I’m not all that great with makeup. I know, I know, women are supposed to know how to do that stuff, but I never really cared to do much more than stage makeup until I started playing around with cosplay.
I know I’m not alone in this, so I thought I’d share a variety of fun makeup tutorials. Obviously, some of these won’t be applicable for every day use, but they’re still a lot of fun to watch.
Pretty good, basic makeup tips. A lot of these could probably be applied to every day makeup, depending on the look you want.

This one’s rather impressive. It’s for male to female.

Makeup really is an art form, especially when its combined with costuming.
