80s Rainbow Leopard Make-up Tutorial
by Pamela Wasabi and make-up artist and hair stylist, Lymari Veloz
•Before applying the colors, freestyle the background shape with your fingers using the Stick it Primer. The primer helps hold the eye shadow in place throughout the day and enhance the colors.
•Then, take the Fluff Shadow Brush, and starting in the middle of your background shape, swing the brush up and down to color the area with Medusa’s Electro Eye Shadows. Repeat the process with every shade of the rainbow.
NOTE: Start in the middle of your face so you can move freely up or down and adapt the shape that
you are drawing to the size of your face.
•When you are done, blend the colors using the Kabuki brush. Blend it in by using Dangerous Liaison Blush Powder, it will soften the colors and will get rid of any edges.
•If you don’t have an outliner you can mix in the Eye Liner Seal with Black Eye Dust. Pour a small pinch (dime size) of the liquid into a recipient or surface and then mix in with another pinch of the eye dust. Use the Angle Eyeliner Brush to contour background shape. You don’t have to outline the entire background just fade in with brush at ends.
NOTE: This new mix you’ve just created dries up quick!
•You will need the Smudge Brush and Black Eye Dust to create the leopard spots. When creating the spots, tell yourself you are doing incomplete circles. Do different sizes of spots across the face. For the very tiny ones, change brushes and use the Eyeliner Brush.
•Outline the eye making a cat-eye shape. You can use the Angle Eyeliner Brush and the solution that we used before for the background outline. Color your top and bottom lid. Outlining both eye lids will give your face a more fierce look! So go for it…
•Now, for the final touch we are going to use Glitter and Medusa’s Eye Dust to highlight the spot colors. Use the equivalent color of eye dust or glitter to the eye shadow you used for the background-shape. Apply with Smudge Brush.
•To enhance contrast retouch the spots’ black outlines with a liquid eyeliner.
•Apply your favorite liquid foundation to the other section of your face. Use a sponge to tap it on. Then use your Kabuki brush and apply Healthy Body Shimmer on that portion of your face. You will see sparks flying around! Enhance your chick, by using Dangerously Liaison Blush.
•Cat eye this eye too!
•Use Medusa’s Waterproof Green Envy Mascara for both eyes. Use it as a brush to define the eyebrows as well. You might want to use fake black eye lashes to enforce the dramatic look in your eyes.
•For your lips first apply the Rumors True Violet lip gloss. Then, using your fingers, apply Electro Magenta Eye Shadow on the middle portion of your lips. Blend again with lip gloss… and
