Make-up is a key tool in the cross-dresser’s A
Cross-dressing is the act of wearing specific clothing, make-up and/or accessories typically worn by the opposite gender. This is often done with the intent of being perceived by others as a member of that gender. Cross-dressing is done for different reasons, ranging from costumes to gender identity and presentation decisions. The degree of cross-dressing can range from a man simply donning a dress or a woman wearing overalls — to a complete transformation makeover.
Things you need
- MEN (to appear as women):
- Women’s shoes
Wear an outfit that’s tight above the waist, but loose below it.
Observe outfits on mannequins or advertisements to confirm that you will be dressing appropriately. This will help provide some context for what to where. An easy rule of thumb for first time cross-dressers is to wear something tight on top (to show off your bustline) and loose on the bottom (to hide your bulge).
Purchase everything for your cross-dressing adventure. Try on all the clothing to ensure an adequate fit. Give yourself extra time to get ready if you have never cross-dressed before.
Shave everywhere. While actual transgender women possess a full range of body types, from hairless to hairy, societal expectations of smooth skin make it easier to be perceived as a woman if you have no body hair. If your body hair is particularly thick, use an electric trimmer before doing a smooth shave, or spring for a waxing session.
Get into your underwear; panties and bra. According to the YouTube video, “How to “Tuck” For Drag,” tight underwear helps hide your “bulge.” Wear pantyhose to cover up any hair stubble or for extra help maintaining a smooth crotch area. Fill your bra with your stuffers.
Tranform yourself when you step into our perfectly fitting Sexy style lace wrapped chest vest, made especially with transwomen and crossdressers in mind.
Style your hair as close to your head as possible, using hair clips and styling gel. Then, don your wig by gently pulling the front and back edges of it to widen the opening and slip the wig over your head. Tuck any stray hairs underneath the wig, and pin the wig to your head with additional hair clips.
Brush concealer on under the inner corner of your eyes and gently downward across the rest of your face.
Apply lipstick, starting at the centre of the lips and moving outward. Lightly rub your lips together to distribute the lipstick, and pat against a napkin or tissue to ensure you don’t end up with too much.
