Crossplay make up for dark skin help!!

ello!

i love cosplaying and have even crossplayed a few male characters but i notice i still have a girlie face. anyone know of any make up tech that can help someone of darker skin? most of the stuff i found helps if you have lighter skin which i dont have. main things are lips, eyes, and eyebrows which im clueless on what to do. and when i do try, i tend to look more girly.

the characters i do are like sora from kingdom hearts 2 and otoya from uta no prince sama.

here are some pics of me to give you an idea of how i look lol

I think the same effects would work, just with makeup that is your skin tone. For instance, if I buy fair makeup because I'm fair skinned, you would just buy whatever you normally buy plus one shade lighter and one shade darker. Then do the same technique everybody does for f to m with shading on the cheeks, nose, and forehead, and find a lipstick that brings your lips closer to your skintone as one would see in a guy. Just focus on how the shading changes the way that your face looks, just like how shading changes how shapes look in a drawing.

btw if you aren't sure where to shade, search f to m makeup on youtube.

I think part of your troubles come from having such a short round cute face? Shading still might help, though
