Cheshire Cat Makeup Tutorial – with Makeup Tattoos


Hi Guys! Today we’re doing the Cheshire
Cat with fake tattoos and piercings Start out by priming your eyes so we can have some super intense eyeshadow Then realise you haven’t done your brows
and go back and fill those in. I’m using a detail brush to do my brows and I’m just doing short quick strokes to try and make it look like there’s more hair there than there actually is coz my brows are a little thin. For this look I’m changing the shape of my brows a bit I want that pointy bit on
the top of my brow to be kind of more pointy and sharp. I don’t want my brows to look too drawn on so I’m sticking really close to the natural shape of it and just when
I get to that point I’m just going a bit darker and just making that tip of it
really sharp. Now that we got some brows back to the eyes. Starting out with the
hottest pink that you can find add that to your crease and bring it up towards your brow and out into a cat eye shape I’m going for a super dramatic intense eye so I’m not blending it out too much at the edges I’m just blending it enough so that there’s not a really harsh line around the colour. If you don’t want it to be this intense
then feel free to blend it more and maybe add a transition colour. Bring that
pink down onto your waterline and blend it and connect it up to the outer wing that
you’ve got going on so it all looks like one big cat eye shape. Add some purple to your crease and blend it out, stick quite close to your crease you don’t want to go too high up towards your brow bone you want that to be mostly pink, but bring the purple out into that cat eye shape because it will help your eyes look like they’re turning up in the outer corners. Then pack that
purple onto your lid and bring it on to your waterline but keep super tight to your waterline you don’t want this to go out nearly as far as the pink does. Then it’s time for the
dreaded liner. For the inner corner I’m starting at my top lash line and drawing
a line going downwards and I’m just following the natural shape of my eye as
if that lash line was continuing downwards, then using that line as a base, draw another line to connect it up to your waterline and fill in
that little triangle it makes. For the outer wing it’s pretty much the same
process except you’re gonna start with your lower lash line and follow the natural
curve of that line instead. Try and keep this wing in the pink area because it’s going to look
a bit strange if you have a pink wing and a black wing that don’t match up. Then using that line as a base draw another line coming off it to meet up with your lash line. As you
get toward your lash line you want to kind of curve the line so it naturally follows your lash line. Then fill in that wing and for that blank patch on your eye with no liner on it,
just do a thin line along your lash line so the two wings meet up with each other. Add some lashes and you’re done. Map out your mouth with some eyeshadow and a detail brush, and to make it more catlike I’m bringing it up in the centre to meet my nose. For this look
the teeth are gonna come onto the lips, so we want the top teeth to
stay on the top lip the bottom teeth to stay on the bottom lip, if you try and cross them over onto the opposite lip then where your lips meet is going to be really really visible and obvious and we want to try and hide our mouth inside this other mouth. So when you’re mapping this out make sure you leave enough space on the top the bottom so that you can get teeth the size that you
want them. For the outer corners of the mouth you want to try and position them so they sit just below your cheekbones because this is going to make the mouth look much more sunken in. Once you’re happy with the shape of the mouth it’s time to add the teeth, and you could either map them all out with the eyeshadow and the detail brush and then go over them with face paint, or you can just go straight in
with the face paint, whatever you prefer. For each fang I’m drawing an upside down raindrop and making the tip of it curve inwards slightly to give it a more kind of curved feel. When you’re doing the fangs that go over your lips try and keep your lips really relaxed, if you purse them or trying to tighten the skin while you draw them on when you relax your face again those fangs are
going to look really wonky and the lines won’t line up properly. For the bottom fangs the rain drops of the right way and you just want to make all of these ones
fit in the spaces between your top row of teeth. Then fill them all in with white face paint. For the gums I’m using Mehron Paradise Paint in red, and a detail brush,
and I’m adding a little triangle between each tooth to join them up and if the gum
underneath the tooth is visible then I’m filling that in as well. Basically
anywhere where you would naturally see gums paint red. Then fill in any remaining
space in the mouth with black so go between all of those teeth. This is
where you can really kind of clean up those lines and make sure you’ve got nice
sharp points on the teeth. To make the mouth look a bit more
three-dimensional take a matter brown eyeshadow and go around the outside edge of the lips and blend it slightly with the skin this is like the shadow that you would
get as the lips kind of curl under toward the mouth. To make the teeth look
more 3d take some matte black or grey eyeshadow and add some shadows on to those teeth.
So fangs are normally curved so for the shadow on the top of the tooth it would curve round and follow the gum line, and the shadow going down the side of the tooth would be on the outer edge, so the edge thats furthest away from the centre of your face. The best way to work out where shadows and highlights would go is to look at some kind of reference so even though you probably
don’t have fangs if you look at your own teeth when you do a really big grin and you
should be able to see what parts are shadow what parts are highlight what part just tooth, and if you’ve got a dog or any other kind of fanged creature hanging around your house then you could try and have a peek in its mouth. To make everything that’s inside the mouth look like it INSIDE the mouth we need to add some shadow coming off
the lips, so with that same black or grey matte eyeshadow go around the inside edge of the lips, so on top of the gums and the teeth and add the shadow that that would be casting. Now that we’ve got some shadows we need to add some highlights. I’m using the same
white face paint I used for the teeth and I’m adding the highlight almost in
the center but just slightly to the opposite side of the shadow. Because this is the same colour that we used for the base of the teeth it’s not gonna be a
super intense highlight, putting the shadows on will have it darkened the teeth
slightly so you will get some effect from it, but if you want it to be MORE
highlighty then you could mix a tiny bit of light blue into the white. The cheeks were looking a little bit bare so I decided to add the hot pink as a blush and it was a big mistake, it was way
too much, so if you’ve got any kind of pink toned blusher then you could use that and it would look good or you can use the hot pink and then just tone it down with a face powder. To give a whiskery feel without actually drawing whiskers on, take an eyeliner and give yourself some freckles.
I’m focusing the freckles mainly on the apples of my cheeks because that’s
where they would be on a cat ifa cat were a person…probably. Painless tattoo time! For the
lettering it’s really hard to get even lettering especially if you’re doing it on
yourself, so I made these little stencils just with a craft knife and some thick craft paper, and I’m just holding the stencil flat against my skin, taking a makeup wedge
and dipping it in some black and blue face paint and then patting it over the stencil. Because this lettering was so thin it
didn’t really come out so well but it was good enough as a guide to then
go over with the detail brush and just some of that black and blue face paint. To line the letters up if you fold up one edge of the stencil then you’ll be able
to see the previous letter, and it will be much easier to get them in line. If you don’t get them
inline though, don’t worry you can just wipe it off with a wet piece of tissue or
cotton ball or something, wait for that patch of skin to
completely dry and then try again. Repeat that process for all your letters. Wait for the face paint to completely dry,
take a fluffy brush and some face powder I think this works much better with loose
face powder but you could still do it with the pressed stuff and absolutely cover those letters in face powder, like more face powder than you’ve ever used in your life, then brush off all of the
excess, and TADA!!! Painless Tattoos!! For the stripes I painted them on free hand so just using a detail brush and some black and blue face paint mixed together and then
fill in all those stripes. I prefer the way the stencil stuff came out, I think it’s
much easier to get a translucent covering of the face paint and for it to look even when you’re using a stencil and with the hand painted stuffthe face paint is really thick and opaque so you don’t get that kind of tattoo feel, but anyway… Once all your stripes are on wait for them to completely dry, cover them in a ton of face powder and
brush off all of the the excess. If you’re impatient like me and you didn’t wait for it all to
dry then the face powder will stick to any wet patches and it will make it look a bit
uneven, and the face paint will transfer onto your brush, and then transfer anywhere
where your brush touches. So if you end up with bits of tattoo where they
shouldn’t be, you can just take a wet cotton bud or cotton ball or tissue and just clean that up. The teeth weren’t quite grisly enough so I went back in with a detail brush and some Mehron Paradise in red and I just added some blood to the tips of the teeth. Don’t go too crazy with the blood because you don’t
want to cover up that beautiful shading that you did earlier. Then I’m taking a feather and cutting it up into smaller pieces, and sticking it in between the teeth
using some lash glue. I’m keeping them mainly on one side of my mouth so that I’m not
kind of covering up the whole mouth with feathers. We’ve got blood on the teeth so we need
some blood on the feathers, so use that same red face paint and just add blood to the feathers and kind of rough the feathers up a bit. For the piercings I’m applying some spirit gum where I want the piercing to be, waiting for it to get tacky and then pressing the metal ball into it, and just holding it for a couple of seconds til it sticks.A better way to do this would be to get some plastic silver balls from a craft shop and stick them on with lash glue. Lash glue and plastic balls are much easier to get hold of, and if one of them
does fall off then it’s no big deal you’re not gonna be scrabbling around on
the floor looking for a piece of jewellery. For the septum ring I just took a body
jewellery ring and stuck it up my nose. And that’s it guys! Add a wig, add cat ears or contacts or whatever else you feel finishes off the look
