Where to buy makeup for this?





Where could I find face paint or special make-up for me to paint my eye like how it's pictured? It's actually my first time painting my face (or in this case it's just my eye) for cosplay, but i'm not nervous at all. Just a note; although I don't think this is going to be a big deal but I'd rather not buy online because I'd rather to go a store and buy instead of buying online because since it's only my eye, there'd be no point in waiting 2 weeks for my product to come for this small bottle or whatever it's going to be.

Given that Halloween is right around the corner, you should have an easier time finding grease paint or cake makeup. Check your local arts supply and crafting stores. Even drug or grocery stores. You can apply them with a synthetic brush. Another option is white eyeliner and purple/orange eye shadow.
You will need a setting spray for this kind of makeup job. Something like Ben Nye Final Seal. ELF also has a setting spray, but I don't know where to find it in Canada. I wouldn't use hairspray given how close the makeup is to the eye. Otherwise, check the other threads in this forum related to body and face painting. Good luck!

I could probably hit up Michaels since id like to go there is weekend .
I know that drugs stores have them and I could probably find a purple eyeliner and use the setting spray once I get it (probably not what you meant) but probably not an orange one since makeup seems to come in shades for peoples natural skin color and just to need to find one that looks good. But like you suggested, cake makeup. What kinda place could I find this type of make up (probably not a walmart but I guess it couldnt hurt)?
Other than that thank you .

Walmart might, especially since it's getting closer to Halloween.
