Natures spirit.
We had a halloweenparty yestereve, so this is what I did.
Ofcourse this is just my view, but maybe someone finds this useful. :)

I used Grimas beard glue for the leaves and flowers and 6 different eyeshadows:
Dark green, bright green(powder), turqoise, brown, bronze and nacre white.
All others are Grimas except the bright green. You can use what ever you like.

Hopefully someone can actually understand anything I've said here. :D

  • How to create a face painting. Nymph - Step 1
    Step 1

    First do your make up base, foundation, powder, concealer, whatever is normal to you.

    Here I've already added some bronze to the inner eye and nacre white just in the inner corners.

    Then some leaves. Here I have two leaves on both sides about 1 finger away from the outer corner of my eyes. I used only small, max pea sized gluespots.

    Add some bright green in the outer corners and about halfway under the eye. I also put some dark green in the remaining triangles (leaves leave free) on my temples.

    Step 3

    Add some brown in half of the eye and on both sides of your nose, leaving only the bridge without color.

    Here I also added bronze on my cheekbones, under the nose and chin and some brown under the cheekbones.

  • How to create a face painting. Nymph - Step 4
    Step 4

    Here I've added some white flowers; three on each side on the cheeks and one on the forehead. I also added some lipbalm and rubbed the powdery bright green on it. But some turqoise around mouth to bit mix the colors.

    Step 5

    I glued a pair of leaves between eyebrows and second ones in the remaining space to hide the eyebrows. I didn't but any glue on the eyebrows but under.
    Some dark green under the eyes,just beneath the lashes, and remaining spots between the leaves . Eyelining with moist slim brush with dark green (this is why I love Grimas!).

    You can do some vines or twigs with the dark green or brown, only imagination is stopping you. :)

    Step 6

    Here the make up is finished. I've united the white flowers on my cheeks as a wine towards my ears. Some mascara and then just have to do something with the hair.
    I made curly mess with some flowers, twigs and leaves sticking from it.

    Tadaa, done! :)

that's awesome! I was going to go as a nymph for halloween until my boyfriend decided at the last minute he wanted to do something else as a couple.
