Face It Later: Makeup

I already had a lot of makeup suitable for Lightning, but my order came this morning for the bits I didn't have - Lightning's makeup is very simple and basic, but the key will be changing the look of my face to suit her more triangular and flawless one! I will be following Alyson Tabbitha's tutorial closely, but using makeup available in the UK to save on cost. The makeup I will be using is: a number of shades from the Jeffree Star 'Blue Blood' palette; the Sedona Lace Contour & Highlight palette; Eylure natural lashes No.003; Collection's Shimmer Shade's blush palette in 'Blushalicious'; Natural Collection clear nail polish; Stila eyeliner pen in 'Intense Black'; Sleek lipliner in 'Friend Zone'; Natural Collection eyeliner in 'Soft Brown' and 'Brown'; Covergirl lip stain 445; Revolution concealer; NYX lipliner in 'Mauve'; e.l.f Flawless Eyeshadow palette in 'Beautiful Browns'; L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mega Volume mascara; Revlon foundation, and Natural Collection lip gloss in 'Antique Rose'. Once the wig is styled, I'll do a whole makeup test to see how it looks <3

Planning & Research

MCM London is barely over and I have already begun planning my next cosplay for May 2020 (to be fair, it's a Final Fantasy character, I'm gonna need all the time I can get lol). Before starting work on Lightning properly, I wanted to replay the game, paying close attention to her outfit as I go. Already, barely over an hour in to gameplay, I noticed that when her Gunblade is in sword form, her Gunblade sheath/holster disappears. I'm not sure just yet if I want to include that, especially if it isn't necessary, but I'm glad to know that it's no big deal if I end up not making it.
