i have taken the opportunity afforded me by my recent unemployment to do something I've wanted to for a long time: i have finally made a makeup instruction video!

it's nowhere near comprehensive, but i tried to make the video something for absolute beginners, so you can watch my routine as i stop and explain what i'm doing for you as i go. it's made especially for trans women like me but it's for anyone who's intimidated by makeup imo

please share!

don't feel bad if you're my friend but don't want to watch me do makeup for a whole hour. the reason for the length is that, even though there are some jump cuts, mostly to take out ums and ahs and swearing, i tried not to speed past any of the parts where i'm applying the makeup, so that scared newbies like i was can more easily follow along.

that said, if it's not for you, please boost it so someone who it is for can see it!


your beloved pal triz ❤️

@triz triz I appreciate this but it isn’t for me. however i am very interested in the hypothetical sped up three stooges-esque version...

@triz i cant wait to watch this when i have the time itll be like hanging out with my friend triz zomg

@swirlz this is how i feel when al posts a video :blobcatflower:


oh my god i'm so excited to watch this! the intro is already promising.

so many instruction videos, even not about makeup, do that thing where they start with a set of assumptions that i just don't have if i'm a beginner. like code for beginners always assumes you know how to run a program??? and which text editors to use???

thank you for doing this 💜

@baronnarcveldt thank you! i'm excited for you to watch it lol pleeease tell me what you think, especially if there's anything you wanted me to go slower with or talk about in more detail



ok so i've seen the whole thing and i honestly loved it. you were just as funny and cute as you were going for lol. but again, i really appreciated how basic you were without talking down to me. in fact, you were super validating in so many ways i needed to hear.

i don't know if there are other make up tutorials on youtube /s/, but i'm going to assume you invented the genre with this :D

if i were to request info for a future video, i appreciate what you said about keeping the eyebrows pretty natural, but i would love to see your take on whatever people do with made up eyebrows. like i'm not gonna shave them off, but i need to mow mine down a bit, and i'd like to learn how to color them back in and shape them :)


@baronnarcveldt ahhh thank you for the feedback, i'm glad i didn't come off as talking down too much!! and eyebrows are definitely a weak spot in my game but i'll do my homework and maybe a video in the future! ❤️


@baronnarcveldt heyyy if i were to do a brow video, just hypothetically speaking here 🙃, is it okay if i credit you for the idea? may i use your post? or should i just say it comes from my friend crystal?



Oh my goodness. Yeah shout me out :D lol. That's too kind

@triz omg your voice is so pretty, i'm only a minute in but i love it already

@triz yesssssssssssss 👏🏻👏🏻🥂🥂🥂

@callie how long have i been talking about doing this 😅

@triz oh def as long as I've known you (like 1.5 years?), just goes to show it's never too late to realize a dream

it's inspiring as hell tbh

@callie just took a little help from my friends ✨🥂

@triz im watching in bits and pieces and triz you are so fucking cute. this video is great.

@triz Oh, your voice is so relaxing and your explanations so clear!

It's a make-up routine that I can actually follow 💜

@triz I just finished watching this and I absolutely love the way you lay everything out. Seriously, it's one of the best tutorials I've seen.

You seem to know and anticipate all the fears I had. It's almost like you lived through them or something...

Seriously, thank you for making this. It's super helpful and I'm gonna use it as the basis for my routine.
