Butterfly Fairy Halloween Makeup Tutorial

I got to do a shoot for AC Lens (which is an awesome online store that has glasses/sunnies/colored contacts) for Halloween looks that are do-able - some are easier than others but there will be one in the mix of five that I'm going to share over the course of this week that you will feel totally equipped implementing.

I'm starting with a super fun one which is my Butterfly Fairy - isn't she so pretty?!!  I'm obsessed.

Here's how I did it -
Pop in Zombie Blue contact lenses from AC Lens - I rec doing this first so that you're not messing up your amazing makeup job later by putting them in once you're finished (we didn't do that so I'm saving you some heartache here)

Apply white cream makeup to the entire eye area Рlash line to brow (Cr̬me Foundation in White РBen Nye) - doing this, even on fair skin, allows the bright colors to read as vibrantly as possible
Apply yellow shadow to inner corner of eye (Lemon Pressed Eye Shadow – Ben Nye)
Apply orange shadow in outer corner of eye and up into entire area under brow as well as under the eye as a liner (Clay Eye Shadow Compact Matt – Kryolan)
Fill in the middle section of lid with mustardy/orange shade (Banana Eye Shadow Compact Matt – Kryolan)
Apply shimmering orange loose shadow over outer corner and under eye (Tangerine Lumiere Luxe Powder – Ben Nye)
Apply a loose soft gold shimmer to inner corner of eye (Magic Dust – Erin’s Faces)
Fill in brows so they are defined (Espresso Mineral Eyeshadow – Erin’s Faces)
Black mascara top and bottom (Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara)
Apply false lashes of choice (Alcone Lashes #314)

We did a test shot before we put the lenses in and it was too pretty not to share!

Use the shimmering orange loose powder as your contour on cheek and blend (Tangerine)
Apply the loose soft gold as highlight on cheek and pull in to the apples – use a lot (Magic Dust)
Apply a bright deep pink shade to apples of cheeks (Tulip Mineral Blush – Erin’s Faces)

Cut wings off of your butterfly (we used Ashland Nature Center Butterflies from Michael's)
Cut a small triangle out of the center of the wings which is where the corner of your eye will go
Use lash glue to affix the wings – just near the triangle you cut out as that’s the part that will be touching your skin (Duo Lash Glue)

Use a matte white pencil and a black pencil to draw dots along the cheek, under and over the brow in a pattern you like (You’re Always White & Baby’s Got Black Kohl Crayons for Eyes – Wet N’ Wild)

Jenny with and without the lenses on (Ice Walker - different from the ones we used at the shoot) with no other makeup on and no retouching and then me after we did the demo for press looking slightly alarmed as Jenny looked really pretty and really creepy all at once
Use a bright coral gloss on lips (Coral Crush Mineral Lipgloss – Erins Faces) and press in a little of the orange or yellow shadow into the center of the lip
