WATER ZODIAC SIGN MAKEUP STEP 1: LAY YOUR FOUNDATION
Start by applying a matte foundation base and use your fingertips or a makeup sponge to blend out. Apply concealer where needed.
Attention, astrology fans! If you’re a Scorpio, Pisces, or Cancer (or just know one!), this Halloween look is for you. Inspired by the zodiac’s water signs, makeup artist Piper Nelson of Instagram’s @piperartistry has created an ethereal eye makeup masterpiece complete with water droplets and finished with our new Into The Zodiac Collection lip colors. Go into the blue with us and learn how to get this awesome look, step by step.
Watch Piper Nelson create the way-cool water look and recreate it at home.
Set your makeup base with a banana powder so it lasts. Use extra powder where you’re oiliest.
Next, apply a gold highlighter to the top of your cheekbones for a seamless, reflective effect.
Start with two shades of pencils: a medium color and deeper color. Take your medium shade and add definition to the bottom of your brows. Then, using the darker shade, define the back of your brow. Lastly, using the medium shade again, create hair-like strokes at the front of your brow.
Now for eye makeup. Using blue eyeshadow, wash the color onto your upper lid and surrounding area to create a watercolor effect.
Using more blue eyeshadow, apply the color directly onto the entire lid and the outer upper lid. Then, do the same on your opposite eye.
Next, use a purple eyeshadow to smoke out your lower lash line.
Amp up your eye look by lining your water line and tight line with a navy blue eyeliner.
Using micellar water and a cotton swab, lightly create spots where you want a “droplet” to appear, applying further apart as you get further from your lid. Remember to use the dry side of the swab to blot your spot and stop any running or dripping. Next, create droplets with a white eyeliner. Dot liner over your spots and twist—it’s that simple.
Add an even coat of mascara from root to tip. Then go back with your eyes closed and reapply on the ends for a lifted, full look.
Apply Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Into The Zodiac in ‘Scorpio – Believer’ or another water sign shade. And check out all the shades—there’s one for every star sign!
