Last night I did a CLOSET MAKEUP TEST for Lapis Lazuli from Steven Universe, to see how I would look and how I would do my makeup if I decided to cosplay her (and I have). I repeat, THIS IS A CLOSET MAKEUP TEST.
Lapis Lazuli, the stone itself, is so so beautiful and so much more than just blue, so I really wanted to incorporate the gold, white, and various blue flecks that are so common in the stone. This is the first time I’ve done this makeup, and when I do it more and actually have blue body paint instead of eyeshadow, it will look much better<3 I wish the lighting wouldn’t have ruined the makeup details!
First Beast Boy makeup test with absolutely 0% of the rest of the cosplay done. It’s not very good, but I’m posting this because this cosplay means a LOT to me and it doesn’t feel right to not share it with my Tumblr friends. :’)
After many…many hours of grueling makeup work, I think we finally got my 2-D makeup figured out. This isn’t the full cosplay, I’ll have a completely different wig (I got sent the wrong one), and my shirt will actually fit me and be cropped without sleeves. I’ll have his tattoos and the little skull on the hat. The biggest thing that still needs to be done is the teeth, which will be like painted retainers. That’ll be fun.
