Bloodmoon Witch look
Its officially the season of the witch and we just had to get into the spirit with this gorgeous look, you can wear this to all of your seasonal celebrations and be the talk of the night.
Although this is a Halloween look, we want it to be drop dead gorgeous so we are going to keep the skin smooth and flawless. We started by applying a primer (we love Benefit Porefessional) and we worked it over the face with our hands.
We then took a full coverage concealer and our famous Bella&Bear Jaguar Angled Kabuki and we buffed and blended it over the face and neck in outward motions for a streak free finish. We love the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation for this.
We want to get that defined, structured face for this look, so lets go in with some contour and highlight cream! We took the City colour cream contour palette and using our Bella&Bear Margay Cat brush we worked the contour shade into the hollows of the cheeks, around the temples, the jawline and down the sides of the nose. We then used our Bella&Bear Ocelot Concealer brush to apply the highlight shade to the cheekbones, the area below the eyes, the forehead, down the centre of the nose and the chin.
Next, taking our Bella&Bear Jaguar Angled blush brush we blended it all together, until seamless and smooth.
To set that all in place we then used our Bella&Bear Tiger brush to lightly dust the face with a translucent powder - our fave is the ELF Studio HD Powder -, and we finished our base off with a spritz of setting spray to lock it all in place, we used the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
Now lets work on the eyes. We want this to be a clean, flawless look so the eye makeup is going to be strong, but minimal. we're starting with a primer to keep our eye makeup in place, we're using the Benefit Stay don't stray for this and working it onto the lid and up to the brow bone with our ring finger.
We then took a matte ivory shadow and our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush and we worked it all over the lid and, again, up to the brow bone. This will work as our base shadow and give us an even base for our eye makeup.
Now we want to create a neutral cut crease look so we are taking our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay Cat brush to apply a matte taupe shadow to the area just above the crease of the lid - making sure to only smudge it it upward so that we keep that cut crease look.
Netx, we are going to put some Essence Camouflage concealer onto our Bella&Bear Golden Cat Concealer brush and we are working it onto the eyelid and up to that crease line, being sure to keep everything clean and neat.
Once that has set we can then take out Bella&Bear Iromote Brush and a matte white shadow and simply press it on top, being sure to pack it on. We used the Zoeva Naturally Yours palette for our shadows in this look.
Great! Now lets add some eyeliner for a dramatic sweep. Taking our Bella&Bear Serval Liner brush and some black liner (we are using Essences Cushion liner) we are going to create a long, extended wing along the upper lash line.
Next, we are using our Bella&Bear Eye&Mighty Lash Curler we are going to curl our lashes for some lift. Once we have done this we applied a coat of our fave mascara - Benefit They're Real. You can keep building this up until your happy or you can do as we did and add some falsies. We used our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to apply a set of Eylure Exaggerate 141 lashes as close to the natural lash line as possible, allowing them time to set.
Now lets frame the eyes by filling in the brows. We are using the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx Brow brush to groom the brows and brush them into the desired shape. We are then using the brush end to work some Freedom makeup pomade through the brows, defining them, creating a sold shape and filling in any sparse areas.
Now lets add a little bronzer to the give the skin a healthy glow. We are taking our Bella&Bear Bobcat brush and we are using it to dust the cheeks and the temples with a matte bronzer like the one in the ELF studio bronzer quad.
We'll also add a glow to the face with a little highlight. Taking our Bella&Bear Cheetah Duo Fiber Powder brush we applied some IHeartMakeup Blushing Hearts highlight in 'Iced Hearts' highlight to the cheekbones the tip of the nose, the cupids bow and the brow bones.
For the lips we are going to use Limecrime Velvetine in - you guessed it - 'Bloodmoon'. We're applying it to the lips with our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip brush for a precise, clean finish.
Now, lets take things up a notch. To really add to that Witchy vibe we are going to add some glitter to the eyes - be sure to use safe body glitter rather than craft glitter which could cut the skin or cause infections. We applied a little glitter fix (or lash glue) just around the inner corner of the eye - avoiding the ducts - and in a drip like pattern with our Bella&Bear Fishing Cat brush, we then used our Bella&Bear Iromote brush to press some silver glitter over the top of that glue.
Next, we took a moon shaped metallic tattoo and applied it to the centre of the forehead.
We used our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to remove the backing of the metallic tattoo to ensure it stayed safely on the skin!
Next, we put some white mesh contact lenses in - this is not crucial of course, the look will still be fabulous without contacts but if you are confident enough then go ahead and apply them now.
Gorgeous!! Finish the look with another spritz of setting spray to really lock everything into place, and you're done.
We also wanted to add a silver wig to really pull on the look of the silver glitter and white eyes, but we first have to prepare our natural hair for a wig.
We started by dividing our hair into 2 sections and brushing through them with our Bella&Bear the Bear paddle brush to make sure they are tangle free. We then did a simple braid in each of these sections.
Next we pulled the braids to the back of the head and used bobbypins to secure them in place, making sure they are as flat as possible. To follow we put on our wig cap.
Then you can go ahead and pop your wig on! Be sure to place it on the front of the head, pulling it to the back. Adjust your wig and brush through, and finish with a killer crown!
