Since Star Wars Celebration, I’ve had a number of requests about my Hera Syndulla make-up, so here is a quick (first ever) tutorial video of my process and products used.
Apologies for the iffy sound, my microphone was acting up!
When cosplaying Hera I always try to find the balance between her animated perfection and the realities of my distinctive facial shape. Rather than trying to directly translate her onto my face through extreme contouring, I try to focus on capturing the essence of her in a believable and relatable way. No skinny ’90’s brows for me!
This is a waterbased tutorial, as I’m not a fan of alcohol based, but I promise you that I managed to get 12+ hours of wear out of this each day at Star Wars Celebration. Beyond the base-make-up and sealer, I mostly use every day beauty make-up which makes this fairly easy to do on a budget or using make-up that you possibly already have. There is a full list of products below the video. Feel free to comment if you have any questions. Safe flying, Rebels!
