officialrainbowmac said: I was wondering how to do the nogitusne!Stiles makeup from 3x24 'The Devine Move'. I'm going to a cosplay party next week and I want to get it right. Thanks!
I used a foundation about 2 shades lighter than my actual skin tone all over my face, including lips, but left my eye area untouched so I could go in with 2 different red toned Skin Illustrator glazing gels. I think the colors I used were Red 3 and Sunburn. I like the glazing gels, since they’re very translucent (they go on essentially like watercolor washes) and buildable while still looking natural on the skin, but afaik they’re only available at professional makeup suppliers or online through Premiere Products Inc. If you’re pressed for time/can’t get a hold of those, try red cream makeup around the eyes! Just check to be sure that whatever red you use is eye safe, since not all of them are.
I used the glazing gels sparingly inside my lips as well (not totally sure how to explain this, but check out the pictures and you’ll see what I mean!) and a product called Dry Lip by Maekup to get an exaggerated chapped effect, but if you’re going to a party I would skip that step as it’s something you wouldn’t want to accidentally ingest.
The cracks were just grey and black water-based makeup by Wolfe Bros and Mehron applied with a very fine liner brush. A water or alcohol-activated paint is the easiest to work with for lines like that—basically any liquid makeup, but you could try it with a cream as well.
Make sure to set it all with powder or a makeup sealer for longevity so it won’t crease during your party. Good luck! I hope that helped!
