So last week, for one of my nights out the theme was Zoo Animals, and I didnt really fancy wearing anything zoo animal like (also i dont really own any zoo animal like clothing!) so i thought i’d be creative with my makeup instead, and this is what I came up with!
So this is what I created/recreated! (I looked at so many different tutorials on youtube for inspiration! Shaanxo’s was particularly good if you’re interested!)
Anyway, so I did my face makeup as usual, and I did my eyebrows a little darker than I usually would, as I wanted them to stand out. Then I put sellotape on the corners of my eyes, to give my eyeshadow a really sharp edge, and I took a light brown and blended it through my crease.
Then I took a shimmery darker brown shade and put it on my eyelids. I Was going to leave the eyeshadow like that but I felt like it was a bit too dark, so I added some gold eyeshadow onto the middle of my eyelids. I created this look using the original Naked Palette, but you could use any brown/gold shadows and they would work fine!
I did a dramatic winged eyeliner, and I extended it past the inner corners of my eyes to make them look more feline- which was actually very difficult! I had to redo it several times so dont worry if you dont get it first try!
I added lots and lots of bronzer, to make my face look a lot more bronzed, and After adding mascara, and peeling off the sellotape, I took the same brown eyeshadow that I used in my crease and created random splodges of colour on my cheeks and temples. I then outlined them using random brush strokes with a liquid eyeliner.
I drew on and filled in a little black nose, and added some holes where the whiskers would be on a leapord, I also drew a black line from my cupids bow to my lips to connect everything together. I outlined my lips with liquid eyeliner, and I smudged some black eyeshadow on the top, to set it in place. I applied some pink lipstick on the centre of my lips and that was my look done!!
I decided to wear all black, and curl my hair and that was the look!
My roommate dressed as a bee! hahaha not very zoo animal but we justified it as in the summer the bees hang around the bins… so it counted!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
