A girl doesn't need makeup to be a bimbo, but it does help a real lot. Plus, makeup is really fun and wearing lots of makeup will make you feel better about yourself. The more makeup that you use the better you'll look and the more that you'll show the world how important your looks are to you. People will notice and admire you because of your makeup skill. They'll see you as a bimbo who has it all and it will make so many women jealous.
Learning how to use makeup is not something that you can't master overnight. It takes a lot of practice and a willingness to try different things. Fortunately, there are a bazillion of makeup sites on the Internet and a bazillion YouTube videos that can show you almost everything you need to know about makeup.
Tanya Burr. Tanya shows you how to do looks inspired by well-know woman like Kim Kardashian, Doutzen Kroez, and Katy Perry. She offers suggestions on what tools to get, and her top picks for mascara, what products are awesome, like what to get for a MAC "starter kit." She instructs you on how to match your foundation, how to make you makeup last all day, and a whole bunch of other things.
If you want to pick up some books, I'll recommend to you the books recommended to me: Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin and Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro from Bobbie Brown (of course!). I own both of these and learned a whole bunch from them.

Speaking of woman's magazines, reading them is a great way to help learn what makeup styles are in fashion. Yes, makeup has styles just as there are style trends with clothing. For example, for a lot of the 1960s, it was all about super long lashes, thick cat eye liner, pastel shadow, and frosted pale lips. The seventies was when natural was in so the makeup trend was "less is more." We did a u-turn in the 1980s with heavy makeup - day glow lips and bold colored eye shadows. This, in turn, was replaced with the grungy heroin chic makeup styles of the 90’s. By making it a point to go through woman's magazines each month, you'll be keeping up with the latest looks.

Even the closest shaves will probably still leave a shadow, so you'll probably need to use a bread cover. Dermablend is a commonly used beard cover - that's what I used before I have my facial hair zapped away. There may be better products now available, so ask some of your drag friends what they are using lately. If you don't have any drag friends, start going to drag shows and make some girlfriends! One of the biggest things with using beard cover is to get multiple shades. Get some that best matches your natural skin color and then get a shade darker and a shade lighter. Why? For a bunch of reasons. The first being that you can use the different shades to help contour your face. The second reason is that your skin tone will change throughout the year depending upon how much sun you get. Third, is that you may not have done as good of a job matching your skin tone as you had hoped...
After you start getting the hang of doing your own makeup, go get a makeover! Makeovers are super fun and the makeover artist can talk you through what they do so you can reproduce the look on your own. If you can find one that does a lot of t-gurls then you'll probably have a better experience. Bring your makeup kit with you so that they can see what you are missing and what should be replaced with better product.
If you have never before put false lashes on, it will take a bit of getting used to. If you can trust yourself not to poke out your eye, putting them on with tweezers is often easier than with just your fingers. The most common new girl mistakes with false lashes are to use too much glue and to not wait a minute or so for the glue to get tacky before setting them on your eyes.
I have tried all different types of false lashes and don’t see any real difference between those that are cheap and those that are expensive. I just buy a bunch when I see them on sale. I usually try to buy the ones that come with their own single use tube of glue. This way, I don’t have to worry about the glue growing yukky bacteria in it over time.
You’ll have to be constantly on the alert to avoid doing anything with your hands that might break a nail. You’ll have to keep filing them smooth and to make sure that they are free of burrs. Most likely, you’ll have to use a nail strengthening product, like Nail Envy. Having to religiously pamper your nails is a wonderful obsession for any bimbo to have. It reinforced your devotion to being a bimbo and the long nails loudly announce to the world how much of a girlie girl you are!
If you can’t commit to acrylic nails, then at least go out and buy some press on nails! I like the Easy Step Stick on Nails by Kiss since they stick pretty well without having to use Crazy Glue and I can easily pull them off without damaging my nail beds. They usually cost $5 - $7 for one pair and $10 - $15 for a double set. Occasionally, I see them on sale for less but very often.
Whew! It seems like there is so much to all of this and there is. But don't worry about that - makeup is so much fun and isn't fun part of the reason why so many people admire bimbos? Girl, go have some fun!
