Floral Fairy Makeup Tutorial

If you’re ready to find your true colors, Julie from MissChievous.com presents this tutorial to create a floral fairy in vibrant, primary colors. With or without accessories, you’ll stand out in the crowd!

What stands out: Such fabulous color and texture in this Floral Fairy motif makes this complex design worth the time and effort. Julie gives great step-by-step instructions. Her technique of exposing the brush strokes paired with blending for a soft but 3-dimensional quality is inspired by Impressionist painting.

A couple of fantastic products used:  Mehron Paradise Palettes in Pastel and Tropical are water-activated face paints which make for a very workable and smooth medium and a bright and lively color effect. She combines this with Ben Nye Grande Lumier Palette to create the density of color for the flowers. Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Absorb balances out the intense color with a glossy, nude lip.

Pair it with:  You might like one more splash of color with these aqua floral drop earrings (at right) by September Willow to finish your look. Beautiful!


Fanciful, Fairylike Bodices

Attach a stunning bodice with halter tie, combine a harmonious combination of silk, organza, chiffon and lace to make up the skirt, and the result is the Pixie Dress (pictured below) by Belinda of Romantic Threads — spellbinding and devastatingly pretty!

Romantic Threads adorns the shoulders with flowers, folded fabric, and ribbon. This exquisite piece can be custom made to your desired color and size. Charmingly, a matching children’s dress is also available.

Shift the enchantment from blushing pastel to vibrant green. You will literally shine in Woodland Meadow Faerie Costume (pictured at right) by Eve Reddin of FairyNanaLand. Made of satin, layered organza, silk flowers, velvet leaves, and ribbon, and of course sporting wings, Eve promises that this piece will “envelop you in the aura of an enchanted meadow.”

The enchantment turns again, this time to ethereal. The costume starts with a fully-lined reversible corset (with stretch material in the back). The bodice is completely covered in roses… Comely gold, rose and pink tulle attaches to an elastic waist. The Enchanted Fairy Ware costume (at left) by Enchanted Fairy Co is complete with sparkly silken halo, wand and golden wings. With or without accessories, a playful choice for fairylike fanciful diversions!
