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."

      I think it's finding what suits you best. I have never got on with boyshorts at all. Not being over there, I won't go into brands but, in general, I have found quality panties better. Obviously womenswear is only designed to cover a small bulge so tucking is really essential.   I tend to wear bikini, hi-leg or full brief dependant on situation, how I am feeling or what I am wearing.   Tracy

      Thanks Charlize and everyone. I’ve done two days. The medication helps a lot.
    • mini
      thank all of you  for the splendid advice    
    • mini
      hello   i appreciate the advice as i was having a terrible time tucking and staying in place especially walking they were always slipping out or never in proper place.  I will be taking the tips and trying them out in the morning . I was afraid to try tape as hair would be pulled out. I will be trying the pull from behind and panty method as well as other great advice.    I do have one other question and that is going to gym as i am not allowed to use the other gym so how do i get used to being comfortable in those situations.

      I am not really sure where this is headed just now, but it does underscore the need for understanding of what and who Trans people are.  The mythology and the fantasy about us needs to be fully bashed out of some heads and replaced with better stuff.

      One of my psychology professors years ago liked to tell us that most M.D.s did not fully earn the Doctor part of their degrees, and they really should get a degree of Body Mechanic (BM) and I think he may have had it right in this case.  The guy knows the physical configuration of the human brain expertly as a technician but his ability to actually reason with his own brain on non technical matters is up for conjecture.

      Greetings Markjvp.  Your intro was fine.  Telling our family, especially at a young age is fraught with peril so I can relate to your story.  I am guessing you are about 16 so you still have some time to go before you graduate High School and can move out on your own, or go to college.  I know the time seems long, but in reality it's not.  Focus on your education as it will sustain you for the rest of your life.     As to starting transition, if that is your goal, a couple years will not make a huge difference.  You want to remain at home where you have a roof over your head and meals to eat.  Don't do anything rash.  Your family may or may not ever get "fixed" as this is their choice to understand.  Your choice is to be the best you that you can be.  Look around there are other stories like yours here.     Cheers, Jani
    • Jani
      This is so good to read that you have found the way to sobriety that suits you.  You have so much to be happy and grateful for, especially for the inner strength you posses.  Yeah for you!  You will get over your shyness and insecurity in due time.  I believe in you.  Your sponsor sounds like a caring person.     Hugs, Jani
