Ever since I learned that MAC Cosmetics is no longer cruelty-free (jerks), I have been on a Quest to find a cruelty-free foundation to replace what I had been using. I started looking into cruelty-free foundation brands and Face Atelier was the one that came up the most, usually along with raving reviews.
If you have read a few of the makeup posts on this blog, you’ve probably noticed that we believe makeup for cosplay is very important and that we invest a bit of time and money in it. Truth is, I’m not the best one at makeup (it’s a work in progress) and for my Snow White cosplay I decided to go to my local MAC Cosmetics store to have one of the makeup artists there create a look for me. As long as you purchase $50 worth of products during your visit this service is free. If your budget allows it, I suggest you give it a try!
Why the heck should you (I’m assuming that if you’re reading this article you’re a lady) wear a garter belt outside of the bedroom? There’s a multitude of reasons, but for me it simply started with my weight and body type preventing me from wearing most tights comfortably.
The Super Size Nudy Red from Geo are large lenses that look burgundy on dark eyes despite being bright red in the vial. They’re not opaque so your own eye colour will affect the way these lenses look.
Name: HD Microfinish Powder
Brand: Make Up For Ever
Price: C$35 or C$18 (to go size)
Purchased from: Sephora
Having a shine-free face is one of my main concerns in daily life and also in cosplay. I hate looking oily (who doesn’t) and having shiny spots on your t-zone can ruin any good cosplay photo. The HD Microfinish Powder from Make Up For Ever has been keeping my skin matte since I started using it a few months ago and I love it. It makes my skin look like satin! I also always apply a generous amount of it on my face and neck when I cosplay. That’s why I was horrified when I came across pictures of celebrities with awful cases of makeup malfunction which were attributed to this product.
