Well, with the new stuff, I have another update. I feel it was a step forwards, but also a step backwards. Pluses some places, but negatives other. Negatives I know about are:

- Contouring for some reason didn't show up so much on camera.
- Eyebrows kicked me in the rear again. :/...
- Think I lost some of the "femininity" I had in the previous set of pics I had going for me.

Plus sides?

I think the cakiness has gotten better. Starting to look a bit more natural too I think.

- Outfit of choice might be a bit out of place, but I ran out of things to try.
- Changed back into my regular clothes and took a few shots as well. A couple came out pretty nice I think.



My goal for tomorrow and the next few days thereafter is instead of an all out dress up thing, I am going to strictly work on one thing, and hope to advance that all day long.

Also thinking on getting my eyebrows threaded. A friend IRL of mine recommended me to do that. Probably WON'T do it, but have been giving it thought.

Either way, while my makeup is starting to look less messy, the complete opposite can be said about my desk. I have so much makeup all over the place, I am kind of lazy to clean it up. I see why women leave it all over the place sometimes.

My only critique is the cheek contouring comes too far down. Take it back 1- 1 1/2 inches and it will look better. I don't know what you've used, but blending some face powder on top will help diffuse it further.
Good luck!

Only face powder I have is far too pale tone, lol. I'll need to see if they have anymore elsewhere without loosing my skin color. Yeah, I know you said that, but my cheeks are right there. D:..... Then again, it IS about illusion, huh? s:.... I'll give it a go tomorrow. s: I had that in my mind doing all that too.

Thank you as always PSY.

Wow, the progress you've made is incredible. It really shows how much practice can make perfect. It beats the hell out of my crappy "do it the night before" routine I did at AAC. Like...wow. I hope I can get it down that well by AB2013 too...

Kinda proud here. Flash pictures came out better this time, and I even have a pretty tomboyish girl look going in some pictures, specifically, this one:

And a few others tonight:

I am actually proud of myself now. Perhaps now I should work towards a cosplay and practice the makeup for that. I appreciate all this help I got here, the other forum, and from youtube. I progressed so far, I never expected to get this good. s:.... Just hope once I get a cosplay going, I can swing the makeup. As for now, yay!

Wow, the progress you've made is amazing. It sure beats the hell out of my crappy "do it the night before" routine I did at AAC. I'm definitely taking notes from this thread. I hope I can see it in person at AB2013!

Thanks Ratikal! Yeah, I know, ain't it? .... Practice practice practice.... all I can say. 4 pages of updates, suggestions, and youtube videos here really made a difference.


We will see. I don't plan to put what I learned to waste. c:

Agree this transformation is wonderful!

My only critique is to mix the contour color with a shade that's lighter. It still looks a tad dark for your skin. And the line seems a bit too low on your face. Looking at drag makeup, it should start at the top of the ear, and go straight, at a 35-40 degree angle. I would recommend looking at celebs with lots of contouring, and see what it looks like. For example, Tyra Banks, RuPaul, Beyonce, etc. Gossmakeupartist on YouTube had wonderful contouring videos also.

You're so close. One or two more tweaks, and you're there!

Lol, I dunno how I can do that. D:.... I would fear of ruining the color I have already going. D:.... At the same time, it might be something like some concealer or the powder I am using or something making that look like that. I dunno really, lol. Funny thing is, up close, I saw that it DID look a bit dark, but in the pictures, I can't tell. O_o..... You must have really good eyes, or a missed something, didn't I? ....

Yeah, this contouring, I followed "TheMakeupChair" on youtube. s:... Tried to follow steps a bit more clearly this time, even for my eyeshadow. Like I said though, bit by bit. ... just from here, I really need to find myself mastering this and that, other than doing them and celebrating. Outside of a contour update, I don't think there is really much else I can do for updates from here though. >.o....

Yea, being a, I guess you'd call it "beginning MtF" (I don't like saying it that way, but it's the only way I can think to say it lol), I will be needing all the help on make up I can get lol

I will also be doing a MASS ammount of female cosplays in august, so I need to learn exactly what you posted this this thread about. Can you say life saver? lol
