Re: I'm a boy but I want to look like a girl - I need fashion/makeup tips!!!

that's such a cute dress!

Hmm. I would suggest just becoming more comfortable with makeup application - watch videos, read tutorials, and practise! honestly I learnt so much from just floating around here and looking at what other people had done, and asking how they'd acchieved it.

it seems like you're doing fine in the clothing department!

eyeshadow wise I'd suggest golds and metallics, browns and purples?

You look fabulous, but I would suggest a little tweezing on you brows to give you a more feminine look. I love your legs!!!

And short dresses are fun but its a dead give away at the mall.. Maybe something a bit longer and more casual.. Skirts and knit tops... Accessories!!

I'm usually the only person wearing a skirt when I go out enfemme but I don't stick out from the crowd... Much..

Welcome Uhm First things first I'd say with Makeup is to Learn how to Countour !! When I do Men's Makeup & they want a feminine look I always apply a light Foundation/concealer base Ya know cover any blemishes & Than start with A Shade that is 1 to 2 shades darker than their actual skin tone & shade lightly the jaw area, (to have an appearance of a smaller jawline), Shade the sides of the forhead and a bit atop (to make a smaller hair line) Than With a Shade that is lighter than yours highlight lightly the center of forhead, center of chin down the bridge of the nose, and under the eyes!!

And a bit thinner eyebrows or use a clear mascara to tame the eyebrows and shape em a bit!
Oh And Lashes or jusat curling your lashes can bring out your eye a bit as well!

Hope this helped you out a bit Love the Dress BTW !!

Ulta also makes a clear eyebrow gel.. And you can still pluck your eye brows thin but leave the individual hairs a bit longer and muss them up for guy mode.. I just keep mine thin all the time and no one cares or notices..

Hi Christina,

I just wanted to say that I'm new to MuT too, but I think you look wonderful in the pictures you posted. Hair is a little out of place, but we're never perfect at any time. Not without a hair stylist & makeup artist. Although I think the ladies here have perfected their techniques, they may as well be both!

Clothing wise, I'm sure at this point you'd probably be able to give ME tips because I'm so simple. But beautiful look hon : )

Re: I'm a boy but I want to look like a girl - I need fashion/makeup tips!!!

You're outfits look nice - the only suggestion I have has already been stated - just clean up the brow area, maybe even a slight arch?

I think you are very good looking and tastefully dressed. As suggested, pluck away some eyebrows to give them a feminine shape (by watching the tutorials or having it done by an expert the first time). That's the only thig, otherwise you look look great.

Re: I'm a boy but I want to look like a girl - I need fashion/makeup tips!!!

Hi J.,

Welcome I'm still a newbie here to but I have been dressing since 2001. The one thing that really helped me was a makeup book by Kevyn Aucoin called "Making Faces". It really heped me understand contouring and shading and the use of colors appropriate to your skin tone. He even had a section on makeup application for guys who wanted to look feminine. Kevyns died a few years back but both his books are like makeup bibles. Google "Making Faces" or "Faces Forward" they are still available online. Also this site is a treasure trove of great info.
Good Luck
