The Animal Series : FAWN MAKEUP - Simplified & Toned Down | acupofjessicatedcoconut


Around about Halloween time last year, I saw so many pictures on various blogs and instagrams of people dressed as fawns or deers. I thought the makeup look was so beautiful however some were quite dramatic and very bold so I decided to try out a more simplified and toned down version of the fawn make up look.

1. I did my regular base routine to even out my skin tone - I used my Face It Radiance Concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes and set it all with my L'oreal Translucide Powder in Light.

2. Next up I primed my eyes and eyeshadow is optional for this, but I just swept a warm toned medium brown all over the lid to add more dimension and emphasise the eyes.

3. As for eyeliner, I stuck to my holy grail Clio Kill Black Liquid Eyeliner to create a winged eyeliner look. I took the line past the inner corner of my eye for a more elongated look and also made sure to thicken the eyeliner in the middle portion of my eye to try to balance it out by making the eyes look slightly more open.

4. Do your brows and apply mascara as per usual - you can use dramatic falsies for a more bold look.

5. Next up, I literally piled on the bronzer. Using my NYC smooth skin sunny bronzer, I used an angle brush to apply the powder slightly above where you would usually contour. This gives the appearance of lifted cheekbones. Once you've put on enough product and the bronzer is prominent, blend out the edges and add white dots on top of the bronzer with a white kajal eyeliner pencil.

6. Use a black kajal eyeliner pencil to create the nose by colouring in the tip of your nose in.

7. Draw a straight line down from the centre of the nose where you have filled it in and connect it to the middle of your cupid's bow.

8. Fill in your top lip with the black eyeliner to complete the look.
