Step 1: the base

First, I start by applying a light base with a sponge over the eyelids with white and pink. For this, I use glycerin based paints as they are much easier to blend.


Step 2: creating the shape

For this mask I don´t want to fill in the shape entirely with paint as I want it to have a lighter feel. Also, I will be adding glitter to this later so I want to leave some open space for that. I use a one stroke for the shape and I soften the edges with a sponge while the paint is still wet. This one stroke called Gypsy by Cameleon is one of my absolute favourites!

Step 3: adding stencils

For more interest and depth I then add some pattern with a stencil. I use a finger dauber for the stenciling, this gives me more control over where I want the pattern, especially under the eyes. I pick up color from the one stroke and use the dark part of the cake for the top area and the red/pink color under the eyes as I don´t want this area to look too heavy. The stencil I use here has a snakeskin pattern, but you can experiment with other textures as well.


Step 4: the horns

Using a round brush I pick up the red from the one stroke cake and paint the horns.


Step 5:  line work and shading

As the one stroke cake here already has a black part, I only need to add some line work around the horns. To soften the black a bit I go over the horns with a soft blending brush.


Step 6: glitter and highlights

I go over the horns with a white paint to create some highlights - and then its time to glam the whole design up with some chunky glitter and some lip color! I only put glitter in a few selected areas so as not to cover up the background pattern.


Add a custom made bling to the centre of the mask for an even more glamorous and sparkly she-devil look!
