Night Elf





Introduction: Night Elf

About: Find me on and

I used to play wow all the time, I played a Blood elf buuuuuuuuuuut that was less interesting so I did the night elf. =P

Step 1: Purple Face

Using wolfe effects paint pallet I painted my face purple, then I got into my Urban Decay electric pallet and contoured my nose and my cupids bow.

Step 2: Markings

For the markings (or tattoo) I used dark purple form my Ben Nye pallet and just slowly worked around both eyes trying my hardest to keep them as even as I could.

Step 3: Black

Getting a VERY little amount of black I went ahead and added that around the markings to bring them out a little more.

Step 4: Lips

I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in rust to fill in my lips then I got matte black eye shadow and added that to the outer corner of my lips.

Step 5: Head Piece

For the head piece I used silver from Mehron metallic pallet and added a moon between my eyebrows and used tiny dots for the chain. Then I use black matte eye shadow to shade around it, and be sure to keep the shadow a little away from the silver so it looks lifted.

Step 6: Eyes

Filled in the lid of my eyes in white from wolfe effects.

Step 7: Hair

Using a teal body paint from wolfe effects I'm putting that into my hair.

Step 8: Body

Cover the body in that same purple.

Step 9: Brows

I used foam with the sticky back and cut it to the shape I wanted and placed it where I wanted.

    I love that you used your eyelids as the eyes of the look when they're closed. Very clever and effective :)

    Hahaha, thank you. =D

    Wow! :O I've been gaping with wonder at several of your work in succession, and I must say you must have a very steady hand and a great eye for detail. I love how you shade to such a degree of perfection that the result looks 3d and life-like. Such talent, much kudos! :)

    Aww that's so nice of you! Thank you so much!

    thank you thank you! =)

    Not sure what is more amazing: the fantastic final result, or the fact that you are able to paint that work of art in your own face! You must have a magic mirror! Awesome!

    Aww thank you so much! it's actually easier for me to paint my own face, I guess because I do it so much. XP

    I guess this pretty much explains it! The contouring on your nose and cupid's bow was perfect, pinpoint. I also love how the teal goes great with the purple and the way that you made the tattoo markings around the eyes. Nice and bold, adds that perfect amount of black to bring out the factor! I subscribed to your feed, and would love to see more of your fantastic make-up ideas. Of course, I am a face painter myself and I have been teaching myself for over 10 years!
