Beauties on Fire : Movie - Book

This week's theme was a tricky one for me. I'm talking about #BeautiesOnFire collaboration theme post. I'm not a big fan of books or movies, I still watch cartoons and I really appreciate a nice animated movie. All the other girls were excited about this topic but I was like "Whaaaaaat? What am I supposed to do?" my favorite movie is Lion King and I was like I can't do a lion makeup, can I? I actually decided to try it. It's not Halloween yet and I don't have the right makeup tools to do so but I am going just try and we'll see what I will look like.


Firstly I was like I should create a look from a character who is in a book that became movie so it would be something like a combo. But I'm not sure if I am that close to a character like that as close I am to Mufasa, soooooo you know... I had to do this!! This is going to be playful, like I am drawing, I'm not so good at drawing, I can't even draw a straight line on a piece of paper but I'm so excited about this look and I hope I'll archive it.

Sadly, don't have a pure orange foundation or something like that but I do have some products with orange undertone, so I'll use them and we'll see how it will come up.

What I used 
L. A. Girl Pro BB cream GBB941-FAIR
The Body Shop Extra Virgin Mineral shade:208 Golden Vanilla 
The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner 01
Erre Due Eye Liner Pencil 113
Cien Volume Mascara Extreme Lashes 
Davis accent Liplin Pencils 008 &  011
Golden Rose velvet matte lipstick 07

What I did 
 I began with the eyes. I needed a defined cat eye so I used my liquid eyeliner to archive that. I started with the corners of my eyes, to give shape and then some eyeliner on the lid and the cat eye was finished when I put on my waterline some color with my pencil eyeliner. Some mascara and the eyes are ready. Then I put two layers of my BB cream to the whole face because I wanted the orange undertone to be more obvious. I finished the face with the lose powder that I use for contouring because it's dark and has an orange undertone as well. I didn't put this on my nose, upper lip and chin, because the fur of Mufasa is lighter there. Now face is ready, let's start painting. I saw that Mufasa has black, round eyebrows, I don't have a black eyebrow pencil so I used my eye liner pencil. I started painting Mufasa's brows on top of mine. After that I had to create his nose. His lines over there are defined so I used my lip liner pencil to do the lines and a lighter pink lipstick to fill it. On the lips, I used a dark brown lip liner and my black eyeliner because I wanted to give the shape I saw he has. For the finishing touch, I had to do some whiskers. This was actually the hardest part for me because I had to make them even to the both sides and I only had one shot. If I would make a mistake and would try to fix it, I would ruin my base on the cheek. I don't have them that even actually but, it doesn't look that bad. 
That's the look so far. I look like a kitty but not that much like Mufasa. Maybe I could be Mufasa on his childhood with very defined eyebrows. But I'm not done yet, I need some lion hair. Mufasa's hair isn't that tangled for a lion so I tried to create something like that. 

To be honest I tangled my hair a lot but it kept falling.... I don't know... Maybe I should have used hair spray but I wasn't sure how I would brush it off. So that's me as Mufasa. That was the best theme for me so far because I played with makeup and I laughed so hard when I was looking at me on the mirror. Don't forget to check out the other posts as well.
