Make-Up And Cosmetics
We’ve had many an email asking us for tips on applying make-up to achieve a feminine look. Putting on make-up to produce the desired effect is probably one of the most difficult, yet most rewarding, aspects of tranny life. The difficulty in trying to provide any advice in this field is that there is no single solution that works for all faces. Of course, it is possible to use the same make-up style on a number of different people and have the basic effect of changing their facial looks from that of a man to that of a woman, but using that one style on all faces, produces a single look on all to whom it is applied. This is why, if you browse the photos of the make-overs done by transgender make-up and make-over artists such as Adam And Eve or Jodie Lynn, you will find that many of the girls end up looking much the same. That is not to say that these people do not do an important and wonderful job on their clients, they still come highly recommended by us here at Trans-MISSION, but if you want a look that suits you rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach, then, as an Irish farmer once said when asked for directions… ‘If I were you, I wouldn’t start here’!
The second reason why it would be silly if not downright hypocritical of us to offer make-up tips is that, although we’ve found ways to apply make-up to my our faces that work for us, we are by no means experts in cosmetics. If it’s an expert you’re after, visit the aforementioned gurus in the field, they really know what they’re doing. In fact this, if anything, would be our number one tip for those seeking to learn more about applying make-up: go to an expert and get advice. Or even better, go to more than one expert and get more than one set of advice and then play around a bit with what you learnt to find something that works for you. Local tranny meetings and social groups are also great places to ask around for advice, but not, we suggest, at nightclubs or bars where the girls you will meet are typically out to enjoy themselves do not want to spend their precious time giving tips on applying mascara.
