All good aunties dress up with their niece/nephew and this year I will be a Little Charmer with my niece AKA a fairy. From cartoons and movies, I know that fairies have pretty, light and glowing makeup; They look magical and innocent.
I wanted my fairy makeup look to have this list of qualities:
-strong contour and highlight (center of the face)
-light and shimmery eyes
-the colors white, blue and purple
I primed the eyes with both an eye primer and a white base and topped it off with a white powder eyeshadow. I dusted a shimmer wash eye shadow onto the lids, and for the outer third, I applied a shimmery blue eye shadow. I lined my eyes with a dark brown liquid eye liner and set it with a dark blue-gray shadow. Using a cool purple, I smoked out my bottom lash line. This purple also matches my wings! I also added sparkle eye shadow to the inner and outer parts of the eye while also putting a gold glitter on top.

The tinted moisturizer evened out my skin tone. With a liquid highlighter, I made sure to highlight in the shape of a heart in the center of the face including the forehead, nose, cupid’s bow, chin and cheek bones. Starting off with a regular contour, I built upon it to darken it up and followed up with a bronzer to bring life back to my skin.
