Waxing can cause irritation or redness since it pulls at the skin and the hair, though permanent damage isn't really something to worry about when you're waxing correctly. Just out of curiosity, what kind/other makeup items are you using in conjunction with your concealer when you crossplay?
I usually use a layer of concealer, foundation over everything then bronzer and blush to contour my face. I still need a bit of practise anyway, but having to cover half my jaw with concealer's making it rather difficult (I have to make my makeup too heavy to look real to hide the shadow).
Well, I'll give waxing a shot and avoid it if it causes too much irritation. Thanks for the advice everyone.
