Cosplay makeup: Contouring

Besides the ‘angry’ eyebrows, contouring is probably the other most important element to crossplay. 

Despite that this was just my random gpoy, I think it shows contouring pretty well.

Ok for a breakdown:

Omg, that looks hilarious.
I suggest to use a light brown matte eyeshadow with a bigger brush so it’s easier to blend. Start from the tips of your angry brows and move downwards to shade the sides of your nose. You may stop halfway and blend it out. For a more masculine look, contour your entire nose all the way down to the tip so your nose looks thinner and longer.
If you want an even more masculine look, use a blush brush and contour the sides of your cheek. Do so right under your cheek bone and be sure to blend it out! It should only be a slight streak of brown as too much will make you appear old!? 

Other cosplayer’s example:

This is aimed for crossplay. So for female cosplay, use light bronzing to add dimension; avoid this technique as this is for creating the illusion of a sharp and long face. Good luck, fellow cosplayers!
