Once Upon a Time Tutorials: Zelena

One comment


I wanted to attempt another ‘villain’ from Once Upon a Time before moving onto the Heroes from the series. She wasn’t one of my original picks, but I love Zelena in the series and thought that I should include her.

I wasn’t up for painting my entire body green, so I improvised a little.



For foundation I used my Dior Airflash Foundation, buffing a light layer of this onto my face. I used the Bare Minerals Bareskin Concealer on any areas that needed a tad more coverage. Everything was set into place using the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Powder.

To contour, I drew a line under my cheek bones and up my temples using the Clinique Chubby Stick Bronzer. To bronze up my face even further I buffed the Dior Air Nude Glow Powder onto my cheeks and up onto my forehead. To give my cheeks a bit more colour, I took the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love hangover and swept this across my cheek bones.

Finally, to highlight I took Becca’s Champagne Pop Shimmering Face Perfector and gave a quick swipe of this over the tops of my cheek bones.



I wanted the main focus of this look to be the eyes, so I filled in my eyebrows quite heavily using the Bare Mineral’s Brow Definer Pencil and Benefit’s Brow Zings. Together these gave rather full and thick looking brows.

On the eyelid, I took the darker matte green from the L’Oreal Glam Palette and packed this onto the lid and around the lower lash line. I blended out the edges using a fluffy shadow brush.

On top of the shadow I took Stila’s Metalic Emerland Pigment and packed this over the top quite thickly. Again, I blended out the harsh edges. I took Metalic Jade from the same collection along my lower lash line.

To highlight the brow bone I took the pearl shade from the L’Oreal Glam palette, sweeping this lightly under my brows. I also patted a small amount on the inner corner of my eye too.

For mascara, I using my Nars Audacious Mascara.



When Zelena is in her full green look, she has red lipstick. So I used my Nars Undercover Lip Cover in Do Not Disturb, filling in my lips quite thickly with the colour.


And that is my Zelena inspired look. I will be posting my Emma tutorial tomorrow.

Have a nice day guys!
