I’m looking for a place to help me turn from a man to a girl makeup wise. A place that would do my makeup for me. I want to look like a girl for Halloween, but don’t know how to use makeup. I live 2 hours west of the twin cities in Minnesota.
There are two ways you can go about this.
You could visit a transformation service, but unless I am mistaken there is only one in the Twin Cities: La Femme Mystique. I visited with Rebecca and had an amazing time. Rebecca knows what you mean when you say “boy to girl”.
The other option is simply scheduling a makeover. Don’t look at a makeover as a “boy to girl” transformation. When you schedule a makeover, think of your goals. If you simply say “I want to look like a girl”, well, that’s kind of vague. Every girl looks different from one another, and you and your artist will likely have different ideas about what you want.
When I get a makeover, I am usually asked these questions:
“What are we thinking today?”
I let my artist know what kind of look I am going for. Do I want something dramatic and intense and bold? If so, I am looking for heavy eyeliner, probably a smokey eye or a cat’s eye look. I usually want bright red lips and wear false eyelashes.
“What colors are you thinking?”
This question usually refers to what lipstick and eyeshadow shade I want. Most of the time it will compliment whatever outfit I am wearing.
“What are you doing today?”
This question is usually in regards to what I am planning on after my makeover. I am going to the mall? If so, perhaps something casual or an everyday look. Do I have a photo shoot? Some makeup looks better in photos than others. Am I going to be outside? If it’s hot out then a setting spray is essential.
When I get a makeover, I think about what I want in specific terms. What I ask for includes these things:
-Color correction (an orangey shade that covers my jawline and under my nose to counterbalance the blue-ish tint that facial hair creates) before my foundation).
–Contouring -(my facial structure is pretty angular, so I like my facial features to appear a little more round)
-Eyebrow shaping and definition
-Overdrawn lips (a lip liner just outside of my normal lip shape and then filled in with lipstick to create fuller lips)/
There are a lot of places to get makeovers in the Twin Cities. My go-to places are Rita Ambourne and CaJah Salon. Of course, places like MAC, Ulta, and Sephora also are an option for girls and girls like us.
Have a question for me? Oh yes you do. Ask me here!
