Halloween is in the corner, are you looking for pretty fairy makeup for your party? Because you don’t have to scare people with creepy makeup all the time. You can kill them with your beauty. When creating a fairy fantasy Makeup piece, remember to go bold and daring. Anything goes. Using the brightest brights and the darkest darks will undoubtedly allow you to achieve the look you’re going for.
Before you begin to make sure the face is clean (including clean of makeup) and dry. Moisturizing the face is also a good idea. Many Fantasy Makeup styles require the eyebrows to be covered up. This allows the artist (you in this case!) to start with a clean pallet and the eyebrows can be redrawn and repositioned or left off completely (depending on the look).
There are two main ways to cover up an eyebrow: using a children’s, washable glue stick (preferably the Elmer’s washable disappearing purple school glue stick) or using spirit gum along with molding wax.
Once the eyebrows are covered up comes the fun part: the makeup! Choosing the right makeup is crucial and brighter the colors the better. Good bold makeup or any high pigment makeup line.
Equally as crucial is choosing the right brushes. When picking your brush to keep in mind the size, shape, and texture directly relates to how well you’re going to blend, shade and make straight lines.
Using a mixing medium with the loose powder makeup works really well allowing you to apply the makeup with a brush creating a smooth, flawless face. Use multiple colors to blend and create amazing contours.
Don’t forget to add the accessories. Many Fantasy Makeup designs will call for false eyelashes giving the model a dramatic, dreamy look.
Adding well-positioned rhinestones and glitter will set the look off and draw all eyes on you. But too many will make you look like a disco ball (unless of course, that’s what you want)
Adding feathers, stickers, leaves, jewels, stick-on tattoos, etc are also good accompaniments when making a fairy fantasy style.
