Question!

I'm going to be doing a Liara cosplay from Mass Effect, and it requires me to paint my entire face blue. As she has thin 'eyebrows' that look like a thin painted line, would I just paint the blue face paint over my eyebrows, then paint on the brow itself (maybe put some glue on after I put on the face paint), or should I put the glue, the face paint, then the brow paint?

Would this work for bit parts of your hair, like sideburns and the baby hairs on the back of the neck or is this just for eyebrows only? :<c

Hi! I don't know if this has been covered yet, but if you could use the glue method with powder eyeshadow if you don't have the paint on hand?

DERPDERP I CAN SAY THIS IS A GREAT METHOD.
you don't even need acrylic paint.
i couldn't find some, so i just used that kiddie paint that comes in tiny cups attached to each other. ( /lolwhataretheyevencalled ) like normal paint. but non-toxic up to an extent. e ue

WORKS BEAUTIFULLY, BRO.

This is really useful though my eyebrows ended up looking funny. Maybe I've got the color wrong? I don't know. I'm thinking I might put in some hair from the wig. Has anybody tried that before?

Thank you so much! I'm cosplaying as Zelda from Skyward Sword for Katsucon, and I didn't want to end up bleaching my eyebrows. This is extremely helpful! I'll have to try this out over Thanksgiving break. :]
