COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 3, 2013, 11:20 PM
Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all! :heart:

I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!

I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^  That said, hope you enjoy! :heart: *chu*







Any questions please feel free to ask!

It's like a thin tape, used as a dressing~ The brand name of the one I use is 'micropore'~ I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to everyone though, it might not work for everyone ;A;

My favourite brand is Super Pinky atm, I buy them from honeycolor mainly ^^

Oh thank you so much for this! I'm hoping to cosplay a couple of male characters and whenever I tried out makeup for those cosplays, they always came out too feminine looking for my taste. This tutorial is super helpful! I also always had trouble with concealing my brows because they are so thick and dark. Medical tape and concealer is something I never thought of using, haha!
I can't wait to give this a try! Thanks again! Also, have a nice day if it's daytime where you are!

Oh my god SO beautiful! This helps so much!

Medical tape and concealer to cover your eyebrows?? That's something I never thought of o-o Does it work well? Because of the thickness of my eyebrows, I'm running out of methods ^^;

it works for me..? but I shape my natural brows quite thin~ you'd probably have to do the same to be able to change them for cosplay ^_^

depends how complicated the character's look is, basic like this is about 30 mins? Can be up to 45mins-1hr if doing extreme makeup ^_^

Oooh , wow, that's so cool * o *
//has no idea how to work with make up.
And I have a question. What do you mean when you " spray style in to place" ? Do you simply set your style and then spray it with hairspray or ?

with a simple wig like that, yeah - this wasn't meant to be a wig-styling tutorial, hence not much detail ^^; I'm sure there are heaps of good tutorial on in-depth wig styling out there!

Ooohh , I see. Just wondering, because seeing all the cosplays you do, I was thinking " She really only styles with hairspray ? " Haha ~
