Halloween? Maybe?

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Trying to be crafty, this year for Halloween I'm going to be a Faerie Queen. Or princess. Or anything really that's in a long purple ballgown with faerie wings. I wanted some fantasy appropriate makeup to go along with that and unsurprisingly headed to the internet for inspiration. The black designs on the pink side aren't perfect, I started getting confused about where I wanted lines to go. Still I think it's a pretty good representation, though I'm already considering possibly going for broke, covering my brows and doing this on an even larger scale.

I'll you know!

The reason that that I've split up the product list like this is because for the blue and pink I used the eyeshadows lightest to darkest from the outside in so I could have a really subtle gradient. It wasn't super complicated but I just kept going in there with a blending brush and starting from the outside swept it in circles over the NYX Jumbo Pencil until it had the color I wanted.
