Male makeup frustrations

I am a 60 year old male that wants to start wearing makeup band I have worn lipstick before and I was applying a nude/natural lipstick and using lipliner for the 1st time and it ended in frustrating disaster. It was like I never put on lipstick before. I so want to be like the other men I see that apply makeup so well and so good wearing it. I swear if I went to Sephora and got color matched along with be made over and then went home and followed the instructions to the T it would be a disaster then and always.

Don’t give up! It’s all about practice. One tip I received when I first started was to do makeup at a vanity, desk, or table. Somewhere where I can put my elbows down so that my arms are steady. It helped me so much in applying everything evenly. 

Re: Male makeup frustrations

I looking at a photo of me wearing lipstick on Facebook and I think my face looks like crap and there is not enough makeup even in the hands of a professional that could make me not look like crap. It makes me feel unhappy and frustrated to say the least. I so want this but I think it will never happen
