Barrell is an interesting character in terms of his color scheme, which I have seen represented using either green or blue. His hair is green in the movie, which is the color I lean towards as a primary color but I do believe his face has a slightly blue tint?

Either way you perceive his colors, I decided to use both in this take on the makeup.

Barrell Inspired Makeup Tutorial

You will need:

  • Pale foundation (one or two shades lighter than your usual color)
  • Translucent setting powder
  • Green eyeliner
  • Black Eyeliner
  • Bright blue eye shadow
  • Green eye shadow
  • Natural pink lipstick

Instructions:

1. Start by applying a pale foundation that is a few shades lighter than your usual makeup. I used my winter foundation. You can add blush to the look if you prefer.

2. Heavily outline your eyes using the green eye liner, making a thick cat eye. For me, this wasn’t very defined, so I went over this adding a thin black line of eye liner over it (you can still see the thicker line of green) and went up slightly through the cat eye.

3. Cover your lid in green shadow, and fill in your brow with the green as well. Add a faint hint of the green shadow underneath your eye, extending towards the cat eye.

4. From the edge of the brow, around the cat eye all the way towards the temple and blending under the eye with the green, add the bright blue powder.

5. Finish with mascara and a light natural pink lipstick. I styled my hair with pigtails to accentuate the whimsical nature with the lollipop.

Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Anybody else struggle this time of year? I’m looking at these lovely sunbeams from my Alice In Wonderland shoot this summer to bring some sunshine to my day. I’ll be doing just fine, then be lying on the couch trying to feel like I can breathe again. I know it is ok, and these increased symptoms will pass, but it’s certainly not fun, especially when I have projects and ideas id like to tackle, but can’t get past this paralyzing anxiety. What do you guys use to help with SADD? #SADD #anxiety #ptsd #seasonaldepression  #winteristheworst #whydoilivehere
  • Halfway done! Still a ton to do, and I’ve learned ALOT already, like how not to sew in an invisible zipper, that I need a seam ripper, and need to invest in real fabric shears. But it’s actually coming together! Having never used a pattern before, I admit I looked at the pile of paper with some skepticism. Also, it kind of matches my couch. 😂 #cosplay #sewing #mccallspatterns #mccalls #mccallscosplay #spacesuit #plussizecosplay
  • Hanging out with mystic while I tackle my next sewing project. I like to think her interest is in hanging out with me, but there is a high chance she just wants the Fritos I’ve been munching... #cosplay #cosplaydog #sewing #mccallspatterns #cosplaymccalls #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram
  • Bull in boots! It was enough of a battle to get her into them, and she refuses to move anywhere wearing them! 😂😂😂 I was so looking forward to a little dance, but so far she is just laying there looking helpless. Maybe if I get out the peanut butter? #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #doginboots #notcoolmom
  • I decided to spring for new ornaments this year and went from hyper colorful to classic beauty with a Gryffindor Christmas tree, complete with Hedwig ornaments! No DIY here (except the jingle bell snitch) just a very content Gryffindor snuggling on the couch enjoying the lights and a glass of wine. #twomoresleeps #harrypotterchristmas #gryffindor #housepride
  • New Christmas gift to myself... the long curly in emerald green from @rockstarwigs ! I’m hoping my ideas for some holiday makeup looks can inspire me to get back at it now that I can finally use my right arm! Any guesses or requests? #merrychristmastome #cosplaychristmas #rockstarwigs
