Fairy Makeup Ideas: Get the Basics Right

Before you start with your fairy makeup, there are a few essential steps you need to follow:

  • Prepare your skin for makeup with a make-up base and primer to cover the unevenness and give a matte effect to your skin and make your make-up more durable.
  • Next is contouring your face. This is how you will enhance and even slim down your face shape. You will be able to cover dark circles under your eyes and give a glamorous look to your face.
  • Once you follow the above steps you will get your perfect canvas and you can apply your fairy makeup.
  • One of the most dramatic ways you can transform your face is by adding some false eyelashes, with some dramatic eye makeup. The eyes are normally the focus of this type of makeup, so spend time on getting them just perfect and making them pop! Highlight the lashes with eyeliner (steady hand required!).
  • A bit of magic fairy dust goes a long way – be generous with shimmer and glitter especially around your cheekbones and as your eye shadow. It transforms the whole look of a flat looking makeup to a work of art
  • Don’t forget to blend your makeup correctly – it should appear seamless and magical. Smooth out any imperfections, brush up your brows and dust off any makeup residue from your face
  • To complete the look, only your imagination is the limit – you can add wings as part of your fairy costume, flowers in your hair, rhinestones not just on your face but also in your body & hair, and much more.
