Halloween Cheetah Makeup!

Hello!! This year for Halloween I decided to dress up as a Cheetah. I got some inspiration from some Cheetah Makeup that I saw on Pintrest and Youtube! I was really excited because I have never done an elaborate makeup look like this before, but it ended up being super easy and I had so much fun doing it!  Unfortunately, I did not take pictures of each step for this makeup tutorial like I wanted to, so I will just have to try to explain what I did best as I can with pictures of the makeup products instead!

For the Eyes 

I first primed my eyes with this Mirabella Primer.

I covered my eyelid up to my eye brow with this gold eyeshadow base. This is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold
I used this white eyeshadow base on my lower lash line and underneath my eye. This one is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool. I then used just a matte white eyeshadow to set in in place.

I covered this Mac Eyeshadow in All that Glitters all over my lid over top of the gold eyeshadow base. 
I used these two shadows from the Too Faced Natural at Night palette for my crease and outer corner.  I used Nightcap in my crease and blended it out, and used Cocoa Star in my outer corner and slightly blended into the crease. 
I used the L'Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense liquid liner for my eyeliner. I did a winged out liner and dragged it down into my inner corner to get a cat eye effect. I used the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara on my top lashes only. I did not use any eyeliner or mascara on my bottom lashes/waterline because it made my eyes look bigger and more open without them. 

For the Cheetah Print

I used these two Mac Eyeshadows in All that Glitters and Three Ring Yellow around my temples and cheek areas for color and definition to where the cheetah print goes.
I used this Cocoa Star color again from the Too Faced Palette with a small pencil brush to make the leopard spots. I basically just dipped my brush in the shadow and dotted them randomly on my face throughout my temples and cheeks. I did them all different sizes and wasn't too particular about them. 
To finish the leopard spots, I used this liquid eyeliner to outline the spots from the brown eyeshadow. I didn't outline the whole spot with the liner, but just the sides or top and bottom of it. Again, I wasn't too particular on how it was outlined because leopard spots aren't all perfect or identical! I also used this liner to make my nose and whiskers on my face as well!! 

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial! Let me know if any of you try it out, and send me pictures if you do!
