How to: my Bambi make-up in 4 simple steps
My sweeties, tomorrow, it’s that night again: Halloween! Booohooo, are you scared already?! It might be a tradition that not everyone welcomes around here, but I truly enjoy all the scariness of this one night, the 31st of October.
And I, like all make-up fanatics out there would probably agree, simply loove to think up a special Halloween make-up look every year. So this year, I wanted to be Bambi and thus, tried out the make-up look beforehand and also photographed it in a tutorial kind of way, so that all of you who don’t already know who or what they wanna be during tomorrow night’s Halloween parties, can easily try it out on themselves.
I hope you enjoy this special make-up look and perhaps, you’ll tell me what your make-up and costume for Halloween will be? And now, let’s become Bambi in 4 (or 5) simple steps:
Firstly, it is important to apply a good, bright foundation to give yourself almost photoshop perfect skin as a canvas to paint your cute little deer upon. I used True Match foundation by L’Oréal Paris, simply because I had a couple of testers at home in different shades of nude, so I could use the darker tones for my contouring in Step 2.
Isn’t it amazing how different you can make yourself look?! So in the second step, I used the darker tones of the foundation testers and finally, a brown theatre make-up on water basis to contour my cheeks, my forehead, the sides of my nose and my chin and jaw. Afterwards, I blurred everything up and out with a smooth make-up brush.
In the third step, I used white water-based theatre make-up to paint my eyes white and give myself the typial deer spots – some smaller, some larger. This really makes the look, so don’t forget to buy yourself a good white. By the way, I bought my theatre make-up at a local drugstore. It was cheap and really easy to apply.
Finally, I drew a couple of black lines around the white of the eyes, painted myself a black deer nose with black water-based make-up and added black mascara on my eye lashes. For the perfect deer look, I fixed some twigs on the back of my head and added a bit of golden glitter eye shadow on my cheeks, nose and forehead. That was quite easy, wasn’t it? Your deer is finished. You can simply wear a brown pullover, a dress or poncho with this look and you’re ready for your Halloween-party!
BUT if you prefer something scary for your Halloween party costume, I have this alternative for you: the slaughtered deer, hehe. I used red and black water-based make-up to paint my eyes red, add some “blood” to my lips and neck. This is not nearly as cute, but definitely scary. Which deer do you prefer??
