Forest fairy makeup tutorial: your step-by-step guide
The key to this look is standout eyes and lips with a hint of gold. On a regular night, you might prefer either a strong eye or statement lip, not both. But it’s Halloween, so you can enjoy the freedom of going all out with your makeup look.
1. Smoke out eyes
Dip your brush in the lightest hue of the L’Oréal Paris La Petite Palette Eyeshadow in Feminist and dust it across your lid up to the brow. Next, use the teal colour to trace your lower lash line and smudge it out.
2. Add some shimmer
To create a hint of sparkle on your lids, generously dab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine onto your top lid and blend into the inner corner of your eyes.
3. Draw on a precise cat-eye
Line the upper lash line with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Liner and flick it into a dramatic wing at the outer corner. If you need help drawing a straight line, use the Infallible Flash Cat Eye’s detachable wing stencil. It helps to get the perfect cat eye in a flash, every time. Simply remove the stencil from the lid, place it on your eye to align with your lower lash line and fill in the stencil.
PRO-TIP: if your eyeliner starts to get dry, pump it back into the cap to refill it with product into the felt tip, so you can get the most precise line in one swipe.
4. Layer your mascara
Get voluminous fairy lashes by layering a few coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Blackest Black onto your upper lashes. Next, use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy, and apply to the bottom lashes to add some edge to your look.
5. Fill and trace lips
For a ruby red pout, reach for L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-Ly in Love. Fill your lips straight from the tube or use a brush for a super-precise application. Next, trace your upper and lower lips with L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner in In-Matte in Manhattan to boost your lip colour, to make your pout longer-wearing, and give the illusion of more voluptuous lips.
6. Add shimmer to your lips
What’s a fairy, without any fairy dust? To add that extra shimmer to your makeup look, dab a little L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine onto the centre of the top and bottom lips and blend for iridescent lips.
To complete your forest fairy costume, knot your hair in a bun and wrap it with a green or gold ribbon. Then throw on green tank top or dress, a wand and a set of delicate wings and you’re ready to paint the town with pixie dust!
