I’ve been hearing a lot of Mummy references over the past few weeks. This inspired me to make an Egyptian Collar tutorial to share with all of you. So let’s get started.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Mehron Gold Powder
  2. Wolfe Black
  3. #4 Round Brush
  4. Makeup Brush
  5. Ben Nye Shimmer Powder

The Application:

You will need to apply Foundation if your model does not already have it on when you begin. Now, let’s start with Ben Nye Shimmer Powder. You will apply the shimmer powder with a makeup brush on the entire face. Continue using your makeup brush and load it with Mehron Gold Powder on the neck, ears and shoulders. Next, use the same brush to contour the cheeks. You will not need to reload.

Mix the Mehron Gold Powder with a small amount of water and load it on your #4 Round Brush and apply to the eyelids. Reload with Mehron Gold Powder and paint the lips as picture below. Egyptian Makeup by Stacey Perry

Next, grab your Wolf Black and load your #4 Round Brush to paint the eye design as pictured.

Continue with your #4 Round Brush loaded with Wolfe Black and paint two parallel lines around the neck, followed by evenly spaced vertical lines painted in the inside. From here you will paint a zig-zag or triangle shapes underneath the parallel lines as pictured above.

Add another line underneath the triangles. You will skip a space and add 2 more parallel lines on the shoulders. Here’s where you  can get creative. I chose the pattern pictured above, but you can make you own if you like.

Continue with your pattern of parallel and horizontal lines until you reach the end of the collar bone. This size of this design will vary from person to person since everyone is shaped differently. I personally like this design since you can easily change up the patterns or add bling and glitter to give an even bigger wow factor.

I hope you enjoy creating your own Egyptian Collars! Please share yours with us on Facebook. Remember… we want to hear from you so let us know what you’d like to see in future blogs.
