Kitty Cat Face Painting Tutorial for Halloween

You Will Need

Face painting brushes (preferably small and medium if you have both.)

What To Do

Sponge a semi-light base of White all over the face.
Directly above the mouth, add a second and third coat of white so that part of the face is whiter than the rest.

Using the photos as your guide, take the medium brush and black paint and add the lines that go around the eyes. Begin by painting a slightly curved line of black from the inside corner of the eye out to the bridge of the nose and then up the outside ridge of the nose to right above the eyebrow.

Now continue that line around the top side of the eyebrow and back down ending a bit lower than the outside corner of the eye. I went about .5″ higher than her natural eyebrows, and took the line outwards almost to her hairline. From there I added three short lines radiating out from the outside corner of the eye.

Again using the black paint and medium brush, outline and fill in the nose. Begin by drawing a curved line along the rounded part of the nostril. Repeat on the other side. Then fill it in including the underside.

For the mouth, use the medium brush to draw a thick line going from the cupid’s bow of the lips up to the nose. outline the natural shape of the lips in black, continuing the line outwards just a bit from the corners of the mouth. Then come back and fill the lips in.

For the whiskers, use the small paintbrush (if you have one, if not it’s ok) to add three or four lines on each side.

Now simply add five or six black dots in between the upper lip and the nose on each side.

And that’s it! Your kitty cat is ready to go gather some treats!

Optional Highlights
Use a cleansed sponge to very, very lightly dab pink paint around the apples of the cheeks, the eyelids where you would usually put eyeshadow, a tiny bit right above the black on the tip of the nose, and a dab on the chin. 

About Snazaroo Face Paints

Snazaroo face paints are non-toxic, and perfect for sensitive skin without any fragrance or parabens. Even better, the paint washes right off with just soap and water! No heavy scrubbing or creams needed. It was easy to apply, the colors were bold and bright, and the kit had everything we needed including a sponge and a brush. The only thing I wish they had included in this particular kit was a second brush, one with a finer tip for drawing intricate details. Other than that, I loved using Snazaroo face paints and will definitely use it again!

Snazaroo offers face paint in every color you could possibly need as well as a great variety of kits, stencils and stamps. You can order their paints online through Amazon, or find them at a store near you by using their handy Store Locator.
