It’s a tardy con report, but better late than never, right??
Back in March I went to Anime Matsuri in Houston, TX. The convention dates fell during spring break and it also gave me an occasion to go see my boyfriend who’s currently there for work. I traveled there by myself which meant none of my usual cosplay friends came with me to the convention. I would love to go back if I ever have the chance, but only if I can drag someone with me! Cosplay isn’t as fun without friends.

I think for cosplayers it’s especially important to have long-lasting makeup since, unlike theatre artists who only need it to last for an entire performance, we need it to last from early morning through an entire day (and sometimes late into the night!) during conventions.
Here are 10 simple tips (or steps, really!) to make your foundation last longer!
After a disappointing experience trying to find a cruelty-free foundation online, where I thought there would be more variety, I decided to focus on brands I could find in person.

Name: Shinny Violet (also known as Puffy 3 Tone)
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Lifespan: 1 year after vial is opened
Purchased from: Pinky Paradise
A while back, Pinky Paradise had a buy 2 get 1 free promotion on lenses. You couldn’t decide what free lenses you were going to get and I ended up receiving the beautiful G&G Shinny Violet aka Puffy 3 Tone lenses. I only ever owned another pair of purple/violet lenses which were the EOS Adult Violet that I don’t have anymore so these are a nice replacement.
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.
