So the process of putting together the cosplay you all voted for has definately been started. There are several elements of this that are concurrently being assembled and while things like shoes are proving to be crazy frustrating, the one thing that has really opened my eyes to what women deal with is the makeup. Let's break this down. This is the current list of things that I need. 

 

Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme

Bobbi Brown Corrector (this is basically light pink concealer)

Urban Decay All-Nighter Foundation (this is a foundation)

Kryolan Setting PowderMAC 214 Shader Brush

MAC Skinfinish Natural powders (for a VERY light blush). 

MAC 214 Shader Brush

MAC Omega eyeshadow 

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner

Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil (This is a eyeliner primer). 

Lip gloss and a very muted natural color lipstick. 

Brushes .... a metric fuck ton of brushes! You have a blush brush, a eyeshadow brush, a crease brush and things I have no idea what the hell they are for. 

Tweezers.

 

and this

That's an eyelash curler, and have always thought that these things looked like a medieval torture device. I make just up for fake lashes because I keep mentally visualizing my eye popping out. Nightmare fuel. Game over man, game over. So after ordering must of this I did grab one thing that I actually thought was pretty cool. You see, I have brown eyes. Trixie does not. So .... I ordered purple colored contacts!

I'm sorry but that is just freaking cool looking. So what is the take away from all of this? One, you all should understand now that I am all in on this. Two, even though I have been married to a women and have a daughter, I realized I never paid any attention to all the shit they put on their face over the years or how they did it. Those who will be rooming with me at BronyCon ... I am sorry but I will likely be in the bathroom for a while putting all this nonsense on. I may keep those contacts on after my time in the cosplay is over though. Purple is my favorite color and those are AMAAAAAZING.

...And this why I'm happy with waking up in the morning and leaving my face as is - a tired mess. Seriously speaking, I can respect those who have the patience to apply this stuff each day. I don't think I could handle one.

Looking forward to that cosplay.

Right! I mean, it takes me no time to shave and boom! Done. Watching makeup tutorials and asking my kid ... this whole painting your face concept is crazy.

I can shave, cut myself by accident, brush my teeth and get changed in less time than it would take to apply this stuff. 

This is just...madness :BornAgainBrony:.

If you need a quick an easy application of makeup, may I recommend Homer Simpson's makeup gun?

Spoiler

 

Also. Those contact lenses look amazing!

I can't remember, have you worn contacts before? non-prescription Color contacts are... more annoying than regular ones as they tend to be bigger and floppier. Practice with them a lot, with someone with you to help get them out if things go weird.
