What would you recommend I use to put colored circles on my cheeks, e.g. Pikachu or Raichu?

Face paint would defiantly work, i also read somewhere that liquid eyeliner or eyeshadow also work a little better than face paint!

I really wanna try the crossplay one now. >w<
Just as a second opinion, the videos by this person are fantastic. Highly recommended for beginners, like me. xD

Exactly how much makeup is .25oz? If I purchase a red creme facepaint, is .25 enough to solidly cover almost half of my entire face?

Does anyone know of a reliable online store that has supplied them with Ben-Nye's or Kryolan makeup?


I would also like to know this. /: Can anyone help?

Hey! I have mild rosacea and I'm wondering if anyone has makeup tips for extra coverage or tips to deal with the redness?

If I'm in controlled temperatures my face looks fine but at the con crammed in with thousands of people it will be hot and my costume requires a long jacket. Even once I cool down it takes a good 30-45 minutes at least for my skin to return to its normal color.

I haven't found any concealer to get rid of it completely and I was wondering if you all knew any tricks? Thanks!

You'll need color correction concealer. Green concealer will cancel out the red on your skin. You'll apply this before your foundation and then seal it with powder to help your make-up last all day. Yellow concealer will work for any darkness under your eyes.

As for where to get green or yellow concealer-Physician's Formula is available in most drugstores or Walmart and it is fairly inexpensive.

I saw the thread list didn't have any 'how to look younger, cuter, etc' threads, so here are a few that I remember seeing around:
How do you make your face look more adorable/younger?
How to make my face look cuter
how to look more cute?

I'm a 17-year-old preparing to cosplay 30-year-old Balsa from Moribito. My face is much younger than her's, so I was wondering what techniques should I use to make my appearance more mature like her's?
