halloween tutorial: tribal/festival princess

Hello loves! This look was inspired by a lot of tribal looks I’ve been seeing recently. I knew I wanted to create something really simple and easy for anyone to recreate. Not only is this the perfect throw on costume look, you could absolutely wear this as a festival look too!

products used:

make up for ever step one primer – nourishing

becca backlight priming filter

doll 10 hydra fluid foundation – light

cover fx custom cover drops – moonlight

urban decay naked skin concealer – fair

laura mercier secret brightening powder – 01

morphe eyeshadow palette -35O

mac gigiblack mascara

ardell lashes – wispies

step 1: prime – I prepped my skin with MUF nourishing primer and layered becca backlight priming filter on top for extra glowy skin.

step 2: foundation – I wanted very glowy skin with a sheen so I mixed cover fx moonlight drops and doll 10 foundation.

step 3: concealer – I concealed my under eyes, eyelids, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead with UD naked concealer.

step 4: powder – I set my under eyes and eyelids with laura mercier brightening powder.

step 5: contour – I carved out my cheeks with ash brown and mink from abh for a really strong defined contour.


step 6: bronzer – I used a big fluffy brush to bronze the outer edges of my face with too faced chocolate bronzer.

step 7: blush – I mixed two colors from the morphe 9n palette and swept them from the apples of my cheeks to the temples.


step 8: highlight – I mixed prosecco pop and champagne pop and applied it to the tops of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose.

step 9: shadow – I blended 4, 5, and 6 from the morphe 35o all over my crease and drew it out into a wing shape. I then took 8 in the same area to warm the crease. I took 7, 9, and 12 all over my crease and lids drawn out into an elongated v. I then packed 10 and 11 all over my lid defined the wing and swept the same shadows underneath my lower lash line. I dipped my brush into mac fix plus and packed 1 over the inner 2/3 of my lid and 3 in the very inner corner. I then used 2 to highlight my brow bone.


step 10: brows – I filled in my brows using 7 from the morphe 35O. I set my brows with abh clear brow gel.

step 11: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 12: false lashes – I used ardell wispies. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 13: ‘tribal’ marks – I used colourpop exit liner to create the triangles near my eyes and the lines near my mouth.

step 14: lips – I lined my lips using mac whirl and went over that with mac angel lipstick. I put ofra fifth ave on my cupids bow for a pop of gold.

here’s the completed look again:
