Someone wrote…

Sometimes I put on makeup.

Not eyeliner, or blush: no, I use foundation. The purpose of this? To make my face look more masculine than it really is. It turns out that you can do quite a bit with some colored powders.

It’s a bit addicting, but it’s the only thing that makes me feel better about my gender identity.

Who would have thought that the one thing I always thought I hated could be my salvation?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Can you post a video of you doing this? Or recommend a good video which teaches make-up techniques like this?

    As much as I hate the stuff, if I can use it to my advantage, I want to try it.
