Hello everyone! I hope you are having a marvelous day.
Today I am sharing yet another Halloween look inspired by garden fairies! I love the bright colors paired with the luminous glow of the skin creating a soft, flirty look. To see how to get the look then continue below!
Step 1: After appling your usual foundation and concealer, place a small piece of tape on the outer portion of the eye to create a crisp line later. Then blend a white creamy base all over your lid to prevent the eyeshadow from creasing as well as creating more vibrant pigmentation. Here I used NYX’s Jumbo Pencil in Milk.
Step 2: Apply a richly pigmented lime green shade over the entire eyelid extending it in a cat eye shape. Pack on the color so that full vibrancy is reached. I used the NYX’s Primal Colors shadow in Hot Green.
Step 3: Next I took a mix of a lavender and blue shades to soften the edges of the green and add dimension to the look. I also extended this out in a cat eye shape. I used a L’Oreal single eyeshadow in Ocean and the Mary Kay Duo in Mirage.
Step 4: I ran the lavender shade on my lower lash line and into my inner corner. I then took a light shimmery shadow in my inner corner to help open up my eyes. This is a great trick for hooded eyes such as my own. I used the Mary Kay Duo in Mirage and the Lorac Pro Palette Shadow in Nude.
Step 5: Taking a hot pink eyeshadow or blush, place a concentrated amount in the very center of your lower lash line. Pack on the color to achieve desired intensity. I then took a small amount of the lime green shade and used that to diffuse the colors on the lower lash line to remove any hard edges. I used NYX’s Primal Colors in Hot Pink and Hot Green.
Step 6: Take the same hot pink eyeshadow or blush and run that along your cheeks in a C-shape. Build up the color till you look quite flushed. Then take a pink highlight powder and apply it liberally to the high points of your cheeks. I love adding more glow then usual to the look as I feel it adds a whimsical “fairy” touch. I used a mixture of NYX’s Primal Colors in Hot Pink and e.l.f.’s HD Powder Blush in Pink Passion. For my highlight, I applied the Stila The Naked Palette highlight.
Step 7: Apply mascara and false lashes if you wish. Here comes the fun part! Take your lash glue (or any other adhesive you have) and place a tiny dot on each little flower and carefully place them around the corner of your eye using tweezers. I did not have any particular pattern that I was following. I simply began by framing my outer corner and having them cascade down to my cheek. Get creative and have fun with this part! Add as many as you like! I used Covergirl’s Clump Crusher mascara. The flowers can be found in the nail art section in your local beauty store.
Step 8: Apply a berry toned lipstick that has a warm undertone to match the warmth of the blush. I am absolutely in love with this shade. It is one of my favorites from the NYX Matte Lip Cream line. Expect a review in the near future! This shade is in Prague.
We are done with the makeup look! Add flowers to your hair, leaf earrings, and wings to complete the look! I adore the playful, lighthearted feel of this look.
