A dumb question from Ms. Kattja.

So I have a dumb question. I am not to big on blush or lipstick. Never can find a good blush to start with and my natural lip color stands out well on it's own...But I just dont feel right with out eye shadow and eye liner. If in a rush and can only pick one I pick the eye liner. That being said, the other day I picked up two fab eye liners and a great lavender eye shadow. Tho I have alot of eye shadows and eye liners these new liners I picked up,one is silver and really looks great with my green eyes and the other is a silvery lavender, also looks great. my eyes really sparkle, have little brushes on the end of the pencil. I have never seen this on any of my others I have. What is this for? How do I use it (the brush)? Have I been missing out on a beautiy tool? I was with a friend of mine (who has been a huge help and very suportive with me and who I am) and she had never seen this either and she didnt know how exactly to use this. I attached a photo of the brush, on the end of my liner, next to a dime for sizeing reasons.

I have not seen a pencil liner come with a brush before, but i do have a few liner brushes, one flat, one angled and one pointed. My flat one i like with a few cream liners as i find it creates the best line. The pointed is one i like when i use an eye shadow as a liner. Wet the brush and take some shadow from the edge of the color, work off any excess on the back of the hand and then apply as you would with a pencil. My angled one i use very little, but would use it the same as the reg flat one i have, i just like the flat one better. I also have a tiny smudge brush for when i want to smudge the liner for a softer look.

Its used for smudging the liner a bit to help with a smokey effect and blending the liner into the actual shadow. I have one that has a more foamlike back end for the same thing. The brush puts on a VERY fine line, so use two lines, one above the other, and run the smudge tip over it for a new look. Also makes the under eye line look better if you do it on the inside (nose to ear direction) of the eye about 3/4 of the way to the corner of the eye.

No sillier a question than some I have come up with!!

It's to soften the liner if you want more of a smoky eye look.

So I use this with the shadow then? A blending "tool" is it used before or after the shadow?

How do i use this tool?

Apply your eyeshadow first on the upper eyelid. Apply the LINER with its brush in a fine line on top of the eyelashes, and just run the tool over the liner while it is still drying.

I go to YouTube do everything step by step. If I didn't accomplish it, then I do it again. It's kinda fun. Don't except to do it on your first try and be fabulous. Me and my mom have the same kind of everything same skin color and stuff so it's a bit easier trying to match your tone. Can you find or play with samples?

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      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!

      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
