I used:

-Under brow shadow ~ Naked 2 "Bootycall"

-Lid shadow ~ Naked 2 "half baked"

Of course you don't need to use the same products, just something similar!
Here is a look at how easy the spots are to create:
-Use a rounded eyeshadow brush and dot on both a medium brown and a dark brown eyeshadow (sizes can be different and you pick how close together you want them - these don't need to be perfect)
-Use a black liquid eyeliner and create an outline around the eyeshadow dot - this is hard to explain because you just squiggle the liner around. If you are uncomfortable with wiggling around the liner, start by creating a "c" shape around the dots.
Here is how to create the whole look:
-Do your face makeup as usual - foundation/concealer
-add some bronzer to your hairline and contour line (I added a little touch as blush)
-Go hard on the highlighter! I added a ton to my cheekbones and apples of cheeks. Add it all over forehead and to the upper lip - lots of it!
-Create the shadow look with yellows, golds and bronzes on the lid.
-Do a bold cat eyeliner and pull the liner down past the inner eye corner and under the eye. -Then, using a pencil liner, tightline the eyes
-Fill in brows - I didn't do a hugely bold look, because I wanted the spots to stand out
-Create spots all over forehead and carry it down to the cheeks
-Use brow pencil, and create little freckle spots on upper lip
-Use NYX Jumbo eye pencil and create nose, carry a line down and fill in top lip.
-I covered the bottom lip with a little foundation so it blends in to the face makeup.
-Add some cute ears!
Have fun being a Leopard!
