Among the key factors to crossdressing effectively and convincingly is the topic of makeup, and indeed, I don’t think there’s a crossdresser alive that will get along without some kind of makeup.
However, makeup could be your ally and it may be the reason for your downfall. The reason is that many wannabe crossdressers don’t really know how to apply makeup and wind up looking much worse than they hoped to be. Let’s see what’s the greatest mistake of crossdressing makeup is and how to prevent it.
The biggest make-up mistake crossdressers make is to apply too much of it. It’s easy to get carried away, so I don’t blame you all that much but know that putting on too much makeup is much like placing a sign on your forehead screaming “look at me. I’ve got something to cover “.
Remember, Makeup is supposed to conceal what you don’t want others to see and to highlight what you do want them to see. But putting on too much makeup just highlights everything, including your masculine features.
Think of it in this way, maybe you have seen a really beautiful woman wearing too much makeup? The solution is no. They choose makeup to highlight their natural beauty.
In fact, one of the stereotypes about crossdressers is they wear too much makeup. The best way to avoid it, apart from learning how to apply makeup, is to accomplish it in stages, wondering on every step: does this help me look more feminine in an unobtrusive, beneath the radar, way, or does it seem too much? You might make mistakes in the beginning, but soon you’ll have a real knack for when enough is enough.
