Our dear friend Nick came to visit us today. For those who don’t know, he’s trans and wanted me to show him a few makeup tricks to make him look more masculine.
I used a little guidance from the internet. I typed in Masculine Makeup and this wikihow page popped up.
Collectively, we weren’t smart enough to do a before picture so here’s a beforeish picture.
I darkened the hollows of his cheeks and jawline, as well as shaded his forehead to give the appearance of a more prominent brow. I also shaded underneath the front of the eyebrow to give that same illusion – even though it’s hidden under his glasses. Lastly, we ruffled up his eyebrows with some black mascara. This whole process, with the gabbing I was doing (which was significant) took maybe 20 minutes.
It’s very easy to do, uses very few products, and can really aid in someone feeling ever so slightly more confident.
