As we all know, a lot of men(there are some women too) who do not find the idea of applying make-up a good one.
It's expensive, you don't know how to apply, you'd look ghei, and so on and so forth. There are tons of reasons that one can think of that would make you think that one does not need it.
Well, in all honesty, we don't need it. You would need to have a number of items to make you look better/different (whichever suits your fancy). Make-up, when accumulated, can cost up to a hefty sum of dough you have to cough up. To top it off, make-up expires! Why on earth would I want to spend X amount of cash for something that's perishable?!?!?!
The answer is very simple, I want it. I want it because it helps me bring myself closer to what my character looks like. I want it because you get a different kind of effect given the way you apply and what you use. You can transform in a few minutes with the right tools and sufficient skill.
I used to think that make-up was only meant for women and an absolute waste of time. All of that changed last year. Very good friends of mine introduced the power of make-up to me for my Mitsurugi cosplay. It did wonders especially because i am not gifted with a face that can be covered with facial hair.
I would like to take this opportunity to give my warmest gratitude to my make-up gurus, namely
- Yuu (Jaroukasama)
- Sese (Jehshil)
- Jin (Behindinfinity)
- Charmie (Yaoiangel)
- Sammy (Sami-san)
Without these fine ladies, I would have not been able to expand my character choices.
