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.

At first glance you would swear this is a baby seal, but it’s actually professional makeup artist Maria Malone-Guerbaa. She created these looks with makeup alone and no prosthetics. It’s hard to believe until you see the videos where she opens her very human eyes in these very animal faces.

This nightmare inducing image features redditor Manatee94 in a terrifying visage of her own creation. Unbelievably, she’s only been working on face painting since Halloween. Seriously, I will be sleeping with the lights on for a month because of this.

horror story makeup

Makeup artist Jan Bonito resides in Colorado and his skills are truly mind blowing. He’s used nothing but makeup to become the characters from American Horror Story: Freak Show and the results are so good it’s creepy. It’s not just that show either, as he’s got Lana Del Rey and others in the mix, too. He shows you exactly how he achieves each look and even has walkthroughs so you can give it a try.

steampunk nails

If you’d like to add some steampunk flair to your life without donning Victorian attire and adding brass, you could simply apply the theme to your nails.

Actually, there isn’t anything simple about this steampunk nail art by Simone Gilbert. It features an intricate floral design paired with embellishments like goggles, gears, clock hands, and even a tiny corset. Color me impressed.

halloween lips 6

Halloween is only a few weeks away, and that means it’s time to carve pumpkins and figure out costumes. If you don’t want to mess with pulling together a head to toe outfit this year, you can just dress up your eyes or your lips.

Makeup artist Eva Senín Pernas has some gorgeous examples of lip art creations that are themed for the holidays. She’s painted lips to look like a Jack O’Lantern, a witch, cats in a graveyard, and more. I’m amazed by how much detail she can include in such a small amount of space.
