The costumes in “Birds of Prey” weren’t the only things that stood out to me. I also couldn’t stop looking at the characters’ makeup.
“Suicide Squad” already gave us a glimpse of Harley Quinn’s go-to makeup, which is the standard pale face, heavily lined eyes and red lipstick. Her look has been copied several times at Halloween parties and cosplay conventions. But if you want to know how you can inject the Birds of Prey’s looks on a daily basis, check out our shopping list below.
Harley Quinn: Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick in Elson
As mentioned, Harley is known for her bright red lipstick. It’s important to find a product that can withstand physical activities and doesn’t fade after eating an egg sandwich. Pat McGrath’s MatteTrance Lipstick in Elson will do the job perfectly since it’s a nourishing matte lipstick and it can get you a bright red lip in just one swipe.
Available on Sephora PH.
Black Canary: Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10-Pan Palette
Before becoming a member of Birds of Prey, Black Canary was a club singer. (You can listen to her rendition of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” here.) In one of her performances, she wore a gold dress and had on a smoky eye look with a touch of inner corner highlight. You can achieve this look with Wet N Wild’s eyeshadow palette in Nude Awakening.
Available at SM Aura Premier.
Huntress: Benefit BADGal BANG! 24 Hour Eye Pencil
Huntress keeps her makeup very minimal, except for her eyes which have heavy liner on the lids. If you want the same effect, try Benefit’s BADGal BANG! Eyeliner. It’s waterproof and has 24-hour lasting power, which is perfect for Huntress who’s going after gang members 24/7.
Available at Greenbelt 5.
Cassandra Cain: Essie Nail Polish in Blue Rhapsody
Cassandra Cain didn’t have any makeup on but Harley did give her a manicure while chilling on the couch. Although there weren’t a lot of close-up shots of Cassandra’s nails, the color looked like a cross between metallic blue and gray. Essie’s Blue Rhapsody nail polish is the closest shade we found.
Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
