To first start off this Wonder Women look I used my concealer to highlight the areas of my face that would stand out. I used a cartoon picture I found and used that image to help me decided where to highlight. Then once I placed my concealer in the areas I wished to highlight I blend the product out but I didn't completely blend it into the skin.
Next with a concealer stick that was to dark for my skin tone I contoured my nose and cheeks. I think blend out the contour but not fully blended into the skin. Then I went in with my cream contour palette and I contour my cheek, chin, around the apples of my cheek stopping when I get to my nose. Once again I blended the product out but not fully blended into the skin.
Then with the white colour from the Flash Platte I placed a little more of a highlight in areas that the picture had more light.
Once I was done with my cream highlight and contour I set my work with a translucent powder.
For my brows I lined them with the black shade from the Flash Palette and I then filled them in using a black eye shadow from Tarte.
For my eye makeup I keep it pretty simple I used a nude on my lids and then used browns to deepen my crease.
For my liner I used a black liner and I made sure to sharpen the pencil before I used it to make sure I get more control on how thick or thin the line will be. I lined my top lash line and bottom as well as my waterline and I also tightlined my eyes to make sure that around my eyes are fully black. Then I applied mascara only to the top of my lashes.
Once that was done I did the same contour and highlighting steps to my neck and chest area above making sure to follow where the body was highlighted in the photo I used for help. But I'm guessing that if you do this look for Halloween you have a costume to go with it so I wont example the steps I did on my body for this look. For the picture I googled Wonder Women 2015 to find comic picture that are most recent.
Next for my headband I drew the outline in a sliver shade from the Flash Palette using a small brush then I filled it in using a bigger brush. For the star I went over the sliver with the red from the Flash Palette but to make it easier I should have also mapped out the star and then not have filled that area with the sliver making the red more easy to apply. Once I finish applying the red I set that with red shadow from BH Cosmetics.
Then to make my star appear a bit 3d I outlined it in black from the Flash Palette and I connect all pointed to the center.
Then I went in with a brown from my Morphe Palette and contoured my cheek bone, chin and nose a little more and this also helps set the cream even more.
Then I used a grey shadow to add some shadow to the headband to look similar to the picture I had.
Then I used a red liquid lipstick and applied that to my lips. Once that was dry I moved onto the final step in this look. I used a gel liner from Smashbox and following the picture I drew lines on my face and body in the same areas and way the drawing had.
For my hair I loosely curled it and fluffed it up to add some volume.
What are you going to be for Halloween this year?
