Part 3 of my DC-inspired, wearable makeup looks was my most challenging yet: Wonder Woman! Wonder Woman is easily one of my favourite DC heroes but the makeup look I wanted to create involved trying out a few new techniques which I’ve never done before!
The first big difficult thing I needed to do was to use stickers as little stencils to create some cut-out effects in the blue gradient eyeshadow.
I have no idea if any face-specific stickers exist, so I raided the stationary section at WH Smith. They worked surprisingly well, however, an obstacle was how I had to ‘dab’ the eyeshadow on with a really soft brush, rather than brushing it on. This made blending the 2 shades of blue together more difficult, but if I’d brushed instead of ‘dabbed’ then the stickers moved or fell off. I just had to go really slowly and build up the colour really gradually.
Another difficult part was the cut-crease. I’ve never (intentionally) done one of these before. I used the NYX white eyeshadow base to cover the lid and then applied a red powder shadow over the top. The main issue is that the NYX base, when applied thick enough to cover the blue, was very sticky and it look a long time to dry, even with the shadow. If I tried this look again I’d probably use the Revolution full-coverage concealer instead.
Another thing I’d change about this look is to add more gold – Wonder Woman needs ALL THE SPARKLE!
