How To: Gemstone Halloween Makeup

There’s no such thing as too much bling. If you’ve got the patience and rhinestones (all anyone ever needs), this Gemstone Halloween costume is the right choice for you. 

Gemstone makeup

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!

Step 1. Base makeup

2.) Use shade Amaranthine (magenta) from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette and apply it to your eyelid crease. Blend it upwards and outwards towards your cheekbone. Add more Amaranthine with a fluffy brush from your cheekbones to the apples of your cheeks. The finished effect should be a seamless transition from your eyeshadow to your blush. Add shade Wisp (champagne highlighter) to your cheekbones, tip of your nose, nose bridge, and cupid’s bow. 

Step 2. Begin adding color to your face

3.) Add shade Starry (shimmery blue) to the inner half of your eyelid and the outer corner of your under-eye. Extend the top part of Starry on your eyelid in a line towards the end of your eye, flaring upwards.

Step 3. Add blue eyeshadow to the look

4.) Apply mascara and false lashes. For downturned eyes, cut your eyelashes in half and only apply them to the outer half of your eye. Get a snack ready because this is going to take a while– start applying rhinestones to your face with eyelash glue. Create clusters of gems across your entire face (Tara only did the upper half of her face because she has an accessory to cover the bottom half). A good strategy is to take a bobby pin and apply glue to one end so it becomes tacky. Then use the bobby pin to pick up rhinestones and apply it to a dot of glue on your face. 

Step 4. Lashes, mascara, and rhinestones

5.) Add a red lip to make the look pop!

The finished look!

Nice work! To complete this look, Tara sewed rhinestones to a tulle mask (not to be worn as an actual mask!). Add a pair of ornate gem earrings and a blingy outfit to be the most eye-catching person on the Zoom call. If you decide to recreate this look, we’d love to see it!
