Fantasy Makeup Look

Fantasy makeup looks might seem daunting –– they require a skill (and a whole lot of makeup products) that comes easily to very few. However, it is a way of bringing makeup out as an experience. The best part is that you can make anything a fantasy makeup look if you add a whole lot of flair to it. Think fairy tales, sci-fi, and all things in between.

This intense look may seem complicated but it is quite simple. A great go-to for Halloween or any sort of themed or fancy dress event, this fantasy makeup look is the perfect place to start.

 

How To Create It

 

Step 1 - Start With The Lines

 

After you apply your base makeup, begin by using a liquid eyeliner to create those swirls. Go with a flowing pattern in white and black –– start from your forehead then lead in with your eyes, follow through with your cheeks, till you reach your lips.

A tapered felt tip eyeliner that allows for fluid and precise application. The formula delivers high pigment wear that lasts for up to 24 hours. It is water-resistant and non-transferable.

Step 2 - Add The Lipstick

 

Take two hues of a liquid red lipstick -– one deeper than the other. Start by applying the deeper lip colour on the outer part of your lips to line them and a lighter colour on the inside. Purse your lips together so that the two hues blend seamlessly. There needs to be a visible gradient of colour.

Where Euphoria meets everyday life, this slightly off-beat ‘out of space’ look is one for the books –– especially when you want to add a whole lot of drama to your day (and evening) eye makeup look.

 

How To Create This Look:

 

Step 1 - Start With The Highlight

 

Once you are done applying a low coverage foundation, add a whole lot of highlighter to the highpoints of your face. This includes your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your brow bones, and your cupid’s bow. Blend away! For this look skip the shimmery highlighter and go for a 3-D multidimensional one that adds a very holographic glow to your look.

A sheer pearlescent highlighter that has special pearls that give your skin a sparkling luminosity. It has a lightweight, fresh feel that hydrates your skin. It is quick drying and comes with an easy to use roll-on applicator.

Step 2 - Add The Shimmer

 

Apply a shimmery eyeshadow powder to your eyelids and blend away! Add a few sticky pearls to your eyelids and under your eyebrows.

A lavender shade of pure shimmer, this loose glitter powder has an impeccable makeup finish that is super sparkly. A small amount is enough to cover your entire eyelid and more!

Step 3 - Go For The Eyes

 

Brush out your eyebrows and feather them out gently. Add a tiny kitten eye flick to your eyelids –– make sure the line is thin and precise. Finish off with some mascara that will define your eyes even more.

A liquid eyeliner plus HD brow powder, this two-in-one product is everything your eye needs. The liquid eyeliner comes with an easy-to-use precision tip that has an excellent colour payoff.

It lasts all day, even in the hottest climates. The HD brow powder is easy to blend and has a smooth finish that lasts up to 8 hours.

Step 4 - Finish Off With Gloss

 

Apply a nude brown lip gloss on your pout. Layer twice for a more intense colour payoff.

Give your rainbow makeup a bit of a makeover with a whole lot of shimmer and shine. Add elements of glitter on your eyes, your forehead, and your decolletage for the full effect. 

 

How To Create It

 

Step 1 - Add The Eyeshadow

 

Apply colours of the rainbow on your eyes –– start with a green hue, go into a blue colour, then a purple shade on your upper eyelid. Smoke out your lower lash line with a pink eyeshadow to finish.

 

Step 2 - Top Off With Glitter


Take some loose glitter powder and dust it on top of your eyeshadow to create that luminous shimmery glow. You can even add a few sticky sparkles if required.

Step 3 - Add A Pink Lipstick
