Halloween Makeup Tutorial: How to Wear the Deer Snapchat Filter IRL

Not only has Snapchat taken over social media, but it’s also taken over the runways. During New York Fashion Week, models working the Desigual runway sported some of the most popular Snapchat filters IRL (!). From the puppy dog to the bumblebee, they gave me some serious inspiration with Halloween just around the corner.

I’m not sure if it’s the captivating eyes or the heart-shaped nose, but the deer filter has always been a favourite of mine, and after a few (OK, maybe a ton) of attempts, I was able to bring this filter to life. Here’s how to master the look.

For the Face

Using NYX concealer, I drew an arc from one eyebrow to the other. Colouring in the area below, I worked my way down my nose and stopped just past the halfway mark. I then used a beauty blender to blend the colour and soften the lines.

I used NYX’s retractable white eyeliner to colour in the bottom of my nose and blended it in with a small brush.

My favourite part was next: drawing a tiny heart on the tip of my nose with black eyeliner.

To finish up the face, I used the same white liner to draw the spots on my forehead, trying to keep it symmetrical.

For the Eyes

Using Quo Art of Lining Brush in black, I lined my top lash line and created a double winged line by drawing the outer line upwards.

I drew a thicker line in my crease and worked my way outwards, again making two wings upwards.

Since this filter is all about big, enDEERing eyes, I lined my waterline, inner corner and bottom lash line with the white liner to make my eyes look larger. I then applied L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara along with Quo’s Flirty Half Lash set in #817.

To finish up, I touched up my cheeks with a bit of blush and swiped on Elizabeth Arden Rose Petal Matte Lipstick.

And there you have it! An absolutely aDOErable look, perfect for Halloween, or anytime that you just can’t get enough of that filter!
