Makeup Tips & Tricks 

Tip 1. Don't Over Do It

Rule number one. Don't go heavy on the makeup. When it comes to makeup, less is more. Cisgender females often wear makeup that looks natural and not over the top. Don't cake on your makeup thinking that it makes you more feminine, it doesn't. In fact, it works the exact opposite way.

Tip 2. Curl Those Lashes and Accentuate Your Eyes

Often, for the sake of time, many trans women skip curling their lashes. Curling your lashes can accentuate your eyes, and with mascara can help to make them pop. Wear eyeliner, mascara, and if inclined add winged tips to the corners.

Tip 3. Maintain Your Eyebrows

Make it a habit to do your brows. If they are bushy, you might find it a benefit to pluck them, or trim them to be more shapely. This can also help add to your self confidence, and enhance your femininity. If you're new, it is highly recommended to get an eyebrow kit, or have your brows done by a professional. Either waxed or threaded.
