*Too busy to bother with a complicated costume? Slip on a black sweater, leggings and boots and follow these quick and easy eye and nail ideas for the *purr-*fect look! *
Brings out your wilder side with this simple yet stunning eye shadow:
*Step 1: *Using an eye-shadow palette that contains yellow, bright green and dark brown (like the Love in Paris Eyeshadow Pallet in Pardon My French, $10, at NYXCosmetics.com), first sweep yellow shadow from the lash line to the eyebrow. Next, smudge bright green shadow along the lower lash line. Then brush green over the lid (extending above the crease) and outward past the eyebrow at a 45-degree angle from the corner of the eye.
Step 2: Dip a slanted eyeliner brush in dark brown shadow and carefully dot along the crease of the eye following the top of the green “wing.” Then dot it along the upper and lower lashlines, extending out along the bottom of the wing. Use a shadow brush to fill in the dotted lines with the same dark brown hue. Finish with false eyelashes and two coats of mascara.
Adding metallic stick-on nail decals (like OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in Metallic Waves, $6, at amazon.com) can make your “claws” look festive and fabulous—in a flash!
*To do: *Simply remove the top layer of film from the sticker, then peel away the backing and press the strip over the nail bed so it adheres smoothly. Next, fold the excess tab over the edge of the nail and file along the crease in a downward motion. Finish with a clear top coat.
Add furry ears (shown above), a tail and a bow tie (Adult Cat Accessory Kit, $8, at PartyCity.com) plus Black Whiskers ($1, at BirthdayInABox.com). _Meow! _
