Here’s a similar idea to my painting-style makeup, but using slightly different techniques to try and make it look something like a charcoal drawing. Not sure if it worked but pfft

i am going to cosplay amythest from steven universe ,and im not sure how i should color my skin. this is my first cosplay that involves an unnatural skin color and im not sure whether to use face paint and arm sleeves, or just use body paint. I wont need to wear this cosplay again (im only going for 1 day). im also not sure if the body paint will rub off. If you think arm sleeves would be best, what is the easiest way to make them? also whats the best face paint for sensitive skin? thanks :3

I’d recommend using face paint and arm sleeves over full body paint. That way you don’t even have to worry about your body paint smudging or getting on other things or people! Plus, it takes less time than painting your whole body. Here’s some tutorials on making them:

As for the makeup, I also have sensitive skin and I’ve had great experiences with Mehron’s Paradise makeup! Here it is in light purple:

It’s easy to apply as well, and just comes off with face wash and water!

I hope this helps!

I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier the other day. It was a cool costume.

This was both my first time using my new Mehron paints (which I LOVE) and my first ever attempt at body painting. Turns out painting your own arm is REALLY hard.

EDIT: have been getting questions about the clothes - they’re paint, not a costume :)

I'm not sure if you've been asked this before so I'm sorry if I couldn't find it but what makeup do you use for cosplaying trolls? You have such smooth full colour that looks fantastic and I haven't found anything that does that yet. Any suggestions/tips? Thank you!

I have never answered this question before on tumblr, in person sure, but never apologize for being curious!

This might be disappointing to hear, but I use two layers of light grey Snazaroo for all of my basic grey tones for my troll cosplays! What I’ve found with Snazaroo is that it’s all about applying the layers correctly and sealing. (For white colors like Kurloz, I use Mehron Paradise Paint in white, but the process is the same).

So here are some tips for how I apply it:

  • Always start by washing your face and drying it completely.
  • Apply a makeup sealer to your face and let it dry (this helps especially if you have oily skin). I personally use Mehron brand.

  • Apply the snazaroo using a medium amount of water over the entire area you are painting. I like to use a large paintbrush for this part - sponges never work for me.

  • I like to work in sections, letting each dry completely. Once its dry (a hairdryer is often your friend), spray more makeup sealer and let it dry completely.
  • Do a second layer of Snazaroo, making sure to use a smaller amount of water; This means the paint will be thicker. Let it dry.
  • I seal first using a layer of makeup sealer, then using baby powder and a blush brush to cover the entire painted area, and I repeat this step two or three times until I’m sealed.

  • From there I have the ability to go in any direction for any troll, using eyeshadow, black Mehron, and various other colored eyeliners to become whatever troll I choose!

Feel free to ask anymore questions! I plan on making a tutorial video soon on how I do all of this, so look for that in the future. c:

Happy Cosplaying!

Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

All four of the Queens of the Stone Age-inspired makeups I’ve done over the last couple of weeks! Here are the Boneface characters from I Appear Missing, If I Had A Tail, Kalopsia and Keep Your Eyes Peeled.

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday and Nebula was just the coolest.

I’m not a cosplayer but I’ve seen a lot of people cosplaying as dark elves from Skyrim with their faces just painted solid grey or black. I’ve been playing it recently and so I tried to get this a bit closer to how the characters look in the game. 

Excuse the blotchy red on my head, I’ve just dyed my hair!
