What make-up do you wear?

Recommended Posts

Guest Protoman2050

What make-up do you wear? On a daily basis, I usually wear:

Illamasqua PF240 powder

MAC Fleur blush

Illamasqua Empower eye shadow palette

Illamasqua Precision gel liner

Illamasqua Magnetism lip stick

Illamasqua black pencil as lip liner

I can't wear mascara as my lashes are way too short; I need to get false lashes or extensions. I probably need to get brow liner. My Illamasqua MUA friend says I don't need to contour, although highlighting could be useful.

A lot of my MUA friends say I should get MUA training, as I'm getting quite good. I enjoy making designs around my eyes with my liner.

Latisse, is a product that can grow your eyelashes longer, i tried it and it worked for me, it requires a prescription and is rather costly.

Mom tried that...didn't work. I think I'll just wear falsies or get extensions every month or so.

I wear bare minerals foundation, found that its better on my skin and gives a silkier appearance then the cheaper brands.

For my mascara, eyeliner, and blush they are all Sephora brands, I do also like MAC but right now I'm using Sephora the most. Using a black creme eyeliner I mix the creme with a bit of a water to give the liner a more defined look, really works well for me. :)

I use MAC foundation, and a combination of Rimmel and ELF for everything else. Rimmel and ELF are pretty inexpensive, which is good for experimenting with color and style. I'm eventually going to switch to all MAC.

For lipstick, I really like Revlon Colorstay Overtime. They're a stain and come in a cute package with gloss. These things last forever and don't come off on your wine glass :D wish there were more colors though.

Usually none. Just some moisturizer and that's it.

Lid Primer - Urban Decay.

Eye shadow - Stila for my taupe color, Bobbi Brown also has a taupe i just love.

- Smashbox, I love love love their color Fizz. Also some great pinks and nudes and the shadows feel velvety soft.

- Lancome, Pricey, but they do apply smooth and the color is amazing

Liner - Gosh, khol pencils in espresso, black and grey. I use grey the most. It just allows for a softer everyday look while still having strong definition. I also do my liner under my shadow to really

give it the softest look and for my eyes, the best POP!

Mascara - Lancome, Definicils or Virtuose Black Carat. Definicils is my everyday. No clumps and my lashes look miles long. Virtuose for when I want the same length, but really full looking lashes.

Blush - Nars, Orgasm. I love this. I feel radiant when I have it on.

Kay, if you like MAC, you'll LOVE Illamasqua! Their eye shadow is amazingly pigmented, their eye liner is pitch black, their lipstick is rich, and their foundation is great at a flawless look. And they're one of the few brands that still do glitter eye shadow.

My good friend and fellow tgirl, Drew-Ashlyn Cunningham, is one of their star make-up artists.

Once my MAC Fleur blush runs out, I'll replace it with Illamasqua's Tweak

Hmmmm, thanks for the advice. I'll have to take a look at their line :)

That *might* only be available overseas, but I could be wrong.

I swear by NARS "Orgasm" blush. It's pretty and it's flattering and it looks great! Lots of different beauty sources recommend it for a blush because it's complimentary on most skin tones. That was my first high end makeup purchase and I feel it's money well spent and much better than some of the other brands like CoverGirl, Revlon and L'Oreal.

They sell Illamasqua at Sephora. They've got some cool nail polish and lipstick colors.

I mostly stick to MAC & UD.

Today I'm wearing:

Face: Illamasqua PF240 powder and MAC Fleur blush
Eyes: Illamasqua Precision gel liner, Slick on entire eye, Synth overlaid on inner corner, Fervent on brow bone
Lips: Illamasqua Magnetism lined with black pencil

I'm the glam goth TS queen!

I'll wear my fierce make-up, my tight leather jacket, tight black tees, tight jeans, and my knee-high 6.5" stiletto boots at LAX airport. Hot or not?

(Once again, false lashes would complete the look and make my eyes pop like fireworks!)

As a modest old girl i couldn't pull that stuff off. Not to mention my wife would call the fashion police. Sounds like fun but i chose to fade a bit more into the background using the makeup saying...'blend, blend and blend'. But to each their own!

Hugs,

Charlie

Funny, all my friends tell me "Subtle and natural is just not you...you can't do it. Dramatic and striking suits you."

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.  
    • Raven1981
      I am with you DeeDee.  Even before transitioning, I was always put into the friend zone.  Then I just hated these famous lines I was told.   1. Your too much of a friend to be a relationship person.   2. You have just not found the right person yet.   3. There is plenty of fish in the sea.   4, You dont have to date, cause your not the dating type of person.   All these lines I just hate with a passion.  They are all just the nice way of saying get away your ugly and I dont like you.   That's why I am just giving up and will just die lonely and alone
