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."

      Thank you all for the support. I do know that it takes a strong person to be vulnerable.  But when a bond is ravaged I’ve always looked to those that have the courage to move on as the strong ones. Not the ones that stay.    I just can’t seem to truly forgive her for what’s happened. For the awful thing she’s done. And before transition I would have walked away. And I have. I stayed this time because I’m scared to face life With 2 kids 2 exes and no support at home.    I have seen that I still love her. But I love my ex too. Not exactly the same way. But at one time it was the same with her. I can’t help but think this is all for stupid reasons based on a fallacy that I can’t survive with my kids without her. And unless I can figure out how to forgive her for real like in my heart and soul idk what to do.    On the flip side this is the first time that my partner has ever done their part to fix the problem as well. And she’s done everything I’ve asked. And she’s done more. She’s an amazing person really and like I said I do love her. I just can’t figure out if my morals or my feelings are what I need to listen to. And I guess that’s a personal thing I need to figure out. I just wish it wasn’t so hard. And all encompassing.

      This is very important!  My wife had this situation recently for a routine test that needed to be evaluated by a non-affiliated doctor.  Ouch!  Jani

      There are no boundaries as long as you are safe.  Lots of women enjoy "masculine" activities and many men like "feminine" activities.  Don't fret over it.     BTW I am still active with my car hobby.   Jani

      Hello.  I wonder if this was a gender counselor?  It does appear as if they were asking tough questions to make you consider all the options.  You need to be honest with yourself about what in your life would change (physically and emotionally) if you had this surgery.   I do think her statement about being a freak was a little harsh and not necessarily correct.  If possible you might consider a new therapist.    Jani

      Hello Dave/Dina.  Welcome aboard.     I will just mention that you are close to Fenway Health and they are very caring.  I love my doctor there.     Please join in the conversation! Jani

      Hi I recently went to a therapist who was asking me questions my birth sex is female i identify as a woman but i have wanted top surgery she began talking about all the surgery and risks felt like she was trying to put me off wanted to know about my family asked me why I want top surgery as a woman I have always seen breasts as a nuisance a hindrance wearing bras and so on she came to the conclusion that it was not about my identity that was an issue one thing she said that really stuck into me she said  how would I feel in society as a breathless woman.she said society would class me as a freak I was shocked by her words and feel really crap about myself I am femme presenting and I feel like she did not believe me about wanting top surgery or did not see things from my perspective i suppose life as a breastless woman would be hard on a binary world  she asked to think about my relationship to my chest and I feel like I am being encouraged to think about them it just feels really jarring i guess this was a nh s therapist

      Can I just say?.. I think you're a strong woman for staying. I'd say that regardless of gender. You're strong for staying! And for admitting the vulnerability and the hurt. But wanting to maintain the relationship through it all anyway is strength. Wounds do heal.    ❤️ ~Toni
    • SugarMagnolia
      Kirsten, may I suggest a slight tweak to how you're thinking about this? Instead of thinking of yourself as a weak woman may I suggest simply thinking of yourself as a woman who's strong enough to allow herself to be vulnerable? When you are open to others, you are open to being hurt. That's not weakness. It's faith and love and trust. When that trust is violated it hurts...a lot. If you weren't a strong woman you wouldn't be able to let people in and you wouldn't be hurt like that. But you also wouldn't be able to truly love and be loved. Take heart and know that you're strong enough to get through this!

      Just another voice in the chorus.  Please go to the clinic you mentioned and get some professional help!  Even short term self administration can cause a lifetime of problems with few positive results.   Hugs,   Charlize

      So Rokkatru is an off-shoot of Asatru or Heathenism, which is Paganism specializing in Norse mythology. Rokkatru focuses on the worship of Rokkar -- IE Frost Giants. The most popular members of the pantheon is the shape shifting, genderfluid, and pansexual God of fire, mischief, and stories Loki and his family. Because Loki can take the form of both God or Goddess or even androgyny, he has become the patron saint of queens, so to speak.    I run a Rokkatru blog on Tumblr where I am out as FtM and have a little over 300 followers. Is anyone else interested in this?

      This.    You have to be comfortable with yourself and comfortable with living on your own before you can be comfortable in a committed relationship.    Pansexuality has been trending for a while in the LGBT community. At least, among us younger members. For those of you who haven't heard it, pansexuality is the attraction to all genders, including transgenders. So there are definitely people out there. They are just part of a younger generation.    Also there are people who see being trans as a fetish. Which is....Or can be problematic, IMO, because then you are basically being used as a play thing, I feel like. Unless you're into that, of course. 
    • Charlize
      Kristen i'm so sorry to read about your struggles accepting the actions of your wife.  An incident like that can certainly haunt one but hopefully in time it will heal both in the relationship and in your feeling of weakness.  I remember feeling so vulnerable during early transition.  With the coming of confidence in myself as a woman came a feeling of acceptance and strength. Just like the hairs on your chin time it can be dealt with.  It takes a great deal of strength to get past the fear we all face at first.  I doubt any of us are really weak.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Even on prescribed medication, I still developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) that necessitated that I go off hormones for nearly a year.  Luckily the blood clot did not go into any crucial organs, but I now have medicines I really don't want that I will take for the rest of my life.  We like to keep our members with us here alive and in good spirits.
