I recently visited the new world of Pandora over at Disney's Animal Kingdom and it totally wowed me. I found new inspiration for an old look. I think you'll find this look will be easy for you to create this Halloween. Or if you are like me, just an ever day look, lol. Just ask my husband who comes home to find an Avatar cooking dinner! Now, let's jump right in to this tutorial.
Here's what you'll need:
- Mehron Light Blue Paradise Face
- FAB Brilliant Blue
- MiKim FX AQ Matte White
- Mehron Blue StarBlend
- Kryolan Purple Glamour Sparks
- Kryolan 8 Color Cool Viva Pro Pressed Powder Palette
- Cameleon Kabuki
- Ruby Red Professional Makeup Applicator
- Graftobian Filbert #10 Brush
- Mehron Mark Reid Signature Round Brush #4
- Ben Nye Fine Detail Tapered Point Brush
- Amerikan Body Art Abracadabra Pixie Paint Glitter Gel (Optional)
Here's how to apply:
Load your Kabuki brush with Paradise Light Blue and cover the face, neck and shoulder area using a circular motion.
Load your Ruby Red Makeup Applicator with White from you Kryolan Pressed Powder Palette and apply to the entire nose and sides of the nose. We want to create the illusion that your nose is wider than what it actually is. Next, Load your Ruby Red Makeup Applicator with Kryolan Purple Glimmer Sparks and apply to add highlights. ie. Forehead, cheekbones, chin, etc...
Next, load your Ruby Red Makeup Applicator with your Blue Starblend and begin contouring the face, neck and shoulders as shown. Then, load your Ben Nye detail brush with black from your Kryolan Press Powder Palette and begin shading the sides of the nose. You will also use this to add eyeliner and darken your eyebrows. Note: be sure to add a double bottom line to the lower lid.
Now it's time to add some Avatar stripes. Begin by loading your Mark Reid #4 Brush with Fab Blue and start your stroke at the top of the forehead with the point ending toward the bridge of the nose. You can do any pattern you would like, so get creative!
Continue adding stripes all the way down to the shoulders. You can switch to your Graftobian Filbert brush when creating the larger stripes.
Load your Mark Reid #4 brush with MiKim White and add highlights to each stripe. Next, add white in between the double eyeliner to help make the eyes appear wider.
Load your Ruby red Makeup Applicator with Pink from you Kryolan Pressed Powder Palette and apply to the nose and lips.
Now you will want to take your Ben Nye detail brush and blend the nose, eyes, eyebrows and mouth out. Basically any place on the design that isn't smoothed out, you will want to blend into the design. Add some additional shading to the nose as well.
Next, load your Mark Reid #4 brush with MiKim White and add dots to the design. Here's another chance to show your creative side! You can keep it simple or even make designs out of the dots. It's up to you.
Finally, You will add some glitter. This part is optional and take some extra time and care to apply. You will take your Pixie Paint Glitter and your #4 brush and take out a couple of chunks at a time. Gently tap the glitter onto the design, making sure to only tap, not paint. Otherwise, all of your hard work will smear. In a time crunch, you can always just poof some glitter onto the design.
I also added some pointed ears and a wig, because I just love wigs! If you decide to go all out and add ears, here's the pair I chose Woochie Large Space Ear Tips.
I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and have fun creating your own.
Be sure to let us know what you would like to see in future blogs.
Until next time… Live, Love, Paint.
