YouTuber Pip Simon, a.k.a. Geek On Your Sleeve, shares makeup how-tos for cosplay, and her latest video shows off how to create a look for Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect. She made the bases of the prosthetics from foil and goes through the process of transforming her face step-by-step. She also gives important helpful tips that I don’t always think about – like a reminder to buy straws so you can actually drink beverages once the makeup is finished. The Garrus makeup takes a long time to apply, so if you plan to dress as the character more than once, you should probably consider a mask option.
