Hello, beautiful creatures! I’m delighted to share my Goddess Persephone Makeup Cosplay Tutorial with you. My friends are having a Mount Olympus Gods and Goddesses-themed party this year for Halloween, so I decided to be the Goddess Persephone. I love Lore Olympus but did not feel like painting my entire self pink. I opted for my unique take on Persephone, focused on a cool-toned pomegranate red hue paired with black.
I purchased everything because I love indie brands.

Creating the Goddess Persephone Tutorial
I originally filmed this tutorial yesterday after moving my office around, updating my lighting, and switching to a different camera lens. I tried to incorporate natural light as much as possible, but it worked against me yesterday as the sun set while I was filming. Only my outdoor footage was good, and my indoor was terrible. I put my hair in a high ponytail for this but did not have time to curl it.
I refilmed my Goddess Persephone Makeup Cosplay Tutorial today after I worked out and had breakfast. I love how it turned out!
I asked on Instagram whether I should wear my hair in a high ponytail with curls or a puffy braid, and I received an even split on responses, so today, I put my hair into a high ponytail with a braid. I’ll try the high ponytail with curls if the weather stays cool on Saturday.
I’m going to have to straighten out the tips of the crown.
Final Persephone Makeup Cosplay Tutorial Thoughts
Dave loves my Persephone cosplay; he is going to the party as Hades. His costume is more casual. I painted his nails with Madam Glam Perfect Black gel polish and added glow-in-the-dark accent flames. I love the photo above, with Nyx glaring from behind my shoulder. She’s obviously going to be one of our hellhounds!

Beautiful look. The pictures are amazing!
Thank you so much Liz!
Tessa Castro says
It’s a really beautiful costume. You put a lot of time & thought into everything & it shows. You always such great ideas! I’m looking forward to watching the video…and Nyx with glowing red eyes…Yes! Blessed Be🖤💜❤🌙
Thank you so much Tessa! The only other thing I would have liked to have added would have been a pomegranate half prop.
That pomegranate red is a great color for you.
Love the poodle hellhound!
Thank you so much! I love cool-toned reds. And Nyx does make a great hellhound. I didn’t even know she was in the shot until after I looked at the camera screen. She snuck in and I’m here for it! I should make a version where her eyes are glowing red.
