Wonder Woman UV Reactive Makeup Look | SFX Tutorial, Pt. 25

Superheroes will always be at the top of the list of favorite SFX looks, especially during the Halloween season! However, you can always kick it up a notch with extra touches like UV Reactive makeup! We worked with makeup artist Kelly Tull and Lei V. Agency to create a Wonder Woman makeup tutorial that incorporates products you may already have in your collection plus a few of our SFX favorites.


Products Mentioned

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Foundation

Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty Eyeshadow Palette

ProAiir Hybrid Fluorescent UV Colors Kit

Mehron Paradise Makeup AQ 30-Well Palette

Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Buff

Inglot Makeup Fixer Spray

Since this look features a painted-on headband and the iconic Wonder Woman symbol across the neckline, go ahead and apply your everyday face makeup as you normally would! To follow the exact steps Kelly used, follow the routine below.

Start with a light misting of Inglot Makeup Fixer Spray and apply Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Foundation for medium to full coverage. Use your favorite contour product, blush, and concealer before setting the look with Ben Nye Luxury Powder. This ultra-finely milled powder will make your complexion look airbrushed while keeping oiliness at bay. Fill in your brows and create a soft smokey eye using the Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty palette, and apply your favorite lip color.


Start sketching out the headband with a nude makeup pencil before painting it with various shades of yellow from the Mehron Paradise Makeup AQ Palette. Once the makeup has dried, use a fine liner brush to outline the headband with black. Use the Melt Cosmetics palette to shade to add depth and shadows along the outer edges of the headband.


Outline the Wonder Woman symbol along the center of your neckline and upper chest and begin painting outside of the outline using the ProAiir Hybrid Fluorescent UV Reactive Paints. To blend different colors together, give the makeup a quick spritz of the Inglot Makeup Fixer and dab a makeup sponge where the colors meet to create a gradient. Fill in the Wonder Woman symbol with the Mehron Paradise Makeup AQ and allow it to dry.

Next, it's time to add a bit of texture and fun to the Wonder Woman symbol! Using a splatter brush or a toothbrush, use the spattering technique to add splashes of color. Dip the bristles into the ProAiir Hybrid Fluorescent UV Reactive Paint colors of your choice, and run your finger across the bristles (with the bristles facing your body) to allow speckles of paint to enhance your look. If you want to leave the symbol itself free of any paint splatter, hold a piece of paper over the design while performing this technique.

Outline the inner part of the Wonder Woman symbol with a thin line of UV reactive paint to make it pop! Repeat this process for the headband, and viola!
