Help?

So, I have this really girly and chubby face.

I mainly cosplay guys, but every time I do, everyone says I have a "girly" face. (Yes, even with my binding.) I've tried many make up tutorials, but they all seem to fail. I even tried getting a friend, who is a professionally make up artist to help, but I still have this really "girly" and chubby face.

Is there anything I can do to fix this or am I screwed?

I mean, usually anime characters look pretty androgynous to begin with. Do what you can, but don't fret over it too much. Be you being you being a character. :O

You've done your best, People can't change what they're born with. I wouldn't say you're screwed, but it's something you'll have to deal with.

Cosplay whoever you want anyway.

Reminds me of when this girl during a con did my make up while i crossplayed female natsuru, and she said something like: "Now you at least look like an ugly girl instead of an ugly guy in girl clothes"

My face isnt exactly geared towards doing female characters all that much, but on Halloween I go everything except the face and my voice right enough for most people on the street assuming I was a girl, until I opened my mouth that is.
Maybe you can get the same done, be manly in everything except the face and maybe people will ignore the face and assume you are a guy with a girly face then.

So your problem must be your cheeks, right? If your cheeks are what what makes your face chubby then you can try chewing gum very, very often. Chubbyness comes from baby fat, and while you chew gum you burn fat and it helps you getting more prominent cheekbones, which may be what you're looking for, right?

You can't reduce fat in any one area. All working one area does is make the muscles there stronger. When people try this to make their thighs/arms/whatever thinner, all they end up with is muscle under their fat.

But yeah, my PiC has a face shaped similarly to OP's. It's not baby fat, it's genetics.

I have a chubby face and I regularly chew gum. So nope. <.<
Face fat is fat too. Adults don't have baby fat. Just adult fat.

I've also got very round cheeks and big eyes, plus I'm short, so I can't pass at all unless I want to cosplay shotas, and I hate shotas. I don't really do crossplays any more because of it. You, however, might want to look into contouring- here's a tutorial I found.
