Beauty Tips for Transvestites

A transvestite can look just as feminine as any woman. It just takes some extra supplies, techniques and a bit of work. As part of being a woman often incorporates make-up and other adornments, it can be relatively easy to hide the signs of being a man by birth. Most transvestites haven't had the advantage of getting beauty tips from mom or a sister, so they need to learn them as an adult.

Use make-up to transform yourself into a woman. Focus on areas such as the eyes and lips, as they're the most feminine parts of the face. To make your eyes stand out, start by curling your eyelashes and use a judicious amount of mascara. Liquid eyeliner adds to the look, but don't go overboard. When defining the lips, start with lip liner that's slightly darker than your lips and apply a moisturising, sheer lipstick over it. Dot a liquid highlighter on the cupid's bow to highlight the area and make you look womanly.

False Eyelashes

False eyelashes create instant glamour. If you have sparse, thin eyelashes, curling them and wearing mascara won't make them very feminine. Instead of the obvious strip of false lashes, use eyelash glue to adhere individual lashes onto the lash line. Focus on applying them to the outer corners of the eye. Apply mascara so they stand out further.


Shopping for a wig can be a daunting task. Perhaps you already know the style that works best for you and the look you want to achieve. If not, there are some different factors to consider when shopping for a wig. One of those is cost. Human hair wigs always cost more than synthetic wigs. They also look more real and can be styled like human hair. Take into account whether you'll be wearing the wig for informal or formal events. An everyday hairstyle wig is most appropriate for informal occasions.


One beauty tip that's crucial for transvestites to follow is to groom and polish fingernails and toenails. One way to give away your gender is to leave them be. Male hands are usually quite distinctive from female hands. Take the time to get manicured and pedicured, or do it yourself at home. There's no need to get large, chicklet, acrylic nails. If your own nails don't grow well, gel nails are one option. If your nails grow well, file them into round or rounded square shapes. Stick with shades of pink or red for nail polish, and apply long-wearing top and base coats to keep them from chipping.
