Beauty: Fanime Makeup!

Last week was finals weeks, so I'm sure you all understand why I haven't been around.  But!  As grueling as juggling all my final projects was, it all ended with a really fun bang because last weekend was Fanimecon weekend.

What is Fanimecon?  It's a convention for diehard fans of anime and manga. (Japanese comic books and cartoons)  Yep yep.  I really got a chance to unleash the ultra-dork in me.  It was nice enjoying a fun-filled weekend amongst my kooky, goofy, geeky kindred.  Of course, Fanimecon wouldn't be half as fun without cosplay.

What's cosplay?  Dressing up like your favorite anime/manga/videogame characters.  Fanimecon weekend (which always takes place during Memorial Day weekend) is like 4 days of Halloween.  Of course, I took the easy way out by just wearing a pair of cat ears all weekend.  I'm very disappointed in myself.  Next year I'll go all out for sure!

I'll be posting some pictures from the convention, but in the meantime, I'll give you a sample of a makeup look I did for one of the days.  Enjoy!

Products used for this look:

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
Sonia Kashuk Teasing Teal Eyeshadow Duo (I only used the mint shade)
CoverGirl Liquiline Blast in Blue Boom
Wet N Wild Coloricon Palette in Blue Had Me At Hello (I only used the bright teal shade)
Prestige Liquid Glitter Precision Eyeliner in Starlit Black
Maybelline Full N Soft Waterproof Mascara in Black

Tada!  Here's me in "costume":


  1. Next year will be full of even more awesomeness.

    I was admiring your eyes at the convention!

  2. Thanks! :)

    Our group will be such a badass cosplay crew next year! Can't wait to start looking at costumes!
