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!
As you can see, I wore my wig to the store so we could match the color of the hair to the makeup. It’s especially important when it comes to matching foundation and shadow colors.
Face products used:
- Prep + Prime Skin
- Fast Response Eye Cream
- Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer (NW20)
- Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation (NC15)
- Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
- Mineralize Foundation/Loose (Extra Light)
The concealer used matched my skin tone, however for the foundation and Mineralize Loose Powder, we applied a lighter colour to make my skin appear paler. Foundation and powder also needs to be applied below the jaw and on the neck to match the face.
Eyes and cheeks:
- Paint Pot (Painterly)
- Eye Shadows (Vanilla, Charcoal, Carbon)
- Fluidline (Blacktrack)
- Veluxe Brow Liner (Deep Dark Brunette)
- In Extreme Dimension Lash mascara
- False Eyelashes (#7)
- Pro Longwear Blush (Stay Pretty)
- Mineralize Skinfinish (Soft and Gentle)
The Paint Pot was used as a primer before eye shadows were applied. For the cheeks, the makeup artist used the Mineralize Skin Finish over the blush to add some highlights. I love this product to death, that’s what gives me such a nice glow on the photos.
Don’t forget to fill in your eyebrows even if you don’t need to change their color! You can see the difference on the photo above.
- Prep + Prime Lips
- Pro Longwear Lip Pencil (Kiss me Quick)
- Matte Lipstick (Russian Red)
- Clear Lipglass
When it comes to Snow White of course red lips are a must. Russian Red is a bluish red so you may want to pick a different color if it doesn’t match your skin tone well. The lip primer is a great product to make the lipstick last longer, I recommend it as well if you like to wear lipstick on a daily basis.
