It’s almost time for Halloween! So here cometh the tutorials! Be sure to check out our ones from last year here, here, here, here and here. Today’s tutorial will be the Bambi look that was so wildly popular last year. So this is for any of you that want to look somewhat cute on Halloween, e.g. no blood or guts hanging off your face.
What I used: Bourjois bronzing powder, Essence liquid eyeliner, W&W shimmer brick, Body Shop shadow quad, Benefit Hoola, NYX jumbo pencil in milk, MAC shadow in embark and charcoal brown, and a pair of false eyelashes. My antlers were a gift from my sister in Japan.
As a base I used my Garnier BB cream in light (because I knew I was going to be taking it all off in an hour) and on my brows I used MAC fling brow pencil and MAC charcoal brown.
I bronzed up my skin with the Bourjois powder along my temples, forehead and cheeks and I used hoola to sculpt the shadow under my cheekbones. To really make the cheeks more rounded, make sure to curve your line to the ends of your nostrils. To highlight I used the shimmer brick on the highest points of my face and the matte white shadow from the Body Shop quad under my eyes and in between my brows and on my forehead.
Here is where I made my first mistake. I used my jumbo pencil to create a more intense white dot and it messed with the shape. Instead I should have continued using my stencil I made and dusted the white shadow one only. I created two different sized stencils filled in the shapes with the shadow building up colour as I went.
Next, contour down the sides of your nose, I used embark and charcoal brown and right down the bridge of my nose using the white shadow. Then using a matte black liquid liner fill in under your nose and nostrils, making sure to create a v-shape that only extends under the nostrils. WARNING: be sure to test the liquid liner first in that area as you will be smelling this stuff strongly the entire time you have it on your face. So check out how it reacts to your shnoze first.
I created a slight cute crease with charcoal brown and filled in my lid using a warm bronze colour from the shadow quad. Then make a winged liner on either corner of the eye followed by a pair of falsies. Be sure to purchase some lashes that are fuller on the ends, that way you’ll get more of the Disney look.
Using the jumbo pencil I created a line under my lower lashes to really open up the eyes and made a set of bottom lashes using charcoal brown. I first tried the liquid liner but the lash lines became too defined. Unfortunately I took these photos at 5pm so the lighting is crap but the bottom lashes really helped to pull the look together. And finally I finished the look by filling in my lips with Essence lip pencil in 11 in the nude. It’s great quality for the price and an awesome dupe for a Kylie Jenner lip.
