Superheroes and comic book stars may be go-to Halloween costumes for any sci-fi fan, but the recent release of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” means Gamora and the gang will be in especially high demand this October. Make sure your Gamora look is spot-on come Halloween with this makeup tutorial from Caitlin Davis, an Archdale, North Carolina–based makeup artist with the haunted house attraction Kersey Valley Spookywoods.
Things You’ll Need
Green and silver body paint
Black, red, and purple eye shadow
Dark green eyeliner
Clear lip gloss
Prep Your Skin
Dampen your face-painting sponge and then dip it in green paint. Sponge green paint over your entire face, neck and arms.
Dip your eyeliner brush into silver body paint while the green paint dries. With the silver, trace slightly jagged lines across the cheekbones, above the inner corners of your eyebrows, and vertically above the middle arch of each eyebrow. Let paint dry.
Add Eye Makeup
Apply red eye shadow, using the crease brush, to the outer corner of each eye, extending outward and upward to the temple.
Apply black eye shadow with a crease brush to the outer corner of each eye in an arched, half “C” shape. Blend lightly.
Line each lid and waterline with black eyeliner.
Create an exaggerated arch for each eyebrow with silver paint and an eyeliner brush.
Dip an angled brush lightly into the black eye shadow, making sure to tap off excess shadow. Blend black eye shadow underneath the cheekbones, along the sides of the nose and at the hollow of your temple.
