Cosplay Makeup/skincare/beauty etc.!!!! :3
« on: May 08, 2010, 11:43:18 am »
HERE IT IS! WEATHER ITS FROM FACIAL HAIR or to the far depths of LOOKIN ASIAN WE WILL COVER IT ON THIS TOPIC 8D

As a cosplayer I think makeup/skincare/beauty is very important. Make up helps a lot when taking photos. Now I don't wear a lot of make up but even just A LITTLE bit helps with how you look and how photos taken of you turn out.

BTW These are the video's/ tutorials that I have like over the years of watching and learning, there are MANY MANY MANY tutorials out there Im not claiming these are the best! I am sharing what I know and what I like! :3 If you have other stuff to share please post!

For beginners and people who just want it simple:

Q:Buying Stuff?
A: DRUGSTORE. There the best. Don't splurge on expensive make up brands. Go to stores like Wallgreens, Wallmart, Target, Freddies etc. to get your make up. Everything I list is basically from a drugstore. (And this is the stuff I like to use :3)

Eyeliner:
Pencil: Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Eye Pencil
Liquid Liner: Wet n Wild liquid smudge proof liner (also available in water proof)
Gel Liner: Mabelline Eye Studio

Foundation, Powder and Concealer: Cover Girl

Mascara: What I like to you is Maybelline's Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara. It actually works REALLY good. Any mabelline mascara is amazing BTW. Also proper mascara application is important.
*on a side note DO NOT, I MEAN DO NOT use Mabelline's Great lash Mascara!!! As cheap as it is it really sucks. A LOT. I tried using it after hearing all the negative comments and its totally true. Believe me. Go spend your money on something better.

Eyeshadow: Im not really sure on this.... I usually by you know drugstore stuff thats all

Make up remover? OLIVE OIL :D




ALSO SKIN CARE IS VERY IMPORTANT! Having healthy skin is important! Also gettin rid of acne, scarring and all that yucky stuff

Flawless Skin makeup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmkRR9WlFKs

Also eating healthy keeps your skin healthy :3

Washing your face every day helps too!

Need to get rid/ prevent acne? Try using an asprin face mask. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-Hksg8B4cQ Its cheap and it works :3

What I like to use to keep my face clean and free of acne: http://www.nuskin.com/en_US/products/nuskin/face_care/clear_action/01110391.html
(yes its expensive but my mom works for this company. pshhh yea its not my money XD and It works really well :3)

Olive oil is good for your skin! :3


***MONEY SAVING TIPS***

*CHECK THE CLEARANCE SECTION*
Yes I always check the clearance section of a store. Sometimes I find great stuff there for cheaper. The other day I found my favorite mascara in a clearance section for 2$ :D it was originally around 10$ STEAL there was only a tiny tear on the packaging.

*CHECK FOR SALES*

*ONLY BUY WHAT YOU NEED*

For Skincare going natural = cheaper and cleaner!

Thats all I have folks NOW START POSTING XD

also IDK on body make up etc. XD

I think you could have made this shorter by just saying for the best makeup tips visit the following YouTube sites:

Michelle Phan's Channel
Tsunen Tsusho's Channel
Emily Noel's - Beauty Broadcast Channel

That about does it.   ;D

You really think that would get people's attention? Not really. For a thread like this, it should be split up like it is.
Humans are naturally lazy and instead of having to search through someone's channel for what we want, we want it to be given to us in a straight up link to exactly what we want to see.

Though this isn't helpful to me at all, I know it will be to a lot of people.
It's not the most organized thing in the world but it's clean and flows pretty well.
I think meep did a very good job on helping out others.
If you want it neater, maybe try url formatting it?
