It’s almost time for Halloween! Do you have a costume planned yet? I loved Uma Thurman’s Poison Ivy costume in the Batman & Robin movie (terrible movie, but a great character!) so I wanted to show you my version.
This Poison Ivy Costume Eye Mask DIY is fast and easy to make. I found this great template while browsing around Pinterest. The original tutorial suggests using foam for the eye mask, but I thought felt was a better choice. Felt is thinner and it’s easier to mold to the face. This mask is comfortable- once it’s on you don’t even feel it!
To apply: eyelash glue

Print out the template. Cut out the eye mask and hold it over your eye to see how it fits. I found that I needed to move the point at the outside of my eye. Tape the mask to the felt. You can make any adjustments now by drawing a new line with a pen. Cut out the mask.
Flip the template over, tape down and cut out the second mask, making any adjustments as necessary for fit.
Cut out the smaller leaves. Tape them down on the felt and cut out. Flip the leaf template over and cut out the other side.
How to apply the mask:
Do one side of the mask at a time.
Apply eye makeup before the mask
Apply eyelash glue to the inner corners of the mask and the top part- do not apply glue to the part that will go over your eyebrows.
Wait until eyelash glue becomes tacky (30 seconds-1 minute) before pressing the mask down on your face.
Hold mask down on your face until glue dries- 1-2 minutes.
