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!
If you’re like me, you drop your makeup case on the floor by accident all the time, resulting in broken caps and shattered makeup.
Here’s a simple trick to fixing shattered pressed powder (be it eyeshadow, blush or foundation).
When I was working on my Kurai cosplay last year, gothic and elegant gothic fashion inspired me a lot when it came to designing the details of the dress that couldn’t be seen well on the only picture that exists of that outfit. After browsing through countless pictures of visual-kei rockers, I decided to try my hand at dramatic eye make up. I wanted highly pigmented red eye make up and after trying a few powder shadows (and being sorely disappointed), Fé recommended I try Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in Red/#8.
