Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan Makeup

Went shopping with my dude yesterday and being an anime lover,
he dragged me over to the Animangaki Convention in Sunway Pyramid Convention Center. 

The cosplays were meh, but we saw one of the girls wearing a Japanese 'sailor' school uniform with the mask of Colossal Titan from Shingeki no Kyojin a.k.a Attack On Titan. (wtf?)
My dude said "if someone could do make up of that look, it'll be quite epic" (paraphrased)
and 2 words popped up in my head:


So after I got home, I decided to try out the look. 
If you don't know how the Colossal Titan looks like, the reference is at the end of the post. 

The before titan look.

Making the parts that are supposed to be white brighter with BB cream. 

 Smear it and blend it. 

Roughly mark out the lines for the white and red sections. 
I used a liquid eyeliner. 
You can use anything else as long as you can clearly see the lines and know the separation for colours. 
 Refer to the pictures to know where the tendons and muscles go.

 Added white eyeshadow for the white parts. 
Not too obvious but it doesn't really matter because once the red goes on,
the contrast would be obvious enough. 

Smeared lipstick all the parts that are supposed to be red.

Smudge it out to fill in the blank parts.
Don't forget to leave a part at the cheeks for the teeth on the sides. 

Draw in the teeth. Fill in the gaps that are not supposed to be teeth with more lipstick.
The teeth are in one straight line so just draw a straight horizontal line and draw bows on top and below it,
which should align.

Add on more details to the lines and make the "lining" of the red part darker,
blending the lines with the lipstick for the shadowing.
I used a copious amount of gel liner for easier blending.
Drew some of the lines with brown eyeshadow too.

As for the brush, I used a lip brush and angle brush.

And finally, draw in the rest of the details.
Pay more attention to the tendons. They should be in a very thin line, but since I don't have the correct tools, this will do. And by this time, I was pretty darn lazy to add in too many details.

I think I kinda look like Darth Maul.
Next project maybe. =X

I modified the teeth part so that it looks flatter and better. The one on top looks like the titan needs braces. 
So, here's the end look,
and how the titan would look like if it had hair.

Can? Can? Pass? 

It's ok if you make mistakes.
Through out this whole make up test I wiped off a lot of make up and redid parts by parts.
Just don't lose patience and clear everything off.

I don't recommend using lipstick because it comes off very easily.
Since it's an impromptu thing, I just used whatever I have, which is basic make up items like:
White eyeshadow
Liquid liner
Gel liner
Angle brush
Lip brush

I suggest you use face paint as it's probably easier.

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
