FOTD #6: Deer Make up

There's really no explanation as to why I decided to make myself up as a deer last night, it really just happened!
In saying that, it's a creative alternative to dressing up as "Sexy Santa" or an elf for the fancy dress Christmas party, which is why I have included a tutorial! Most of the make up I used was just cheap stuff as I don't like using my good make up for this kind of thing. I recommend the same to anyone who attempts this.

What you need :
❤ your regular shade of bronzer
❤ black facepaint
❤ white face paint
❤ white eyeshadow
❤ brown eyeshadow
❤ black eyeshadow
❤ brown eyebrow pencil
❤ black liquid liner
❤ white pencil eyeliner
❤ a set of wing-like lashes (cut a third off each eyelash)
❤ a set of long lashes

❤ tapered blush brush
❤ small, soft fluffy angled brush
❤ small stiff angled brush
❤ small fluffly blending brush
❤ dome brush
❤ large fluffy brush

Using your white facepaint, apply it all over your lid and up to you eyebrows. Continue to bring it down beneath your eye. The emphasis here is on creating a round shape with your facepaint. When you have achieved your desired shape, set the facepaint with white eyeshadow.

Use your liquid eyeliner to draw a line down each side of your nose, and outline your nostrils.

Connect the parallel lines using your black liquid liner. This creates our nose shape. Using a small, soft angled brush and brown eyeshadow, draw a contour line right under your cheekbone.

Sticking with your angled brush, drag the eyeshadow up and out, so that it is spread up to your temples. This is the outline of the deer's head. 

Use your bronzer and a small sized tapered blush brush to blend your bronzer into the brown contour line. Continue to apply the bronzer onto your outer cheeks, temples and into the hairline on your forehead. With a brown eyebrow pencil connect your eyebrows to the black line that runs down your nose. Your eyebrows should be rounded. If some of your natural eyebrow shows through (ruining the rounded look), conceal it with more white facepaint (don't forget to set the facepaint with white eyeshadow).

Taking your angled brush (which should have left-overs from the brown eyeshadow), drag the brush along the hairline of your temples. Blend this with your bronzer. Again taking your eyebrow pencil, draw a V on your forehead. This should be drawn above and between your eyebrows, as shown in the photo. You then  blend this out using your bronzer. Using a fluffy dome brush, apply white eyeshadow between your black nose lines. Drag this eyeshadow up over your eyebrows but beneath the V. Blend this into your temples using bronzer. 

Back to the black liquid eyeliner, start to draw a cut crease. Begin this line about a 1.5cm before the inner corners of your eyes (on the bridge of your nose). When the line reaches the outer part of your eye, you should do a slight flick up, as illustrated in the photo. Line your eyes normally by drawing a thin line close to your eyelashes.Using a fluffy blending brush, apply dark brown eyeshadow along the bridge of your nose. Blend it up into the corners of your eyes, and then blend it outwards onto your cheeks using your bronzer . 

Using a small angled brush and black eyeshadow, outline the circular shape of white facepaint below your eye. Connect this line to your black liquid line.

In this photo I have painted my lips with white facepaint, and used white eyeshadow over my chin and around my nose/lips area. I have also applied bronzer along my jawline.

Taking your eyebrow pencil again, draw a thick horizontal line on your nose, below the curved line. With your white eyeliner pencil, fill in the space between the brown pencil line and black liquid line. Now its time to use your black facepaint. Using a flat brush, pat it on the tip of your nose and blend it upwards into the brown line. Continue to paint the tip of your nose, under your nose and around your nostrils, keeping withing the liquid lines.

For the nose shape, you can draw an outline first with your black liquid liner or draw it freehand with the black facepaint. I chose to do this freehand. To begin, draw a line from your nostrils downwards (basically outlining your laughter lines). Outline two semi-circles as shown in the picture. Connect these lines with a wide U-shaped line. Fill in between the lines with your black facepaint. For more definition, use your white eyeliner pencil to outline the white semi-circles (which are nostrils).

Taking the angled brush I used with dark brown eyeshadow, I further traced my laughter lines and outlined the ovular white patch around my chin, lips and nose area. I linked my contour lines (on my cheeks) to this outline and used the dark brown eyeshadow all under my chin. With my brown eyebrow pencil, I drew an upside down smile on my lips. Taking my bronzer and a small blending brush, I connected my lips to the brown line under my chin.

Here I have applied fake eyelashes to my top lashes. The lashes I used are winged, outward facing lashes. I cut a third off the set so that the lashes were just applied to the outer corners of my eyes.

I went on to apply my large lashes underneath my eyes, along the drawn on black line. Following this, I am FINITO!
