Unhappy I want to crossplay but I have a really feminine face... helpp

As what the title says, I REALLY need help. I have a really small, round face and my whole facial features are just too feminine. I also realized it just now when I did makeup and tried for a standard male face. I still looked like a girl. I want to cosplay Yamaguchi from Haikyuu but my face is killing me. Tips?

Could you give us a picture? that would help tremendously.

I also suggest looking at theater makeup books, they give good step-by-step for stuff like this!

unfortunately its an animated gif, but its one of the better refs for face feature

but yes any advice to paint your face needs a referance of your face

my thoughts though is that anime isnt drawn much with genderd face
with exception of characatures like "strong men" or "vixen"
(or maybe im art blind and dont really notice)
so i wouldnt get too caught in matching the characters face
protip* when using wikia, click image to bring up slideshow, click image name top left,
and select size options (if available) till you find one of appropiate size

disclaimer* im not an expert, i simply add in my "2 cents" having a second opinion is always a safe bet

Look on youtube for crossplay makeup tutorials, Yamaguchi is a popular character from a popular anime, maybe there is a specific tutorial for him, or another character from Haikyuu
Upcoming Conventions: Daishocon, Anime Detour, Wizard World Minneapolis, C2E2

Yennefer- The Witcher 3
Magik (Phoenix Force)- Marvel
