@sammyjosbeautycase has created a clever wood effect using makeup paired with striking white features and a pair of white coloured contact lenses to complete her Nutcracker costume girl. Whether you are wearing a store-bought costume or have made your own, adding detailed SFX makeup and coloured contact lenses to your ensemble is the perfect way to upgrade your look and is also great for helping you to stand out if you are performing as The Nutcracker.
Similarly, @makeupbycole has created a wooden SFX element to her makeup but has paired it with a full torso body paint to create the Nutcracker’s iconic soldier costume. Paired with exaggerated features such as vibrant blue eyes from our Blue Super Sky Lenses, this Nutcracker costume looks ready for any Christmas dress up party or performance. If you are heading out in your Nutcracker costume then all you will need is a toy soldier costume to complete your fancy dress.
@van_kelsing_ has created a makeup mini series out of Nutcracker characters costume. This included the title character painted with bright pink cheeks and large mouth. Her inspiration came from the Nutcracker ballet makeup. She has completed the costume with the Green Witches Eye Coloured Contacts for a bright festive green eye colour.
In her next Nutcracker character makeup, she has created the evil Mouse King. This detailed face paint would be perfect for the stage. In this design, @van_kelsing_ has added the Red Blind Coloured Contact Lenses which do restrict vision so if you are looking for something that you can wear to perform in or for going out to an event, then make sure to browse the other lenses in our Red Coloured Contacts collection. Check out her Mouse King Nutcracker makeup tutorial to see how she created this cool costume.
In previous years, our affiliates have tried out female nutcracker makeup. @ladyparadoxx’s version of the Nutcracker is one of our favourites. The creepy spiral eyes make this Nutcracker seem a little spooky! Re-create this look using the White Rinnegan Ring Coloured Contact Lenses or try out Lady Paradoxx’s makeup with a pair of bright green or blue coloured contacts.
@giselkauffman took on two of the Nutcracker characters in this makeup challenge. This incredible Mouse King makeup can be paired with a range of coloured contact lenses including black, werewolf, or red eyes. Add some mouse ears, a crown, and paint your face to complete your Mouse King look.
She also beautifully painted herself as Clara using a pair of natural coloured contact lenses to enhance her eyes and completely painting on Clara’s dress. If you are looking for a last minute Christmas character fancy dress idea or would like a theme for group costumes, then Clara is an easy character to create using items you already own.
