I’m a sucker for DBZ – and animes, really (by the way thank you Netflix for ruining my social life ^^) and when I was a child I was kinda in love with Vegeta. I don’t know why, ’cause he’s really always grumpy but I just had a thing for the prince of the fallen Saiyan race. Oh and I loved his voice (♥ω♥*)
Anyhow, my love for Vegeta and enthusiasm for makeup collided the other day and gave birth to one of the most fun makeups I’ve ever done ! The most fun part definitely was the dancing over Daft Punk “Get Lucky” while looking like Vegeta ^^… Can you picture it? (and yes I did film it. =D)
And now let’s take a look at the transformation process !
Step by Step
Can we all take a moment and reflect on my face on picture #3 and #4? lol thank you !
Be your natural, beautiful self =) and prep your skin for a 4 hour transformation. And if you think that’s too long try painting Kratos for 12 hours …
Block out your eyebrows with a gluestick and compact powder.
Glue Vegeta’s hair on your face (avoid hair, you’ll thank me later). Then make a face, because, why not?
Glue the ears and trust me, you’ll make the exact same face when you look at yourself in the mirror. Unless of course you already have the same ears … oops
With a white crayon draw the main areas of Vegeta : the angry mouth, the big (angry) eyes and eyebrows and the costume.
Then fill in the mouth and eyes with white water-activated paint or white oil paint (that you will set with white eyeshadow)
Fill in the eyebrows with black paint then set with black eyeshadow. For the pupil, I used the cap of an eyeliner that I covered in paint and applied on my fake eyes, half on the brow and half on the white part. If that makes sense, sorry me French =d
With a felter tip black eyeliner, outline the eyes
Ok so a lot happened between pic 6 and pic 7, sorry about that!
Before you do all the shading on Vegeta’s skin you want to add all the black lines that will make you look like a cartoon. Outline the mouth, add a line on the chin, give yourself a tiny anime nose, some wrinkles… Basically just use a reference photo and put all the lines you see, copy that?
Then with contouring powder you’re going to give your face some dimension. Use a dark brown for shading and then for highlighting I used a white oil paint by Mehron (clown white lite) and set it with loose powder.
Now that you’re done with the face you can move on to the costume part. Fill in the chest area with white oil paint. Leave out the straps, arms and neck, which will be gold and blue.
Paint your hand white (although you might want to do it at the very end so you don’t ruin your camera too much -_- speaking from experience)
Add a more cartoony style to your costume by doing what you did on your face : shading (use light grey and dark grey), highlighting (use white cream paint) ; for the straps I shaded the yellow paint with a mustard eyeshadow. Add all the black lines with a black eyeliner and that’s about it! =)
I know all you can actually think about is Vegeta dancing to ‘Get Lucky‘ and you’re dying to see it … so I won’t torture you any longer !
