Three Girls Debut at my Grand Opening Celebration!

21 Aug
Beth preps the girls for their debuts and getting to know new friends.

This weekend has been a whirlwind of activity between my grand opening celebration, makeover and transformation appointments, and tgirlnation! My grand opening celebration welcomed three trans-girls who debuted for the very first time as ladies and another girl who wore makeup for the first time! The day’s activities started early at noon and finished after 1 a.m.!

Set-up and Two Fabulous Surprises!

My first guest, Kim, arrived at noon and graciously helped me set up and finalize details for the 7 p.m. party. Kim debuted later that evening looking absolutely stunning and shocking guests that this was her first time out! At 3 p.m., Darcy stopped by to toast to my new studio with a fabulous bottle of Roederer sparkling wine from Anderson Valley. She planned to stay in drab but I convinced her to just try on a few things. Before you know it, she was adorned with a slim shaper corset, panty reshaper, tights, shoes, bra, breastforms, and a wig sipping bubbly wine out of champagne flutes! Shortly after Darcy left, I received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from Sandy to wish me the best on my open house. 🙂

Transformation Pre-Party:

From 4-5 p.m., three girls arrived to transform from drab into fab and two had no clothes of their own. I helped Belinda and Gina dress from head to toe including accessories and then we set out to do the skin care and makeup for all three. Michelle chose a neutral look from the Mary Kay catalog, which fit her personality well. Belinda tried out the new Smoke & Shimmer Eye Wand in Amethyst Smoke. We created an Enchanted Forest look similar to Dawn’s look from the Fantasy and FairyTales limited edition line. Gina went for a light smokey eye look using the Violet Storm creme eye shadow and granite and crystalline mineral eye shadows. We added on the Mary Kay @ Play pink lip crayon and Berry Me lip jelly gloss for a fun, flirty lip look. I snapped photos for the girls to use on their MeetUp profiles.

Party On with Girls and Prizes!

By the time I finished helping the last girl with her makeup, the party was in full swing downstairs. I opened a bottle of Cava, poured myself a glass of bubbly, and started meeting the rest of the guests. After we chatted for a good while, I gave out lots of prizes including free makeup and skincare and discounted products and services. Every girl won a prize in addition to enjoying 10% all of my products and services and 20% off my skin care through this past Sunday. 🙂

After-Party

After girls added their favorite makeup and skincare items to their beauty collections, the girls split into two groups with some heading to Ziegfeld’s/Secrets in DC and other to Freddie’s Beach Bar in Crystal City. Ziegfeld’s/Secrets offers drag shows and male dancers in a nightclub setting while Freddie’s features nightly karaoke in a relaxed bar decorated with flamingoes and Barbies. Both venues are accepting of trans-ladies. I was far too exhausted to attend an after-party–the first after-party I have missed with one of my events. There’s always next time though! 🙂
