wow two posts in one week it’s getting all crazy up in here lol.
So basically its Comicon in November and I am going in full on cosplay, so as you do you plan ahead and start getting all of your costume pieces together, I wont say what I am going as yet but you will all see more as the weeks and months go on so watch this space 🙂
Any who we are getting away from the point here. I brought what I thought was the perfect wig from aliexpress the colour was perfect and I the price of £8 seemed even better. it came and when I took it out I was all excited as I always am when I get a new wig, then I realise like a fool I brought a half wig not a full wig, it was so far from what I needed for my character. but on the plus side it is nice so I thought i’d use it to try out a look with some glitter I got recently i’ll link it all below as I always do.
I wanted to see how this turned out as I will be making it more extravagant for comicon.

I primed my face I’m sorry I forget its name as I got it from one of my lookfantastic boxes it has photo ready in the title oops lol. Application of foundation was done using a beauty blender, NYX concealer was used down the bridge of the nose and up onto the centre of the forehead. take the Maybeline concealer and hide all those tired eyes lol. next take the contour palette using a darker shade than your normal skin tone and carve out those cheek bones shade in the temple area, set all of this with your choice of finishing powder mine was the Lunatick Cosmetic Labs one I love it and that’s all the base work done.
For brows you actually can’t go wrong with the goof proof pencil it make filling your brows so simple finish that off with the ready, set, brow gel and your good for the day.
The statement part of this look is those sparkly eyes now I’m not usually a fan of blue but I need to have a play around a bit to find the right colour combination for my cosplay.
I took the Barry M Eye shine palette and used the bright blue shade to fill in my lid I packed it on as well as I could to make it a nice stand out base to place the glitter onto. Using the Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave Palette I used the shade Soft as a transition colour from the crease to the brow, the put a layer of Latte in the crease to give the blue a nice warm base to sit on.
Taking the colour Skylight from the same palette apply to the crease and blend, blend, blend this look was a hell of a lot of blending lol, once blended to your satisfaction go in on the crease again with the colour Midnight Rainbow, again from the revolution palette I did this to tray and add some depth then I blended it out but not too much as I wanted that depth to stay in the crease.
If you are happy with the way it blended then it would be time to add the glitter. I don’t own any pressed glitter yet and I think I may have to before November comes as finding a good base to stick the glitter down to isn’t easy lol but in the end I used the gloss that comes in the Barry M Eye shine palette, it worked pretty well but then you may notice in some photos it stuck to the crease in places a little.
To finish the eyes I used a new waterproof liner that I brought from aliexpress its Chinese so I can’t read all the packaging but it did the job perfectly, then i curled my lashes added mascara and lashes, lined my water line with the Maybelline Black liner and that is the eyes complete.
(little tip to make liner in the water line last longer use a fine eye brush and run al little black eye shadow over it this sets it and makes it last a whole lot longer)
Finish the look by bronzing the cheeks, highlighting the cheek bones, forehead, bridge of the nose and even the brow if you want extra shine lol. I used the colour subsolar from the sleek palette.
For my lips I used the Kylie lip kit you don’t need me to tell you where that goes lol, and that is the complete look.
So what do you guys really think I’m not super happy with it in the sense I want the glitter to sparkle so much it blinds you lol, but in all seriousness it needs work and I don’t think my camera shows the look off that well I don’t know why as I don’t edit my pictures other than adding a border, maybe its the camera setting ill have to have a look at it next time.
If anyone has any tips or suggestions for good pressed glitter preferably blue please let me know in the comments below and I will look into it.
As always I will link all of the products used incase you guys want to get them and show me up and do a better job at this look lol let me know if you do though 🙂
