Cat Makeup Look: SFX Tutorial Series, Pt. 20

Meeeeowwww! We've never seen a more fetching feline than @caykeface! Join us as she shows us how to create this colorful cat look using products from Ben Nye, Wolfe FX, Bdellium Tools, and more!


Products Mentioned

Bdellium Tools SFX Brushes 195X Large Stippling

Rubber Wear Leonine Nose Foam Latex Prosthetic

Wolfe FX Hydrocolor Palette Essential Palette 12

Bdellium Tools SFX Brushes 193X Small Stippling

Ben Nye Studio Color Eye & Cheek Rainbow

Mehron Colorset Powder 2.0 oz

Pros-Aide® Adhesive “The Original”

Lashes in a Box Individual Pair N°31

Using a q-tip, add some Pros-Aide to the bridge of your nose and position the cat nose. Once you are happy with the placement, use the q-tip to apply the adhesive around the edges to secure the prosthetic into place. Take a disposable wedge sponge and tap lightly along the edges to help for a secure seal against your skin. Set with a light dusting of powder.


Using the Bdellium Tools SFX 193X Small Stippling Brush and the Wolfe FX palette, apply the paint with light strokes to allow the bristles to give you a fur-like appearance. Leave the area around your eyes blank for now. We will apply makeup there later in the tutorial!


Once you have painted fur all the way up to your forehead, let it dry. Next, start adding details like a pink note and use a different color to define the nose bridge and around the mouth.


Prime your eyes with an eye primer and create a cat eye using the Ben Nye Studio Color Palette. Next, take the Wolfe FX palette and add dots onto the upper lip for additional feline details.

You're Camera Ready!


Step 5: Paint the Body

Using the Bdellium Tools SFX 195X Large Stippling Brush and the Wolfe FX palette, apply a gradient of colors to your body. Once that paint has dried, apply black stripes around the face and body and white whiskers for additional impact. Finally, add a light coat of mascara and apply false lashes.
