Makeup 101

Recommended Posts

Guest Lizzie McTrucker

Since there have been ladies looking for makeup help, advice, tips, suggestions, etc. I thought it would be a smart idea to have a thread about it instead of searching high and low and sifting through countless threads spread out over a few forums. I also thought since there is so much info already out there on the internet, I'll refrain from posting my personal tips and suggestions and point you instead to a few links that are much more descriptive and thorough.

How to apply makeup: http://www.wikihow.com/Apply-Makeup

Quite thorough. I don't do everything they list here (like foundation primer) so there are some things you can skip but it's a very good link.

How to apply makeup in 10 easy steps: http://www.ehow.com/...-makeup-10.html

Another good read and there are some great questions and answers, too.

Types of makeup foundations: http://beauty.about..../foundtypes.htm

As I'm sure you've noticed, we all seem to have our different routines that work for us. Some ladies swear by stick foundation, others liquid, others just use tinted moisturizer. If you're not sure what all these terms mean and which one may be better suited for you, this would be a great link to check out so you can read up about all the different types of makeup foundation there are.

Different types of lipstick: http://www.lipstick-...pes-of-lipstick

While this doesn't include lip stain, this is a quick read of different kinds of lipstick out there. I've checked out a few links that are similar and they all pretty much say the same thing as this. At least this one has pictures.

All about mascara: http://beauty.about....a/a/mascara.htm

A fantastic link about the ins and outs and the do's and dont's of mascara. A must read!

How to apply eyeliner: http://www.wikihow.com/Apply-Eyeliner

A wonderful eyeliner tutorial with helpful pictures.

Types of eyeliner: http://www.makeupgee...ow-to-use-them/

Fantastic article! This link explains the different types of eyeliner out there and the pro's and con's of each. The lady who wrote this really knows her stuff.

Applying eyeshadow: http://www.makeup2en...-eyeshadow.html

I had to search around for a site that explained the basics of applying eyeshadow and what colors to apply where and I think this is a good one that explains it simply for anyone just starting out.

Makeup tools 101 (brushes): http://beauty.about....makeuptools.htm

So after all that, here is a quick primer about all the various makeup brushes. Now keep in mind, you don't have to have all of these! There are a few brushes that are better than the ones that come packaged with some brands of makeup (blush immediately comes to mind, it's not suggested you use that brush but buy a better, actual blush brush) Also many of the high-end cosmetics don't come packaged with brushes so you would need your own to apply those anyway.

How to apply blush: http://www.wikihow.com/Apply-Blush

A fantastic link about the different kinds of blush out there, and which may be best for you. There are pictures to follow along and some great tips on how to apply it.

Hope these help, ladies!

Practice makes perfect and the best part of makeup is playing around with different shades to create different looks.

After all, it's just makeup. Have fun with it and enjoy being beautiful. :)

      I just feel like i am crazy... i keep doubting myself constently. I think i am trans, but everyone says no.  Maybe i am just confused and lost in a sea of raw emotions.  I keep feeling like i am trans, but i dont honestly know anymore. Maybe i am just confused myself, or just delusional.   Maybe i should just stop and expect me beginning so uncomfortable in my own skin.    Sorry for the vent. I just feel like it the only place i can express myself, i guess.   Thanks for reading. Sorry for the vent.

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!
    • VickySGV
      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Hello and welcome.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved. 
    • Ellora
      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).
    • Ellora
      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way! 
    • Ellora
      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy
