Black Cat DIY Halloween Makeup

Today I wanted to share with you a GREAT last minute Halloween costume idea. You only need a couple things to pull it off, and it is super quick too!

Black Cat DIY Halloween Makeup

To pull it off you need:

- A black cat “kit” from a Halloween store, which will include some ears and a tail, OR you can make your own ears or tail with some craft store felt, a headband, and some furry fabric for the tail!

- Dramatic cat-eye false eyelashes. Here I used the some Ardell criss-cross winged lashes, but I definitely could have gone bigger and more dramatic!

- Black eyeliner, or black makeup crayon from the Halloween store.

- A black turtleneck, black jeans/skirt, and black shoes to complete your look! I think the black turtleneck is the best option personally but of course any black top would work.

That’s IT! Then just follow the makeup I did above and you are now a purrrr-fect black Halloween cat.

Notes: I colored my entire top lip with black, and then extended the line out further to make it look like a cat’s whisker area. The nose is supposed to be just a little kitty nose, so I didn’t fill in the whole nose, just the “top” part and sides and a little of the middle. Feel free to really go crazy and make more of a dark smoky eye, and get even crazier lashes! Iwent with more of a simple cat look for this, but you can embellish and really make it your own.

I love the earthy, dark tones of fall. These Articles of Society jeans are a really pretty dark burgundy and I keep thinking of everything I can pair them with. I normally don’t wear any lace types of things but this Laila Jayde top was too pretty to ignore. I had never heard of Laila Jayde before but now that I have I’m definitely a fan. Think Ella Moss with a modern twist.

This weekend I think we’ll be laying low, running some errands and just spending some time with family that are visiting from out of town. I’m going to try to squeeze in a trip to a pumpkin patch, I’m excited for the changing weather and fall activities!

Today I’m showcasing some new arrivals for fall from Piperlime!
These gold dusted skinnies can easily go from a casual dinner styled with flats, to a holiday party with strappy pumps. The gold shimmer is so unique and perfect for the fall and winter when you want to wear those darker colors. Speaking of darker colors, a black sweatshirt is pretty much an essential. I love that this one is just slightly embossed, the little details make it interesting.

Because we’ve actually been having amazingly nice weather for October, I styled my fall look with these great Steve Madden cut out heels. This is a look you could wear out for a nice fall dinner, and in this feminine embossed sweatshirt you won’t get cold in the restaurant!(Isn’t that the worst!?)

My all time favorite blogger is probably Blair from Atlantic-Pacific.
One of the reasons I love her is her talent for finding quirky, fun prints and styling them just right. That is why the second I saw this adorable jellyfish skirt, I knew I needed it! I could just picture giving it the ‘Atlantic-Pacific’ touch it needed, and I’m already partial to animal themed clothing as it is! I couldn’t resist.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that over the weekend my grandpa passed away. It was unexpected, and I’m going to miss him very much. Despite the sadness it was actually a pretty beautiful time. His last hours were spent completely surrounded by tons and tons of family (we couldn’t all fit in the hospital room at the same time!) Some of my cousins sang a beautiful song for him, and we sat reminiscing about the good times we had with him. I really wish I had spent more time with him and I’d urge anyone with grandparents or elderly family to please call them, or visit them soon because you never know what can happen in a day. It really made me appreciate those I love, and re-dedicate myself to spending more time with them often!

I hope your week is going well so far, it’s finally starting to get chilly here and make me excited for scary movies, apple cider, and pumpkin carving!

I am ALL about the earthy, dark tones lately. The navy blue and dark green of these accessories really stood out to me for fall. They’ll totally complement any of my other dark colors as we get into fall and winter! I went a little more preppy styling them here, with this amazing peplum ASOS top that I kind of think is an essential for any girl who works in an office or professional setting.

Speaking of professional setting- this week I started online real estate school! I think it’ll be an awesome career path for me and I’m pretty thrilled about it. The only downside is that I have about a million things going on lately, so it’s hard to squeeze in but luckily it is online, so I make it work when I can! Have any of you gotten your real estate license? What do you think?

I hope you had an amazing week!
