What would be recommended make-up if I'm playing Aerith? She looks so gentle (i guess i can describe it that way) but i mean also in the way her face complexion is...ne...im aveerage color. not tan but not pale white either o0 Eh..I dont have a pic really, but what are recommendations for Aerith looks?

Well, probably wouldnt wanna overload on makeup, maybe go for a "naturaly-unatural" look? Extra blush in the right spots can make you look sweeter...mm...I dunno if that really answered the question, but good luck ^^;

I agree with Dewy. Go for neutral tones. I'd use a peachy-pink blush and a light brown eyeshadow and a small amount of mascara to highlight the eyes. Then just lipgloss for the lips.

Arigatou! That helped alot....I thought I should use brown eyeshadow, I wanted more opinions and suggestions though. I am such a noob XDD

BLEND, BLEND, BLEND. Use a darker toned eyeshadow right on your eyelids (just above the lashes) then grade up two shades, apply, grade up to a fairly light shade, apply just below brows, and BLEND IT ALL TOGETHER. Also, apply powder over makeup prevents it from smudging and adds a finished, blended look, but that's just for EXTREME makeup. As for the rest of Aerith, use a pale pink lipstick--something ALMOST natural but with a little gloss. A faint rosy blush on your cheeks works too, but don't put it really high on your cheekbones. That makes the makeup look harsh.

Have a look at Adella's gallery to see what makeup she chose for her Aerith cosplay.

It's very "peaches and cream" and natural :)

For Final Fantasy characters like Aeris, you shouldn't use string colors. In ff7, I believe she has no make up, so blue or purple eye shadow would be a bad idea. I would recommend a shade of brown to go over the eye, then transition into a lighter brown on the top. It will give you a more natural look as well as give your eyes more depth. If you want, you could even use a little eyeliner (brown or black), don't put on too much though. Hope that helps! :)
