Begin by loading your Kabuki brush with Paradise White and using a circular motion, cover the face. Next, load your filbert brush with the magenta and black from your Global Split Cake and paint the eye cavity. Keep the darker color on the outside. Then, load your blush brush with Mehron Hot Pink Powder and contour the cheeks and temples.
Load your filbert brush with Mehron Hot Pink Powder and Ben Nye Violet and apply on top of the paint eye cavities. Use a generous amount of hot pink on the top lids. You will also want to apply the hot pink on top of the violet so it will glow under black lights.
Next, load your Flat brush with your Neon Arty Cake (any neon arty cake will do) and apply flower petals shapes to the chin, forehead and sides of eye cavities as shown.
Then, load your #4 round brush with Neon Green from your Global Palette and paint swirls and leaves as shown. Next, load your #4 round brush with Paradise Black and paint the nose, then powder with the Hot Pink.
Load your #4 round brush with Neon Green and add dots around the eyes, you will want to alternate neon green and neon blue. Then, load your #4 round brush with FAB Minty Blue and paint the lips then outline the flower petals and swirls.
Load your filbert with Ben Nye Violet and darken the cheek cavity. Then, load your #4 round brush with Paradise Black and outline everything and give eyeliner. You will also add a few teardrops and paint the lip stitches.
Finally, add a little hot pink powder to the lip stitches. You can add extra uv color to make sure it really pops if needed. And you are all done!
