Double crossplay makeup?

Hi everyone,

So for an upcoming con, I'll be cosplaying as Kouno Tooru from Princess Princess. Tooru is a high school boy who has a school job that involves crossdressing as a girl. I'll be cosplaying one of his female outfits shown here (He's the blue-haired one in this picture)-> http://www.zerochan.net/45604

I don't know what to do about the makeup for this cosplay. I'm a biological girl with pretty feminine features, but I don't just want to do girl makeup and have it read as just "girl." Any tips?

Thanks!

I so want to do a double crossplay. My biggest suggestion is eyes and things that males find it hard to change. I would do masculine eye makeup as per the tutorials around here, pretty thick and dark lines, and then on top of that do the female makeup. I would also still pad the shoulders to give the suggestion of broader shoulders. Consider emphasising the Adam's apple. Just subtle hints at masculinity without overdoing it.

I don't know, for that particular picture it pretty much reads as "girls" with only very slight stylistic hints that could be chalked up to something else.

I'm not sure I would really bother because it seems like they're supposed to read as girls anyway.

What you could do, if anything, will HUGELY depend on your face shape and what you have to "work with".

Thank you both for replying!

To Chryso: Could you clarify exactly what you mean by "masculine eye" and "female makeup" with specific examples (contouring, eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc.)?

To Kelley: I have an Asian round face with undefined cheekbones and average-sized eyes. So I guess my main concern is to get a more leaner facial shape like in the picture and not so doll-like.

I would use this as a medium between masculine and feminine except I would also put on fake eyelashes on top of this to tip it towards female: http://kitsunesqueak.deviantart.com/...-Boy-280408611
Hope that helps.

If you post a picture of your unmade up face AND some of your efforts we can help you further.

For your own learning here is the difference between male and female makeup:
