Tifa Lockhart Make-Up Tutorial by CrystalMoonlight1 Tifa Lockhart Make-Up Tutorial by CrystalMoonlight1
Okay, guys. Thank you for the votes and it seems like you wanted Tifa to do a make-up tutorial for you ^_^ Congrats to Tifa!!!

I know this is too long for you but I just wanted to show what products I used for my Tifa Cosplay. False lashes is optional.

If you want any specific make-up that I used, then you can ask ^.^

heheh... you can see that I put the "lipstick" picture twice ^^; I'm sorry about that o.o And I noticed other errors as well... >__<

Good luck and have fun cosplaying as Tifa!! :heart:

Good job on this! I don't want to get involved with whatever conflict you've got going on with the people who commented below, but I think this really does make you look like Tifa, so good job! :iconclapplz: Honestly, I should have looked this up before I cosplayed Tifa at Otakon this past summer, but if I ever decide to cosplay her again, this'll really help.

Besides! Who needs talent and effort when you can be flattered by endless amounts of strangers who would be excited at a picture of your sock for all they care. Add a fuckton of photoshop to the real pictures and nobody will secondguess your beautiful face... or whatever we're looking at. I mean come on the audience is drawn in by the incredible looks of a half assed cosplay but they stick around for the comedy that is 20 panels of the exact same face with different dialogue and no punchline, mirite?! Keep being classy and "showing" people how to live up to your standards! Remember, as long as there are lonely fanboys, there will be people who deeply appreciate the lack of effort you put in as the 'model' you are!

Ma'am do not be deceived by his trickery! What he means to say is you are talentless but asian fanboys love asians and things with boobs. They say nice things about your work despite you not actually being a good cosplayer (like your orihime pictures). And that your comics are 20 frames long, you have one facial expression, and the "punchline" has nothing to do with the last 2 hours of reading we had to do....or funny. You try to "teach" cosplayers how to be better but can't take advice on how to better yourself and dear god you need it before you can tell other cosplayers how to be better. The only reason everyone says you are good is because you're an asian with boobs...not because you're good. Since there are so many desperate boys out there you can use deviantart (ART!!!) as your own facebook....its not...its for art....real art....like my chiseled visage.

Commander Justice you Justice Commander! You foiled my plot! I figured she could actually figure a blatant insult out for herself without needing it explained! I mean what are the odds 2 people with strikingly similar names bombarded her with a wall of text larger than any she would receive because of the short attention span of her audience at the same time! NYEH!

Very nice tutorial ^_^ I hope you don't mind me giving a few tips though~ I'm by no means an expert in make-up, but I know a thing or two with years of experience in cosplay and a few modeling gigs.

First of all, don't be afraid to put a bit more foundation and powder on~ You might be going for a light, dewy look and it is nice, but it kind of defeats the purpose of the powder ^^; I'm not saying cake it on, but a decent amount looks good on photos, and we are going for Tifa's flawless pale skin after all :)

Next, it seems your eyebrows did not get some love~ If you don't have an eyebrow pencil, eye shadow works just fine too! Just fill it in lightly using an angled brush, following the natural shape of your brows. If you're afraid of it looking too heavy, fill it in with a lighter color. Then highlight your brow bone with a light colored eye shadow. The brows frame the face and it really does make a difference!

Lastly, I noticed you have two panels for applying lipstick. Try blotting off some lipstick with a tissue before applying a new layer. This will make the color more vivid and longer-lasting~

I hope this helps! I'm not saying you should do these, just something you might want to try =) Good luck!

My skin tone is not light like Tifa's, but I wish though. I dont want to use too much foundation because "less is more." The lighting in the camera can be deceiving.
I appreciate your tips but I dont have to use that much effort into make-up especially on hot days. I am no expert on this, either but I just do on what I just learned and have fun with it.
Yes, there are some errors in my panels like i said in my description.
Plus, I never knew you would see my comic strips, Jo ^^;

Really? ^^; You're my friend in most of my accounts, it's hard to miss your stuff~

It's good to have fun with it, but it's also good to know a little more especially when you're teaching other people, right? =) And since you made this tutorial, I can see that you are putting in the effort. :aww: My tips are generally for photoshoots, it is true that makeup should be applied accordingly. And I agree that lighting can definitely be deceiving as it washes out colors and you'll seem like you're not wearing any make-up if you don't put enough, so your efforts are kinda wasted. ^^;

Also, it would help if you explained why you did those steps. For example, we contour the nose because Tifa has a small, sharp nose, etc. So it's a specific Tifa makeup tutorial :aww: These are worth a watch if you haven't seen them already: [link] and [link]

I'm pretty certain that people missed you and your stuff as well since you've been away from DA for a very large amount of time.
As much as I appreciate your help, I would like to this my way :)

I dont want to waste time explaining things like that when people already know what Tifa looks like. As long as people can follow the steps, they will be okay. Its like getting right to the point. Believe me, I am no make-up guru but i did my best to show everyone that I can teach them that they can portray their favorite characters with some certain make-up. I'm trying to be careful not to "copy" anyone's tutorials. For my panels, its not professional and yes, u cant see that much colors. Its generally for those who wants to cosplay as Tifa. If they dont like it, then its fine. There's always other ones to look at.

And I already watched them along time ago.
