I hope you’re all doing good! It’s time for Halloween look number 3…
I’m so excited for this one as it’s so different to all the other looks I’ve done. What inspired this look was an eyeshadow palette from Revolution that I’m obsessed with. It’s full of gorgeous burnt pink and brown shades that really reminded me of an enchanted forest. I also wanted to really get into the character of a forest fairy by styling my hair to look like I literally live in a forest. When I thought of this I imagined being wrapped in vines that grew everywhere and twisted in my hair! This is a really simple look to do. Keep reading to find out how to do it 🙂
- Revolution Reloaded Newtrials 2 eyeshadow palette
- Primark Glitter Junkie eyeshadow palette
- L’Oreal matte lipstick in 655 Copper Clutch
- Craft leaf vine
- Clip in Hair extensions
- Hair grips
Start by doing your regular face make up to give a nice even, natural base. This is more of a soft, realistic Halloween look.
I took the matte, cranberry shade from the Revolution Reloaded Newtrials 2 palette and applied it to the high points of my face (cheekbones, sides of nose, above and below lips.) I also applied this to the centre of my brows and my eyelids.
Next I took a shimmery, green shade from the Primark Glitter Junkie eyeshadow palette and also applied this to the high points of my face, straight above the cranberry shadow. I also used this to fill in the middle and tail of my brows.
I then took a glittery white shadow from the same Primark palette to highlight.
For this look, I didn’t apply any mascara as I wanted it to look very natural and subtle but you can if you want a more dramatic look!
For lips, I used this incredible matte lipstick by L’Oreal in 655 Copper Clutch. I feel like this shade matched the look so well.
To finish off the face, I used some glitter face glue to apply a few craft leaves next to tie the forest theme into the make up.
I first clipped in some hair extensions that were lighter than my own hair colour and divided them into two. I then twisted some craft vine around each extension section . Next, I brought each twist across my forehead and secured them in place with some hair grips. I them just pulled to make them messier until I was happy. To finish off, I backcombed my natural hair to match the tousled look. I loved how this turned out and it really looks like vines are growing through your hair! 🙂
There we go! This was super fun to do and I really hope it gave you some inspiration for Halloween.
