HOW TO DO FESTIVAL FAIRY MAKEUP FOR HALLOWEEN
Fairies are always on trend for Halloween, especially when you add a fun festival twist. Here’s our step-by-step tutorial for creating a festival fairy makeup look, plus two optional steps to customize the look and show off your creative side!
Step #1: Add Some Shimmer
Start by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer to your face. Once your skin is primed and ready for makeup, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Cosmic Pink to add some shimmer. Highlight the apples of your cheeks, working up toward your temples. Then, add some extra glow by applying the highlighter to the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow.
Step #2: Grab Your Eye Shadow
Once your face is radiant and glowing, it’s time to focus on your eye makeup! Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Burst Into Bloom or Glistening Garnet to the creases of your eyelids, blending the color downward. Then, drag the same shadow along your lower lash line and the inner and outer corners of your eyes. Finish up by applying the eye shadow to the tip of your nose and chin to add a pop of whimsical color to your face.
Step #3: Line Your Eyes
To amp up your eye makeup, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Purple to line your waterline and lower lash line. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Black to create a thick wing on your upper lash line.
For a more neutral alternative, swap out your purple eyeliner for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Brown. If liner isn’t really your thing, you can opt to skip it altogether in favor of your eye shadow to highlight your cheekbones with a dash of purple.
Step #4: Coat Your Lashes
No eye makeup look is complete without a few coats of mascara! Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Black to give your lashes voluptuous volume and intense length.
Step #5: Paint Your Lips
To complete this fairy Halloween makeup look, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Plum Bum to your lips for a gorgeous, long-lasting purple pout. For a more neutral alternative, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shake Down.
To take your lips to the next level, line the perimeter with purple eyeliner and top them off by pressing a bit of purple shadow onto your pout. You can also upgrade your look with extra shimmer by applying the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops to the center of your lips.
Editor’s tip: If you want to help your fairy Halloween makeup last all night long, we recommend finishing the look with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray. Spritz this makeup setting spray in an “X” and “T” motion over your face to ensure your festival fairy makeup appears “just applied” all night long.
Bonus Step: Add Details
Want to kick your festival fairy Halloween costume up a notch? You have a few options!
Option 1. Draw it out. Use a white eyeliner pencil to apply dots along the tops of your eyebrows, down the bridge of your nose, and on your waterlines.
Option 2. Bejewel yourself. Place stick-on jewels above your eyebrows for a fun, easy touch.
Option 3. Change your color. Consider transforming your tresses—for just one night. You can use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Hot Pink (we suggest a pink shade) to change your hair’s hue temporarily. This temporary hair color will wash out in just one shampoo, making it the perfect option for completing a pretty Halloween makeup look.
