    Hello!

    I’m really wanted to wear lipstick.  Each time I try it doesn’t look too good!  Any tips? Brands? How to apply?

    Thanks to this wonderful community!

    Katie!

      Katie I can’t believe you’re just experimenting with lipstick now I’ve been wearing lipstick since I was like five six years old I could give myself a full makeover by 8 and was I think it looked pretty good all I can say is with your makeup is practice practice practice and practice again for you know if you’ll look totally beautiful 💋

      I use Maybelline super stay Matte Ink. (various colors).
      My favorite is called “Pioneer” #20.  It’s a classic red.
      My second favorite is called “Artist” #120 It’s more Plum “ish”.
      If you want something subtle, go with “Ruler” #80.
      Available on Amazon, and just about everywhere else.
      They wear like iron!  They don’t come off until you TAKE it off, so there won’t be any jealous wives or girlfriends gunning for you (which is a big plus!).
      For that, I recommend Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes.
      They take it off immediately, & they are not harsh on your skin.

      High Katie, practice with any lippy you feel like trying,El cheepo , just try any colour at any price . My wife taught  me to do the mirror test . Pop your lipstick on ,with a very delicate hand and then step forward to the mirror and gently give it a kiss, you will then see the reflection,shape,structure  and colour  of your lips  and you can slowly develop  the lips  from there to suit any makeup  style  and mood you choose ,please do not get frustrated as sometimes it can take a little time as there are many computations and many parts of our faces to style PY xx.

      I find using a lip brush to apply lipstick is easier. It give you more control.

        Perhaps this is a perfect excuse to get your wife better makeup first.   Transparently sneaky, but fun regardless… 🙂

      I love L’Oreal lipsticks, I own about 10.

      Since they don’t break the bank I buy one and if it doesn’t suit I treat myself to another one!!

      Practice makes perfect and have fun!!

      I struggled with lipstick, then “discovered” the paint on alternative.

      After watching demos live and on YouTube, talking to ladies whose lips I admired, having a professional makeup session – and a bit of trial and error (which is still ongoing!), I moisturise my lips, then put on a layer of collageen plumper.

      Next, I define the shape and area with lip pencil.

      The paint or stain is next – lipstick is very sensual, so I would do that next if going with lipstick, but it has a greater tendency to smudge, and it’s harder to be accurate.

      The brush or pad that comes with the stain is brilliant for defining the cupid’s bow, and enhancing the lower lip – my favourite look is high bow “points”, and the lower lip drawn down, and not painted right into the corners – a kind of toned down 1920s look.

      Once dry, a thin layer of stick lip gloss adds a lovely wet look. I’m not a massive fan of matte, but for a particular look, it’s fun.

      I love experimenting with different colours, but gravitate to a shade or 2 darker than my natural lip colour.

      Have fun – the practice itself is so enjoyable, if frustrating at times!

      Love Laura

      I’m going to go to ULTA and hoping they can do something for me.

      Scared, but anxious to learn something.

      I started out by buying Burt’s Bees lip shimmer at the grocery store in the cosmetic aisle. It goes on easy and looks very nice. You can go on youtube and look up videos on applying lipstick. There are many videos for crossdressers showing how to apply makeup.

      I wanted to add that there is a link to a video for beginner’s makeup with this site:
