Dark Forest Nymph (Halloween Makeup)

I’m back!!! I apologized for missing last week, I was down with a cold and fever, not to mention I had guests staying over. I finally was able to recover on the weekend, and started cleaning up. I realized that Halloween is in like 2 weeks, so I had to start this week with a Halloween Makeup tutorial.

As you all know, I have been doing several creatives with Daniela of Daniela Majic Photography. She is an amazing photographer, and she has a thing for flowers and anything gorgeous. Anyways, I think I got the flower bug from her, because I decided to go make myself a Flower Crown. Michael’s was having a sale on some of the fake flowers, so I grabbed some and created my own Flower Crown.

Since I made the Flower Crown, I wanted to do a creepy but pretty Halloween makeup so I decided to do this dark fairy look. I was going to draw teeth on my lips, but decided to do a puckered lips area instead. Also, I added squiggly lines under my eyes because I thought why nooot?! I didn’t want to make my under eyes too plain. Since I draw inspiration from the flowers, I thought we can just say the squiggly lines were inspired by roots and such.

Anyways, I used mostly Kat Von D for this look. Another reason why you should get Kat Von D Shade + Light face and eye palettes! They are amazing! So, for this look, mostly just contouring with different shades of browns and greys, and black to add depth. Always start with the lightest brown, then deepen it with grey, and eventually with black, especially on the neck area. I left the highlighting last. I highlighted using mostly using the white and yellow-beige from the Shade+Light face/eye palettes.

You don’t have to do the nose the way I did it, I wanted to show a the nose is somewhat degraded since everything else in the face is pretty sunken in.

For the eyes, at first I wore the red/white (bloodshot?) contacts at first which looks pretty sultry. Then, I decided I wanted to give the whiteout contacts, which give a totally different feel altogether. The one thing with the whiteout contacts, though, you can’t really see much when you wear it. It’s quite uncomfortable since  my sight was quite compromised.
