I’m partnering with Snazaroo today to share an adorable Halloween costume that is easy to put together and features Snazaroo face paint. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, so I wasn’t sure how well it would turn out. It was my first experience with using face paint and I’m happy to report that it turned out super cute. Check out our easy DIY cat burglar costume.
The costume itself is so easy to put together with items we already owned. Elliot already had a black shirt, black pants, and black shoes in his closet. We also had a cat costume accessory kit with the cat ears and tail in our dress up box. I only had to buy the black knit cap and a burlap runner that I turned into his loot bag.
Painting his face with a cat nose, cat whiskers and burglar mask using Snazaroo’s black face paint was super easy. I started with a black nose and whiskers. I used the paint brush that came with our kit and a little water to moisten the black paint.
Then I drew a mask outline around his eyes and filled it in. I kept the mask on the smaller side, just around his eyes so that it didn’t interfere in his cat face. Check out the Snazaroo website for more elaborate face painting tutorials and ideas. I love the pumpkin mask idea!
Snazaroo has a wide range of colors, glitters, and stencils that parents can use to easily recreate a spooky look for Halloween or a more fun look for birthday parties or playdates. It’s easy to “Paint a Smile” this Halloween.
Snazaroo Face Paint is washable which means I could use a wet cotton swab to correct any slight mistakes I made as I created the cat burglar face. While the paint cleaned up easily, I was surprised how well it stayed on too. Elliot opted to wear his costume and face paint after our photo shoot last weekend, and it lasted all day. Then it easily washed off in the shower that night with a wet washcloth. I was honestly surprised how easy it was to work with and clean off afterwards. I wouldn’t hesitate to us it again on for another costume design.
Snazaroo’s Non-Toxic Face Paint Kit is recommended for kids 3+ and is available on Amazon. Their face paint is made in the UK with FDA approved ingredients. It’s suitable for sensitive skin because it’s paraben and fragrance-free, and it’s fully compliant with US and EU toy and cosmetic regulations.
