Crossdressers often struggle with putting on makeup – firstly finding out just what you should be using, and then the right way to put them all together to achieve the sexy, feminine look you’ve always wanted.

The order to put on makeup for crossdressers

I have an order that I put on makeup, which I think makes it easiest to finish up looking gorgeous, and avoid wasting time redoing your makeup. In the interests of science I did some Internet research to find out how other girls apply their makeup.

To start off, one girl stressed that there is no right or wrong way to put on makeup – I wholeheartedly concur, we all have different habits we’ve developed. The below steps are a guideline to help you out, but please don’t change your makeup routine if it’s working well for you!

I generally make sure my face is clean, apply foundation and then work from top to bottom. I find this makes it less likely for me to put my arm in makeup I’ve just applied – it’s always fun to have your clothes dripping with makeup while your face looks like a mini tornado passed through.

Cross Dresser How To Apply Make Up

Step 1: Cleanse, tone and moisturize: Makeup works best on a clean face, so start with your normal cleansing routine to get ready to apply makeup.

Step 2: Set the foundation: Apply concealer under your eyes, and around your nose. Especially important for cross dressers is to apply beard cover over your neck area and face. Follow this up with a base or foundation that closely matches your skin tone. Cover with a light dusting of powder to hold in place. (more)

Step 3: Light up your eyes: Start with eye liner (for me this is the most difficult, so I’ll spend some time struggling on this before starting to put on any other makeup). Then clean up your eye brows, filling in any holes, and finall apply eye shadow and mascara.

Step 4: Let your cheeks bloom: Then a light dusting of blush, as I work my way down to the lips. If you overdo the blush (which I’ve been guilty of), go back and apply some powder to lighten it up.

Step 5: Create Gorgeous Lips: Now bring your lips to a gorgeous shimmer, and you’re almost done.

Step 6: Make sure you haven’t missed anything: Check all over to make sure you’re beautiful!

    These sites aren’t useful because they never include any photots or illustrations. I can’t possibly know that I’m doing this properly without them.
