The great thing about beauty is that it’s genderless and inclusive. No matter your gender identity, if you want to wear makeup, you should. So whether you want to conceal your dark spots, create an everyday soft face, or wear full-on glam, pick up a makeup brush and start doing what feels right to you. Here are some tips to get you started!
Foundation & Concealer
Begin with the basics: Start by finding a foundation that matches your skin color. Prime your face, add color corrector, then finish off with a thin veil of foundation. Lightly powder your face to reduce any oily shine.
Contour & Highlight
Add contour to create dimension and highlight your face structure. The natural contour is hidden when we add foundation, so it’s important to not only create that natural look again but also to emphasize it. Add highlights along your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and the inner corners of your eyes to brighten and amplify your natural glow.
Add eye shadow to create dimension and exaggerate the color of your eyes. Eyeliner can be used to create several different looks and styles. Use mascara to lengthen your eyelashes or use fake eyelashes to finish off with a dramatic look.
If your beard is bountiful but slightly patchy, use brow powder to fill in the patches. If your beard is many colors of the rainbow, use eyeshadow to help fill in and match. Love glitter? Don’t be afraid to add some sparkles to your burly beard.
