Crossplay Makeup Tutorial by napallama Crossplay Makeup Tutorial by napallama
yup i am practically a pro at being a man nao

/sarcasm

someone on tumblr asked if i could make a tutorial for my makeup from this cosplay:


HEY so a lot of people have been asking about basic makeup skills...
This tutorial assumes you already know how to use makeup. If you don't know anything about makeup, I suggest YOUTUBE VIDEOS.
There's thousands of youtube videos of how to use makeup. Here's my favorite makeup guru on how to get a flawless face: [link]

You'll want to find out what skin type you have (normal, oily, dry, combination). I have oily skin.

Most people use this order for makeup products and it's generally what's recommended:
moisturizer + primer + liquid foundation + concealer + powder

However, there isn't one right way to do things. Experiment and see what looks best for your skin!

Thanks so much! I'm working on a Wirt crossplay from Over The Garden Wall, and this is a super helpful starting point!

I learned that I am more skilled with makeup than I had previously thought. Lucky for me I already look semi male, so this wasn't too difficult XD

As a transguy, and this really helps me a lot. I dont have any foundation atm so I just practiced thickening my eyebrows. I say that it helps me a lot. 

thicker eyebrows: 36.media.tumblr.com/2ccb01aead…;

no: 40.media.tumblr.com/6bd8a4273c…

THANK YOU,  I cant wait to do more with the makeup when I get more.

I want to start crossplaying, but I think my main problem will be my figure as I have a pear shaped body and I think my hips are a bit... (-okay, pretty-) big compared to my torso XD;; What do you suggest to do to hide them?

This is probably one of the better crossplay makeup tuts I've seen; a lot of others simply do their makeup a little bit differently and/or end up looking still feminine, but even at step 4, I would have legitimately mistaken you for a man.

i really love this tutorial!!! i was thinking about the making your eyes look smaller thing tho;; don't you think that if you take a brown liner or something natural and lined the waterline completely, it would make your eyes look a bit smaller?

I think this is the first tutorial I've seen that talks about the squinting and sucking in your cheeks, and I don't understand why all ftm/crossplay tutorials don't mention this??? I could not get myself to look like a legit guy until I used those tips, no matter how I contoured! Thanks a lot for posting this tutorial!
