Animal Print Everything!
I am sure you have seen it by now, almost everywhere you look these days if it isn’t face masks for sale or the TikTok logo it is animal print but it is no longer just covering our bodies it is on the eyes, on the face even on the lips and I am living for it!
Now, I don’t know if this is down to Carol Baskin and The Tiger King but I would say so. Doesn’t matter, point is it is back and its everywhere! Give it a month and we will be back to 2005 and using hair dye to put some animal print in our hair
Below are some of the most beautiful examples of this trend in case you were planning on jumping aboard I know after seeing these I definitely am. Carry on reading and I will give you a quick tutorial on how you can jump on this trend!
I don’t know about you but I saw this trend and just had to jump on it immediately. I have done animal print before but never as a look it was always makeup for a costume so I am super feeling that this has came into the mainstream
Want this look yourself? Here is how to do it!
- First start with a primed and powdered base, I always use an eyelid primer then pat it down with a translucent powder to give myself a silky base Note: Ignore my lack of lashes they are there I am just a blonde
2. Next you will want to pack on your base colour, I went with a vibrant purple as I wanted more of a cartoon/ made up animal print. *Tip: if you want a clean line use a piece of tape give it a tap on your leg or hand or what ever is nearest to you and stick it from the corner of your eye up towards the tip of your brow.
3. So I wanted a cut crease look so I only apply the next colour to the sections that will have the print. I take a deeper purple and lay on what I can only describe as spots, imperfect spots. After this I cut my crease with a lighter colour
4. Next, you want to define those print details, take a black eyeliner or a fine brush and some snazaroo as I did and draw on a couple of lines on either side of the spots you drew in the last part. Make sure these are all different for a natural look
5. After this is time to add your wing. I love a dramatic wing, I don’t actually remember the last time I did a none dramatic wing. Take a black liquid eyeliner and sweep on your wings. *Tip: If you want to make life easier with your wings don’t ever complete one eye then start on the next. I do mine in at least three sections matching each on the other eye. If you want to know all my eyeliner tips and how I do my wings in record time drop into the comments and let me know.
6. Next, I take my white liquid eyeliner and draw on my under eye highlights, this helps to bring the lines in the makeup out and also highlight your eyes a little
7. I then take that same eye shadow we packed on to the top lid and dust it over the underneath of my lower lash line, this gives your eyes more of a fullness and I think kind of finishes of the look in a way. I will usually take a darker colour and dust that over the outer edge of the eye a little
8. Last but definitely not least is the lower eye black liquid eyeliner, this one you need to be careful, you don’t want it in your eye so slowly draw your lines on in a sort of sad face shape once it has dried use a small brush to dust over some black just to blend it in a little under the eye.
BONUS: So, this one does make the look a much more in your face look but I love the anime big doll eye look so when I finish my make up I will often take my liquid liner and draw on some lower lashes. I love the effect it gives. Did you try this bonus tip? Let us know in the comments what you thought of it if you did.
