Next, we will explain each part in detail.
Bright porcelain skin without pores like a doll
・First of all, moisturize well
The important thing here is to make sure that you are properly hydrated . If you use too much milky lotion or cream with a lot of "oil" as a moisturizer, it will separate or crumble easily when you apply the base or foundation, so let the lotion, which is water, penetrate the skin thoroughly.
・ Aiming for poreless porcelain skin
Pottery skin is not made by thickly applying foundation.
The key is to cover pores, skin unevenness and color unevenness with a base, and not to apply a thick layer of foundation .
Apply a tone-up base that can cover pores over the entire face.
After that, we will use a control color that matches your skin concerns. Here is another color for your worries.
redness → green
Yellow skin → purple, blue ( purple is recommended for beginners!)
Apply evenly from the center to the outside. After that, apply foundation, so be careful not to apply too thick a layer. It will cause collapse.

From the center to the outside in the same way as the groundwork. Carefully apply even the hard-to-apply areas around the nostrils. At the end, lightly blend with a sponge and remove excess foundation to prevent it from crumbling. You can also use a brush to add air while applying it gently ◎
Use only the parts that were not covered by the foundation. The solid type adheres tightly to the skin, so it has high coverage, but it is characterized by being easy to dry. Liquid concealer is recommended for those who are concerned about dryness around the eyes and mouth.
Finally, put powder on the same matte finish as the foundation for a smooth finish. At this time, if you use a puff, the powder will stick too much and it will look thicker, so use a brush to lightly apply it for a natural finish.
Gothic Lolita makeup with three-dimensional and clear features like a doll. Nose shadow is especially important to emphasize the eyes. First, apply along the crease of the eyebrow. At this time, if you blend the eyebrows together, the eyebrows will be finished naturally. Next, apply it along the bridge of the nose to the bottom of the eyes, and then apply it to the hollows of both nostrils in a U shape. Finally, add highlights from the lowest point of the nose to the highest point of the nose to complete a three-dimensional and deeply sculpted nose.
In addition, according to the troubles of the face, shading and highlights are also added to the entire face to make it more three-dimensional and sharp, making it closer to a doll face.
Mysterious and dark cute eye makeup
Emphasize the eyes by using a bright color such as black or red . If you just make the color darker , the impression will be flat without a three-dimensional effect. .
Also, in the case of cute gothic lolita makeup that is easy to use everyday with a strong “Lolita” element, add shadows under the eyes, make eye bags with white or beige pearls, and dark red or black eye shadow on the outer corner of the eyes. put At this time, if you draw the shadows under the eyes darker than usual, it will give a dark impression, giving it a Gothic Lolita look.
Gothic Lolita makeup, which gives a cool and special feeling with a strong "Gothic" element, puts a dark red or black matte shadow on the eyelids so that you think it's overdone. In particular, by applying a dark and wide gradation on the outer corner of the eye and creating a clear gradation toward the inner corner of the eye, the eyes will be emphasized and the face will have a three-dimensional effect. The more artistic and artistic the finish, the stronger the gothic elements.

Volume is important to give a doll feeling. Apply volumizing mascara on top and bottom. False eyelashes are recommended. Choose one that emphasizes volume and cut it to the width of your eyes. If you don't have many lower lashes, you can add a little eyeliner ◎
《Color contact lens》
Colored contact lenses are a must to create beautiful doll eyes. Blue, gray, and beige colored contact lenses are recommended because they create dolly eyes like those of a French doll. Even if you emphasize mysterious and impressive eyes with a vivid color that you don't usually use ◎
Eyebrows near the eyes. You want to emphasize your eyes, so use eyebrows sparingly. Let's draw naturally to complement the eye makeup with a color that matches the thin hair color like a Western doll.
Dark lip full of fashion
Apply a dark red , purple , or black lipstick with a matte color. Since it is a clear color, it is recommended to draw the outline with a lip pencil or the like before painting, as it will give a three-dimensional and beautiful finish without failure.
