Demon Hunter Look

First of all a big thanks to everyone who voted for me, I won the cosplay contest! I'm so happy and proud, thanks for helping me achieve this! I'm already dreaming of what costume I should do next, I think my enthusiasm for crafts really pays off in this hobby ;D

For the Demon Hunter cosplay, I naturally did a make-up look that I felt fit the character well. I did my regular base with BB-cream and powder, did some contouring with a grey-brown eyeshadow all over the face (the camera doesn't seem to pick it up very well). For the eyes I wanted a neutral smoky eye that would bring out my white contact lenses nicely but not look too made up. I chose a medium matte taupe from the Revealed palette by Coastal Scents, and darkened the crease with Doe-eyed by Concrete Minerals and brow bone accent is Sugarpill's Tako, a matte white. Very simple but effective! On top of those there's only black gel liner and mascara.

The lips are done with a Born Pretty matte long lasting lipstick that's very close to my natural lip shade. I wanted to define the lips but not make them look like there's actual lipstick on, because in pictures of the Demon Hunter she seems to have natural lips. I knew I needed some extra oomph for the stage as bright light would make my natural lips look too pale, so a matte natural shade it was.


The Demon Hunter has short dark hair, so I did black brows to match. This picture is taken after the contest, so the brows are a little bit faded because my hood was in the face and rubbing on them. I actually quite like the cropped simple hair on me, I think I'll use this wig again some day!





Here's a few shots taken before I put the contact lenses on. I only applied them at the convention venue, because they do obscure my sight a bit. Everything looks a bit misty when seen through the lenses, so I would not dream of putting on make-up with the lenses in place.
