Rea-l Mayer from Ergo Proxy Inspired Look

10.19.2010


I've been planning a number of Halloween looks but time is going by so fast :( But FINALLY I got one up!  It's a lot harder doing a makeup tutorial than I thought ^^;;  Anyway, I had SO much fun doing this!  I was planning on doing a nature inspired Halloween costume/look but when I started watching Ergo Proxy, I just had to do this first.

I really wish I had a gun. Or at least got the hand position right :P
It's a fairly simple inspired look because I don't want to do anything complex until I get a good grasp on how to record makeup tutorials but simple or not it's of a kick ass character - Re-l/Real/Rea-l Mayer of the anime Ergo Proxy.  Ergo Proxy is a fantastic anime btw, if you liked Serial Experiments Lain or the classic Neon Genesis Evangelion this is straight up your alley :)  It's very philosophical and dark - some may say pretentious but I like it a lot. The animation is gorgeous in Episode 1 but even though it kind of goes downhill afterwards, the moody ambiance is still there :)


Makeup used:
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation (Nude 40)
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow (Celestial Sapphire 450)
MAC Fluidline (Blacktrack)
Koji Dolly Wink Liquid Liner (Black)
Missha The Shining Style Stick Eyes (WH01 - White)
Revlon Fantasy Lengths False Lashes (91003 - Flirty)
Lioele Silky Highlighter BB Touch
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush/Bronzer Duo (Raisin Glow 50)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil (Zero)
Karess Krafters Chai Lip Balm
NYX Round Lipstick (525 Circe)

Other:
G&G GBT Grey Circle Lens

*whew* I haven't used this many things at once on my face in a long time.  My hair was being so annoying :P I couldn't get it pin-straight like Rea-l's...gahhh I love having long hair but there is just way too much of it x__X  I'm also kind of sick of curly hair, it's so much harder to manage.   Another thing that really frustrated me was how the quality of the vid is so low O_o so grainy...I guess that's what I get for using iSight :(  But at least my eyes look good :D the G&G GBT Greys are so purtyyyy~!!

I really hope you guys like this ^_^ I had a lot of fun putting it together.  This is the first time I've done a cosplay too so this makeup tutorial already has a special place in my heart~ I didn't take many pics of this look tho...I was so tuckered out by the time I'd finished recording -_-;; It took much longer than I thought, it's really one thing to put on makeup and quite another to do it while trying to record yourself >.< Not to mention the little buns kept coming loose....


The makeup looked a lot better on video I think - on camera and in real life it's pretty over the top (and I look like I've been punched in the face) ^^ But that's the point of a cosplay/costume right xD?

  12. This is awesome and you look super gorgeous! I wish I had this talent-- make up artists are always so commendable with their ability to transform.

  14. Really Really bold look! I totally understand what you said about taking a video while putting make up is totally different from just putting make up! I get so frustrated each time when I need to do eyeliner in my videos! I just CANT SEE what I am doing =)
