Do you ever look at some leaves and think, “Mmm yup, I want to put that in my hair.” If yes, (or if you’re in need of a Halloween costume), this Forest Fairy look is perfect for you!
1.) Start with your base: Prime and moisturize your face to ensure an even surface for your foundation. Put concealer on any dark spots on your face or neck that you’d like to conceal. Blend out your concealer with a damp beauty sponge or blending brush. Apply foundation to your face and blend it out. Now is the time to do your brows as well!
2.) Let’s finish out your face makeup! Use shade Dancers from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette (a warm orange) on a fluffy brush and apply it from your cheekbones to the apples of your cheeks. Add some to the tip of your nose as well to give yourself a flushed look. Use shade Wisp (icy champagne) and add it to your cheekbones along with the tip of your nose, and the bridge of your nose. Your forest fairy look won’t be complete without some freckles! Use shade Manet of Lip Sketch (or a deep brown lip liner) and dot your face. Do your best to add variety to the size of freckles to make them look more realistic. Go over your freckles with a damp beauty sponge to soften it up.
3.) Eyeshadow time! Add shade Parasol (a pastel green) from the Impressionism Palette to your cupid’s bow above your lips and the tip of your nose. For your eyes, blend Parasol into your crease and bring it all the way from the outside corner of your eye to your nose bridge. At your nose bridge, blend it towards your eye. This area should be completely green. At the outside of your eye, blend it upwards to create an upturned and mischievous effect.
4.) Take shade Undergrowth (or a deep forest green) and apply it to your under-eye from the inner corner to your outer corner, joining it to the shape you created with shade Parasol. Be sure to blend it out!
5.) Apply shade Verdant (green shimmer) to the inner half of your lid, and apply shade Arles (copper shimmer) to the outer half of your lid. Blend the shades together so that they have a smooth transition. Add Arles to the middle of your under-eye and blend it downwards. Apply mascara. Cut a pair of fake eyelashes into thirds and apply one piece to the outer corner of your under-eye on both sides. If the thirds are different lengths, trim the eyelashes so they’re even lengths.
7.) You’re almost done! Apply Undergrowth (deep forest green) to the underside of your nose. Grab some leaves from outside and bobby pin it to your hair on both sides.
And just like that, you’re finished! Throw on a pair of wings to finish accessorizing. Wear your most whimsical green outfit to complete the look. If you decide to recreate this look, we would love to see it! Tag us with #museebeautyhalloween on Instagram so we can see your creativity.
