Lengthening the Eyes

Unlike the innocent wide-eyed anime characters, it is typically the mature and arrogant male characters that are endowed with long and narrow eyes.  These are the characters that I most enjoy crossplaying since they inevitably are more attractive in their confidence. Below, we have outlined how to recreate the lengthened anime eyes when you cosplay.

You Will Need:

  • Grey Eyeshadow
  • Black Eyeliner
  • Brown Eyeshadow
  • Mascara
Apply a base of medium gray eyeshadow and blend the pigment into your skin.  If you apply silver eyeshadow, you will appear more bishonin.
Use black eyeliner to define the shape of your eye.  You will need to extend the outer edge and give it an angular shape, wrapping around to line halfway along your lower eyelid.
If the eyeliner is too bold, apply a small amount of brown eyeshadow to transition the black into the grey.
Apply a light coat of mascara to your bottom lashes only.
