Makeup Tutorial For Trans Women

Hey loves! I’m about eight months into my hormone replacement therapy journey, and for the longest time I’ve been searching for the right makeup look. For months I wore full face makeup with eyeliner and lipstick on the daily (and that is totally fine for you to do as well) but it got to a point where I dreaded getting ready every morning. It wasn’t good for my skin and sometimes it did the opposite of what I intended it to do, for I kept getting misgendered. So I learned to start doing less; I feel better about my skin, and I am able to pass much easier. And although I know for some of you passing is not a concern, I am aware that for others passing is a matter of safety and security.

So let’s get into this makeup look!

First things first, priming is very important!! Now I know from paying hormones and other things I have to do financially, I have a pretty tight budget. However, through the help of the internet and some makeup YouTubers, I’ve discovered this very cheap primer. It’s NIVEA for Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm ($5). It works like magic, and it is cheap! The glycerin in the formula helps your makeup stay on all day long. Also, I shave my face right before doing my makeup, therefore an after shave balm really helps. You’ll kill two birds with one stone!

Next up, I like to color correct my five o’ clock shadow, which is mainly my upper lip and chin area. I use Wet n’ Wild MegaLast Lipstick Just Peachy ($1.50). Because my facial hair has a blue-ish undertone, I am using an orangey/peachy color before my foundation to cancel it out. I apply and blend it out with my middle finger.

I like to let it sit for a bit, so to save time, I move on to concealing/highlighting/priming- all with one product! And that is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, Neutralizer ($7). I apply it on the bridge of my nose for a subtle highlight, under my eyes for brightening, and on my eyelids for priming the eye makeup!

So once I look like I belong in The Lion King, I use a damp Drugstore Beauty Blender ($4), and blend it all out with patting motions. Be gentle, but really work in the products.

Viola! So now we move onto foundation! I used to wear liquid foundation every day, but I found that it was drying and too cakey for a daily look, so I moved on to bb creams! An lawddddddd, they work wonders! It’s light and breathable, yet is buildable and can cover up problem areas, such as the peachy orange color concealer I use. My current favorite is Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation, 90 Honey Beige ($9). I apply it with my fingers all over my face except for the color corrected areas. I will get to that after with a different application!

I learned that it is not necessarily what brand of makeup you use that makes you look incredible, but the techniques and the brushes are what will do you wonders! So for the bb cream I am using E.L.F’s Powder Brush ($3), which is meant for dry products, but the density and surface of the brush makes for a perfect buffing brush. So blend that in!

Now all you are left with is your upper lip area and chin area that has the peachy tone lipstick on it. So what I do is I take more of that bb cream, and put it on my middle finger, and apply a generous amount on top of the areas. Afterwards, I use the bottom part of my beauty blender and pat that in, making sure to blend out the edges so I’m left with one unison color for my foundation.

Yay! Foundation is all complete! Now because there is quite the thick layer on my upper lip and chin area, I need to set it so it does not move or smudge throughout the day. So what I do is I use Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder, Naturally Neutral ($5) with my beauty blender, and pat a generous amount on my chin and upper lip. This is called baking, where you let the powder cook the makeup and set it really well.

Can’t forget about the rest of the face! So what I do is I take a little amount of that loose powder and apply it mostly on the highlighted areas, such as the under eyes, and the bridge of my nose. But this time, I use a little bit and blend it in really well. Because the deweyness of the bb cream is lovely, and you don’t want to take that away!

While I bake, I like to move on to the eyes. I start with highlighting beneath the brow, with Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-in Primer, Classic Nude ($8). I take the top pinkish highlight color with my ring finger and apply that under my brows for a nice shimmery highlight.

Next, I move on to the eyeshadow, which will actually be the bronzer that I use. I like to keep the eyes simple and nude neutral, for a more natural look. I bought Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Bronzer, Bikini Contest ($3) bronzer at the dollar store, and it is by far one of my favorite bronzers to date! I will apply it with E.L.F.’s Eyeshadow “C” Brush ($3) and pack it on my eyelids. After, I use E.L.F.’s Blending Brush ($3) and blend out the edges to smoke out the eyeshadow.

Next, I highlight the tip of my nose, inner corner of my eyes, and cheekbones with ColourPop’s Glo Up Highlighter ($8), all with my ring finger. It has a more thick powder consistency, and I find using my finger to be the easiest method.

The reasoning for highlighting is that because we have concealed, applied foundation, and powdered our face, adding shimmer brings back a glow to the face. Also… highlighters are so pretty! 

So the next step is to dust off the powder on the chin and upper lip with a very light and fluffy brush.

Now, I move on to contouring/bronzing. I like to use one single product to do the job. Contouring and then bronzing is too much work, and I’m not going for a night time party look, therefore a warm and bronze glow will do the job, if done strategically. I use E.L.F.’s Complexion Brush ($3) and the bronzer earlier and work it right above the natural hollow of my cheekbones, and blend it in in circular motions, whilst blending in the highlight on the cheek too, to make one uniform look.

Don’t forget the forehead, sides of the nose, jawline, and down the neck. I also blend some on the upper lip and chin because the powder earlier can make the areas look slightly ashy. Blend, blend, blend! Very important!

For my eyebrows, I like to use Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Mascara ($6) because it darkens my brows, and the waterproof formula keeps it in place. Eyebrows frame your face, they are very important, so experiment to see what works best for you!

You can honestly end right here, but I like to do mascara. I find that applying mascara on my eyelashes helps feminize my eyes. Take a looksie!

As you can see, simply curling them makes a big difference. Now let’s apply the mascara! My favorite is L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara, Waterproof Blackest Black ($6). Unfortunately, my genetics did not bless me with the best eyelashes, but this mascara knocked me off the park and gives me length I never thought I could have! Look at the difference in the two eyes.

I focus the mascara mostly on the outer corner because it almost gives it a darker smokey/gradient eye look. Now do the same for the other eye and we’re almost done!

For the lips, I like to line them with Rimmel 1000 Kisses Stay On Lip Liner Pencil, Café Au Lait ($3), and fill them in with CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lip Stick, Sultry ($2)

Because I’m going for a more naturalistic look, I like to make the lips more matte. Here’s the trick: You take a tissue paper, put it over your lips, and use a fluffy brush and a loose powder and lightly brush it over my lips for a matte effect.

AND YOU’RE DONE!!

Now finish up getting ready, and live your life!

You can either add more, or take it all off. At the end of the day, your makeup is your own art, so go with whatever you are most comfortable with!

THE BEST MAKE UP OF ALL TIME

Here’s a list of my favorite make up products by category! These are all tried and true after years of experimentation 💋

FACE
- Moisturizer: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. Get the gel instead of the lotion if you have oily skin

- Primer: Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm for Men. Don’t question, just try it

- Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way or Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24Hr. Honestly can’t choose between them. Apply both with a damp beauty blender

- Cream contour: Clinique Chubby Sticks. Blend out beautifully

- Powder (extra coverage): MAC’s Mineralized Skin Finish Natural

- Blush: NARS Blushes cannot be beat. Orgasm is an all time classic and looks amazing on everyone. I also LOVE the Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette but it’s gone so you’d have to find it on eBay or something

- Highlight: Best highlight of all time is Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop

- Setting Spray: Urban Decay All Nighter

EYES
- Eyeshadow primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion

- Eyeshadow: best brand for eyeshadow IMO is Anastasia Beverly Hills or Lorac. Great first palette is the Lorac pro

- Eyeliner: Stila Liquid Eyeliner NO DEBATE THE END

- Mascara: Maybelliene Clump Crusher (get water resistant to hold your curl)

- Eyelash curler: best eyelash curler of all time is from Shu Uemura which they stopped selling at Sephora but you can order it online

- Fake eyelashes: Absolutely love the Kiss brand’s Blooming line because they’re multilayered and have such a thin band and so many different styles

EYEBROWS
- Filling in: Anastasia Brow Wiz no debate

- Setting: Anastasia Brow Gel and if you’re really gonna rub them off, NYX waterproofing gel on top of that

- Maintenance: Tweezerman. Spend the money. No other tweezers are worth your time

LIPS
- Balm: only chapstick I truly believe works (and doesn’t make them worse in the long run) is Burts Bees

- Lipliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On

- Lipstick: Too Faced’s La Crème line and Melted line

- Lipgloss: BUXOM!!!!! They are so unreal amazing perfect everything I’ve ever wanted. Also love the Urban Decay Naked glosses

ira-querelle  asked:

I have tried literally everything (sponge, brush, fingers, different concealers, powder, not using powder to finish, primers, creams) but still my undereye concealer creases&cakes, it goes in the fine little lines, blots... awful. Any tips??

Concealer is something that can go horribly wrong, I agree. If you apply too much it looks cakey, not enough and you can still see darkness and if you quickly dust a powder to set the concealer it can go patchy and uneven, if you don’t set it at all it can crease quickly and be overly shiny and if you “bake” the area with loads of powder it can look cakey, dry and unnatural.

Use an Eye Cream or Primer

If you’re applying your concealer directly ontop of foundation without prepping the eye area first this could be where you are going wrong. On the other hand if you’re applying a thick heavy eye cream under the eyes and immediately going in with concealer this could also be where you’re going wrong. Confusing? Applying an eye cream or undereye primer will help to hydrate the undereyes and give the skin a little more “slip” so product is less likely to settle, but if you don’t let it absorb for 5 minutes or so before applying your concealer, you will find the concealer immediately grabs to the eye cream and makes a bit, gross, uneven and creasing mess. I recommend: Origins Gin Zing Refreshing Eye Cream (because it’s lightweight and has light reflecting properties which brighten the undereyes) and Smashbox PhotoFinish Under Eye Primer (because it is a beautiful creamier version of their original primer which helps fill in fine lines under the eyes)

Try a Thicker Product

When I say a thicker product I don’t necessarily mean one that is full-bore high coverage, I just mean one that isn’t super thin and liquidy. Thicker, creamier products tend to sit ontop of the skin better and have a bit more playtime (great especially if you have issues with creasing) whilst thinner and more runny products often dry a lot quicker and as a result can settle into fine lines and wrinkles. Try using a product that has a creamier texture like Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer or you could even try a full-coverage stick foundation!

Use Sparingly

One of the biggest causes for concealer creasing underneath the eyes and looking cakey is simply applying too much of it! I recommend only using concealer on the areas needed and go easy with it. Just because you have a bit of darkness under the eyes doesn’t mean you should pile on heaps of concealer. You may find this post about how to properly use concealer helpful.

Set Properly

The key to setting your undereye area is to use a loose powder or a clean, fluffy blending eyeshadow brush and gently press the powder over top of the concealer before dusting/blending the excess product in with the same brush. Here is a video on how to use setting powder.

Part 7: Prep The Eyes

Before you apply your eyeshadow, always prep the eyes with primer or/and eyeshadow base.

  • Eye Primer 
    Primer will help the eyeshadow to stay put and last long. It aslo help prevent creasing on the eyelid. Never double layer a primer because it can cause creasing. The best drugstore eye primers are L’Oreal Magic De-crease eyelid primer, Milani Eyeshadow Primer, ELF Eye primer & liner sealer, and ELF Mineral eyeshadow primer.
  • Eyeshadow Base
    A base can magnifies an eyeshadow shade. It is best for vibrant colors, to prevent skin color come through. The best drugstore eyeshadow base are NYX HD Eyesahdow base or my favorite NYX Eyeshadow base in “White”. A white creamy eye pencil also does the trick, like NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk and La Colors jumbo eye pencil in Sea Shells. White eyeshadow base works great for vibrant color, but for darker color such like black used any cheap black creamy eye-pencil for eyeshadow base. 

    Tip: Concealer can also be used as eyeshadow base If you have a tight budget. Concealer suit best for people with dry to normal skin.

Alright chicklets
I put on my eye makeup at 7 am and now at 8:30 pm it is perfectly in place
I even cried today
I dont use high end shadow or liner so when I tell you this primer works miracles- believe it
Wet n Wild Fergie Eye Primer
Rub a little bit of that all over your lids and under your bottom lashes, let it dry a little bit and apply eye makeup as you usually would

Ive heard its just as good as urban decay’s eye primer but Ive never used that so I couldnt tell you

Urban Decay Minor Sin Primer Potion

“Color was great, it wore well, but I felt like a 5 year old. I wanted something more subtle, but with my skin coloring, it was way too much. I’m returning it.”

Wait, ok, let’s rap about this. The colour is good, the formula is good, but it… wait, let me check my notes, “Makes [you] feel like a 5 year old [sic]”? What about it makes you feel like a child? Is it because it’s shimmery? Because if it is, why do you like the colour and formula? Has Urban Decay found the lost fountain of youth? Have they bottled it into a little squeezy tube and then sold it at a mark up? Do your eyes only want chicken fingers now? I mean, your guess is as good as mine.

Also, BONUS WEIRD REVIEW: 

“Primer in Original is my holy grail, I use it every day. Sin is completely opposite; It creases, too shimmery and makes eyes look creepy. Its horrible.”

I feel like this person probably meant “crepe-y”, as in it brought out the texture of their lids (which is legit, shimmery products tend to do that), but the use of “creepy” makes me think of this:

OK I DON’T LIKE THIS ANYMORE

♡ Hani’s Review: Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer ♡  

  • Price: Around $5 online

Directions:

  1. Use fingers to gently apply primer to upper and lower eyelids prior to eyeshadow application, or on the eye lines prior to eyeliner application.

Pros:

  • There are directions in English
  • Convenient packaging, travel friendly
  • Glides on very easily
  • No smell
  • Does not irritate the eyes

Cons:

  • None!

Comments: This product was smaller than I expected, but it was $5 so I don’t know what I was expecting. It gets the job done as an eye primer and it’s pretty good! I can’t compare it to other eye primers since this was the first one I’ve ever used. 

Rating: 5/5

anonymous asked:

I need tips for eye makeup! I'm Arab so my skin so dark, especially around my eyes. My bags and my lids. I'm 14 and I love makeup, but I can never do nice natural pretty makeup because my eyes are too dark. I use light concealer to cover my kids as a primer and base but it doesn't seem to work, and neither does white eyeshadow. Most of my friends are light skinned so nice colors like light pinks and neutrals look great, but you can't see hem on me, any tips?

Watch these videos to learn about color correcting and covering dark circles: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=jackie+aina+color+correction 

Color correction might be what you need! It will take some practice to find the right shade and amount of product to use but it does work if done properly. Then for natural looking makeup instead of going for light colors use metallics that are the same shade as your skin. On days when I just want natural looking eyeshadow I go for medium toned golds and browns so it just adds a little bit of shimmer and sparkle to my lids without looking super bright or ashy. 

Also you can use your dark circles to your advantage. If you conceal under your eyes and not your lids it usually looks like you just have some shadow on your lids. You can then apply a light layer of shimmery gold or brown shadow over you lids for a very natural look. 

To get shadow to show up there are a lot of things you can do. 

1. Try using eyeshadow primer instead of concealer. This one from wet n’ wild is supposed to be comparable to the urban decay one which is the one I use: http://www.wetnwildbeauty.com/eyes/primer/photo-focustm-eyeshadow-primer.html

2. Pigments have much more intense color than regular eyeshadows because they have less fillers and are closer to pure pigments. 

The urban decay electric palette is all pressed pigments so the colors are very intense: http://www.sephora.com/electric-pressed-pigment-palette-P385671

The loose pigments are very intense: http://www.makeupgeek.com/store/eye-products/pigments/makeup-geek-pigments.html

Regular shadows are very pigmented: https://www.makeupgeek.com/store/eye-products/eyeshadows/makeup-geek-eyeshadows.html

The foiled shadows are super intense (I think they crease on oily lids though): http://www.makeupgeek.com/store/eye-products/eyeshadows/makeup-geek-foiled-eyeshadows.html 

Colourpop eyeshadows:

The ultra-metallic ones will show up on every skin tone: https://colourpop.com/product-category/shadows-pigments/shadowsandpigments/?filter_finish=125

The regular metallic ones are great as well: https://colourpop.com/product-category/shadows-pigments/shadowsandpigments/?filter_finish=123

You can use colourpop shadows as bases for other shadows as well. 

3. Instead of using concealer as an eyeshadow base you can use an eyeshadow stick or like I said above, colourpop eyeshadows. 

In this tutorial I use a melted down nyx jumbo pencil in black bean for a black base to deepen up shadow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkI1-UL7ceg

In this tutorial I use a melted down nyx jumbo pencil in milk to help bright colors shop up better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjOfQZQEMH8

4. You can foil metallic shadows to get them to show up better. I always do this with loose metallic shadows otherwise the shadow goes everywhere. I first pick up some shadow on my brush and then spray it to dampen the shadow. Then I apply the shadow to my lid.

I do it in this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzpOaookFTI

I hope at least one of these tips helps!
