Big Anime Eyes
Anime is the shortened term for animation and now refers to a popular style of Japanese animation.
Another term you'll hear often is manga. Manga is a reference to Japanese comics which have become popular around the world.
There are many different types of anime and manga aimed at different audiences from children, teen boys, teen girls, or young adults:
- Shonen manga is targeted to boys ages 10 and up.
- Shojo manga is targeted to girls between 10 and 18.
- Seinen mange is marketed to older males between 18 and 30.
- Josei manga is created by women for the teenage and young adult female audience.
Shojo manga - which focuses strongly on human emotions and romantic relationships - generally contains anime with the now well-known big eyes.
Costume Play - frequently referred to as cosplay - is a way for people to dress up and assume the role and persona of their favorite characters - manga characters in this case.
So now that you have a little better understanding and familiarity with manga, anime and cosplay, here are some of the best anime makeup tutorials we could find.
Hopefully they will inspire you to have some fun where you can create your very own anime big eyes.
