Halloween Fun: House Mouse - Master Class - iVillage Beauty Makeup Studio

Any scampering little critters in your home who long to look the part? In four short steps, this adorable House Mouse is yours. Klutz mice usually wear black t-shirts and pants. Find mouse ears and tail at a costume supply store.

STEP 1: Apply a full whiteface. Still using the sponge, dab on a faint pink rouge at the cheekbones. Create pink by mixing red and white and find the cheekbones by asking your paintee to suck in his or her cheeks.

STEP 2: Using your brush, frame the whole face in black. Start by shaping the three points, at the top and on the sides. Keep it symmetrical by keeping your eye on the bridge of the nose. Once the points are in place, use long continuous strokes to join them.

STEP 3: Add the black eyebrows, whiskers, nose, etc.

STEP 4: Ask your paintee to pucker up, then apply the ruby red lips with a fingertip. You might want to use a brush around the edges.
