How to make Pikachu makeup: step by step photo tutorial

You will be surprised, but creating a spectacular make-up with Pikachu ears instead of the usual arrows is not so difficult.

  1. 1

    Apply Urban Decay's Stay Naked Foundation with a damp beauty sponge.

    You don't need to cover your whole face with yellow in this makeup, so choose the shade of foundation you are used to.

  2. 2

    Hide dark circles under your eyes with concealer. To achieve a refreshing effect, choose a concealer half a tone lighter than foundation.

  3. 3

    Set cream textures with powder. Since makeup needs to be bright, it is better to choose a mattifying powder to avoid excessive shine.

  4. 4

    Maybelline New York Fit Me blush not on the center of the apples of the cheeks, but on their upper part.

    This is how Asian style makeup is done. The result is a more perky and fresh look.

  5. 5

    Shape your brows by filling in the gaps with pencil or lipstick. For such a make-up, both well-defined eyebrows and fluffy ones are suitable.

  6. 6

    Spread bright yellow eyeshadow from NYX Professional Makeup's Ultimate Shadow Palette Brights 04 all over your lid.

    Blend them above the crease. Before applying the shadows, do not forget to use a base that enhances their durability and brightness.

  7. 7

    Use light brown shadows to blend the yellow border. At the same time, do not bring it to the outer corner to leave a pure yellow color for the future Pikachu ear.

  8. 8

    Draw the main part of the arrow along the lash line.

  9. 9

    Instead of the usual thin tail of the arrow, create a loop. As with creating a regular arrow, it is important to look straight ahead at this point so that the arrows are symmetrical.

  10. 10

    Fill in the corner with eyeliner to make it look like Pikachu's ear.

  11. 11

    Just above the crease of the eyelid, you can add a few separate strokes. This will define the contour and make the makeup more dynamic.

  12. 12

    Red cheeks are another distinctive feature of the Pokemon Pikachu. For a bold and extravagant make-up, draw red dots on the lower eyelid with bright shadows or long-lasting lipstick. To make the makeup more calm, you can more intensely emphasize the “apples” of the cheeks with blush, and the lower eyelid with the usual brown shade of shadows.

  13. 13

    In such a bright look, it is important that there are no gaps between the eyelashes, otherwise the makeup will look unfinished. Therefore, first draw the mucous membrane of the upper eyelid with black kayal and only after that apply mascara. It remains only to make up the lips.

Bright and cute makeup is ready!
