Hi Tumblr! My name is Remy and I’m a trans* makeup artist. A while back, I noticed something that the internet is seriously lacking - good, body-positive, inclusive makeup tutorials for people with real skin and real skin concerns. As an acne sufferer myself, it’s hard to relate to all the YouTube makeup artists with perfect skin! So I decided - why not start my own series?
In order to get started, I need some equipment. I was recently approved to make payments on a DSLR camera but I was hoping I could get some backers for my series! I’ve offered some publicity-based rewards for anyone that’d like to donate!
If we happen to raise a lot of money, anything after the cost of the camera will go straight towards more makeup - that means more tutorials for you guys!
What you’ll be supporting: A body-positive, fat-friendly, trans*-friendly, budget/vegan accessible, cosplay/drag/crossdressing-friendly makeup channel run by a trans* starving college student. And when I say “body positive,” I mean no shaming whatsoever! Everyone is beautiful - makeup isn’t about hiding flaws, it’s about making you look and feel awesome in your own skin. So let’s celebrate that!
The money I make off of my YouTube channel (if any) will go towards my own transition.
I’ll be offering a wide variety of 101-style tutorials such as contouring, eyshadow blending, foundation, covering eyebrows/facial hair and picking colors; tutorials on cosplay, crossdressing and drag; various fashion looks; alternative, goth and cyber styles; some Japanese street fashion looks; and will also take requests!
Thank you so much for your continued support, Tumblr! Let’s see what we can accomplish!
This is Happy Makeup’s blog, which has a handy link to the YouTube channel as well (both of which currently have nothing in them as I have nothing to post at the moment).
Signal boosting is always appreciated if you can’t donate!
