Happy Friday the 13th everyone!
The question in the title is one that I've heard or seen many people asking - and a question I've also asked myself.
At first I'd like to say that I have nothing against people who don't wear make-up when cosplaying. Since I can't read minds I can't know why they don't do so - and let's face it: I don't use that much make-up for example when I cosplay Josh.
But when it comes to anime characters/VOCALOIDs/manga characters etc. I try to make myself look a bit more like the character and that's possible with make-up.
Today I decided to do this "power of make-up" thing with cosplay make-up. The idea is that a person only does the make-up like usual but just to the other side of their face while another side of their face is all natural. I chose Luka Megurine's make-up since I haven't done it in ages
(and I will not do it in the near future again).
Note: I'm not a professional make-up artist. Usually I don't wear make-up at all.
All photos (c) me.
All of the pics (excluding first two ones) were taken with a flash.
These pictures aren't edited in any way.
|All natural, no make-up at all.|
|I put a lens to my other eye. I'm also wearing foundation and powder in this picture.|
|Coloured the eye-brow and added the blush and the contour.|
|The make-up side of my face.|
|The natural side of my face.|
|Added the eyeliner and some light-coloured eye-shadow.|
|Put on the false eyelashes... And fucked up my eyeliner because I poked myself in the eye with the damn lashes. Fml.|
|Just compare the sides of my face.|
But yeah, here you can see what make-up actually does to one's looks
This post was quite nice to do - even though I don't like wearing make-up, sometimes I just like to experiment different kinds of make-up styles and techniques.
See you next time~!
