Hey everyone! with a new spring basically here Im feeling the need to go out much more. The fact that we may get close to everyone vaccinated in my province in a few months plus promising numbers showing a downward trend in cases has me sightly optimistic that perhaps this summer we can have life being somewhat close to normal or ideal.

Anyone have any good ideas for make up to make me look a bit more fem? I do pass for the most part but I feel I could definitely use some touch up's. Also if you got good ideas for nice clothing fill me in!

xoxo Ashley

Hello Ashley, I am one of the fraction who feels less makeup is more. I do not have any makeup on in my avatar picture. I am however a strong believer in moisturizer containing as much Hyaluronic Acid, as possible, to be applied every morning and every night. When I go out of the house, I always apply a tinted sunscreen, lipstick and probably a little blush onto my check bones, and most of the times mascara.

I had my eyebrows microbladed, and that makes them to be maintenance free and look good all the time, and I had an eyelid liner tattooed onto my eyelids (and that hurt like hell).

That is all I ever do for makeup, I do not need any concealer or anything else.


Hugs

I use shea butter for my face to moisturize and protect.
And a jade roller routine that is supposed to help. Maybe if I remembered to do it more than once a week.

My half-ass makeup routine is like six minutes.
Primer>foundation>blend>more foundation>blend> concealer and a little pencil on eyes>blend the concealer>some cheek and jaw contour>blend> lipstick>time to go...

Looks best on me when I put a lot of stuff on, in a way that it appears I have notsomuch on.

Young ladies who do it well look great with more eye makeup..
I'm not twenties so been not bothering that. Maybe for special occasion

I like to use Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer, and then Celebration Foundation Illumination foundation powder. It works well for me, and it covers all but the darkest blemishes. A little concealer will help with those stubborn blem's. I had my eye liner done in permanent makeup (tattoo), so all I need for my eyes is a brow pencil, mascara, and eyeshadow. I add a little blush, then my favorite lipstick (Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink). I top it all off with Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, and I'm good to go all day and night.

I like the foundation powders better because they don't feel greasy. I used it after my FFS, and it did well to cover all the bruising.

One of the best makeup tips I ever heard was from a makeup artist on youtube. She said drink a lot of water... all day everyday.

It really does help.

Foundation is super important. The best tip I have is, as a general rule of thumb, is that if you're under thirty then cream concealers and foundations work better than powder and for us girls over thirty powder foundations work better that liquid/cream foundations. A great tip that I picked up is that setting powder can be used as a very good foundation and remember to colour correct girls, it makes a huge difference. If you are going all out on an eye shadow look then I cannot speak highly enough of urban decay's eyeshadow primer but a good concealer will do the job. Another good tip is to match your blush to your lipstick except for when you are wearing red (you will look like a literal clown with red lipstick and red blush) and if you're having trouble choosing a shade of blush then do some light aerobic exercise and see what colour your cheeks go and that should be a good shade for you.

I still do not get it why all of you are preaching about foundation? I have never sued that stuff, and I hope that never will be using it. Moisturizer, a tinted sun blocker, sometimes a little bit of blush and lip color, some mascara, and I am done with makeup.
I have my eyebrows microbladed, and my eyeliner tattooed on.

I rarely put full foundation on, like you said some tinted sun blocker or some good BB cream is fine for day to day but if I am going out out then I go all the way. getting my skin tone even is a big mission, my profile pic is two hours of make up, so I am not fast but I do get good results when I really try. In reality though who be bothered with doing that every day?

Michelle, you look very attractive in your picture. The 2 hours paid off, i would say.
I am one of the less is more women, and have no makeup on with my picture.
But I have different skin than most people, because I did not have a puberty, and still have my prepuberty type skin that has not the blemishes adult skin has develoled. I never had a pimple in my life, but I always have to have sun protection on, if I go outside.

But I have to say, you have your makeup skills down very well.
I used to do more around the eyes, but I gave that up a couple of years ago. I think I have settled more and more into my roll of an older woman. I am at thr vety end of my transition, there is nothing for me as a goal anymore, and I relaxed more.
My only goal now is to find a decent man, or woman to have some good time together.

Hugs

Because you don't have facial hair.

For anyone with beard shadow, foundation (or more) is necessary. I've had enough electrolysis and light enough hair that I can get by with a BB cream or tinted moisture most days and go without often now because of masks. I still use it when growing out for electrolysis

Oh are masks not the best thing ever when you have an electrolysis appointment coming up and you have to go in lady werewolf mode? I am still going with electrolysis and I love them, should be done in around five to six more months but until then I be wearing my mask.

I need a bigger mask. My side burns run all the way down to my neck. I got the Elvis curse. It is a work in progress, but there is progress:LOL:

Progress means pain, but electrolysis produces euphoria afterwards.

Hugs,

I can honestly say that electrolysis is more painful than getting stung by a swarm of wasps, which did happen to me when I was 12... right in the face. I actually couldn't see the next day as my head was like a balloon. I just see it as me taking revenge on what male puberty did to me and that kind of helps separate the pain somewhat

I like face masks, too. I have no hair to hide, I simply did not waste much energy into growing it. But I have not to do any makeup at all except a little sun blocker, when I wear a mask, and that safes me 5 to 10 minutes in the morning to get ready.
