Boy vs Girl Cosplay Makeup Tutorial by Yume-ka Boy vs Girl Cosplay Makeup Tutorial by Yume-ka
**EDIT: Fixed a few things and added more explanations

More clarification: This tutorial will NOT work for everyone, especially if you are Caucasian. This works well for me and you will need to experiment to find out if it works for you as well. Tweek it accordingly, you don't have to follow everything I say! I'm no makeup guru, but hopefully this acts as a starting point ;)

---------
In order to bring you this hopefully helpful tutorial, I'm letting you all see my makeupless face :iconinglipplz:

This tutorial doesn't go into a lot of details on HOW to put on makeup, but just outlines the steps needed to achieve a basic girly or manly look. There's tons of videos that teaches you how to put on makeup so I'm not gonna go into detail about that. Hopefully this will still be helpful, I find male makeup the hardest so maybe this will help in comparing the differences between girly vs manly makeup ;)

Also, I didn't list any of the makeup I used. I don't find it important since different people have different preferences and some work better than others with their type of skin. My makeup supplies don't tend to be on expensive side but they work for me ;)

Btw, I look really weird with different makeup on both sides on my face, I was laughing towards the end lol.

Excuse the poor lighting and crappy picture quality, I only had my camera phone with me >__>

Questions? Clarifications? Suggestions? Comment plz! =)

This is pretty cool, I wouldn't have guessed the two final pictures were the same person if I hadn't seen the process. I'm still trying to decide if I should do all this as a base before making myself hella pale for my L cosplay xD

I have oily skin so after a few hours, my face starts to look a bit shiny. How can I fix this?

do you have to have an eyebrow pencil? can't you use eliner pencil for your eyebrows?

eyeliner pencil is soft and goes on a lot darker than eyebrow pencil.  Eyebrow pencil is hard and designed for use on eyebrows.  But if you don't want to get one, you can also fill it in with eyeshadow =)

This tutorial is really amazing, and I want to thank you about how clear it is! I'm going to be cosplaying for the first time, and I'm kind of worried about looking like or a clown or looking washed out. I really want to look my best, and it's so lucky that I even look like the character I'm going to dress up as.

I do have a question though? Do you know about Hetalia? Of course you know, Hetalia is one of the best anime series there is! I hope you know about it... Anyway, I'm going to be cosplaying as China, who kind of looks like a girl to me. He just does. I'm a girl, and we kind of look alike. Does that mean I use the girl side? I think I should, but I'm not sure.

I think you can use girlier makeup, just be careful not to use big eyelashes, use more natural ones.

Thank you, I plan on dressing as a boy sometime soon, but I don't have eyebrows thanks to my OCD. So this helped me a bit to figure out how to make slightly more masculine eyebrows. :)

I tested it out today, I think it really depends on the type of face composition. I tried using the eyeliner but it didnt look quite right. Somehow I confuse people into thinking I'm the opposite gender without it. I have a picture of myself after I used your tutorial, I hope I did it right. This is one of my first times ever using makeup

Would you still use the white eyeliner under the whole waterline for an African-american like myself? This is in the case of the female makeup.

I would try just a little bit at the inner corner first. The white may or may not stand out too much. Give it a try though and see how it look =)

you say especially if you are Caucasian, but what about already tomboyish girls from that background... I've got a round face but I've been mistaken for a guy before

Hmm, try it out and see how it looks! Skip the eyelid glue/fake crease step and use brown eyeliner if black is too contrasted on your skin =) Hope that helps!
