Fairy FOTD



I’m not normally the sort to get that excited about Halloween, don’t get me wrong I’ve always liked it but never been that into it. This year though I’m really in the mood to do some fun Halloween looks and this is the first of them!

I suppose this could be lots of different things, I had a fairy in mind when I did it but a nymph or an elf or some other mythical creature would probably work just as well :)  it took a little longer than I originally expected as I had to go over the lines of the ‘mask’ more than once but it wasn’t difficult (if you’re going to do something similar I’d definitely sketching out a plan before hand!)

I used three eyeshadows, a bright green, a deeper forest green and then a bright baby pink for the cheeks as I didn’t have a blush bright enough. A gel eyeliner and lots of mascara – it’s definitely something you can do on a budget without having to buy lots of colours you’ll never use again.
I also tried pairing this with a nude lip and although I think it’s really pretty, I just can’t pull off nude lips so I’d stick with some sort of definition :)

I’ve already done two other Halloween looks which I’ll post in the next few days as we get closer to Halloween but so far this looks like the favourite for what I’ll actually be doing on Halloween as I seriously love how all the green shadow makes my eyes stand out!

Hope you’ve enjoyed!! x
