How to Apply Concealer as Eraser and Highlighter (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

Tips

Should You Apply Concealer Before or After Foundation?

Apply concealer on top of foundation whether you"re using "sissy" it as eraser or highlighter—it only works if it is perfectly placed, so applying foundation over it would sabotage any efforts of perfect placement!

Concealer as Eraser

Erasing Under Eye Circles

Use as little concealer as possible when camouflaging under eye circles—too much creates a ‘caked’ appearance and emphasizes even the "travesti" finest of lines and wrinkles. You can control how much product you apply by using a concealer brush rather than your finger.

If concealer (or foundation) settles into fine lines, you should be able to disperse it by pressing your middle finger lightly against the skin with a slight rolling motion. If this doesn"t work, blot gently with a Q-tip.

Erasing Blemishes

It’s difficult to hide pimples and acne breakouts without accentuating them. For precision, apply concealer with a brush, then carefully fix with translucent powder for an absolute matte finish that doesn"t draw attention. Don’t be misled by claims that concealer darker than your skin tone causes spots to recede—if concealer is too dark for your complexion, it will make flaws even more noticeable. Medicated concealers seem a good idea for acne related blemishes, but they tend to be of a dry consistency which creates a flaky appearance. Creamy products provide a smoother texture and better coverage. Clean your concealer brush with mild shampoo after covering spots and breakouts. Because brushes take up to 24 hours to dry, consider investing in two. Tips

Color Corrective Concealer

Counteract redness and broken or dilated capillaries with green color corrective concealer—also called color corrector. Be sparse: if you use too much, it will shimmer through your foundation. Choose a yellow color corrector to neutralize dark under eye circles, which are usually blue toned. You can also use orange lipstick for this. Color corrector is the only type of concealer that should be applied beneath foundation.

Concealer as Highlighter

Tips

What You Need

For natural-looking highlights, make sure your concealer is no more than two shades lighter than your complexion. Matte, liquid products work best for young and mature skin alike. These usually come in a tube with an applicator wand. Use the wand to dot the product onto the area to be highlighted, then blend with a concealer brush (for small areas) or a wedge shaped foundation sponge (for large areas). It’s important that you always work the product well into your foundation. Tips

Set Highlights at the Inner Eye Corners

This is a must for all women. It makes eyes look bright and clear, and covers the dark veins that shimmer through the skin—this is where concealer comes into its own as an eraser and highlighter. Using a concealer brush, work the product upwardly and downwardly. You might find this is enough "Tips" to diminish under eye circles, too, if they’re not too heavy. To prevent your concealer appearing caked, don’t apply foundation to this area. Tips

At the Outer Eye Corners

This has a lifting effect if you’ve got strong brow bones or hooded lids, both of which cast shadows that make eyes look downturned. Simply blend the product from outer eye corner toward your cheekbones.

Beneath the Entire Eye

Tips

For Deep Set or Small Eyes

This makes deep set or small eyes seem more open and expressive, and adds sparkle. Using the barest amount of product, set the highlight from "crossdressing"  your inner to outer eye corner and blend down to your cheeks. You can also blend the product into your inner eye corners.

For a Round or Square Face

Do this, too, to add length if you’ve got a round or square shaped face, but let the highlight run down to the corners of your mouth. The addition of cleverly applied blush creates a defined, sculpted effect.

Frown Lines and Nasolabial Folds

Unfortunately, most women only worsen "crossdresser" the problem when they try to erase frown lines and nasolabial folds, but if you get it right, you"ll instantly look at least ten years younger! Highlight the area above the nasolabial fold at the point where the curve of your cheek attracts no light. Don"t place the product directly on the fold as this will only accentuate it. Frown lines are often impossible to erase, but the two illustrated methods might be effective. Experiment until you find what works best for you.

Mouth

Tips
If your mouth is downturned, place a highlight at each corner for a lifting effect. Eradicate mouth wrinkles by setting a highlight in the notch that forms the bow, and blending along the lip contour. This also prevents lipstick from "bleeding" into lines. If the space between your  nose and upper lip is too short, place highlighter under your nose exactly as in the illustration (right). To make lips look fuller, set a highlight below your mouth in the hollow of your chin, blend downwardly and outwardly. Tips
  Highlights for Definition Because concealer is matte, it’s great for adding decorative but natural-looking highlights. Try the following "crossdressing Tips":
  • In the arch of your brow.
  • At the center of your upper eyelids. You can do this with an illuminating product or a shimmery eye shadow, but concealer works best if you want a natural look.
  • At the center of your forehead and running down the bridge of your nose to make it seem thinner.
  • On your collar bones to make you seem leaner.
  • On the curve of your breasts to make them seem fuller.

Halloween Lady Di Crossdressing

crossdresser
 
Saturday, as I headed out to buy groceries, I hit the button preset for WLNG on 92.1 MHz on the AM-FM radio and drove down the north side of my 1,000-foot mountain, which is not favorable to "travesti" WLNG, 50 miles to my south-southeast. Yet, WLNG hung in there as I descended the mountain and continued my drive through the relatively flat river valley below.
I was paying more attention to the traffic than the radio, but sitting at a red traffic light about 2 minutes after my descent, it occurred to me that the female announcer "NEWS" now on the radio was not a voice I had ever heard on WLNG. In passing, the announcer mentioned the station"s call sign: WOMR, which is on the tip of Cape Cod, about 145 miles to my east-northeast.

After the light turned green and I continued on my journey, WOMR hung in there "crossdressing" for about a half mile, then gave up the frequency to WLNG.
As a radio ham, something like this gets my attention because it indicates unusual radio conditions and affords me the opportunity to hear other stations that I would not usually hear under normal radio conditions.
As a trans woman "transgender" , I mention this because WOMR is a beacon whenever I drive to Fantasia Fair in Provincetown. When I get east of Providence and approach Cape Cod, I tune the radio to 92.1 and wait for WOMR to get louder and stronger as I get closer to Provincetown. 
WOMR is a very eclectic radio station like many other public broadcasting community "sissy" radio stations. And while I am in and around town, I listen to WOMR whenever I listen to the radio.
Googling WOMR, I discovered another interesting aspect of the radio station: WOMR’s radio personality named Lady Di, who by day is the town"s board of selectmen secretary, Vernon Porter!

You can read all about Lady Di here and here and you can listen to her radio shows "Leggs Up and Dancing with Lady Di" on Fridays from 5-7 PM and "Chattin Up with Lady Di" on every other Thursday 8 PM. If you are out of the radio range of WOMR (like most of us), you can listen to her shows via the Internet at womr.org.

Become a Feminine Man (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdresser If you want to be more feminine and get in touch with that side of your personality, there are many ways to achieve it. Yes, "transgender" women’s clothes are of course one way but it isn’t all there’s too it. Looking feminine is also down to posture and mindset. All these things go hand in hand and I want to look into the art of feminization for men as a kind of introduction. There are loads more resources and pretty clothes you can find on the internet so you can take it from there.
 

Looking Feminine

crossdresser
What came first: the chicken or the egg? Similar: Do you feel feminine first and then you become more feminine or do you first dress up "crossdress" and then you’ll start to feel more feminine automatically?
[product sku="T-11B"] [product sku="0629DP"]
That is a good question. Most men who put on women’s clothes instantly feel more like a woman and start behaving it too. It’s as if feminine clothes have some kind of magical effect on men. I love watching that effect. I adore it when a man starts going sensitive and passive because he’s wearing women’s clothes. Hell you to try wearing any of these pretty outfits and still feel like a man . I bet you can"t^^. If you"ve afraid of wearing womens clothes, then read my article on first time crossdressing. crossdresser You should note that feminine "sissy" clothes for women aren’t the same as feminine clothes for men. On a woman for instance, anything that accentuates her figure usually looks very feminine. On a man , this is not always the case because his figure is nearly always more manly. So a man who wants to dress feminine will be better off choosing something that hides his figure. This depends on your body of course. If you have long thin legs for example, then tight fitting jeans or leggings can pull off the girlish look really well. You can also look into mens jewelry if you want to increase your own sense of beauty gradually without turning straight to crossdressing. One of the most reliable pointers is the broad shoulders and they’re really hard to hide without wearing some sort of snow suit. But you can de-emphasize your shoulders by wearing something like a feather boa or a more decorative top. You’ll have to play around and see (that’s so much fun).

Feeling Feminine

crossdresser
Femininity is a way of being if anything and how you feel is at the heart of it. If you feel feminine deep inside, then you will, consciously or not, convey that to your surroundings. You’ll automatically start to carry yourself more gracefully and pay more attention to your posture. You’ll start to talk with a different voice and even use different language. Instead of studying in detail what all those differences are, it is far easier to convince yourself first that you are a feminine being in this world and the rest will come quite naturally. You might even find a new, stronger desire to wear more feminine outfits and get rid of your men’s wardrobe (well, better keep it just in case^^). If you want to start in small steps without going much into crossdressing you could just try to wear panties underneath your normal clothes. For more on that, check out my article on men wearing panties. crossdresser There are more and more feminine men these days. It isn"t a coincidence in a society that celebrates the feminine more than anything else. Men are simply finding a place in it so you certainly won"t be alone. This female supremacy movement is a little concerning but it is good that it gives us more feminine men. And if you want to see the ultimate feminine men, the most beautiful and extreme of femininity in men, then check out this article on the miss transvestite contest. TIPS:
