How To Face Paint A Cat
In this video, Juliet Eve, a professional face painter, shows us how one can face paint a cat using simple painting techniques.
Hi. Today, we are going to do a face makeup here on Ruby and I'm going to do How to Face Paint a Cat. Okay.
There we go. Keep nice and still for me then. There we go.
So I'll put the white over the nose around the muzzle. Turn your face slightly that way, that's a good girl. So, this is the white in the middle, and I'll take a little bit up, just up to the middle there.
Then I'm going to take the silver, blend the silver into the white around the edge. Good girl. Keep your eyes closed for a minute for me.
Well done. It is brilliant. So I've got some black on the sponge as well.
And I'm just going to sort of, edge it, sort of where you might have kind of fluffy fur in effect around the edge of this cat face. Now, I want you to close your eyes for me because we're going to give you green cat's eyes. So, now, I'm going to get the black brush and do the outline now.
Alright, Ruby, put your head up a little bit. That is a good girl. So first of all, go around the outline of the ears.
So, up here, down the corner, give it a little wobble down the side there. It just gives it a bit of expression. And then for the inside of the ear, I do that and then just blend that down.
It just looks like the inside of the ear. Okay, round, down, give it a little wobble at the edge and then follow that darker bit I have there. So, it looks like that's the outside of the ear and there is the inside.
That's brilliant. For the top here, I'm just going to give it few little hairy bits out there. That's for sure, so we give you a little pink nose, just like that.
Perhaps we will give you pink lips as well, shall we? Now, can you open your mouth a tiny bit for me, Ruby, just a little bit? That's a good girl. Now, we do a very thin line down the center here with a little “A” at the bottom. And then, from the corner of the mouth, with the finest brush line you can make, I am going to curl it round.
It is kind of a cute little cat face. And then, tiny little whisker spots, just a few. Now, can you close your eyes again for me? Keep them closed.
So lift the eyes up like that and just for fun, we will create a little eye shape on the lid. Can you keep your eyes closed for me love? Keep them closed. Good girl.
And so, we just try and make your whiskers planted literally where the whisker spots are. Let's put some glitter on you, shall we? There we are, we'll put some glitter on your cheeks, little bit there on your lip, on those ears. Can you close your eyes? Tiny bit just on the edge.
Maybe on the nose as well, got to put it there, too. And that's how to face paint a cat. .
