Forest Fairy Makeup

 “Once upon a time in the enchanted forest lived an enchanted Forest Fairy…” so begins this whimsical makeup tutorial by Bebexo on creating this sweet green fairy look.

What stands out: We very much appreciate Bebeko’s easy to follow step-by-step instructions that even beginners can grasp for this subtle but gorgeous look. We love the effect of the glue-on rhinestones around the eyes, which are optional, but give that extra pixie panache!

A couple of fantastic products used: Bebeko gives us a complete list of products used for this look right on the page for a handy quick reference. Even though she features every artist’s dream palette, 120 Eyeshadow Palette from Bhcosmetics, you could achieve the Forest Fairy face with just a couple of shades. But you’ll want to check this product out if you’re planning on having lots of color options for all your future forays into fairy festival-landia! 

Pair it with: We found three great options, depending on the look you’re aiming for. Bebeko shows off her green fairy with a winged costume, but we suggest any of these accessories for your own unique style.

For a sweet and subtle accessory, we like this Green Fairy Charm Necklace (at right, upper) by Tzaddishop.

How about this traditional crown to complement your makeup (at right, lower)? It’s featured on

Or if you’re a hip, modern fairy, climb into the MidSummer Green Fairy Hooded Tunic in Absinthe/Green Sparkle (below) by Opal Moon Designs.

We’d love to see your version of forest fairy. Share with us! Submit to our Tumblr, @tweetfairies on Twitter, or write on our Facebook timeline.


The Spiderwick Chronicles

The Spiderwick Chronicles (Nickelodeon Movies/Paramount Pictures 2008) tells the story of Jared, Simon, and Mallory after Jared finds his great-great-uncle’s journal, which details the hidden world of the Fantastic.

The Spiderwick Chronicles is full of colorful faeries, goblins, ogres, trolls, pixies, elves, and nixies – some good, some evil.
