Hey there, fellow cosplay enthusiasts! Let’s talk about how to level up your cosplay game with some killer makeup tips. We all know that contact lenses can make or break your cosplay look, so it’s crucial to match your makeup with them to create a cohesive and stunning appearance. Here are some tricks and hacks to help you achieve that perfect match.
1. Choosing Contact Lenses Color
First and foremost, you must select the proper color of contact lenses. You might need to wear lenses that are a different color than your natural eye color depending on the cosplay character you’re portraying. For example, if you’re cosplaying as a blue-eyed character, but your eyes are brown, you gotta switch things up and wear blue contacts for brown eyes.
Once you’ve got the perfect contact lenses, it’s time to think about your makeup. The general rule is to choose colors that complement or enhance your eyes. If you have blue contacts, choose eyeshadow hues from the same color family, such navy, teal, or turquoise. Alternatively, you can choose neutral shades like brown, beige, or champagne, which will make your eyes pop without overwhelming the color of your lenses.
3. Choosing the eyeshadow
If you have green contacts, choose an eyeshadow color from the same family of greens, such olive or forest green. The green tones in your lenses will be complemented if you choose warm-toned colors like copper, bronze, or gold instead. Warm, earthy colors like bronze, copper, or rust look great on people with brown contacts. Instead, use cool-toned colors like taupe, gray, or silver to contrast with the warm tone of your lenses.
4. Choosing an eyeliner
Choose an eyeliner color that enhances your lenses without competing with them. You can use a navy or dark blue eyeliner if you have blue lenses on. Use a dark green or forest green eyeliner if you are using green contact lenses. You can choose a brown or black eyeliner if you have brown contact lenses. Just like that!
Mascara is another key component of your makeup look. Be careful to select a soft mascara that won’t hurt your eyes, when you wear contact lenses. You can opt for a mascara that is specifically designed for contact lens wearers or choose one that is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free.
Consider the overall color scheme of your cosplay look when choosing your lip color. If your eyes are the main focus of your look, go for a neutral lip color like nude or pink. As an alternative, you can select a striking lip color that goes well with your lenses, such as a crimson or berry shade for blue lenses or a warm orange or coral shade for green lenses.
Remember, the key to nailing your cosplay look is to experiment and have fun with it. Don’t be afraid to try new colors and techniques, and remember that practice makes perfect. You may build an eye-catching cosplay outfit that will draw attention at your next convention with a little bit of imagination and attention to detail!
