Halloween is just around the corner — and if you’re still struggling to figure out a creative costume that doesn’t involve dressing up as a witch or a cat or Kylie Jenner, we feel you. Which is why we enlisted Sephora PRO Makeup Artist Dina Nikocevic to teach us how to create an out-of-this-world look, literally, with galaxy-inspired makeup for our “How It’s Done” video series. Watch it above and get your highlighters ready.
To set the outer-space base, Nikocevic first applies royal blue cream makeup (she’s using the dark blue from Make Up For Ever’s 12 Flash Cream Color Case) to the forehead, jawline and down the neck on opposite sides. Then, she dabs spots of white cream on top of the blue, blending the two together to give a night sky-like look. Nikocevic brightens up the look by going back in with bright blue powder eye shadow on random areas, including one eyelid.
Next, it’s time for the shimmer. Nikocevic uses the blue shade in Urban Decay’s Moondust Palette all over the eyes and forehead, and then draws on stars using a white eyeliner pen. To finish off the look, she applies a bright berry lip, a few swipes of mascara, and some extra highlighter on the cheekbones for a little extra shimmer.
