- Gather all the necessary supplies and be sure to work in an open area, preferably with a large mirror.
- Make sure your face is thoroughly cleansed – we want a fresh canvas to start with so the primer applies properly.
- Use a colour-correcting primer and apply to any area you will be putting makeup on.
- Start with the black contours. Take a crease brush and apply black shapes to any areas you want to be the darkest.
- It’s a good idea to have a shape in mind before starting this. Doing it on the fly might result in an unsymmetrical pattern.
- In any area you wish, blend the black so it fades into the skin. For this one, I blended at the ends of the shapes by the eyes and nose.
- Choose the colours you wish to overlay and start with the darkest. Use a crease eye shadow brush.
- I began by layering blue, then added purple, pink, and yellow.
- Work from the eye outward. Use the brush to apply layers of colour into various spots and blend well. Leave open spaces in the design.
- Add white to any areas of the face you wish to highlight by using a loose-bristled round brush.
- In any of the left open spaces between the colours, add white to bring brightness to the makeup.
- Apply black eyeliner and mascara to frame the eyes.
- Take a fine-tipped brush and dip it in water. Using your loose white power, apply dots along your design to mimic stars.
- DONE! Now all you need is to find a matching costume.
