Makeup to Be Cleopatra for Halloween
Are you passionate about ancient Egypt, stories and legends about the pharaohs or do you simply find Cleopatra’s make-up very aesthetic and feminine? Why not in this case you distinguish yourself from your friends for Halloween by choosing to wear a Cleopatra disguise, this illustrious woman belonging to the Lagid dynasty who was Queen of Egypt at only 19 years old, at the time of her father’s death, King Ptolemy XII. This woman of determined and ambitious power for her country, reigned with an iron hand in a velvet glove for 21 years, from -51 to -30 BC. His personality, beauty and charm have inspired many writers and directors. The most famous film of course is the one directed in 1963 by Joseph L. Mankiewicz in which the queen of the Nile is played by Elizabeth Taylor. It is the film that broke all records at the time, both for its staggering budget and also for its duration, more than 4 hours.
Before you think about make-up, you will obviously have to find the right outfit. Also, if you don’t want to invest in a disguise or put your hand to the hand to make it, we recommend that you buy a simple white dress or sleeveless cream that you choose according to your taste and the effect you want to give your character, whether sexy with a large neckline and split at the thigh or more classic and austere. You can then add a few accessories such as large gold bracelets as well as arm bands that twist around it or a ornament. Then you will have to fix your hair, because they define Cleopatra the most physically, with her square cut reaching the level of the shoulders and her fringe on the front coming down almost at the level of the eyebrows. If you don’t want to cut your hair or its length doesn’t lend itself to this cut, rent a wig.
To sublimate your eyes, to have a star look, we also suggest you to wear coloured lenses. The ones we offer on our shop “Solution-Lentilles. com” are certainly the safest ones on the market. You will have the choice between having beautiful blue gray or azure eyes, emerald green, golden yellow, hazelnut or have huge eyes thanks to the “Circle lens” models very trendy in the fashion and show business world.
To make up your makeup for Cleopatra special Halloween it’s pretty simple after all. Everything happens around the eyes and you can let your imagination run wild or you can get inspired by the photos on this page. So you can start by putting mascara on your eyelashes or applying false eyelashes. Then, using a black pencil or eyeliner, you will draw a line from the inner corner of the eye, following the base of the lashes and going to the half of the temple. The line should be thicker on the outside corner than on the inside. Then, at the level of the moving eyelid and the area between the eyebrows and the eyebrows, you will apply white fat blush and over the golden or blue fat blush according to the desired effect. Then you’ll redesign and sharpen your eyebrows. We wish you a happy Halloween!
