A Subtle, Less Scary Way to Wear the Ombre Lip Trend (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdress

Loving the red ombre lip!

I can’t even tell you how often I’ll be scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram and see all these really cool chicks wearing the coolest makeup trends, then get super bummed because I don’t think I can actually pull them off! But even for makeup trends that are super scary, there’s usually a more wearable way to wear them, although we should all just be brave enough to wear whatever we want, whenevever we want. Of course, that’s easier said than done. One of those trends I always “pin” but never wear is an ombre lip. I decided to grow a pair and just try it, and it turns out, I love it! And it turned out to be pretty wearable too! I could walk around wearing this and not feel like a crazy person, even though that’s sometimes a liberating feeling. ?? I love how customizable sissy ombre lips are; you can literally do whatever colors you want, and make them as dramatic as you want. For my lips here I decided to go with red and coral and fairly subtle.

1. Blank out the color of your lips

The first step is to use the leftover product of whatever you used for your foundation to blank out the color of your lips. This will make the lip colors you use more vibrant and longer lasting.

2. Line your lips, and bring in the color slightly at the inner corners

Next, use a lip liner in the darkest shade that you want to use for your ombre (gradient) effect. I used an ancient Sephora Collection Lip Liner in a deepish raspberry that I didn’t realize wasn’t available anymore (sorry about that!). Line your lips, and bring in the color slightly at the inner corners.

3. Blend a coordinating lipstick into the liner

Now choose a lighter but coordinating lipstick color, and put that in the center of your lips. Then, blend it into the liner. Go back and forth between the lip liner and the lipstick a couple of times to make sure the two sort of melt into each other. If you want a more dramatic lip look, choose crossdressing colors with a lot of contrast between each other! I chose a more orange-toned lighter red from the Chris Chang x MAC collection called MAC Vermillion Vee (this one is limited edition, but it’s still available, so snatch it up if you want it now!)

4. For even more ombre, add another color

At this point you’ve got a bit of an ombre lip going, but I wanted a little more. Going a few steps lighter, I used Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in Unapologetic for a bright pop of coral in the center. Again, go back and forth between this and the previous color to really crossdress blend them together well.

5. For fuller lips, add a pop!

To make my lips look a little fuller, I’m using an old trick and popping a bit of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop in the very center of the lips. Champagne Pop was perfect for this look because it’s almost gold, which goes perfectly with these colors!

6. Clean up your lines

To clean up your lines, use a really thin lip brush and some concealer to make things look really sharp.

Clean up!

Phew! That’s a lot of work for lipstick, but I guess it’s like spending time on eyeshadow or contouring or anything else. It’s a really cool look, and I think I just may take the time to treat my lips to something a little extra special every now and then. ?? Next up, purple and lavender!

The finished look!

I hope I made the ombre lip trend a little less scary for you. Do you think you’ll ever give it a try? Maybe even go a little more dramatic than I did?

How to Determine Your Face Shape (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

travesti Knowing your face shape can help you project a more feminine look by matching your face shape with glasses (if needed), hair style, hat, "sissy" earrings, eyebrows and blush placement. Using these items to create a pretty look may seem difficult at first, but it is fun and will help you create a more feminine "crossdress" appearance. Remember, this is more art than science. We are going to create a guideline and helps you to choose the items that may work the best. Your mileage may vary, so feel free "travesti" to make changes to suit you.

Women Who Like Men in Womens Clothes (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdressing

How is that supposed to help you?

crossdressing
[product sku="0629DC"] [product sku="T-11B"]
The fact that I wasn’t born this way but became a woman who likes cross dressers rather late means that, instead of looking for women who openly accept men wearing womens clothes, you could kind of ‘make your own’. As with everything involving people, it won’t always work but I am sure that, given enough chances, most men could make this happen. I also believe it’s probably more successful than going out looking to date women who already say they like men wearing womens clothes. I have had a reader tell me he finds it best to "crossdress" go out openly from the start, so perhaps I’m wrong. But I obviously can’t comment on his experiences. I can say, however, that many ‘normal’ women would reject a man who wears womens clothes openly from the start. I probably would have, if I’d met one when I was 18. But, because of what happened with me, I think many of those same women who dismiss and reject cross dressers, might very well learn to love them if they had the same things happen to them.

How to help your partner to like you wearing womens clothes

crossdressing
The most important thing is how you tell her that you cross dress. If you haven’t yet, then I suggest that you read that article now. In my case, that turned out to be crucial and I am certain this will be the same for most women. I’ve heard many stories about men who keep their lifestyle a secret for many years and then get caught. That, for example, is not the way to go about it. But that isn’t enough. Another important part of the story is that I was completely in love and my boyfriend could have told ma a whole load of things and I wouldn’t have minded. Maybe my attraction to cross dressing men was down to my associating it with someone I love. That could very well be and then it could also work for many others. The problem is, you don’t just want her to put up with you and tolerate you wearing womens clothes. You want her to appreciate it and perhaps even love it as much as you do. I won’t lie to you. This is much harder. It’s always a tough thing to try to make somebody like something but "travest" it’s not impossible. Again, I’ll try to describe how I started liking it and maybe it works similarly for others. Read my article on why I love cross dressers to get an idea. In short, it’s down to him trusting me with such a secret, the fact that I’m attracted to vulnerability in men and the fact that he has a gorgeous body that looks stunning in anything that reveals or flatters his shape. Those three things are what drive me nuts about it and any one of them would have been enough to make me like it.

It’s not just about clothes but also about taste

crossdressing
The fact that men wearing womens clothes is an issue to many people, is mostly down to ignorance and intolerance. We all know that but there’s another side to it that I rarely see mentioned by anyone and that is taste. If you wear something that doesn’t suit you at all then you’re not going to win people’s appreciation. That has little to do with gender. You see, not all women get away with wearing all the clothes they want either. For a laugh, I put on my boyfriends casual wear and it looked absolutely hideous on me even though it was ok on him. Or as another example, try to imagine a very overweight woman with hairy legs, be honest with yourself about how you’d think of her wearing sexy lingerie. And the reality is that most men don’t look after their bodies like women do and so there are a lot more men who aren’t suited to that kind of fashion. It’s not because they can’t become suited or because the male body isn’t suited for it per se, but simply because they didn’t prepare enough. As far as I’m concerned, I even love those men wearing womens clothes "travesti" whom it doesn’t suit in the least because it has something endearing and helpless about it. But this is the part where I’m the weird one and you shouldn’t count on meeting many others with such a preference. Then again, I don’t really know that - just a guess based on my observation of the people I meet. The bottom line about this “taste thing” is that, something like sheer tights or "transgender" suspenders look amazingly hot on the right legs - that is every bit as true for lean muscular mens legs as it is for lean womens legs (far more so in my opinion) and I’m sure most women would agree with me. Please share your experiences or grievances in the comments.

How to Gracefully Wear a Short Mini Skirt (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdresser
Short skirts have manifold benefits. They"re convenient. They"re fun. They"re cute. And they"re very easy to move around in. Short miniskirts are the cutting edge in short-skirt living. They"re extra fun. Extra cute. Extra easy to move around in. And let"s be honest- if you"re not living on the edge, you"re taking up too much room.
  Alas, living on the edge is dangerous. And because "crossdresser" short mini skirts are so... short... the reckless souls wearing them do run a higher risk of looking ridiculous / bad / trampy / gross / distasteful, and downright inelegant. Luckily, miniskirt hazards can be minimized. All you have to do is keep a handful of precautions in mind when donning them. With just an ounce "crossdressing tips" of extra foresight and the right attitude, maneuvers, and mindset, you can wear a short mini skirt with majestic grace- danger be damned!

Get Some Attitude!

crossdresser
[product sku="T-11B"] [product sku="0629DP"]
Apparently, folks have this odd impression that miniskirts are all about making a statement. I personally see "sissy" them as more of a way of life, but to each his own. No matter how you see miniskirts or the wearing thereof, you will have to be prepared to contend with others" reactions to your way of dress. Some will admonish you about hemlines. Others will ask you if you"re cold. Others will say... other stuff. I recommend responding to all critiques and comments with benign ignorance- that"s what I do. But "transgender" you may also choose to respond with evil grins, colorful vitriol, or violent retribution. No matter how you respond to others" commentary on your apparel, you must respond with attitude. You, as a miniskirt wearer, are acting as an ambassador to the world on behalf of all miniskirt kind. Represent us well. We have a reputation to keep up - and develop.

Seating Hazards

crossdresser
Short mini skirts do absolutely nothing to provide a barrier between your pantied bum and whatever surface you sit on. You might not find this to be particularly troublesome, however some surfaces, such as seats on public transport, park benches, and the ground, are not exactly clean. Other surfaces, such as some chairs and benches that are otherwise free of germs, harbor particulate matter that might stick to your skin (especially if it"s humid outside) when it would simply slide off fabric. It is therefore important to watch where you park your backside when "sissy" wearing miniskirts. My general rule of thumb is not to sit down at all. This spares one any contact with unclean surfaces, and ALSO spares one from having to think about what she will place on her lap or how she will cross her legs to make sure that... well, that undergarments are not visible from the front end (because yeah, that"s another unfortunate side effect of sitting in a short skirt).

Watch Those Stairs!

crossdresser
Another thing about wearing short skirts is that stairs are an issue. Or they are if you don"t want people to see too much. So here"s "TIPS" where your ninja skills come into play! Only dart up stairs when nobody else is behind you, and if anyone ever is, maneuver so that you are BEHIND them. If you must walk up stairs in close proximity with another human, and if, god forbid, you cannot walk behind or beside said person, climb as closely in front of them as possible. The further up you are, the more they"ll see. If you"re really extreme (read: cool), you can take the ninja moves a step further by throwing sand into the eyes of those behind you on stairs, so that they are blinded as you ascend (or, if you"re particularly lucky, they tumble down the stairs to your great amusement).

Don"t Get Too Jumpy

crossdress
Some gals like to move around a lot. Kicking, dancing, twirling, jumping... whatever. It"s good fitness. Moving is great, but one must move with care when wearing a short mini skirt. There isn"t a lot of give, as it were. So one "crossdresser" must be sure that the skirt isn"t flying up any further than the one or two inches of leeway it offers, coverage-wise. With a bit of practice, anyone will find that this is most manageable. Of course, one can also take extra precaution by wearing tights for extra coverage. And for ultimate coverage, one can wear leggings. But those somewhat defeat the enjoyment one garners from dangerous, immoral dressing- or at least sneaking about the place wearing practically nothing. It is a trade off one must consider carefully.

Watch for Wind

crossdresser
Weather forecasts help one to know when one ought to don wellies and a raincoat, or to grab an umbrella on the way out the door. Weather forecastsalso aid one in deciding which type of short skirt to wear. If it sounds as though it"s going to be a windy day, you had better wear atight miniskirt. One that won"t flutter too high. Because wind has a way with loose, fluttery skirts. Even if the weather is calm, miniskirters still have to keep an eye out for breezes. Air conditioning vents, exhaust pipes, passing vehicles, and, yes, subway vents, are allresponsible for bursts of air that can lead to lapses in grace (because not everyone is Marilyn Monroe).

Wear Nice Underoos... or Bike Shorts

crossdress
If you"re wearing a miniskirt, rest assured there will be slip-ups. No matter how graceful you are. And if there are going to be slip-ups, you had best be prepared. If you"re the modest type, wear a pair of bike shorts. The pair shall need to be short, since most miniskirts are shorter than the average pair of bike shorts, but they"re still useful! If you"re not so much the modest type, just make sure you"re wearing underpants that would not embarrass you. Like the pair with Barney on them or something. Unless you"re a hipster, and in that case, proceed.

Be Shameless

crossdresser
Gracefully wearing a short mini skirt takes careful foresight. But it also involves a certain amount of reckless abandon. If you"re self-conscious about a short skirt you"re wearing, you"ll come across as awkward- not graceful. But if you"re actively trying to look graceful in a short skirt, you"ll come across as preposterous. The only way to truly wear a miniskirt gracefully is to embrace the hazard. Samurai warriors accepted the fact that, if given a choice between life and death, they would choose death. This enabled them to do everything fearlessly. If you wear a short skirt, you must accept the fact that you will, at times, look trashy, gross, scandalous, and downright wrong. Once you are at peace with this reality, you can finally flaunt the miniskirt look gracefully. That"s just how it works.  

Best Brows for Your Face

crossdress
The correct eyebrow look can make or break the feminine face. An easy male vs. female marker are the eyebrows. Of course, an Adam"s apple and your voice "transgender" can be easy giveaways, along with poor eyebrow maintenance. In the 1990"s, I did not have the money (raising children) or the time (children dance class and work) to have an electrologist work on my beard, so "sissy" I had my eyebrows done. Within one year, I had my eyebrows permanently arched. No one said anything while I had this done. Years later, my youngest daughter stated that she hoped to have eyebrows like mine when she grew up. I just smiled and told her, "crossdress" she probably will. I really like my eyebrows and use an eyebrow pencil to define them. The correct eyebrow style will define and feminize your face. Matching your eyebrows with your face shape has a tremendous impact. The chart above shows the best eyebrow shape for your face. Some of the differences are small but its worth it. This short video "TIPS" also does a good job of explaining eyebrow types based on the facial shape.

5 Makeup Rules ALL Transgender Women Need To Know (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdress Let’s be very clear, makeup can is not an easy art and takes a lot of practice to even start to get good. There is so much to learn about "transgender" brushes, styles, techniques, and products. “What brushes do I buy?” “How do I find my color?” “How do I make my eyeliner NOT look like I put it on while being violently shook?” Luckily makeup can be conquered and you can learn this mystic art that many didn’t get taught when most girls learn. So get a jump start with these need-to-know rules that "sissy" will expand your makeup game.
[product sku="0629DC"] [product sku="6917"]

1. Not All Makeup Brushes are Created Equal

crossdress This is one that almost every woman has to learn at some point. No matter how good you get, bad tools will never get you as far as proper ones can. This doesn’t have to mean you have to spend "crossdressing" obscene amounts of money on a single tool, but you will spend a bit more on many than you expect. I’ll put it this way, if you find a 47-brush kit on eBay for $7.95 shipping from China- don’t get your hopes up. They will work, provided the heads don’t fall off and the brush strands don’t shed, and can be good practice brushes. Much like an old beater car though, once you get the hang of it, you will want to move up quickly.

2. Beauty Blenders are Great, But You Don’t Need One

crossdress You’ve probably seen these glorious little spongy applicators with a rounded bottom, flat edge, and pointed tip. They are amazing for application, blending, and finishing your makeup and are very cool tools. You know what is also cool? That package of 40 sponge triangles you’ve seen in the "crossdresser" drugstore . They are incredibly similar material, and also offer a flat edge and a point for application. And as an extra bonus, if you fold it over- you get a rounded bottom ABSOLUTELY FREE!

3. Brow Abuse is Real

crossdress There is a term I used to hear alot in the early 2000’s for women that over-plucked their eyebrows. It was called “Bleething”, as in Yasmine Bleeth. You have no doubt seen what I mean. Thinning and attempting to even your eyebrows until your forehead appears to have alopecia. And the kicker? If you do it too much, they won’t grow back right or at all. Learn the right "TIPS" brow shape for your face, and stick to it. In fact, you are in luck. Thicker, fuller, and more natural looking brows are now “on fleek” (or “perfect looking”, for English speakers). Back away from the tweezers, and go to a professional waxer to give you a perfect starting point to maintain your brows for best results.

4. Better Skin = Better Makeup

crossdress In everything, the better the surface you are working on- the better the final product. Your face is no exception. If you want the best look possible then you need to make sure you are laying your work down on the best canvas you can. So develop a "crossdressing tips" skin care routine. There are a ton of products out there just ready to overwhelm you. Just know this, good skin care starts with three basic rules. Clean it. Moisturize it. And drink lots of water. Seriously, if you aren’t doing these things as a core routine, then it doesn’t really matter what you do- you’ll never reach your skin’s full potential. And don’t sweat the $40 container of face moisturizer. Yes, some of them absolutely rock. But you can set a good base just by starting to apply plain old moisturizer in the morning and at night.

5. You Have to Learn the Basics

crossdress In order to truly be good at anything, you have to know the basics. This is doubly true for makeup. You need to know how to care for your skin, you have to be able to apply foundation smoothly, you have to be able to blend, etc. If you can’t perform a basic lipstick application, I don’t want to see you going anywhere near attempting pin-up style makeup. If you can’t blend your eye shadow, you have no business trying to recreate the skyline from Aladdin on your eye lid.

6. You Are Already Perfect

crossdress This is the most important rule you need to know. Because if you don’t see how perfect you are already, then you will never be happy with what you see- no matter how much much makeup you put on or how well you apply it. Beauty comes from confidence and personality. That is what shines out. All makeup does is help you express who you feel you are to a greater extent. So if your nose is a little crooked, who cares? Straighten it with contouring, or just rock your own unique nose. Skin isn’t perfect? Spoiler alert- no one past the age of 11 has perfect skin. Trust me- they might have been born with it, but baby, now it is definitely Maybeline. You can always find flaws, so start looking for what you love so you can enhance it and show it off to the world.
