LITTEN MAKEUP TUTORIAL | Pokemon Sun & Moon Cosplay Makeup


Hey guys! As you can probably tell by the title of this
video, we are finally diving into the world of Pokemon
Sun and Moon. Finally, right? I know, I know. We are kicking off this little mini series with
the cutest lil fire cat ever, Litten! *Litten cry* Let’s jump into it starting with contacts. I’m going to go with these big black circle
lenses, but ya got tons of options here. The most accurate if you were doing a Litten
cosplay would probs be this kind of yellow cat eye
lens, but I will warn you. Most costume contacts constantly rotate around
in your eyes when you blink, so if there is a design on them, like the cat eye or like this fire design, that cool design will probably turn sideways
before too long which is probably not the look you’re going
for. Cool for photos. Not very cool IRL. This fire design is better in my opinion because
it goes all the way around and ya can’t, like, tell if it’s like upside
down, ya know? Or you could just stick with solid colors red, yellow, grey, or black, like I’m wearing. There is no wrong choice! Okay let’s finally do some makeup, shall we? I am starting by getting my face all super
hydrated with Tarte’s Drink of H2O Hydrating gel…stuff… and then it’s on to foundation. I use L’Oreal Pro Glow foundation and NYX’s
HD Concealer to get my face all ready to go. This wouldn’t be a Litten look without it’s
little signature pattern on ya forehead. You could just draw one on with a little bit
of orange body paint, but I wanted to give you guys a little something
extra today. So we’re gonna make a super easy and quick
DIY face appliance using these materials here. To make it, I just start by folding over a
few sheets of toilet paper until it’s about the thickness that I want
it to be and then I sketch the design and cut it out. Because this appliance will go on my forehead
which is a relatively flat area, I can create this piece on wax paper and then transfer
it to my head later. So to start off, I’m just going to put down
a layer of liquid latex with a disposable sponge, and then dropping in one sheet of my little
Litten forehead shaped toilet paper, and then adding a generous layer of liquid
latex over top of that. Repeat and repeat until it’s as thick as you
want it to be. If you are making an appliance that you want
to blend seamlessly into your skin, definitely pay special attention to keeping
your edges super super thin. It’ll make application way easier. But for the style of this particular piece,
I want the edges thick and elevated. So after the latex is completely dried, I
powder it, peel it off the wax paper, and cut off all of the excess latex around
the shape to get thick, clean edges. To apply the piece, I just put some spirit
gum on the back side of it, wait for the spirit gum to get tacky, and then using my nose as a guide for where
to put it, I stick it to my head. Just follow your face. You can just totally eyeball this, by the
way. Eeeh, that’s close enough. Sooo my brows. My super straight brows are inspired by the
straight, sharp shape… sharp shape… of Litten’s eyeballs. I sketch them out and start filling them in
with NYX’s Micro Brow pencil in black. Of course, if you want to, you could block out the tail of your eyebrow- This, like, hanging down a little bit – if you have really dark brows or if it bothers
you. Mine are lightish enough and don’t really
bother me at all so I’m just going to leave them. But I do block my brows in a few of my other
tutorials, so I’ll link those videos if you want some
tips on how to do that. Now using Sigma’s gel liner, we are going
to define and darken up these bad boys. I start on the outside of my brows and work
my way in, all with just one dip of product on my brush. So by the time I get to the inside of my brow,
there’s very little product left on my brush and the result is that it gets gradually lighter. For the eyeshadow, I am going to be using mostly the Covershot
palette in Bold, but I am actually going to grab this shade
from the Covershot palette in Ablaze because it’s a warmer neutral than the highlight
color in the Bold palette. So after I lay that all over my lid as a base,
it’s time to start adding those brights. I start with yellow on my inner corners and
work my way through orange and into red. I drag the red shadow way out to create a
big red wing that comes out preeetty far from the eye. And then to define the wing and make it all
sharp and clean, I put some concealer on a small brush and
carve out the shape of that wing. So satisfying! Yesss. So now on top of that, I will add some eyeliner. A big, giant wing. Like… giant. Massive. Then I add a little inner point which is basically
like a reversed wing. Like i’ll bring it down and in instead of
up and out. Does that make sense? I hope so. And then for my lower lid shadows, I’m going to be using the same colors as before
but in the opposition direction. So instead of yellow, orange, red, now we are doing red, orange, yellow. I add some black eyeliner along my waterline and I also smudge it out down onto the lower
lid. The way that I work with the Jumbo Eye Pencil
is almost always with my fingers. I think the formula plus finger work really
well together. Mascara and lashes, of course… Okay now we are going to jump over to the
cheeks for a second. I know I am going to be wearing a short wig, and one thing that helps short hair look more
flattering on ya head is defining and sharpening up those facial
features, so I am just really gonna jump in there with
bronzer, shape up those cheekbones, contour up around my temples, forehead, and
jaw line. Pretty much, just contour everything. Contour it all. And then I am also going to add in a warm
highlight since like.. fire… and stuff. I am using Benefit’s Sun Beam highlight for
this. It’s a liquid so I paint it right into my
skin and then just tap it to blend it in with my finger. Time for the lips which I think is probably
my favorite part of this whole look. I am going for like a glam punk boystyle kinda
thing. So I am starting with a warm nude shade for
my lips and then adding a bright orange color to just
the center. This style is perfect to tie in the ultra
trendy faux lip ring thing that’s been making the rounds for a while
now. I am going to be using two of Smashbox’s Be
Legendary metallics. I start with Haterade, which is kinda like
the coppery one. And then to add some depth and realism, I
add a thinner highlight of the even brighter, reflective color “Petal Metal” to catch the
light shining off of our faux lip ring. To tie the colors of this faux lip ring into
the eye look, I am adding a metallic highlight detail along
my eyeliner. This is NYX’s LOTD in Gem, which is a pretty dang close color match
to Smashbox’s Petal Metal. I use it to add a line under my wing and following
along the inner corner points. Then after bringing in these metallics in, I got really pumped on glam side and decided
some gold bedazzles could look really cool with it. So in true Alexa form, I used spirit gum to stick some gold jewels
to my face. As I do. All the time. So you probably thought that I forgot about that
forehead piece that’s been stuck to my head this whole entire
time. I haven’t! It’s finally time to paint it now. So, using Kryolan’s aqua paints, I base it
out with orange and then add yellow to the middle. You could definitely add some more highlighting
and shading to this if you want, but I decided to follow more closely to the
Pokemon art style here, keeping it just these two colors. To bring it together with the rest of the
look and to add a little bit of Alexa flair, I add some bedazzles down the center of the
forehead piece to finish off the makeup. And all we have left now is our little fire
wig. This is the Sassi Short collection from Rockstar
Wigs in Screaming Crimson which is the perfect color combo for any fire
look or cosplay. They have it in different lengths too, like the Triflect collection that I wore in
my Charmander tutorial way back in the day, um, so if you don’t like short hair on yourself, you’ve got some other options out there too
when it comes to fire hair. Topping it off with a custom hat featuring
the fire Z Crystal [trying to pronounce: “Firium”] Fire-ium? Fireum? Feerium? Dunno? Never learned how to say that. And a Pokeball of course, paired with my Litten tee from Living Dead
Clothing or if it’s cold you could always bust out
an adorable little Litten scarf like this one from Pixielated. He’s so cute. And we’ve got ourselves a pretty solid Litten
casual cosplay or you know, like, just a Litten-inspired

Litten. I love it. And that’s it, you guys! That’s it for today’s video! I hope you guys had fun today! This one was so much fun to make. Give this video a thumbs up to let me know if you guys want to see more
