foundation seal

anonymous asked:

Hi there! After seeing your Star Wars cosplay, I was curious of what brand of face paint you recommend, and any techniques for applying it or keeping it from creasing, setting spray etcThank you!

Hi friend! So when I’m not covering a lot of space, ie: when most of my body is covered by the costume, I prefer to wear water based cake bodypaint. My favorite I’ve worked with so far is Mehron’s Paradise AQ. My process is as follows: I use a good foundation primer, apply the bodypaint with a wide foundation brush, seal with a finishing spray (I like Ben Nye’s Final Seal), contour with powder eye shadows and finally, seal everything with a good coat of matte, translucent powder makeup.

I have a question, if you don't mind answering. What brand facepaint or makeup did you use to create the look in your profile picture? I'm kinda new to the facepaint/makeup portion of cosplay and have no idea what brands are the best pigmented and consistency as well as lasting. Please and thank you!

I’ve actually only ever used what was in my makeup cabinet to do the face paint, so it’s mostly Manic Panic white foundation sealed with white powder, and white creme eyeliner for the fiddly bits and the black is Jeffree Star liquid lipstick applied with a fine brush. Because it’s makeup designed for everyday wear it lasts pretty well and doesn’t do anything nasty to my skin.

I know others have proper methods for doing it @alexskyline and @columbiaskies both do awesome jobs of it and there’s a pretty damn awesome YouTube tutorial of it by NsomniaksDream here.

Now you call this living?

Now you call this living
But what is living without loving
And what is love but a verb
Nothing more than a misconstrued word
Taken out of context by the world

We all strive for happiness
And society tells us “love” is the foundation
But they’ve sealed it in an unobtainable jar
in which we labeled “expectations”
and placed it on a pedestal so high it gets lost within the stars

And although I did come from a broken home
And everyone I’ve ever known
eventually ends up alone

I still had high hopes

Hopes that love was not a lie

I’d find the brightest star each night
Make a wish and close my eyes
Send it to the sky above
Wishing someone would prove my theory wrong about love

But I’ve been proven right again

The truth is that love is dead
As are the stars in the sky
The 2nd star to the right was my wishing star
And inevitably it too
Like all the others
Burned out tonight
