How To Do Angel Makeup
This video with make-up artist Mandy Jhamat shows a step-by-step tutorial to recreate a beautiful, ethereal party look using gold, silver and iridescent colors. This is a great look for costume parties, masquerade balls and Hallowe'en!
So, now, we're going to do How to do Angel Makeup. For this look, I am going to do lots of, kind of, golds and silvers around the eyes, and then add a little bit of glitter and some gems. So, I'm going to start with a cream gold.
I want this look to be really soft. So, we're going to rather use my fingers for this. I'm going to place the gold in kind of a half-moon shape, from right underneath the eyes and kind of dab it, so you get some real, kind of, different tones of it.
So I am using one finger to dab and one finger, kind of, to blend, make it round. What we've done with the eyebrows is we've used some eyebrow wax, just to make them a bit more subtle. You can choose to block the eyebrows out completely if you wanted.
So we try to make her look almost like she's got, kind of, a dusting of powder. So, although it's a cream, you can kind of make it look powdery by distributing it not so evenly like that, slightly over the eyelid, and then in the crease, just a tiny bit there. I'm just going to blend that.
Because we more or less placed where we want in the color, I'm kind of dabbing, just to soften it a bit, not actually move the color too much. So, I'm keeping it most intense around this eye area here, and then just bringing the color out into the hairline, and we're going to repeat that on the other side. Next, we're going to have a silver cream.
Again, with your fingers, make sure you rub it into your finger. And then, so this silver is going to go more into the temples. I'm going to bring it round.
We're just extending the color you've created with the gold. Want to be a bit more random with the silver but just kind of dab it; but don't blend too much. And if you can, try and get a cream that's got, kind of, more than one tone of silver and gold in it because that would give a really nice ethereal effect.
Okay, use a brush to brush any areas that are too strong. Okay, now that we've finished the silver on the other eye as well, both sides are fairly symmetrical. We're going to do some iridescent pigment over the whole area.
What I'm going to use for this is a pure pigment. It's quite nice, it's got like a, kind of, white and silver little particles. Going to use a soft floppy brush, loading that up, and exactly what I did there, so that's what we're going to be doing onto the skin.
Good technique is just to tap your finger or we're going get too much on. I don't want a huge amount of glitter on the face. Right, we're just going to line the lashes with some black eyeliner.
Keep it soft. Now, we're going to add a few gems to finish the look. Okay, so I'm going to stick these gems on with some eyelash glue.
I'm going to use a mixture of gems. So, you can really play around with these, and get creative. I'm going to keep the gems fairly randomly placed, rather than in any kind of pattern.
It's quite nice to mix different shapes and colors together. I'm keeping them all quite gold, but you can have silvers and greens and reds. So, we've finished the gems, which have been placed on both sides fairly randomly.
And then, also, we've added kind of some feathery lashes, just to the ends of each of the eyes. Right, now, we're going to finish off with the lips. I'm actually using a cream blush for the lips.
I want them to be quite pinky. So, just dab the color in, gently with your finger, all the way along, and keep the lips quite rounded. And then, we're going to actually finish the lips with continuing the, kind of, gold theme of the rest of the face, some of the cream gold.
We only want to keep it into the middle of the bottom lip. And that's how to do an angel look! .
