Tutorial: Coraline Inspired Makeup Look

And I’m back with another makeup tutorial. Today we’re doing a bit more cosplay-style, inspired by one of my favourite animated movies: Coraline. It’s a really trippy movie, but it’s just amazing. Today I’m doing my own take on the main character Coraline. Let’s get into it!

We’ll start with the basics. After applying a face primer, I applied my standard foundation and concealer (products listed below this article).

After blending everything, I set my face with my favourite compact powder. Then I did my eyebrows like I usually do. This tutorial is sooo exciting, haha! I also contoured my face.

Now we’re onto the more ‘specific’ part of the tutorial: the eyes. I applied a kind of burned orange/brown shade in my crease, blending it outwards. Then I deepened my crease and both corners with a bit darker brown shade. I tried to keep the shades a bit light, though.

I applied the same lighter brown shade along my lower lashline. To finish off the kind of halo-look, I applied a metallic brown/copper shade to the middle of my eyelid.

To make my face look a bit more like coralines face, I tried making fake freckles using a brown eyepencil.

We all know the button theme of the movie, so I thought it would be fun to do something different with that. So instead of putting buttons over my eyes, I put a ton of buttons on my face. I found a bunch of black buttons and I glued them to my skin using liquid latex. You could also use lash glue for this. I then applied some blush and extra highlighter.

To finish this cosplay-look, I added fake lashes and a nude lipstick. And of course I had to put on a blue wig and my yellow raincoat.

I’ve been wanting to do a look like this for a while, and I’m really happy I finally did. I think it turned out great! I like putting my own twist on looks and doing something different from the crowd, it just doesn’t always work out haha. But today I think I did a decent job.

I hope you enjoyed this post and may have gotten some inspiration from it. Let me know if you have any characters you want me to do inspired makeup from. I want to thank you for reading and I’ll see you next time!
