Sally makeup experiments 2b

Sally makeup experiments 2b - The Nightmare Before Christmas - Sally
Trying out the different kinds of makeup at my disposal for my Halloween cosplay.

This white goes on a lot smoother, and sets well, but is a little translucent to be perfect. Also, it does not blend very well, and does not layer at all (you can see a few spots around my eyes where the makeup just wouldn't stick). These colours/design seem to work better than my frist try... and once I get a proper brush the seams will look much better, too.

This shot gives a good view of my lashes - not perfect, but as close as I could get on my budget.

No problem! Just make sure you pat on the liquid makeup cause it has a tendency to smudge off if you wipe it on.

Bulma - Thank you! Unfortunately I won't have a Jack with me T_T

makonurikoryoko - Using _both_ the thick stuff and the liquid, huh? I'll give it a try, thanks for the advice!

ShimmerJester - Thanks for the compliment, and the suggestions! Im not too squeamish about using acrylic paint in small amounts (I used it for the white hilights here: ), but I don't think it's something I want to try on my whole face!

Oh ok, maybe take Makonurikoryoko adivce, you MAYBE use like normal paint arylic paints, if your face isn't senstive. But i can't wait to see the costume done, you will make a great sally

When I tryed using a cheap face paint i used two different cheap ones. one that was thicker an dthat wa sthe base I used and one that was alot more liquidy. After I put on the base I made sure to add powder over top (baby powder worked great) and then used a makeup spange to add to more liquid one to get thicker color. Of course toped with more powder to seal it a bit. It isn't as great as a more expensive makeup but it worked when I tested Sally makeup.

ShimmerJester - unfortunately this _is_ facepaint, so without getting more expensive stuff, this seems to be the best coversage I can get - maybe I can get better with practice?

CheshireCat - thanks - but I've got quite a bit of work left to do before I can put the whole thing up on display ^_^

WOW cool I wanna see the whole cosplay

maybe try light blue face paint rather than powder, and use white facial paint which will make u look paler and cover any skin colour like sally
