Make-up and face-detail/make-up ideas?

I am dressing as a forest nymph for a creative presentation and i need some make-up/design ideas for my eyes and my face. Any suggestions? Oh, and hair ideas will help also if possible :)

When I hear "forest" I generally think more earthly tones. I think it would depend on your costume all together to decide the colors. If it were me, I would go with a green.
I would use a shimmery white in the corners of my eyes, then blend it in with a light green fading out to a darker green. To add more depth to your eyes, take a little black and blend it in the crease and a little on your outer v and blend it with the green, but don't blend all the color out. I think shimmer colors also will draw more attention to the eye, and seem more 'magical'.
For your waterline, instead of going with a black, I'd use a white or even a green eyeliner so you don't draw too much of a contrast in colors away from the top of the eye. I would also add a little wing outside of your eye. Instead of starting out at your inner corner with the eyeliner ( Liquid if possible for smoother lines), start in the middle close to your lashes and eventually getting bigger as you go out. Extend the wing, and even a little swirl would be cute.
Take some of the shimmery white eyeshadow and dust it along the end of the wing, and use your eyeliner to create little dots or symbols. False lashes would be very pretty for this, some with some glitter if possible.
Next, I'd keep it simple on the cheeks and lips...cheeks I would use a soft pink color, and the lips as well. Highlighting the bridge of your nose and on the side of your face could also bring light into your face, which I think would be cute too :)
Overall, just have fun with it. I think it sounds like a cool project to do c: I hope you have fun dressing up and update me on the look you go with :D

i think it's gonna be all about the eyes! try colorful eye makeup, like in the pic below. you can add some falsies for more drama. also, it would be nice to see some glitter on your face too. dust highlighter over your cheekbones and your T-zone. go neutral on the lips.

as for hair, put it up in a messy updo with some curls cascading down framing your face.

Earth tones would be awesome! I think a nude lip, light peach blush, and different shades of greens and browns would make an awesome smokey eye. Or wing out your liner and do like green leaves or vines in the corners of the eyes. For hair something natural looking. Maybe a messy updo with a cute green ribbon or a few fake leaves. Or a messy side braid with a flower behind your ear. Bedhead waves would look awesome too. Google vines, nymphs, flowers and random things to find patterns or details that you'd like to copy. Image search is awesome. lol. Hope this helps. :)
