It’s fierce, it’s bold, and it’s sure to turn heads at any party. So grab your makeup bag and let’s get started!

Step 1: Prep your skin
Before you start applying your makeup, make sure your skin is clean and moisturized. Apply a light layer of foundation or primer to create a smooth base for your makeup.

Step 2: Create the base
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a light layer of yellow-orange face paint to your forehead, cheeks, and nose. Blend it outwards towards your hairline and jawline for a natural-looking gradient.

Step 3: Add the spots
Using a small brush, add leopard spots in various sizes and shapes to your face. You can use black face paint or liquid eyeliner for this step. Start with larger spots on your forehead and cheeks, and gradually add smaller spots as you work your way down your face.

Step 4: Define the features
Use a brown or black eyeliner to define your brows, nose, and lips. For the nose, draw a small triangular shape on the tip of your nose and blend it outwards for a more natural look. For the lips, draw a thin line above your upper lip to create a “muzzle” effect.

Step 5: Add the finishing touches
Apply black mascara and false lashes to your eyes for a dramatic look. You can also add a touch of shimmer or glitter to your cheeks or eyelids for some extra sparkle.

Step 6: Complete the costume
To complete the leopard look, wear a leopard print outfit or accessories. You can also add some leopard ears and a tail for a more complete costume.

And there you have it – a makeup-based leopard Halloween costume that’s sure to turn heads! Don’t be afraid to get creative with your spots and add your own unique touch to the look. So grab your makeup and get ready to unleash your inner feline this Halloween!
