Snapchat filters are so fun—millions of iPhone-wielding millennials will tell you that much. While I've never been one to turn down the golden goddess option (we have the full tutorial to get it IRL) or the majestic "pretty" filter, I've become quite partial to the cute-as-can-be deer. Once you've swiped over to it, you'll find killer winged eyeliner, huge doe-eyes, and a hilarious squeaky voice to boot. Intrigued? I was, too.
Thankfully, Halloween is coming up, and it was the perfect excuse to transform my usually bare visage into the Snapchat filter of my dreams. We worked with the absolutely genius Lijha Stewart, Make Up For Ever's director of artistry and education to make that dream a reality. Want to see how we pulled it off in less than 15 minutes? Keep scrolling.
To block out the brows, Stewart used a full-coverage concealer. Apply the formula to a brow spoolie and brush down the opposite direction of your hair growth. Then, brush up to arrange the eyebrows and lightly dab over the top with a Beautyblender ($20). Afterward, you get a bleach-brow effect without any of the chemicals or wait time.
Stewart blended a mix of yellow, brown, and peach and applied the mask with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Later, she used the white and black from the same palette to create the nose.
Start with a traditional cat eye and (if you're really going for it) a strip of false lashes. Then, use a cream eye shadow to line through the crease and out passed your eyebrow. Steward explains this is called a "double-wing crease."
