Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

Frozen Anna Tutorial ♪

I seriously couldn't thank all of you enough for the overwhelming support you guys gave for my Elsa tutorial: http://www.arisachow.com/2013/12/frozen-elsa-tutorial.html

700 over views (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ for the first time!
*Starts singing for the first time in forever* lol

If only i have the time and budget to make costumes like my all my previous cosplays but unfortunately i can't do this for a living because it's not a full time job but a hobby and i have to stress again for those who thinks making own costumes saves alot but not really, it is still very expensive because of our limited resources here in Malaysia ;_;

Any costume/ wig sponsors out there willing to do collaboration? There are so many character make ups i want to try out but it always feels incomplete when i don't have the proper wig to complete the look. And the policy of at least have the costume done before i do a costest then only it feels complete no?:-)

So i am just back to doing this stuff as a hobby when i need to find a more sustainable job to support my living expenditure (rental, food, transport..etc)
Talk about all the prices of things going up this year, it's not like we are getting a raise from our current jobs. Soon i can imagine bus and taxi fares will jack up another dollar :-/

When that happens i will be the first person to go on strike by walking or cycling if i have to. And i am not going to deal with shit like this just because i am the only one that can't seem to deal with this nonsense.
Life ain't all about just "dealing with it", i mean...we determine our own fate and to just give up so easily without a fight might as well just jump off building and die right? lol

In the color i wished for too *kyaaaaaaaa*

Since i can foresee this week is gonna be a busy week for me till next tuesday (wish me luck!) so i am just gonna make this a fast tutorial with my new brushes that i just got from Natta Cosme as a Christmas gift!
Thank you so much for granting my Christmas wish Natta Cosme ☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆

And you guys were just so sweet to include this lil gift with my parcel ♡ 
Which i happily devour it before the ants did, ohoho~

Natta Cosme team seems to be the only online selling beauty companies that takes considerably amount of effort to pack their goods and make sure it arrives at it's destination safely.  Seeing such a nicely wrapped parcel just makes my gloomy day more cheerful, thank you for being so thoughtful (✿´‿`)

Comes in a cute travel container as well<--sucker for cute stuff

These 2 are next on my wishlist when I've saved enough ╮(╯▽╰)╭
It's RM60 for the Cerro Qreen 10pcs brush set, can put on my 2014 wishlist, next to Sigma brushes XD lol at least wallet won't hurt so much.
If you guys are seriously out of ideas, here is what to get me XD *shameless*
Just joking k? lol 

Why would i even want this? Aside from it's pretty color, it's also because of the various type of material used for this particular set of brushes compared to the previous ones above :D
This is made from Goat's and Pony hair, so i wonder what is the application difference between animal hair and synthetic fiber.

Pretty Bustier *A* 

Now I am going to give these brushes a test run by doing another simple tutorial which is pretty similar to Elsa's but more natural looking.
Obviously you guys could have guessed from my instagram picture that I've posted a few days ago about that similar colored wig (Anna *coughs*)

I wouldn't say i suit any of the characters but glad i could at least give this make up a try and see how is the outcome, glad all succeeded (sort off) upon first attempt.
Now I itchy hand want to do costest for my favourite disney characters lol, will try when i have time la. Finally reliving my childhood days *shiawase*

Cosmetic Used:
  • Eyemazing Blusher (sweet pink)
  • Bibo Eyeful Eyeliner (White)
  • Heavy Rotation Coloring Eyebrow (02)
  • K-Palette Liquid Eyeliner
  • Heavy Rotation Powder Eyebrow & Nose Shadow-#02 Natural Brown
  • Eyemazing x Amoyamo lashes (No.820- Rocabilly)
  • Kiss Me HEAVY ROTATION Styling Lower Eyelash #06 Pure
  • Eyeshadow palette 

Bared face...so embarrassing lol

Start by Filling in your eyebrows with Heavy Rotation Coloring Eyebrow (02) as Anna is a red-head  or maybe preferred strawberry blonde with freckles.

My only guess that this color is the most similar for her character.  Be careful not to use too much force during application, wouldn't want you eyebrows to appear like two(2) bushy caterpillars lol.

Ignore the pimple one the left side of my eyes lol

Using my Sephora palette, i chose an pale-orangey shimmery gold shade for Anna since her look is pretty natural yet there is still a hint of eye shadow can be seen on her character design.

From this photo, the color is more accurate than the video. All shot with natural lighting via my Galaxy Samsung phone.

Eye shadow Application tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWGy6IMH8-s
Can't seem to upload it :-/  Maybe I will try again later.

Heavy Rotation Powder Eyebrow & Nose Shadow-#02 Natural Brown lightly use the middle shade to dab on some fake freckles, anyway if you want them more obvious you can use a brown pencil eyeliner.
Anna has more obvious freckles compared to Elsa because she is close to being a red-head, be generous but don't over dab the freckles or you might look like you have holes on your face >.<
But ever since I started this tutorial I am starting to love freckles even more!!

Next use a blusher brush and SMILE! Generously and gently blend the blush on the apples of your cheeks.I am using Eyemazing Blusher (sweet pink) and the blusher brush from Cerro Qreen set.

Moving on to the false lashes part, I've also include an application tutorial on how to apply your false lashes.
It's quite simple as Eyemazing eyelashes are easy to handle unlike those cheap pasar malam lashes.
Why this color? Based on the artwork I actually noticed that Elsa's and Anna's lashes are actually dark brown instead of black because they have lighter colored hair (?)

I decided to use black on Elsa to make her eye make up more dramatic, plus anyway the purple eyeshadow would have easily drowned the natural looking brown falsies.
For Anna's case, her look focuses more on her natural looks hence this choice seems more suitable.
But at the end of the day it's a matter of preference . 

Eyemazing x Amoyamo lashes (No.820- Rocabilly)

Watch this video on how to apply false lashes. 
Don't forget to stick the Kiss Me HEAVY ROTATION Styling Lower Eyelash #06 Pure too.

Use the white eyeliner pencil to fill in the outer corners of your tear duct as an extended eyeball section. Then finish up with a pink lip gloss, I am using Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pure Color Gloss #01 Dolly Pink.

Finally put on your wig and costume (which i obviously don't have), you are ready to parade around as Princess Anna of Arendelle.
But don't marry a total stranger okay? :D

The only clear photo i managed to took, also edited the lighting abit because it was too dark >.<
That's what happens when you don't have proper equipments to do stuff like these. 

Same angle, cuz that's the only angle I look Anna-ish I guess? :-P


P/S: Some dim lighting and not so sharp photos from my front camera creates awesome illusions =w=b blur photos ftw! Lol. But can't see my freckles though :-(

 Overall i personally think these Cerro Qreen brushes are superb! Never knew synthetic brushes could slide so easily for eye shadow and blusher application.
Oh and another great discovery that Natta Cosme also carries the brands that i always use in my make up tutorials such as J Pop Corner, Kiss Me, Heavy Rotation and many more (´∀`)♡

You will also enjoy free shipping if you purchase more than RM 70.

*All J Pop Corner & Kiss Me Cosmetics are available at selected Watsons Outlets.
