Halloween Tutorial: The Cheshire Cat

Tuesday, October 28, 2014
My third halloween look for this year, I have loved creating these looks for my blog and for the Fragrance Direct blog too (check it out, here). Alice in Wonderland is my favourite Disney/cartoon films, I loved watching it as a child. I am surprised I haven't done an Alice in Wonderland look before and this one is surprisingly simple and easy, it's the cheeky Cheshire Cat! In the original cartoon film (the one I love) the cheshire cat is purple/pink unlike the modern version which is grey/blue - I definitely love the original film/character more!

Products used:

Barry M White Foundation 
*Zoeva Graphic Eyes New Jewels Liner
Avon Supershock Eyeliner (Black)
*Colorsport Rapid Lash-Gro Liquid Liner (Black)
FCUK The Colour Palette 
Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner (Silver)
*Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (Black)
Makeup Revolution Awesome Eyeshadow Collection 
*Makeup Revolution Atomic Lipstick (Make Me Magnificent)

Firstly, as with the Corpse Bride look, I mixed the Barry M white foundation with a few shades from the FCUK palette (received a couple of Christmases ago) but just mix a few pink/purple/light navy eyeshadow shades together until you find a shade you like. I then used a flat foundation brush to paint the colour over my face, slightly onto my neck and ears. 

I then moved onto the mouth so the purple foundation would set slightly. I made a guide of the mouth with the avon liner, creating the teeth in the mouth and filling in the gaps in-between with the black liner. Join the mouth with the nose and then I used the liquid liner to make the lines a bit neater and to create the curly ends of the mouth which I love, I think it makes the look! Then fill in the teeth with the white foundation (a white pencil would be better/easier). 

Now onto the eyes and brows, I used the zoeva purple glittery pencil (no shade name) throughout my brows and along the upper and lower lash lines. I made the front of the brows quite pointy which I think makes the look a bit more scary/crazy! I then used a mix of purple shades from the massive Makeup Revolution palette messily over the lids and blended into a more rounded shape than I would normally, but with a slight haze of shadow at the outer corners of the eyes. 

Back to the foundation, I used a thin eyeliner brush, various purple eyeshadows, the rimmel silver pencil and the white foundation to make thin lines on the face to make the skin look a bit like fur and so the foundation didn't look so flat. For the finishing touches I added some of the silver pencil in the inner corner and a small amount of highlighter down the centre of the face and cheekbones. I also added dots to the cheeks. Last but not least, apply a lot of mascara - I'm currently loving the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (review, here).

What do you think of my cheshire cat look? What are you dressing up as for halloween?
