Deer/Bambi Halloween Makeup
Happy Monday, friends! Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I would share another makeup look that would be pretty simple to do. For this deer look, I added a lot of detail around the eyes, which you don’t have to do, and it would make the look much easier to achieve. Check out my steps below!
STEP 1: Apply foundation and concealer and set as you normally would. I would recommend using a lighter concealer and adding it not only underneath your eyes, but also on your forehead and chin to make those areas pop.
STEP 2: Begin detailing the eyes.
- Apply a matte brown shadow or a powder contour shade to the crease of your eyes and messily blend all over, blending into the hollows of your eyes and down the sides of your nose (to create the nose contour). Don’t be afraid to blend up into your brow bone and eyebrows. Blend this same color underneath your eyes.
- Apply a bone colored shadow to your eye lid and into the tear ducts of your eyes and slightly underneath to brighten.
- Apply black eyeliner (either gel or liquid) to the top and bottom of your lash line. Bring the liner into your tear duct, towards your nose to create a more “cat eye” effect.
STEP 3: Contour your face by applying a matte bronzer or powder contour shade to the hollows of your cheeks, around your hairline, on your jawline, around your nose, and the hollow area above your lip, right underneath your nose. Don’t be afraid to go heavy on the contour.
STEP 4: Finish off the nose.
- With a smaller blending brush, apply more contour to the sides of your nose to really deepen up the brown. Blend all the way up the sides of your nose, connecting to your brows.
- With a small, flat detail brush (I used the MAC 242), apply concealer in a straight line down the center of your nose. Start at the top of your nose, close to your eyebrows, and run the brush straight down until you get to the tip of your nose. This will create that sharp look on the nose. Set that with powder.
- Color in the bottom of your nose (in sort of a V shape) with black gel eyeliner.
STEP 5: Begin detailing the mouth.
- Using that same gel eyeliner, color in your whole top lip.
- Add concealer to your bottom lip, blend in, and set.
- Add tiny curls on the side of your mouth using gel eyeliner and a small detail brush.
STEP 6: With a small brush, draw white spots on the sides of your face and forehead. I used a white foundation, but you can use white face paint or white concealer. A white eyeliner pencil might even work.
And you’re done! Like I said, you don’t have to draw in the extra lines around the eyes if you don’t want to, I just thought it added a little more fun to the look.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you in my next one!
