Here is a transformation pic, from the first day putting on a full face of makeup to 9 months. I think my makeup technique has matured. LOL. Here are a couple of things I focused on:
1) Brows: Softening them as best as I can softens the entire area. For me, that means making them thin. By lessening the brow, I visually lessen the brow bone, which to me is a significant marker between male/female identification.
2) Lashes: I have no natural lashes to speak of, so finding the “right” lash length/style for me was extremely important. It had to be long, full, but not sooooo long that it would take the look of drag. I’ve purchased and tried SOOOOO many different styles, until I found the right one. Now, I just purchase the exact same one in 20 pairs at a time. I know exactly how to put them on, repeatedly, which makes the entire action of getting dressed en femme extremely quick and natural.
3) Foundation: This is where I think “less is definitely more”. I try to completely avoid it most times. I focused on my natural skin texture and making it as flawless as possible (Ponds products for the win here).
4) Facial hair/mustache. If you truly want to go out as “passable” as possible, this is probably one of the key areas. This makes a huge difference in identification… probably more than anything else. There are tall girls, girls with broad shoulders, girls with no hips, girls with stronger facial features, girls with no boobs, girls with big hands… but MOST will not have a mustache or beard. It’s as simple as that.
