Dreamcatcher Makeup Tutorial

When I have the time I love being creative with my makeup using my face as a canvas and makeup as my paints and I was inspired by my dreamcatcher to create a soft yet creative makeup look. I don’t think that this look is very wearable (unless you get rid of the feathers) but I hope that you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed creating this look.
Eye Makeup:
I always start with my eye makeup before anything else because otherwise I find that any fallout or smudges can then ruin your face makeup. Before applying any eye makeup I applied my MUA Pro Base Eyeshadow Primer to make sure that my makeup would stay in place. I then took a pale pink satin eyeshadow from my BH Cosmetics 88 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and applied that across the lid – I will warn you I used a LOT of eyeshadows in this look. Next I took my Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Palette and I applied the bright pink shade Cake to my outer corners before also running that through my crease. I then took the blue shade Metamorphosis and ran that along my waterline before applying a small amount of Royal Flush to the inner corners of my eyes. Finally I took a lilac eyeshadow and ran this up to my brow bone I used the paler shade from my Essence 3D Eyeshadow in Irresistible Purple it’s a silvery lilac that works really well for this look. Once my eyeshadow was complete I then went onto liner, I lined my tightline with my Estee Lauder Pure Color Kajal Liner in Black to help to define my eyes and then I took my ELF Waterproof Felt Tip Liner in Teal to draw the feathers coming out of the outer corners of my eye. For the black dots I used the Seventeen High Drama Liquid Liner in Black to represent the beads. I wanted my lashes to look long and fluttery so I used my Oriflame The One Wonder Lash Mascara. I always fill in my brows last of all but just so I can keep my eye makeup together I filled in my brows with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brunette.

Face Makeup:
Onto face makeup now and I really wanted to create dewy skin for a dreamy effect paired with soft pinks and earthy tones to create a soft but delicate looking skin. Dreamcatchers often have wood and leather in them as well as beads and feathers so I wanted to play with textures to really create this look. I started by priming my face with my Clinique Pore Refining Solutions which creates ablurring effect. I started by applying this to the middle of my face and spread it outwards concentrating on any problem areas. I knew that I was going to be using a light base so I then went in with concealer and I used two. I used my Maybelline Instant Eye Eraser Concealer under my eyes to concealer my dark circles, before using my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on any red areas and blemishes. I then applied my Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation using a damp sponge to get a beautiful airbrushed and dewy effect. Usually I would have added highlighter but my skin was looking quite glowy anyway so I then went into blush and bronzer. For bronzer I opted to apply my Astor Deluxe Bronzer in 002 Safari Fever just on the hollows of my cheeks to create a little more shape to my face. On my cheeks I wanted a natural pink flush so I used my Rimmel London Lasting Finish Mono Blush in Santa Rose which I’ve been really enjoying lately. My skin has been quite dry lately so I decided to skip powder and setting spray as I didn’t feel that I really needed it.

Lip Makeup:
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Lacquer in Charm Offensive:
I was torn on what lipstick to use as I was originally going to go for a tint but then I decided to go for a neutral yet glossy lip so I settled on this product. It is essentially a liquid lipstick with this gorgeous muted pink shade that I find really flattering.
