Feeling a little devilish? This sexy She-Devil design is sure to seduce all the naughty boys this Halloween!
Step 1: Apply the base
This step is optional, but adds a mystical effect to the overall look. Using a Kabuki brush and FAB Glitter Gold, apply a light coat of gold evenly all around the face.
Step 2: Contouring and Eye Shadow
Using FAB Nut Butter Brown or FAB Bronze with a Kabuki brush, create some contouring below the cheekbones, at the jaw line, and in the center of the forehead to add dimension. Using Elisa Griffith's Color Me Pro Powders, I began by applying a bronze eyeshadow to the upper outer eyelid and began applying a dark red all around the eyes.
Step 3: Dramatic eye makeup and lips
I ended up using Elisa Griffith's black eye shadow to create a cat-like shape around the model's eyes. I created a sharp edge of the red eye shadow on the upper lid at a 45 degree angle, and then blended it on the bottom of the eyes into brown and then let it fade. I liked the contrast of the sharp edge on the upper eye to the soft gradual fade on the lower eye. Using FAB Red Rage as a base to the lips, let it dry completely, and then add bronze eye shadow as well as a little bit of black eye shadow to the lips to make the colors cohesive with the eye design.
Step 4: Paint the veins
Using a very small round brush and FAB Red Rage, paint wavy vein-like lines coming from the bottom of the eyes. This will give your She-Devil look a creepy edge that's sure to evoke a reaction.
Step 5: Apply the Horns
I pre-made these horns in anticipation of creating this design. The whole process took only a few minutes, but needed a couple of days to dry. Using Model Magic sculpting clay, I formed the horns with my hands and let them dry overnight. The next day I painted them with gold acrylic craft paint, let dry and then rubbed with black acrylic craft paint to add a weathered look. I let them dry overnight again, and then they were ready to use. I adhered them using Pros-Aide glue by applying the glue to the flat bottom edges of the horns and then waiting a couple of minutes until the glue was clear and tacky before adhering them to her forehead.
Voila! You have a simple but sexy She-Devil look that any slightly naughty girl would love to wear!
