So, EDI's make-up... How do you go from pink human face to silver robot face? Well it's not too hard or expensive but you'll need about 30 minutes and a handful of products.
|I took this after I applied my make up so I'd already tossed my sponge.|
First and foremost gather your products. I actually would suggest just having a set of brushes and case which then belong to EDI otherwise you'll have to thoroughly clean then every time.
1) Silver Eyeliner (I use the Ulta brand, it's okay)
2) Snazaroo Face Paint in either White (what I prefer), Silver or Grey and a sponge and water
3) Platinum Eye Shadow and Face Brush (Covergirl's Silver Lining is my fav)
4) Black Eyeliner
5) Brow Gel (I use clear)
6) Mid Grey Eye Shadow and Eye Shadow Brush (I use Jordana in Gunmetal)
7) Silver Lipstick and Lip Brush (I use Morgana Cryptoria's Silver Witch but it's discontinued)
8) Ben Nye Final Seal
9) Black Mascara (I prefer Maybelline's Falsies but I had this open. Use something which really gives you big long lashes)
Then wash and moisturize your face then line your waterline with silver. (I didn't take a pic as I don't put basically no make up pics online).
|Spoiler alert: I have hella bitchy resting face. I'm actually quite happy with life this morning.|
Cover your whole face with the Snazaroo, I prefer white as a base as then it matches the silver metallic material in my outfit. Grey or Silver also work, Grey give a much darker look (so if your silver is backed by black this would be good) and Silver is middle of the road. Stipple it on with a damp make up sponge, try and get it as even as possible but as you can see here it can be a liiiittle blotchy (which white has probs with). Also from this point on try not to emote. Until the Final Seal is dried you don't want to crease any part of your face if possible.
Next up is dusting the Silver/Platinum eye shadow all over your face. Pretend you're putting on a thick layer of loose powder. If you wanted you could throw on a layer of transparent loose powder (the Ben Nye one works wonderfully) after the next step if you have worries about your face getting oily or sweaty.
There's actually a lot of steps shown in this pic since I took pics by product. This is the middle grey eye shadow level. Use this to fill in your brows (and tame said brows with brow gel if needed), then cover your eye lids (but not the part between the eyelid and the brow bone). I kind of smoke it since I've already got that platinum by the brow bone. Lastly use it to contour your face/as a blush. This is going to be different for every person but since I have a baby face I swipe it under my cheekbones at a downward angle and dust the underside of my chin as well using the face brush. Remember for contouring to use a light hand, you can build it up but it's a pain to fix it (basically dust more platinum over to fix it).
Lipstick, use a lip brush it really makes getting a nice edge much easier and since it's such an extreme color difference that matters.
Eyeliner! She has a thick winged look. I prefer pencil but liquid would also work.
Final Seal. No pic here since you can't see it. Just mist it over your face. It stings a little and is rather minty but it dries after 3-5 minutes. So maybe take a sit and listen to some nice music.
Mascara I do after Final Seal since I don't use waterproof.
And then ta-da! We're done!
