But here's me normally.

And here's my mediocre attempt at being a guy.

These are my girly clothes thrown together to make something at least a little guyish looking. I didn't use any sort of makeup, so maybe that would help? Thanks for any input!
Firstly, you're very pretty! Just thought I'd get that out there

As for crossplaying, I think you've got the body language down, and that's half the battle. For a more masculine look, definitely thicken up those eyebrows! I'd recommend filling it in below your current eyebrow line because men's eyebrows tend to be closer down towards their eyes. For facial contouring, I'd recommend using a darker color right beneath your cheekbones and near your temples because from a quick Google search human!Prismo looks like he'd be a pretty lanky fellow with hollow cheekbones and drawn facial features.

Also a clearer shot of your face would be really helpful. The two you have look dramatically different and I'm not sure if it's the trick of the light/camera or "before" and "after" pics.
