Jem Halloween makeup tutorial that will take you back to the '80s
Calling all '80s kids! If you were glued to the TV when Jem & The Holograms were on, you can finally live out your childhood dreams and become her for Halloween. This truly outrageous look embodies the excess of the '80s in the very best way. Grab your girls and round out the band.
You will need:
- White- or flesh-toned eyeliner
- Pink cream color
- Pink eyeshadow to set the cream
- Metallic pink liquid liner
- Loose pink cosmetic glitter
- Glitter adhesive
- Black pencil liner
- Black mascara
- False lashes
- Hot-pink lip liner
- Baby pink lipstick
- Baby pink lip gloss
Using a flesh-toned liner like the NYX Wonder Pencil, I am going to start by tracing the outline of the geometric shape surrounding my eye. It is essentially an inverted triangle. This helps to perfect the shape before going in full force with your pink.
Using a flat, synthetic brush, begin applying your pink cream color, working from the outside toward the inside. It doesn’t dry very well but don’t worry — we’ll set it!
Apply cream color over entire eyelid, bringing it all the way over your brows.
Using a fluffy brush, lightly dab a matte pink shadow like Savage from the Urban Decay Electric Palette, over the cream color. This will help to set it, prevent creasing and smudging.
With your same brush, sweep a little of the pink shadow under your cheekbones for some subtle '80s contour.
Now, with a metallic pink liquid liner, trace the perimeter of your pink triangle for added definition.
Dip a brush into glitter adhesive, followed by a generous amount of loose pink glitter. Dab some along the inner edge of your triangle, using you finger to blend it out.
Dab some glitter on your brow bone to highlight.
Now, with a black pencil liner, line your inner rim, both top and bottom.
Apply a generous amount of mascara on top and bottom lashes.
Line your lips with a hot-pink pencil liner.
Now apply a cotton candy pink lipstick, creating a dramatic ombre effect.
Dab a matching baby pink lip gloss on top. OCC Stained Gloss in Hedonist is a gorgeous bubblegum shade for this.
Place a dramatic pair of false lashes along your top lash line.
Put your hair in a low bun or braid pinned up and then put on your wig cap.
Put on your pink wig and adjust the bangs to be just above your brows.
Using hairspray, make sure the bangs are piecey and chunky.
