We’re going to go ahead and call this “mouth cosplay”. After all, what Laura Jenkinson does is more than just makeup. Her expressions really sell the characters.

COVERGIRL may be a huge brand, but they aren’t afraid to think outside the box when it comes to makeup collections. You may recall that they partnered with Lionsgate to create a Hunger Games Capitol Collection.

Keeping up the trend, a new limited edition Star Wars: The Force Awakens makeup collection will arrive this fall that includes mascara, lip gloss, and nail polish.

There are also some cool hints about the new movie based on their six different cosmetic designs. They’re split into Dark Side (Apprentice, Stormtrooper, and Chrome) and The Light Within (Nomad, Droid, Sage). There are also collections for the Empress and Jedi.

The mascara comes in numbered tubes with different quotes from the Star Wars films printed on them (some of which appear to be from the upcoming movie). Hints abound and I can’t wait to see more.

Check it out after the break.

One of the problems with cosplaying a character that needs to be bloody is that it can stain everything. Japanese cosplay supplier Assist Wig has come up with something called “Whoosh! Blood (Gore that Rinses Off with Water)” which is a lot of words to describe a very cool product.

The fake blood dries in 20 to 30 minutes on your skin or on clothing and rinses off easily. Wash clothing like usual and it will be stain free.

Disney Style is all about Disney-inspired fashion. Their latest video is a time-lapse featuring a model being transformed into seven different princesses including Elsa, Belle, Snow White, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Ariel.

I can’t imagine how long hair and makeup actually took to complete, but the adorable morphing princess has a super cute and contagious smile throughout the entire process. And she totally pulls off every single princess perfectly.

Watch the super fun video after the break.

If you never had an interest in makeup, that will probably change after you check out the work of Lianne Moseley. The self-trained makeup artist makes her living doing standard work on brides and models, but recently began dedicating her free time and ample skill to transforming people into superheroes that literally look as if they just took a trip from the pages of a comic book into the third dimension. Needless to say, the internet quickly took notice, leading to the landing of her first professional gig at the beginning of the month.

The process is said to take several hours to complete, and as you will see in the additional examples after the jump, the results will make you think you’re looking at something created with Photoshop.

This is a case where the perfect cosplay for the character doesn’t require specific clothes, but specific makeup. Pinkstylist has turned himself from an ordinary man into the villain from Dragon Ball Z.

It can be a challenge for cosplayers to keep their carefully applied makeup looking fresh through a photoshoot, so Japanese company CosCos has created Liberta. They say that not only will it provide the perfect finish on camera, but that it won’t need to be constantly reapplied or touched-up.

It includes foundations, powders, lip concealer, and cleansing water. They’ve even developed the line with feedback from cosplayers, so this makeup could be just the thing for your next convention…if you live in Japan that is.
