Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 6.18.53 PM.png

All this Pokemon Go hype put me in a Pokemon mood. For this week I did a tutorial for my Pikachu Cosplay. (This is my first ever makeup tutorial so its not perfect I’ve also been breaking out a lot but I really wanted to put this out there I hope you all enjoy). Head below for the video.

If you don’t want to watch the video, down below is a walkthrough of the process.

On my lid I used the NYX Primal Colors in ‘Hot Yellow’ ($5), its super pigmented and I love it.

I used a black from the BH Cosmetics 120 Palette’s First Edition ($16) for my crease, I also used a red from the palette for my inner corner.

I blended out the black using the ‘Highlight’ Color from the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour ‘Sage’ ($26)

On my lashes I used the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and the Ardell Demi Wispies.

For the Pikachu cheeks I used Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in ‘Silhouette,’ which they don’t sell anymore but ‘Creeper’ is very similar to it ($6).

I recently wore this cosplay for AnimeNEXT last month. I had a lot of fun at the con, it was my first ever anime convention and first ever convention I went to that wasn’t in New York City. Here are some photos that were taken of me that day. If you want the full cosplay walkthrough click here.
