Instagram Filter Inspired Makeup Tutorial (VIDEO!) + DIY Golden Leaf Crown

Thursday

Today, I’m excited to share my first makeup tutorial video. Thanks kids for taking a nap, so that Mommy could put this together. 😉 This look is inspired by Instagram Filters. I know some of you are enjoying these filters, like I am. That’s why I wanted to do a pretty makeup look and also share an easy DIY golden leaf crown, that you can wear for Halloween. As some of you know, I liked creepy Halloween looks before and I’ve been slowly trying to stuff on pretty side rather than the scary side. I have kids around me now and I don’t want to scare them. I also conducted a poll on my Instagram Stories asking friends if they prefer “something scary” or “something pretty” for Halloween looks. Most votes went for something pretty. With that being said, here’s a video on how I created this look. Scroll down for product details and a step-by-step tutorial for the DIY leaf crown.

Products I used:

Foundation (My shade is Honey) 

Concealer Pen (I used Medium 1)

Matte Bronzer (I used No.1)

Eyeshadow / Eyeliner Powder /Highlighter Palette (Love this palette with its removable mirror!)

Eyebrow Pencil (I used a medium shade)

Lengthening Mascara

Lipstick Sheer (I used the shade of Brunch from this Holiday lip set. I also used this lipstick on my cheeks.)

HOW TO MAKE A DIY GOLDEN LEAF CROWN

Materials:

Headband

Artificial Flowers in gold (I got mine from a Dollar Store)

Glue stick and glue gun

Scissors

STEP 1 While waiting for the glue gun to get heat up, remove all the golden flowers and cut off all the petals individually. I only used the petals of these artificial flowers for this crown, and I kept the rest of flowers to use for something else. These petals will be used as our leaves.

STEP 2 Apply hot glue to the center of the headband. Carefully, put two leaves on the top, facing in opposite directions (as the image shows).

STEP 3 Continue to put the leaves on until it covers the headband. You may also add small details like artificial nectar to customize your crown.

That’s it! It’s easy and will complement your pretty makeup look for Halloween parties.
