I can't tell if it's the camera or your complexion, but for a cutesy character like Honey, you might want to invest in some kind of makeup powder stuff. It makes your face look really smooth in pictures, and if you apply it lightly, it's not obvious in person. Consult the makeup subforum for a better explanation, this isn't my area of expertise.
here is the charater i am cosplaying any help would be great


thanks ^.^

You can probably get away with powder foundation or BB cream. Since you're in the UK, visit your local Boot's/Superdrug and see what products are in your budget. For BB cream, MUA and No. 7 seem to be popular choices, according to the websites. Powder foundation is a dry option, but you may need a special brush to apply it. Hope this gives you some ideas!

Both, but with the powder you'll need a brush; for BB cream, you can use your (clean) fingers.

Liquid foundation or BB can use fingers, but powder will need a brush or powder puff. You'll need to set the liquid or BB with powder anyway, so it will stay in place and not be slightly sticky. I think the problem is more balancing your complexion so it's even like Honey's, hence the suggestion on makeup to begin with! All of it is easy to apply though; powder can be overapplied with a puff or sponge though the brushes they can come with can do the job for as cheap as they are.

I like using liquid foundation for cosplay nowadays but I feel like there's a bit of a learning curve. When I first started getting into make up, I always wore Bare Minerals foundation for school dances and for cosplay. It looks wonderful in pictures and is extremely easy to apply. They like to use the phrase, "Swirl, tap, buff." Which is exactly how you apply it. It comes in a powder form. My mom bought me a kit that came with the foundation and a powder brush but there are definitely affordable alternatives to the brush. I hear Real Techniques brushes are very nice.
