Marceline Make-up Tutorial

Marceline the Vampire Queen make-up inspiration for your next Adventure Time dress-up event
My daughter requested some make-up for her best friends birthday celebrations, they decided that they both would go as Adventure Time characters. At first I thought perfect, easy costume, not much to do... less work for me ;) until I looked at a picture of Marceline the Vampire Queen closely.. ... umm what to do?

Below is the easy step by step guide on how I did her make-up
- primer or moisturiser
- lightest foundation and powder that is available to you
I already had a white compressed powder so I used this over my own L'Oreal foundation (my skin is quite pale)
- black or dark grey matt eye shadow
- mascara
- red lipstick
- red lip liner

Smashbox photo finish primer
L'Oreal True Match Foundation Porcelain
Bloody Mary Makeup Pressed Wet or Dry Heat Powder, White
Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Eyeshadow
Maybelline Greatlash Mascara
MAC Lipstick

1/ prime the face - I used smashbox photo finish primer
If you do not have a primer then use a good moisturiser as you do not want dry skin when white/light powder is going to be on your skin. Do not skip this step otherwise your skin will be flacky when the white is on
2/ apply light foundation and then light/white powder to set your face
3/ brush a thick line of black eye shadow on upper lid, from center to corner
4/ with the same colour eyeshadow blend around corner of lid and side of eye
5/ do the same under the eye blending it so its not harsh on the edge
6/ apply mascara
7/ apply red lipstick
8/ apply 2 dots on neck for vampire bites, I used red lip liner
9/ tease roots of hair, spray and puff it up as much as possible to create volume. She has huge big hair!

and there you have an adorable human version of Marceline the vampire queen. I think you could do a lot of things with this character as she is a cartoon vampire which means you can have fun creating her human form :)

Off to celebrate
I wish Princess Bubblegum had her crown on when I got snap happy with the camera lol

crazy wind photo... sometimes wind can be your friend :)

I think this would be an easy costume for Halloween or any dress up party, my daughter wore her own high waisted jeans from ASOS, plain black singlet, Dr. Martens from The Iconic and a fitted flannie from Boohoo, all of which we had.

I am thinking of doing more make-up tutorials before Halloween, maybe some horror craft theme DIY's too, so keep an eye out.  Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin & pinterest <3
