We’ve gathered this list of the best mushroom and fairy makeup tutorials to help you make your mushroom cosplay a reality! Most of these looks can be replicated using a bright eyeshadow palette, white eyeliner, and elf ears, while some have added sparkles, glitter, and giant mushroom hats.

Whether you’re a makeup newbie or a cosplay pro, there’s a DIY mushroom makeup look in this list for you.
