This beautiful new Star Wars heroine has a fantastic look that is popular for many occasions including cosplay and Halloween. If you are looking for some great ideas on how to put together an amazing Star Wars Rey look, you’ve come to the right place. With a few makeup essentials and our step-by-step instructions, you will soon be on your way to creating a look that is perfect for a few of your own intergalactic adventures!

How To Create a Star Wars "Rey" Costume Look.


Follow These Steps to Create this Look

Step One: Apply a foundation to the face using a damp sponge. Choose a color that closely matches your own natural skin tone. For our look, we have used Mehron Cream Foundation in Light Beige. (#DD411)

Step Two: The next step is to apply a neutral shade of eye color to the entire upper eyelid area and up to the brow. To accomplish this, we have used Shadoliner in Honey Tan. (#DD128)

Step Three: Next, using a Gold Shadoliner (#DD133) and a small brush, blend this color onto the lower eyelids. This sparkly gold color will add dimension as well as shimmer to the eyes.

Step Four: Contour the eyes by adding a Taupe Shadoliner (#DD139) into the crease area of the eyes and blending this in well with a small brush.

Step Five: Using a sharpened black eyeliner pencil, (#DE01) apply a thin line to the upper eyelid at the lash line. Repeat this process underneath the lower lashes. Keep the line relatively thin.

Step Six: Apply a cheek powder in bronze (#DD430) under the cheekbones. Apply the same color lightly to the forehead, nose and chin to give the face an all over bronzy glow.

Step Seven: Dust the face lightly with a setting powder using a fluffy brush. (#DD321) This step will blend everything in nicely and set the makeup for a beautiful and long-lasting finish.

Step Eight: Brush on LIP Cream in Natural. (#DD103) This pale pink shade will give your look a gentle, subtle color while bringing out the lips. To add a little shimmer and shine, top the LIP Cream off with Gold Glosstone lip-gloss. (#DD366)

Now it’s time to get into your favorite Star Wars Rey Costume! We have given our model two different looks. We have started our Rey’s wardrobe with the essential Star Wars Rey Costume. (#RU810668) Perfect for her home desert climate, we have also added the Star Wars Rey Eye Mask, (#RU32297) which comes complete with a headscarf as well as a very cool set of goggles. Because Rey doesn’t feel complete without her scavenger’s staff, we have used the Maleficent Staff (#DG71846) to accessorize her amazing look.

Are you interested in the perfect partnership character to compliment a Rey costume? We have paired our feisty gal with Kylo Ren, who was also introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Our Kylo Ren is wearing the Star Wars Kylo Ren Costume (#RU810669) along with a necessary Lightsaber. (#RU32238)

Rey. The mysterious young Star Wars heroine is a true force to be reckoned with. And now she can be at your next Halloween Party!
