Today’s tutorial takes on a classic look with a brand new mystical twist- Meet Hester the gypsy Queen! This wee blog post is going to show you an easy way to get her look:
Anyone else make up a little back story to a look they’ve created? No, just me then… hehe! I see a lot of my Halloween beauty looks as characters and Hester is no different. She’s an all-seeing, all-knowing gypsy whose a force to be reckoned with, obvs. This one is super simple and doesn’t require too much effort, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for something last minute.
GET THE GYPSY LOOK
- First things first, make sure that face is nice and bare!
2. Now you’re going to need to prime, so that look stays on allllll night long. I use Elf’s primer mist before and after my look.
3. Brows come next, your normal routine will do the trick! This gypsy look is all about maximalist eyes and lips.
4. *sings* FOUNDATION TIMEEEE! I’m mad about 3ina’s 3-in-1 foundation it’s super moisturising and hydrating.
5. Next up, it’s time to contour! I’ll forever rave about Primark beauty, honestly. It’s super cheap, cruelty free and the BEST quality. I apply over my cheekbones and a little on my nose.
6. I then add The Body Shop’s lightening drops under my eyes and beneath the cheekbones to add a white contrast. Your mug should be looking a little like this now!
7. Now for the eyes! Primark’s Eye Candy palette is a veritable colour feast, and their purples are perfect for this look. I applied their lilac shade first.
8. Next up, a metallic deep purple. This shade is pretttttty dark, so ensure you leave some of your eyelid bare to fill in with a metallic blue later on.
9. Look at da mess on that palette! my MUA silent disco eyeshadow palette has been used to death of late, and this dark blue makes for the ideal partner to that mulberry shade currently on my lids.
10. My top tip for making sure a look doesn’t seem patchy- blend! I use a flat, wide brush and it’s amazing for merging those colours. Underneath my eyes, I also dragged the brush vertically down to create a bleeding effect.
11. Want to make the eyes REALLY pop? Add elements of gold! I employed my trusty liquid lipstick by Lime Crime in Xenon to create highlights and break up those dark colours.
12. Lashes are up next, and I haven’t been able to live without these Midnight lashes by Kiss.
13. LIPSTICK TIME! I wanted the lipstick to be far from precise to match the eyes, so I blended Lime Crime’s perlees in Charmed with Xenon to get a bleeding lip effect.
14. And there we have it, Hester the gypsy Queen. Bow down witches!
