Kyoshi Warrior Tutorial Part 2 by dangerousladies Kyoshi Warrior Tutorial Part 2 by dangerousladies
QUESTIONS
WHAT/WHY SNAZAROO?
It's a cake type make-up. It's water-based, meaning it comes off easily with soap and water, or, hell, just water works. It doesn't come off once it dries, and it doesn't dry your skin out too much. To be honest, the only time I've ever had to touch it up was after making out, and that was just because the paint doesn't stay on lips very well. Otherwise, it's good to go!

It's also $7 CND per cake, which will last you a damn long time. I still have tons left, and that's after doing about a dozen Kyoshi warriors, a Joker, and a Padme Amidala, not to mention a few smaller things.

You can also change your skin tone with brown snazaroo. I rushed it so it looked alarming, but I bet it'd look fine if I took my time.

WILL I BREAK OUT?
I've never broken out with Snazaroo, even after 12+ hours, whereas your average cheap red and white Halloween cream make-up will turn your face into a pizza. Snazaroo is also hypo-allergenic.

However, I've been told that some people are allergic to the red pigment in face paint/make-up, so I'd advise doing a skin test before doing full-blown make-up. Put a small bit on a patch of your skin, wait an hour or so, and take it off. If you look fine, continue on, if you don't, don't continue.

HOW ABOUT EATING/DRINKING?
Get ready to use a straw, or at least be restricted to food you can pop in your mouth without touching your lips.




GET READY
- Pluck your eyebrows. Clean them up. If you're brave, take off the outside -- red goes there, not eyebrow. If you don't want to, or your eyebrows are light enough, just paint over them. If you don't want to but don't want your dark eyebrow to show, get a eyebrow sealer and paint that on first. It'll give you a smooth surface to paint over and you won't have to remove your eyebrows.

- Moisturize. You should be doing this anyway, but do it now.

- Make sure your brushes are clean.

- I was already wearing eyeliner, but this isn't necessary.

- I'd advise trying to paint your face at least once or twice before "the big day" where you get your pictures done/go to the convention. These things get better with practice! Someday I'll post a comparison of how my skills have changed just over a few practice runs, and you'll see.



TUTORIAL
1. White paint. First of all, you're going to want to get a water dish (I just use the lid of the make-up tin) and you won't need too much of it. The more water you use, the runnier it is, and usually the grosser it is. Put water on your bigger brush, mix it into the paint until you get a build-up of creamy make-up. Proceed to paint on.

2. Your first few strokes will look streaky, as shown on the left cheek. You can get rid of this by continuing to paint over the area, again and again, until the streaks are gone. Note that if your paint is runnier, the streaks will be harder to get rid of. Use the sponge to wipe off any areas you need to fix.

Some areas you'll want to make thicker than others --- if you do an even coat everywhere, you'll strip your face of any and all definition. That is not cool for pictures.

AVOID THE AREA THAT WILL EVENTUALLY GO RED. GO RIGHT TO THE HAIRLINE, AND PAINT YOUR NECK. I'd suggest painting your ears on the off chance they show, but it's up to you to decide whether you want to be picking it out for the next few days. I also suggest going a bit into your nostrils. Don't cram it all the way up there, but trust me, your nostrils will look HUGE AND RED if you don't. GET YOUR LOWER EYELID BY LOOKING UP AND CAREFULLY PAINTING. Use a smaller brush if you have to.

Wait for it to dry.

3. Get your smaller brush and trace out the outline of the red. Make sure you get the arch UP about 3/5 of the way along your eyebrow and go right to the hairline. Follow the curve in on your nose. Do NOT go under your eye. Do NOT go straight out from the corner of the eye; curve up. If you've waited for the white to dry, it shouldn't go pink anywhere.

4. Fill in the eyelid, too. Close/lower your eyelids while you wait for it to dry properly. It only takes about a minute.

5. Time for the fun part. Get out your eyeliner and fill in your eyebrows, and continue up along the curve of the red. Go harsh. You're a funky kabuki geisha warrior chick!

6. Do your eyeliner, again with the liquid eyeliner. Go heavy on it, and do a cat's eye out along the red. I could have gone a lot more dramatic in that picture, there, and in hindsight I really should have. Then, if you WANT, put on some mascara.

7. Lips! You can use red lipstick if you want, but I like to match the colour to the eyes, so I use the paint. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH: paint the lower lip, WAIT FOR IT TO DRY, and THEN paint the top, and wait for that to dry. DO NOT let your lips touch while either is wet. Otherwise you are just going to much everything up and get a funky weird lip shape, and we want pretty lips.

Unpictured 8: if you're a goofball like me, clean the red off of your teeth. Also, WASH EVERYTHING.

Any questions?

This is great, I actually wanted to do thiss for a while.
And another thing, I love how blunt you were under 'what/why snazaroo?' 'To be honest, the only time I've ever had to touch it up was after making out, and that was just because the paint doesn't stay on lips very well.' haha.

Anyway, great tutorial!

this is a great tutorial! Thanks for the tips! My only question is, since you seem to know Snazaroo well, do you know if it comes off on clothing after it's dry? I used sort of expensive fabric for the costume that I'm making, and I'm really worried that facepaint on my neck might rub off onto the collar.

:icondangerousladies:

It's water-based, so it should come out of everything. I've yet to stain anything with it.

Whoo awesome! Lovely tutorial you have here~
I'll be cosplaying Suki in a few months, and although I'm not worried about the sewing at all, the make up had me a bit puzzled~
I've had plenty of recommendations from people about what sort to use (snazaroo has been mentionned and seems considerably cheaper than Ben Nye!), but it's nice to actually see it in action, doing what I'll need it to do!
...Now to actually ordering the stuff and making sure my face doesn't radiactively react to it.

Very nice :) Kryolan also works well for the eye makeup and a lot of their products are UV-reactive, so you'll turn a lot of heads if you were to, say, go to a dance club after Con. :D

I'm pretty sure you can also just use a glue stick.

Mmn no not really. I guess you can do that if you want a cheap way out and don't care about quality.

Actually a glue stick works really well, in some cases better than any traditional "eyebrow sealer". If you want to really get a flat surface, its best just to completely block out your brows(to get the same effect and plucking the hairs out) but for a one time makeup, I've found the glue stick trick actually works much better.

The only kind I've ever used was Model In A Bottle Eyebrow Sealer, and it worked fine. :) I need to find more, though...

Wonderful to see a tutorial!

I can also add, some people can be allergic to a specific pigment color, like red.

It is for that reason that not every red makeup can be used as eye shadow.

I have sensitive skin, would you happen to know whether or not it will make me break out in a rash? Like is it labeled "hypo-allergenic" or are there any kinds of "stage makeup" like this that you know of that are?

And thank you very much for this tutorial. :)

:icondangerousladies:
dangerousladies Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2008
It doesn't say that anywhere on the package, but that may be because I don't have the papers that went with them anymore.. On the website it states that Snazaroo is hypoallergenic, but they also say that "hypoallergenic" has little to no legal meaning; no company has to pass any test to slap that on their brand. If you go for it, I'd still suggest doing a skin patch test, if you can, just in case.

You're very welcome!

I know you said you didn't break out with this makeup and that's great, but I can answer why people break out with makeup in general if people are curious. It's when once you're brush touches your face and then goes back into the makeup, the bacteria from your face gets into the makeup. That's why you shouldn't ever share makeup and it's much more sanitary to use a palate and scoop out what makeup you'll use each time.

Nice makeup, btw! Good tutorial!

:icondangerousladies:
dangerousladies Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2008
Ahh, I did not know that! Thank you.

Also, though, I've alway heard/read that one reason why people break out is because pores are clogged and cannot breathe, or something along those lines. Because frankly, after wearing that cream make-up for only an hour(ish)? I broke out like CRAZY. It was horrific, and I say that as someone who usually doesn't break out at all.

Some make-up is just plain BAD for you.

I've heard that, it makes sense so I'm sure that's another reason.

Yeah, some just is. I prefer Ben Nye myself for stuff like this.

They have powders, cake, and oil based theatrical makeup. It's what we use at school and it works wonders for shows!
