I will also be doing a MASS ammount of female cosplays in august, so I need to learn exactly what you posted this this thread about. Can you say life saver? lol
Hey, as long as you can make it work in your favor. .... Yeah though, between this thread and my thread in the makeup board, I got so many links and references to get a grasp of what needed to be done. Definitely look for those sources. I did use practically every makeup video person at least once. I remember using Misty Eyes before, but never worked out. I remember GossMakeupArtist helped me figure my eye type and early contouring. Pixiwoo, I just used her today to help with eyeshadow (though this will take a while).... Pertrilude for the eyebrow concealing (Which I think in the end, I am going to thread. My brows are stubborn as hell) and TheMakeupChair for today's try at contour again.

I got to subscribe to a few of them, especially Goss. For some reason, I really like him. He amuses me.


Anywho, who are you looking to do? s:

Me too.... mine stays shaven down for a day at least, but in my pictures, I have covered my moustache area and beard area with pinkish cheap lipstick before applying my foundation and after I set my face primer. s:.... Seems to help. As someone said, it cancels out the blue tint of the 5 oclock shadow. Always keep a pink or orange lipstick on ya.

Thanks again Ichigo. :3..... Amazing is what I aim for.

Will say, I need a tutorial for your eyes. Everytime I see your avvie here, I get jealous of those eyes and wanna emulate them. Sorry if that is creepy, because it isn't meant to be.

Thanks Cobalt. If there is anything I learned from all of this,, makeup has nothing on the difficulty of cosplay choice. ... especialllllllllllllllllly when you don't follow much anime anymore. D:

Oh? Maybe it's just me, but I end up changing up makeup schemes depending on the character, which sometimes makes it difficult to coordinate different combinations and whatnot. It also does not help if you have a bunch of friends or are part of a cosplay group that suggests you cosplay from this and that.

Getting the basics of makeup down sure comes a long way, though.

Lol, not sure if you misunderstood me, but I meant it as a joke, how choosing someone to cosplay is harder than makeup.

But hey, at least you have ideas on who to cosplay at times. I run dry. My friends DO want to do a group collaboration sometime though, so it would be fun if we ever get one going. Closest we MIGHT get going is a Madoka one. I know one girl in the group wants to do Akemi, then we know a girl not in our group possibly doing Madoka..... and the Akemi told me I should do Sayaka. s:.... Someone else told me I would make an "adorable Sailor Jupiter".... which is funny because I considered Sailor Moon (Anime not character) before, but yeah, that isn't going to be a group thing if I did. s:

But yeah, it totally does. I can't wait to show it off to everyone once I get to the con this year.

Much better!

Two things: brows and throat. The brows are looking unnatural. Check some easy brow shaping videos or tutorials and play around. Yours are too thin, and they make you look surprised. Some light plucking/waxing/threading will definitely help. Without making you look too femme.
Throat looks too dark. Can't tell if it's makeup or beard stubble.

You've come a long ways, haven't you? I'm really happy to see your quick learning and progress! Please keep us updated, too!

Lol, it's shadow, not stubble. s:.... and the brows, yeah, I honestly kind of BS'd them tonight. Focused moreso on the eyes, and forgot the brows at the end. -_-.... I still hope to thread my real brows.

Lol, yep. Practically having just fun now, xD.... Still looking up youtube things, and eyes were the focus of the night.
