Tutorial: Halloween Make Up - Alien Princess

I love Halloweeeeeeeeeeen! It's one of my favourite times of the year and I'm always one of those people who gets a bitttttt too 'into it'. This year I've decided to go as an Alien Princess - I think it's just an excuse to wear a crown and a lot of glitter.



I decided to do a quick step by step tutorial of this look as it's super easy and it's all using eyeshadows and make up you can find easily. Prepare yourself for a lot of scrolling as I somehow took a million photos. All products I used will be pictured at the bottom of this post.


I started off with your average base of foundation and concealer. 


I then used the NYX Jumbo Eyshadow Pencil in Cottage Cheese all over my lid. It's a really nice creamy reflective silver toned white. I wanted a nice shimmery base that would really emphasise the coloured shadows I was planning on using.


Next, I used a matte hot pink eyeshadow just on the lid - I started about halfway across my eyelid as I wanted the silvery base I had added to still be visible. I used one from Collection's Colour Pop Eyeshadow palette, and topped it off with a shimmery bright pink from the Illamasqua Paranormal palette.



I intensified the colour by adding a slightly darker pink to the outer V and blending together. I decided to use a shimmery dark pink from Sleek's Vintage Romance eyeshadow palette.



I repeated the same thing but to my lower lash line, the NYX eyeshadow pencil on the inner corner and lined about halfway along my eye - then using the hot pink and darker pink to blend all the way out.


I then used a bright blue eyshadow as my contour - I lined the top of my forehead, cheekbones, nose and jawline and blended it out - I decided to blend it out pretty far so there was a large amount of colour showing. I used a matte bright blue shade from the same Collection Colour Pop eyeshadow palette.



I repeated the same process with the same hot pink I used on my lid above the contour on my cheeks and blended it together.


I then started mapping out the 'alien shapes' on my face - I decided on a triangle on my forehead, and then a strip down my nose and chin. I used the same hot pink eyeshadow from the Collection palette.


TIME FOR THE GLITTER - I added pink and blue glitter over the large 'alien shapes' I had drew on, and then 2 thick lines coming out of my eyes. I dabbed on some carmex/ vaseline onto the areas I wanted glitter, then using a flat eyeshadow brush, pressed the glitter over it so it stuck. I decided to add some glitter onto my cheek contour too, just to add a little bit more dimension. I got a small glitter stack from Claire's which has 5 super bright colours, so it's perfect for Halloween and fancy dress!


Using white liquid eyeliner I started to draw on some lines and dots. I dotted around the triangle on my forehead - the inner corners of my eyes, my outer eyes, and then lined the strip on my chin. The white liner I used is Scribe by Illamasqua.



I didn't really know what lip colour to go for, I was initially going to use silver eyeshadow, but it just didn't look right. I opted for a dark metallic blue - I used an ELF jumbo eyeshadow stick in D33 and topped it with Limecrime's carrousel gloss in Loop- De- Loop.



These lashes were so hard to apply! (they're from poundland, so I wasn't expecting the best quality) They're super thick and had a really thick, stiff band (apologies for the poor application) but I think they really completed the look. I also finished off my lower lashes by using the white liquid liner to coat them.



And that's it! - Now what is an alien princess without her crown! I got my crown from Claire's - pretty sure it's meant to be for children, but hey adults can be princesses too!



I couldn't decide if I preferred this look with my hair up or down - I think if I was to wear my hair down I'd probably have it straight - I just don't think it looks right with curl hair!




This was suuuuuuch a fun look to do! I'm super excited to recreate this for Halloween night.
