Kitsune by Manticore0313 Kitsune by Manticore0313
So this look was primarily influenced by the Japanese magical fox, the Kitsune. I'm told the Kitsune is pretty prevalent in Japanese anime, but I've just always been a fan of mythology, so I decided to give representing the Kitsune a shot. I was requested some time ago to do a Geisha-type makeup, so I opted for something very stylized that was more my speed, but still influenced by Japanese aesthetics like the makeup of Geisha and Kabuki.
(Fun fact: When you call to mind the 'typical' Geisha makeup, you're actually thinking of their apprentices, Maiko. Full-fledged Geisha only wear the heavy makeup for special ceremonies.)

You can also see the Demonstration for this video on my youtube channel, ManticoreMakeup. Here.

Products used:
Glue stick (for covering my brows)
Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk
White Powder
Old red liner
Red Shadow from the 252 Palette
Kryolan Aquacolor in Black
