My first FtM makeup tutorial. by Sock-Monkey-Renegade My first FtM makeup tutorial. by Sock-Monkey-Renegade
So sorry if it sucks then.

A lot of people ask me about this, so I figured it's time to share my secrets! XD (yeah, "secrets")

Basically, I don't actually look like a man. It's a very clever illusion, and one that apparently works seeing as I often find myself getting dirty looks in the bathroom at cons ("I swear, I belong here just as much as you!" TwT). But still, it's a ILLUSION nonetheless. This pretty much just describes what I do, but it's obviously is going to vary a little from person to person. Take what you will out of this, I am in no way shape or form saying "THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE A MAN!"
Also, if you need more resources, this is a great read:

Good luck with your makeup then!

I'm a guy who looks a bit childish. Well, I'm only 14, so I could use this. This is very useful, thank you very much. BTW: I LOVE David Tennant. :D

Wow! This is fantastic! I'm in the early stages of ftm and have a terribly feminine face, so this was incredibly useful. Instead of a young woman, I now look like a teenage boy, which is satisfying enough for my early stage. Thanks!

THIS IS CREEPY. You made a girl turn into my favorite Doctor. D:

I hope to use this sometime in the future, though. Either for cosplay or for those times I just want to make people confused about what gender I am.

Oh wow! Thanks so much for this tutorial! I'm in the middle of putting together a 10th Doctor cosplay and couldn't believe you were referencing David Tennant for this tutorial. It's perfect! :D

Once I get my wig, I'm defniately going to do a bit of make-up shopping and testing out this tutorial. :D

And yes, Tennant was who I was cosplaying as the most at the time when I made this, and the person I really honed my techniques to make myself look like, so it made sense to reference him in the tutorial. XD

Don't you just hate it when you want to go out and buy cosplay stuff and play around with cosplay stuff but it's too late to do so? DX That's what your tutorial did to me. :XD:

You. Are. Awesome.
Not only do you cosplay the 10th doctor, you made a Naruto reference as well!
Why are you concealing your freckles? Freckles rule the world!
(especially since you're cosplaying someone who has freckles. )
I don't have itsty bitsy plucked out of existence eyebrows, but they're not bushy either.
I have a lot of trouble cosplaying males, because my face is very feminine, as in pink full lips, big brown eyes, and sweet features.
Oh, and my face is shape like a heart too.
It works wonderfully when I do my highly feminine, porcelaine doll makeup, bu tthe best male i've ever been able to do is androgynous instead of masculine.

Hahah, I just normally conceal my freckles, habit I suppose. I've stopped doing it when I cosplay as Ten and Dean Winchester though, because yeah... they actually have freckles.
But thank you very much, I hope I helped!
