If you're looking for trans friendly makeup stores or makeup stores for transgender people you're in the right place. TransFriendly lists thousands of businesses around the world over that welcome and support transgender and non-binary people, including specialists in trans make up.
It’s great to have a good idea of what you’re looking to buy before you enter a makeup store for the first time. Depending on your budget, and how made-up you’d like to be, these lists can vary greatly.
A good list of must-haves for your staple makeup bag include: a good set of makeup brushes (eyebrow brush, foundation brush, powder brush, blush brush), beauty blenders/wedge sponges, an eyebrow pencil or powder, eyeliner (gel or pencil), eyeshadow (pick a palette with a few colours in light, medium/dark shades, and a highlighting shade), mascara, colour corrector, foundation, translucent powder, contouring powder, blush, and whatever lipstick or lipgloss you’d like to wear!
This list can seem daunting and exhaustive, but as soon as you’re prepped with everything you need, you’ll never need to buy this much again! Simply topping up and switching products as you’d like is all you’ll need. And don’t be afraid to ask a TransFriendly member of staff to help you with any colour matching or advice on makeup!
Generally, if properly stored in a cool, dry place, most unopened and completely sealed makeup should last for 2 to 3 years. With that said, creamier products that contain oils or butters, like cream concealers or liquid blushes, could turn earlier because oil can go rancid. All make up products are required to display a small picture of a tub on their product, which will have a number inside, indicating the length of time between opening, and when you should discard your product. If your product reads “12M” this means you have 12 months to use your product!
The first use of prototype cosmetics is usually traced back to the ancient Egyptians; many Egyptian tombs contained makeup canisters and kits. However, many of the present day makeup manufacturers were established during the 1920s and 1930s, in which they became far more popular. Lipsticks were one of the most popular cosmetics of this time, more so than rouge and powder, because they were colourful and inexpensive.
