White face

Yes, I waited for quite awhile after putting my question in with everyone else who wanted to know how to do white face make up in the Jrock area. No one answered. So I'm making a new topic...and this really ought to be put into the sticky thread "Frequently Asked Questions" up there since I doubt I'll be the last to ask.

http://images.cosplay.com/photo.php...ion=117&u=1-190

Can any of you guess what this cosplayer (Kabuki Boy I believe) has on or even how he did it so perfectly? If you don't, do you know his email or any way of contacting him? This is exactly the even, matte white I need. My natural skintone is a caramel hue with a distinct orange/yellow/pink undertone. I need the make up to cover my face, ears, behind the eyers, and entire neck and make it completely white.

Why doesn't the other threads help me? As I said before, no one answered, but also because I'd rather not have several different suggestions (I've read them all already). I just want to know exactly what brand he's using on his face. That's it. That is all.

If none of you can help me out with this either, then if you have used whatever method has been described in the various threads, can you post a picture or just shout out that you have done it and the pictures are in your profile? I'll go look and if it's what I want, please don't mind me if I PM you out of the blue. But with hundreds of people on each day, yeah...I need you guys to speak up.

If you've done this but DO NOT have photos showing it somewhere on line, please don't answer. It'll just be a waste of my time and yours. Though if you know what brand Kabuki Boy is using on his face, by all means, speak up! Thank you again.

I think his ID here is Kabuki...try PMing him. If you find out I wouldn't mind knowing the brand he uses either...^_^

If you're going for all over white face, just go to any theatre store and ask around. You should get plenty of different varieties to choose from. A liquid based one should give you the coverage you need.

Whoa, extremely late reply. I'm very sorry! *grimacing* How frustrating. Here it is again. If it doesn't show up then I know it's not my fault this time.

Tip: don't rely on pressed-powder! *learned this the hard way*
1 Wash your face
2 use some kind of moisturizer that's not too oily
3 then cream or liquid foundation
4 and then use loose powder to set it.

Ok.... so where do you guys get the white foundation from?? @@ Does WHITE work beter or sould I just get something pale but with SOME color in it?
The person who needs the white face in our group is quite...... tanned....... ^_^;; And yes......... I've learned that pressed powder is a no-no (played around with it before). We need white face for Macabre Kyo's makeup.

I've wondered how to get a white face for awhile too. . . my theatre uses white face paint that's in stick form and you smear it on you skin kind of like a roll-on. It seems to work pretty well on the characters who need it, although I've never tried it myself.

manicpanic.com sells it, though it's kinda expensive, but don't go any more than a few shades lighter, so you may want to just use a pale-tan (unless you want to cover ALL exposed areas)

Aaah, what's the difference between press powder, stick, pancake and loose? You're talking to a make up virgin here. ^__^

Okay, so you're talking about two different things here, powder and foundation. Foundation is a type of makeup that gives maximum coverage. Generally it comes in liquid, but you can also get it in stick form, which is just what it sounds like, a stick of makeup. You rub the stick on your skin and blend it in with a sponge. Pancake makeup is generally only used for theatre or costumes, and it also gives maximum coverage. It's a dry cake of makeup that you apply with a wet makeup sponge.

Powder is what you use after applying foundation to set it, or it's used to give skin a matte look (as opposed to shiny due to skin oils). It comes in loose (powder in a container, has the consistency of flour), or pressed (comes in a compact, looks like a little cake of makeup). Either one works about the same, but pressed is less messy.

In my experience, if you apply the white thinly it will stay on and not rub off your hands. But it won't give you a super-100%-white look. If you apply it so it completely covers your skin, it WILL rub off on whatever you touch, to some degree.

I recommend Kryolan brand Aquacolor paint....it's what I used for my Morpheus cosplay (which involved white face, neck, chest, ears and hands).

In Japan, brides traditionally do the white face, and in some cases do it on ALLLLLL exposed skin (hands and arms included). Mayhap visit a Japanese bridal supply shop?
