Attack on Titan Levi Ackerman Makeup Tutorial

Hello every one of the cosplay community! I am Ally, better known as Unexpected Link Cosplay, and I am here to show you how to become the rough and tough Corporal Levi & Ackerman from Attack on Titan!

Before we start, you will need;

  • Cleanser
  • Plenty of cotton swabs
  • A variety of makeup brushes and Blending Sponge
  • Eyebrow Brush
  • Glue
  • Pallet of eye shadow (mostly blacks and browns)
  • Foundation or Concealer
  • Eyeliner- Liquid or Pencil- I use both (BLACK and WHITE; but white is optional)
  • Loose or Compact powder

Face Prep

Always prep your face! It is helpful later on, plus it feels all nice if you do! I use Clinique Clarifying Lotion. I put this all over my face and EYEBROWS!

Eyebrows

Now this is definitely the hardest part. After two to three years of cosplaying, I still have difficulties with blocking out my eyebrows. It is a trial and error process; so be patient!

Repeat these steps 2-4 times, depending on how thick your brows are. Here is a reference video that it goes VERY in depth on how to do it.

When you are finished, they should look like this:
