Step 1: Prep Your Face

you must shave, wash, and prime your face.

Step 2: Gather Materials

Picture of Gather Materials

I am using a coastal scents concealer pallet, as well as kryolan pan sticks for my foundations, you'll need a highlight color, natural skin tone, as well as contour color. Make up sponges for blending, a setting powder, eye liner, false eye lashes and glue, a contour powder, and assorted brushes.

Step 3: Highlight

Use your highlight concealer in your "T" zone to accentuate your face to be more feminine.

Step 4: Color, Contour, Blend!

add your natural skin tone all over the rest of your face,
then go in with your contour stick to contour the areas you want to receed. (cheekbones, foreheard, and nose.)

Step 5: Cook!

Set your highlighted areas with a light powder to set, and leave excess powder over to sit or "cook" to absorb all the color. then sweep excess powder off of face. go over your contour foundation with a matching powder to set those areas as well.

Step 6: Eyes

create a new crease using a black eyeliner, then smoke it out using the contour powder to diffuse the black. highlight under the brow on the bone.

Step 7: Lashes!

Once you've done both eyes, apply the false lashes to both eyes. remember to curl your lashes, and add mascara after.

Step 8: Blush, Lips, Beauty Marks

Touch up any highlight or contour powders that may have faded, add blush (1, 2, or even 3 to create skin tones). you can add beauty marks if desired, and then lips!

Step 9: Hair!

Thank you so much for this! Somebody in my life is mtf transgender and will need to know how to 'pass' while they're on HRT so they don't get murdered for being trans when they need to go out. I worry about them a lot and this is really helpful, thank you again.

I completely agree, I can never look that good no matter how much make up I wear

You have a unique ability to find the femininity in a face, ie; you know what proportion each feature needs to be in order to erase the masculinity behind it with contouring and highlighting. It does prove that makeup DOES enhance beauty: FEMALE OR MALE. Love 2 c more!

Tip: make the hair line more forward and in a devils line way. It looks more natural. I loved the instruct able though.

Absolutely amazing!!! You are an artist!! Your eye make up had me thinking those were false lashes. Are you a make-up artist by trade, and if not, you should be! Excellent instructions!

thank you! I'm not! just started playing with make up last year, I actually did this as part of trying to earn a scholarship into a cosmetology program! never done a tutorial, lets hope I win! (:

I will be sending positive waves your way, good luck! Be sure to let us know the outcome!!!

Stan1y (author)2014-04-14

there are women out there who don't do make up that well. personally I was lost at 'T' zone

hey Stan1y, thank you! your T zone is the shape I made in the picture, resembling a T; highlighting across the cheekbones and down from the forehead down to your chin.
