Makeup Tutorial: Wonder Woman Inspired

Late one night I had a burst of energy to do my makeup. No place to go - just wanted to try something new. So I felt inspired to use themes from superheroes. I decided to start with Wonder Woman!
This is a simple tutorial on how to create a look based on Wonder Woman's colors. 
I plan to do more makeup looks inspired by other superheroes and comic books, too!


For the eyes I used the edge of a kleenex to make the blue a straight wing. Then I added the red and finally the gold. After that I went back with white eyeshadow to blend the edges of those 3 main colors. Add some eyeliner, mascara, and glitter and you're done!

Since I did this randomly at night I didn't fix up my hair. But to channel Wonder Woman try using rollers or a large barrel curling iron to get a voluminous look.

For my lips I used a reddish gloss as a base. Then I lined them with my red eyeshadow using a skinny brush and dabbed on gold eyeshadow in the center with my a finger. The eyeshadows stick to the gloss great.. just be sure to blend well.

Here's a peek at what I used. The gold, blue, and white shadows were by Kat Von D and the red was MAC's loose pigment. The gloss was by Urban Decay and the glitter liner is Sephora brand. I did my skin with my basic routine found in this tutorial except I added more gold to my cheeks here.

I would love to spend more time recreating this look again. And get proper photos, too. But I was pleased with my first attempt at it!

Has a superhero ever inspired your makeup or outfit?
Who would you like me to make a tutorial for next?

  2. It looks really good.
    Often superheros and movie characters inspired me. Maybe next time, you make a Red Sonja or Wolverine inspired make up.
