First time crossplaying makeup advice MTF

I'm completely in the dark when it comes to make up i have no idea how to use it or what i need or what to do with it. I went as Kyouko from Madoka once 2 years back didn't do any makeup or anything special for it turned out ok but i want to go and make it look really nice this year. I want to go out as both female and male ranma this year. These are pictures of what i look like and the makeup i already own.
Any advice on what i would need to focus on and help on how to contour and do my eyes as well as any other make up i would need to buy would be greatly appreciated thank you very much.

First may I just say that you look delightfully androgynous. I have cross played FtM and I found looking at youtube tutorials online very helpful. I was trying to create a sharper look, I have a feeling most beauty make up ideas will help. Good luck.
If I was a cosplay, a perfect cosplay, how would you know it was really me?

Hi! First of all you're really pretty, your eyes are gorgeous! Also apologies ahead of time if this is too late.

Moving onto makeup, you have a lot of the basics that you'll need so that's good. Some things I'd really suggest getting as well, especially to make your makeup last through a con day, is some primer, setting powder, and setting spray. NYX's Photo-Loving Primer (~$13), HD Studio finishing powder (~$10), and matte setting spray (~$8) are all ones I've used and liked. Wet n Wild also has a setting spray (~$2) that works well and their own primers and setting powders with similar price tags, but I can't personally vouch for those. I'm not sure where they sell them in Canada since I'm from Seattle, but here they're at a lot of drugstores. I'd also recommend getting a neutral eyeshadow palette if you don't already have one, and maybe some false lashes for cosplay (they're not as scary as they seem, I promise), but those aren't an essential.

As far as learning techniques goes, YouTube is your best friend. Tutorials are sooo helpful and taught me a lot. Feel free to PM me if there's anything I might be able to help you with. :-)
