Step-by-Step Instructions for Creating the Look of Princess Leia:

Step One:  Begin your makeup look with a clean and dry face. Princess Leia has very fair skin, so for our look we have chosen to use a lighter foundation, Celebre Lt. Beige Blush. (#DD398) For best results, we recommend that you match your foundation to your natural skin tone as closely as possible. Using a damp sponge, blend a light layer of foundation over your entire face.

How to Create a Princess Leia Costume Look

Step Two:  Next apply EYE Cream in Creamy beige (#DD342) to the entire eyelid area as a base color. Blend this color in well with a small brush or a sponge tip applicator.

Step Three:  The next step is to blend Celebre Shadoliner in Gold (#DD133) onto the eyelids only. The gold tone will add a little bit of subtle shimmer to the eyes.

Step Four:  To contour the eye area, apply Shadow Liner in Slate Grey (#DD125) into the crease of the eye above the eyelid. Blend this color in gently with a brush or sponge tip applicator for a natural look.

Step Five:  Using a very skinny brush, line the eyes along the upper lash line with EYE Cream in Black. (#DD107) Next, line under the lower eyelashes with the same skinny brush and the black eye color. Then using Celebre Shadoliner in Chestnut Brown, pencil in the eyebrows using short, feathery strokes. (#DD343)

Step Six:  For a more dramatic eye look, apply false eyelashes with eyelash glue along the upper lash line. (#EA80)

Step Seven:  To contour the face, we have used a contouring blush. (#DD432) Blend this color in on any areas of the face you wish to recede and contour a little bit. We have gently brushed this color under the cheekbones, along the sides of the nose and at the hairline and sides of the face.

Step Eight:  To highlight the cheeks, apply a lovely coral shade of powder blush along the apples of the cheeks. (#DD426)

Step Nine:  Apply a brownish orange LIP cream to the lips, using a brush. Blot the color with a tissue for extra staying power. We have used Mehron's Lip Cream in Zinnia. (#DD103)

Step Ten:  Gently powder the entire face with a setting powder to prevent the makeup from smudging. (#DD321)

Now it's time to get dressed in your favorite Princess Leia costume look. You will find several choices here at Halloween Express! Our Princess Leia is dressed in the traditional Princess Leia Costume. (#RU56113) For protection, Princess Leia is carrying her handy Princess Leia Blaster. (#RU36413)
