thought i'd do a little write up kind of tutorial thing on how i designed and decided on my make up for my female joker cosplay which i'm going to be wearing to Neko Nation Melbourne !!
fiiiirrssstttt are the things you need for the tutorial in list form!
-> White facepaint
-> Setting powder (+ setting spray is optional!)
-> Black eyeshadow
-> Black eyeliner pencil
-> Green cosmetic glitter
-> Green eyeshadow
-> Red lip liner
-> Red lipstick
OKAY here we go!
ONE) paint your face white ! I used snazaroo white body and face make up cake which i bought online and set with mac cosmetics transparent powder!!! If i had any sealing spray i would have applied this after this!
TWO) With black eyeliner, line your water line and small amount underneath it.
THREEE) taking the black eyeshadow on a smallish brush from the corner of your eye draw a straight line up to the top of your eyelid real estate! (just under the brow bone in my case!)
Fill this is in with solid blank
HERE IT IS IMPORTANT TO COVER UP YOUR ALREADY WHITE FACE AS BLACK EYESHADOW WILL FALL ONTO IT OTHERWISE. IF THIS HAPPENS YOU'RE MCFARKED.
FOUR) carefully undo your glitter and start applying it in a straight line down the outside shape you created with the black eyeshadow! If you like you can leave it like that, OR, you can do as i decided which was add more glitter all over the lid!
IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU USE A COSMETIC GLITTER BECAUSE YOUR EYES ARE A VERY DELICATE AREA AND YOU DON'T WANT TO HURT YOURSELF OR YOU SKIN!
FIVE) on a new brush or whatevz, sometimes i use my fingers! you take the green eyeshadow and use it to map out your desired eyebrow shape! ( you can see in this picture i didn't do this because at the time i couldn't find my eyeshadow!)
if you're spray painting your hair green try and match the shadow to the hairspray colour!
SIX) now the lips. with the red lip liner, outline your normal / desired lip shape extended the corners out in an UPWARDS small flick. (again you can go as long as you like!)
if you wish to you can use a darker liner than your lipstick.
SEVEN) go over your lined lips with a red lipstick of your chosen shade!
i chose a very bright Jack Nicholson sort of shade!
EIGHT) to finish, curl your lashes and add faslies! (in my picture i just carefully applied some glitter to my own lashes!)
and that's it!
for my hair i will be getting some lime green hair extensions and placing those throughout my hair and throwing my front section up into a simple quiff!
i've had a lot of practice with quiffs for cheerleading!
i will be posting again in the future once i've gotten the entire costume together!!!
good luck with your make up!
comment a picture if you give it a shot!
