Title: fae makeup?
Post by: Shilori on May 09, 2011, 11:09:20 AM
Hey everyone,
I am a newer fae and I have a question on the makeup. I am a water fae and my garb is blues/turquoise/silvers etc. I really don't want to do blue makeup, but am wondering what other colors I should use? I honestly thought about doing it with browns like I do every other day and maybe a sheer lipgloss, but I am not really sure... any ideas?

Well, what SYLE of makeup are you thinking of doing?  If you are just doing "mundane" makeup then I suppose the colors don't really matter too much.  If you are going to mystify it a bit I would use silvers with touches of blue and turquoise.  Are you thinking full face color?  Hairline color?  Designs?  Adding jewels, fake lashes, glitter?  As with all things fae you can take it to the extreme or keep it pretty tame or find somewhere in between that suits you best.  I, personally, like the look of more fantasy makeup on the fae (not that I always do it for myself, but I do enjoy it!)  There are quite a few YouTube tutorials on fairy makeup and those could help you get some ideas.  =)

I might bring out the silver actually it will be typcial, but it will look great with your silver in your costume.

Thank you so much! I have seen some of the tutorials on the fae makeup and now I am starting to decide lol. I am definately thinking about the silvers and may put a bit of blue in there, but not too much. I would do some glitter but I know how hard it is to get out of garb and clothing, and don't want to ruin anyone's stuff >.<! I'll probably do a lot of practicing untill I can figure out exactly what I like :) thank you all for your help!

I personally use quite a bit of glitter for my make up look. I apply it directly to my face. I do get quite a bit of it on my own garb. But then again mine is simple cottons and denom so it all washes out quite nicely. The stuff I put on my face typically stays on my face. So there isn't much transfer between me and the patrons. If there is it is pretty minimal, so I wouldn't worry about any make up glitter transfering over. It is more when you hand it out that you get it on others garb.

But do put up pictures of work in progress!

I noticed we've got several different kinds of Fae in the Library, but none of them are just called "Faeries" and I was wondering if "Faerie" was a generic term applied to all Fae creatures, or if it's something else. How is the term "Faerie" used in this world? Is it used at all?

Thanks.

I think that Fae are the magical creatures.  Then there are different types of Fae.  Brownies, faeries (fairies), imps, pixies, nixies... etc etc.  There are also Seelie and Unseelie (the bright and not).

Hi momma!

Gonna be out at TRF this weekend, wish you could be there too.

On the makeup front... macline has some really nice shimmering eye shadows that I use for the gold or silver highlights around the eyes.  Plus it stays put all day.

SO late to this game but I thought since I just designed my make-up for a water fae that I would share:

That looks great Fae!  I have been trying to figure out how I will do my make up to go with my new ensemble and will test some things out.  I will post pics if any of it turns out half way decent lol.

go to deviant art and look up fairy makeup... or be specific as to what kind of fae you are. WHat kind of fae are you Bonny? I might be able to dig some stuff out of my faespiration folder for you!
Title: Re: fae makeup?
Post by: Bonny Pearl on April 15, 2012, 12:03:29 PM
I will look that up.  I am going for a midnight fairy look.  My colors are a dark purple/plum, a dark stormy grey and black.

I find that it is best not to limit yourself to "faerie makeup" when searching. Glance around at eccentric makeup for models, magazines, runways, whatever. There is wonderful fantasy makeup out there that isn't under a fantasy tag.

Post by: Bonny Pearl on April 16, 2012, 01:05:05 PM
Yep, I have seen a lot of really great designs on the web.  I am limited on what I can do artistically with make-up though.  I can envision it like there is no tomorrow, but applying the make-up... not so much lol.

 :o :o :o  Fae Overload lol!  Wow, so much to look at!   I already see a couple of favs so at least I know where to start narrowing it down.  :)

They are all so lovely! My biggest advice would be to take it slow and steady. I don't know what sort of brushes you use, but use many in order to create a look. And with eyeliner, for those precise lines I suggest a felt tip liquid eyeliner pen. L'Oreal's Linear Intense is my favorite. Just go slow and steady. Trying to rush it will just make it look sloppy. The better you get at it, the faster you can go, so just practice practice practice.

And make sure to blend. 8D
