Halloween is creeping up on us and we've got another look for you to try! This one is for those who love something elegant, beautiful and magical. We're channelling our inner woodland creature with this flawless forest fawn look; its cute and fun!
Lets start by smoothing out that skin and making a clean, even base. Taking some Benefit Porefessional primer we worked it over the face with our fingers. Then for a subtle shimmer we took our Bella&Bear Lynx kabuki and some Gerard Cosmetics BB+ Illumination Creme and we blended it over the face .
We want a flawless skin for this look so we took a full coverage foundation and we applied it to the face with our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki, working in outward motions. We used the Makeup Forever HD foundation here. Don't forget to also lightly work the foundation down your neck to avoid harsh 'tidelines' around the jaw.
Then, taking our concealer, we worked on disguising problem areas on the face - blemishes and dark circles for example. We used the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and we used our Bella&Bear Ocelot concealer brush to blend it into our foundation seamlessly.
We want a soft, matte finish for this look so the next step was to use our Bella&Bear Tiger powder brush to lightly dust the face with some ELF Stdio HD Powder. If you prefer a dewy look then you can just set the concealed areas on the skin.
Now lets work on those eyes. We want to accentuate the eyes for this look but first we have to prep them, so we are taking an eye shadow primer; our fave is the TooFaced shadow insurance, and we are working it over the lids and up to the brow bones with our ring finger.
Then, taking our Bella&Bear Sand Cat brush and matte ivory shadow we worked it over the lid and again, right up to the brow bone for an even and smooth canvas for our shadows.
Next, using our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay Cat brush we took a matte bronzer and we worked this over the lid of the eye, up to the brow bone eye and into a V shape on the outer corner of the eye. We used the Rimmel Natural Bronzing powder for this.
To really define the eyes we are also going in with some liner. We used our Bella&Bear Serval angled liner and a black liner product (we love the Essence Cushion Liner) and we created a short, thick line - remember, we want this to be thick, so take it almost up to the crease of the eye!
To make those lashes fawn-worthy we are next going in with our Bella&Bear Eye&Mighty lash curler and we are curling the lashes for 20 seconds on each eye, this will give a fanned out and full look.
To follow this we added a coat of our fave mascara - Benefit They're Real - applying it generously and topping up if you prefer a more dramatic look.
If, like us, you wanted to go all out, now is the time to go in with your falsies. Be sure to choose a pair of super long lashes here. We applied some Eylure Exaggerate 141 lashes as close to the natural lash line as possible with our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers.
Now we want to frame those eyes so we are going to fill in and define our brows. Taking our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx Brow Brush and some dark brow powder we are filling in the brows to make them quite thick. Be sure to end the tail of your brow in line with the flick of your liner to create a strong eye shape.
We then used the spoolie end of the brush to brush through the brows and disperse of any excess product for a softer finish.
Let's add some features to the face. Taking that same bronzer (its best to use a matte one), and our Bella&Bear Bobcat blush brush we are working the bronzer generously over the face to mimic deer markings. We applied it to the cheeks and cheekbones, the temples and hairline and around the jawline.
We also used our Bella&Bear Margay Cat brush to work some bronzer right down the sides of the nose, joining it up to the inner corner of the brows.
Be sure to add more bronzer around thew edges of the face to make those areas darker and keep the inner most bronzing the lightest.
We also used our Bella&Bear Bobcat Brush to dust the balls of the shoulders and collarbones with bronzer.
To create a more fawn like nose, we used some black face paint (you could also use eyeliner if you don't have face paint to hand) and our Bella&Bear Caracal liner brush and we painted the tip and underside of the nose, drew a straight line from the centre of the nose to the cupids bow and filled in the top lip only.
We then pressed some of our foundation onto the bottom lip with our ring finger to block it out.
As a final step to create deer like marking on the skin we are taking a white face paint (or again, white eyeliner), and our Bella&Bear caracal Liner brush - be sure to rinse it off first - and we are going to 'dot' the face with it. You can add as many or as little dots at you like but be sure that they are bold and differently sized! We chose to add our dots to our forehead, our cheeks and our shoulders.
We then also put a small amount of the white product onto our finger and worked it down the centre of the nose for a delicate finish.
To lock everything in place we also spritzed the skin with a setting spray. We used the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray here.
As a final, optional step we decided to pop on a wig! We used our Bella&Bear The Bear Paddle brush and we brushed through the hair to make it smooth and tangle free and create a centre part.
We then tightly braided each half of the hair and pinned it to the back of the head to keep it nice and flat to the head.
Then we popped on our wig - we used this lovely Auburn wig one (sourced here) but you could use any colour you prefer to add to the look.
We also added our Fall inspired flower crown (find our tutorial here) for a final touch!
