      I want to slowly learn how to apply makeup on myself and feel like I do not need to learn “full glam” level skills as of now. So what is the minimum I can get away with to look like a cis women without makeup on (or very little)? I was thinking a good foundation/concealer, lipstick or lip gloss, and eye shadow. Not enough? I feel like I have a slim enough face to where I could get away with no contouring or anything like that. A simple application that I can throw on to go run errands or something like that. But I would definitely like to know your professional opinion.

      My everyday is foundation/concealer, light color nude lipstick, eyebrows and light mascara. I only do eye shadow when I am going out some where special. If an evening event a darker lipstick as well.

        Hey Tommie, how long did it take for you to get comfortable with eye liner and mascara? I just get so nervous with things that close to my eyes especially things that can potentially poke my eye. Is there eyeliner/mascara sponges I could use? Or something soft like a sponge to apply those things?

      Going on the picture of you a neutral foundation, cheek contour and a subtle lipstick would be a start. Perhaps a little soft pencil eyeliner and eyeshadow would complete it. That’s my thoughts.

        Thank you Angela, I will try that combination and see how well it turns out. By the way, the pictures of me are with a multitude of makeups on (I wasn’t paying attention to what the artist was putting on me, just trusted her lol)

      I’m no pro with makeup but I’ve been wearing a light powder compac , light touch of mascara and very light touch of eyeliner and some eyeshadow lately while still presenting as a man so I’m sure if you just went light on most things you should be good.

        Hi Ashley, I’ve only used a very natural shade of lipstick plus a blonde eyebrow pencil. I will try your advice regarding the mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow. I have light brown hair that is greying. Would you have any recommendations for the color of the mascara or eyeliner? Sorry if this is a silly question but when it comes to makeup, I’m a complete novice.

          Well for mascara I just use black, same for liner and as far as shadow goes I use lighter colours. It’s all in how much I put on I guess.  As of late I’m getting a little more comfortable with a more prominent eyeliner.

      I am definitely not a professional, but I think mascara and lipstick are a must. As far as makeup in general goes, just keep practicing. I simply love makeup.

      Hugs, Liara

      After watching you tube vidios and doing it myself making up what I thought worked, I finally skipped eye liner and mascara and eye color . I used no concealer and thought I was doing OK. On Monday I finally had my time with my local Mary Kay rep. She said that most of what I was doing good. BUT what she showed me was even using less foundation that what I had been doing. Then she showed me a better way to apply mascara and eye liner, good way to use a little subtle eye color. Then correct way to use a little blush and good way to do the lip color.
      Good luck to you

      Hi Quinetta,  I agree with Cassie.  Less is better.  I use much less makeup than I ever did before.  Mostly a little blush, eyebrow pencil and lipstick.  If I have more time, I’ll spend it on my outfit.  Then I’m out the door.  BTY if I do use mascara (only on special occasions) I just close one eye and hold the brush just over the lashes and then open my eye.  I repeat this until I’m satisfied.  I will then also use Kryolan Cake eyeliner that is just applied with the smallest of my paintbrushes (just like kids water paints)  I hope that this helps.  Marg
