So I was doing a makeup test for Asami Sato from Legend of Korra, and I thought it’d be interesting to see before/after pictures.
The makeup makes quite a difference right? I have on eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, highlighter, concealer, foundation, blush, bronzer, powder, lipgloss, and lipstick. I focused on achieving a dramatic, cat-eye like look, bold lips, thinner brows, and an angular face. I ended up liking the result, although there are a few changes I’d like to make.
When I actually do cosplay her (hopefully for Anime LA coming up very, very soon), I plan on wearing false eyelashes, assuming I can get them on, and making the purple eyeshadow brighter. Overall, I’m satisfied!
When wiping off my makeup, I decided to go Mulan style and took off only one side of my face. Strange to see what makeup can do to your appearance!
Last but not least, my Asami half-wig cam in the mail today! It’s so much more comfortable than a normal wig, so I’m thoroughly satisfied. For only $9, the quality is great and I’m glad with the choice I made. It’s a bit darker than my natural color, so I’ll either be dying my hair darker or just cleverly hiding my real hair. I opted for the half wig since my hair was already similar to Asami’s, and I though it’d be easier to deal with than a lace front since I could just style my own bangs to match her hairstyle.
Thanks for reading and God bless!
