Want to Use Makeup to Look Like Your Dog? Here’s How

Ilana makeup looks like husky

You know how some people sort of look like their dogs — the same shaggy hair, droopy eyes, jowls, whatever? Well, pet parents can now look exactly like their dogs, thanks to a video tutorial from Israeli makeup artist Ilani and a new line of dog-inspired products from MAC Cosmetics.

If you’re the pet parent of a Siberian Husky and for some reason want to be your dog’s doppelgänger, Ilani has posted an 8-minute video on YouTube demonstrating exactly how to achieve that look. The process is sped up in the video and actually takes longer than 8 minutes — and probably a whole lot longer for anyone who’s not a makeup pro.

For those of you who are pet parents of other breeds, you can look not-exactly like your dog with the new Haute Dogs makeup line by MAC Cosmetics.

“(Wo)man’s best friend is barking up the right tree in a well-groomed collection of new hues that are sure to enhance your pedigree,” the company says on its website. “From aristocratic to collars-off cool, you’ll be lapping up accolades as best in show!”

The collection includes “luscious, buttery fur tones for eyes and regal berries for lips.”

MAC Haute Dogs makeup

It’s unfortunately not haute that MAC Cosmetics tests its products on animals — perhaps even dogs. So you might want to try achieving these same looks with a cruelty-free makeup brand.

Important Reminder: Halloween is just two months away!
