Halloween How-To: The Fairy Princess

While Minnie Driver decided to take her glitter makeup patterns to the extreme in her fairy princess costume, you can tone down her look from Heidi and Seal's Halloween Bash last year and highlight just one area of your face with glitter.

For a few more modified ideas and details on how to create a fairy princess makeup look this Halloween on your own, read more


  • FACE: Make sure that your skin is nice and hydrated. The last thing you want is your skin drying out and glitter getting caught in the creases. For this look, use a heavy moisturizer or nourishing night balm as a makeup primer.
  • CHEEKS: Go for the glow! After you apply some light pink (think sweet-looking) blush to best suit your skin tone, feel free to get wild with your highlighter. This is the time to play around with a dewy complexion. One of my favorite products is Nars The Multiple in Copacabana. Just strike and blend and repeat as many times as you fancy.
  • EYES: Your eyes and what you decide to add to your cheeks are going to be the focus of this look. You can add as much or as little glitter as you like. A sparkly product I love — and which happens to be great to draw with on your cheeks with, too — is Heavy Metal Glitter Liner from Urban Decay. Line your eyes with it, and add a touch the inner corners for added dramatic flair. As for shadow, the sky is the limit. I would wear shiny silvery or blue shades on the lids and blend them all the way up to the brow.
  • LIPS: For your lips, you can either go with a sweet pink lipstick or lip gloss like MAC Tinted Lipglass in Prrr, or you can match your lipstick like Minnie did to the color scheme that she chose. Either way, for this look, I love how she matched her lips and her nails. That extra little bit of detail really pulls the look together!
