Doll-like Makeup!

Hi! I was wondering if you had any tips or advice on how to make my face more doll-like! I have a costume that requires me to look younger than I currently am. What would you suggest?

Thanks =D

I found that circle lenses and false eye lashes create a beautiful doll effect! Lining your lower water line with white eye liner also does wonders. Lastly, I would recommend finding a skin routine that makes your skin look flawless. I like to use 2 concealers, a foundation (what ever ones you think are best) and my secret weapon, Airspun loose face powder.

I hoped this helped a bit.

That sounds great! What about contouring? Is there a way to make it look subtle? I have a square jawline when looking straight on which seems to give me some trouble.

Also, is there a brand of white eyeliner you would recommend? None of my want to stay!

Thanks =)

For doll makeup, I'd recommend looking up "gyaru makeup tutorials" on Youtube. There's a million contouring tricks for jaw, nose, temples, face, etc. Circle lenses are false lashes will definitely be your best friend when it comes to the "doll face."

Recommendation for white eyeliner would be NYX jumbo eye pencil in "milk." I'm on my fourth one -- they're great.

You should set the Milk Jumbo Pencil with white eyeshadow, because its sticky plus they can crease/fade on their own. A lot of girls like to do small, bee-stung 1920's-like lips with the color slowly fading out into skin—you cover your natural lip line with foundation/concealer or just skip the covering of the natural lip line and blend the edges out to have a gradient.
