How to do Mary Poppins make-up
Start by applying your usual foundation and set it with a loose powder.
Next, fill in your eyebrows using a brown powder and apply brown eyeshadow to the corners of your eyes.
Next, use black face paint and a thin brush (or your usual eyeliner) to draw a thin line close to your lash line.
Apply pink blusher to your cheeks and blend it with a clean brush.
Next, mix three face paints to get the perfect lip colour or apply pink lipstick.
Paint your lips.
Once all your make-up is done, apply some false eyelashes.
Now to get the perfect Mary Poppins hairstyle! Section the front piece of your hair, then twist it towards the back of your head and secure it in place with a hair pin.
Repeat this process on the other side of your head with a bigger section of hair.
Then clip the rest of your hair back and your Mary Poppins look is practically finished!
Last but not least, put on a Mary Poppins costume like this to complete the look!
