Creating Fairy Faces
Before you begin, make sure to apply a makeup primer first. It will help the colors glide on smoothly and adhere longer.
Then grab your colorful eyeliner pencils and high pigment eyeshadows and get ready to enjoy designing your forest creature.
Enchanted Green Fairy
The easiest way to go about creating an enchanted face design is to start with a green color range. Using green colors of eyeliner:
- Draw curves of flower vines along your face and neck.
- Be creative and do free form designs.
- Make simple flower shapes with a either a lip liner pencil or bright pink lipstick.
- Outline the petals with purple eyeliner.
While it might be hard to picture this look on it’s own, once you add on a pair of wings it will look as though you’ve danced in a forest meadow.
Butterfly Fairy Makeup
If you’ve ever tried your hand at face painting then you know how much fun butterfly makeup looks can be. For fairy looks you really are just borrowing butterfly wings. The wings can be drawn on either side of the eyes. A popular look is drawing wing outlines on just one eye.
Dark Fairy Makeup
Darker fairy looks can be created the same way. The difference is in the colors you use. Substitute blacks and deep purple colors. Then to really make the look pop apply glitter or crystal tattoos.
You can use temporary butterfly tattoos for this look. Just clip the butterfly wings in half and apply to the the top above your eyebrow and the bottom on your cheeks.
Finish the look by lining your eyes with a thick black line. You can also do a smokey eye look and then apply the temporary tattoos.
Colored Contact Lenses
Keep in mind when you are choosing your makeup look that something as simple as one pair of colored contact lenses can alter your entire look and take it into an extreme fantasy makeup look. If you love going to fairie festivals then this is a great option to consider.
It works for enchanted looks and gives new life to dark fairy makeup looks. You can even use a pair ofcrazy colored contact lenses to create a unique and alluring style!
Artistic makeup styles might appear complicated, but they aren’t. The best part is that these are looks that are meant to be individual looks. Enjoy the process!
