Oh my gosh, I went to Mac yesterday, I had so much fun picking out make up and eyeshadow. Me and the lady were just having a blast......... we were talking about how Steamy is amazing, this metallic green, but they were out of it. So I got a neurtral silvery one......... I also got this amazing foundation.... NW20 (I know, I am very fair skinned). It was so much fun!!!!!!!! I didn't feel weird at all being a guy and doing it. I was just myself, buying make up

Tonight I might go in crossplay to a bar and do Karaoke........I translated somewhere over the rainbow into Japanese and want to sing it....... either that........or I am doing a Gundam Seed song......like Find the Way....

MAC is one of the BEST cosmetics lines available, plus they have a very friendly policy about crossdressing/crossplaying customers.

I visit them once in a while for a free color consultation/free lesson and always end up with some free samples of the products they suggested for me.

It is not cheap when you are going to buy the stuff, but their quality and service can't be argued.

Good luck...

Speaking of makeup, I've just begun my own little self study on how to do it all. I have "Making Faces" and "Power of Makeup" both of which are really interesting. Can anyone recommend other books to look into?

I have plenty of experience with theater makeup, last year I was the head make up artist at a seasonal haunted house - I can make spooky just fine, but I have little to no experience with makeup designed to be pretty. ^^;;

I’m also very interested on any advice on how to change the shape of your face, and gender illusions with makeup. A good friend is learning to be a drag king, so she and I are trying to make some time practicing opposite effects on each other.

Where can you find MAC products? I'm afraid Utah is still a little “behind the times” on general tolerance, so any store that supports an open mind would win my business. ^_^

Glad to hear you had so much fun shopping!

You should ask them, but it seems that none of those three carry their "PRO" line. Maybe they can order them for you.

Good luck

My mom wears and swears by MAC (She says she loves what it does for, of all people, RuPaul and Lil' Kim). And since we're about the same skin tone, I could go MAC, should I decide to crossplay (Or, at least, need a little touch-up for pics or some stage make-up).

And, Yukito, we want pics!

mmmm... yummy MAC make up is absolutely fabulous and definately worth the money. luckily i have friends in the biz who can sometimes give it out for free! heehee *bats eyelashes*
...on the other hand, Manic Panic has alot of really interesting make up and wigs too, for the colorful characters of the anime/j rock world. don't forget them. if i can't wear my make up, i'd rather not wake up.....

Glamour is your only Weapon

Heh, I have a funny story from last week about my make Up.........I was going to the club and I couldn't find it and I realized my Dad........ well moved my make up and stuff (feels weird to say) out of my room. I yell downstairs "Dad, have you seen my make Up, I need it so I can look cute to kiss guys". It was a half joke....... my Dad is amazing. I was just going to yell "Dad, where's my make up" but I imagined like this Tv moment........ "A Dad's worst nightmare......" and that would pretty much be it. You know what.......... my Dad is indeed the most amazing person in the world........He even let me style a wig on him............. here is a picture of that........ isn't he the coolest.

Oops, I forgot to say......... did anyone see that random post from that guy............... the mods (bless them) made it disappear, but this guy just came on here and said some messed up thing. It was something like...... I know what you mean, I had the same experience except not in a gay faggy way, it was when my gf was done giving me "term for oral sex" and her make up was all over my "word for male genitalia".

I was just confused............. it was rather amusing except I just don't like people oppressing anyone anyway.
