Halloween Makeup Series: Woodland Deer

Flower crown optional.

Our animal costume makeup series continues with this incredible woodland deer Halloween makeup. This tutorial is all about the contouring. The key is to shade darkest where you already have natural shadows around your face and under your check bones. The more prominent you make your nose and eyes, the better. Now all you need is Thumper and Flower!
