Water elemental makeup tutorial

Before I start this post I will warn you that this will be a long post with a lot of pictures, so if that’s not your thing you probably won’t like this. If you do like longer posts stick around for a tutorial on the look that I created after being inspired by the water element.
(Don’t ask me why I look sulky, I have no idea!)

Starting with eyes and I’m going to create a step by step guide here. Before I started using eyeshadow I applied my MUA Pro Base Eye Primer across my lid and up to the brow bone. I then started this look by taking an aqua eyeshadow and applying that across my lid, the shadow I used for this was the Essence 3D Eyeshadow in Irresistable Summer Sea, and I used the lighter, flat shadow. I then took a darker blue shade from my BH Cosmetics 88 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and I applied that to my outer corner and crease, I did this quite large to create a winged effect.

Next up is the blending, for this I used a fluffy brush and just blended the two colours together, this looks much prettier.

I then took a mint coloured eyeshadow from my BH Cosmetics 88 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and I applied this to the centre of the lid and to the inner corners, using a light colour such as this adds more depth to the look and opens up the eyes. I also added a blue kohl liner to my waterline and I used the GOSH Velvet Touch Kohl in Sky High.

To really emphasises the eyes and to add more definition I applied the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black to my upper lash line, and then I took the lightest mint shadow in the BH Cosmetics 88 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and applied this from the top of my crease right up to the brow bone, finally I added my Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara in Waterproof to my lashes.

(Face makeup used)
For my face I wanted to create a pale look with an icy hue to it. I started my adding a primer and I used the No7 Instant Illusions Primer to get an even texture to my skin. I then used my Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation in Light Porcelain to my skin and patted it in with my fingertips. I then applied my Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent to mattify my skin and prevent any shine. I didn’t bother with a contour or blush as I wanted this to look quite ghostly and dramatic but I did apply my Etude House My Wish Cheek in Gorgeous Snow to add a silvery glow.

Once my face makeup was complete I filled in my brows with the Seventeen Brows That Brow Kit before moving onto the lips.
lipstick used
On the lips I wanted to use a bold blue colour which would really add drama to this look. I used my Illamasqua Lipstick in Vendetta to create electric blue lips.
I did french plait my hair beforehand as I wanted loose curls for this look, so once my makeup was complete I undid the plait and finger combed my hair to complete the finished look. Here is the finished look.

I love this look, it’s not something I would wear daily but it’s great for fancy dress, if you did want to mke this more wearable you could add a pink lipstick to the lips, replace the blue liner with black and replace the highlighter with a contour and blush. I think this would make a great look for Halloween or a Fancy Dress Party.
finished look
