This make-up look is for a dead/dying/zombie fairy. Following this post there is an outfit!
For how I produced this look, scroll to the bottom!

My favourite part about creating this look was trying to incorporate the prettiness of fairies with an ugly concept. I loved putting the glitter into the 'wounds', as if I was bleeding glitter.

1. Base: Apply your usual base make up routine, but instead of using your usual highlighter, use a white facepaint and blend. For your contour, use a dark brow, grey or black, or heavily contour using your usual bronzer. I used Backdoor by Urban Decay for this.
Don't forget to heavily contour your nose, temples, and inner corners of your eyes.

2. Eyes: Apply an eye primer. For this look I wanted something sparkly and magical, the MUA Merged Trios are perfect!
I applied a purple shade all over my lid, blending it out to create a smoky look. I then went in with a black/golden shade to my crease and upper lash line. I then went in with a pencil liner to create a wing. 

On the lower lash line, I used the same shade as I used to contour with, and brought this down further than usual, to make it a little more messy. I then put the red eyeliner on my waterline and blended this with the brown shade. I did this three times to create intensity.

Apply your usual mascara. 

3. Lips: Using a matte purple lipgloss/stick, place the colour on the centre of the lips and blend out - this creates a dehydrated look.

4. Blood and Glitter: Get creative!
I used lipbalm where I wanted the wounds on my face, then applied the powder over the top, making the blood into a paste before adding water via a pipette.
I made wounds on the temples, where there was contouring, the corners of my mouth, my right eye, left cheek, and chin.
Finally, I added glitter to the wounds and the blood.
