FOTD - Makeup for my original Harley Quinn cosplay :)

Hi everyone, I am back from my first ever Dragon*Con! I had lots of fun and met many awesome people, but best of all I got to debut FIVE costumes. My favourite one is my Marie Antoinette-inspired Harley Quinn ballgown for my friend's Batman masquerade group. I will have photos of my full costumes from my photographer friends later, but here are two phone pics of my makeup after being in the costume (which includes a fully-boned overbust corset, wide-ass pannier, underskirt and dupioni silk overskirt) for almost 3 hours. I was wearing two pairs of false lashes, and one of them has red tinsel in it. I think the makeup turned out pretty awesome even though it took almost 2 hours to do. :)
