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 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.

      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.

      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!
    • 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
