View Full Version : Feline look; nose.

I was curious at the thought of cosplaying a feline. Though, with their petite noses, my interest was perked. How would I go about making a cat's nose?

I went through pictures of half-felines and I found this one for reference:


Any suggestions?

I'd guess mess with several tones of foundations and a brush and keep the sides and underside of the nose darker. o-o

I've done the nose of a cat before but it's been years (more then 10) since I've done it. I do recommend that you use reference pictures taped to your mirror while doing it. Also if you type the words, "cat's" musical, makeup, cosplay on Google it'll pull up pics from the musical Cat's. From there you can find pics of people who have done their makeup so they look like cats.

Here's one site using those keywords on Google:

There was a girl who did an AMAZING mithra for ACEN, she used dark brown paint/make up and did the whole bottom side of her nose (even a little in the nostril) so also did the lighter brown upper. It looked very realistic, she actually looked like a mithra Try that, get brown pencils and such and shade it in.

Cat nose:
Darker theatre makeup--a dark brown creme should work
Light--about a half-shade lighter than your skintone

1. Paint in the sides of your nose with the brown. Start at the inner corners of the eye and work your way down. At the tip of the nose, apply in the shape of a cat nose--use the picture for reference-- and blend gently with a bit of the lighter makeup, with which you'll work your way up to the nose until you're able to blend it smoothly with your own skin tone.
2. Use a deep brown eyeshadow, preferably about the shade of the makeup, over the entire eyelid area, even the recess above the eyelid and beneath the brow. Blend with a lighter shade as you near the brow, and then blend with the edges of the brown paint at the corner of your eyes. This will give a continuity look, as well as making it look as if your nose is as prominent as a cat's.
Sorry if this is slightly confusing. I can't think of how to explain it better. It's easier done than said. Oh, and don't forget a coat of powder over the whole thing to make it blend smoothly and stay.
