    Elizabeth,
    Your work is truly awesome and thank you for a wonderful experience. I just felt so comfortable and the outing is truly a fabulous touch to help those of us starting out with our feminine presentation. Self confidence is a road block for me, but you made me feel so comfortable, I am ready for more.
    I will be scheduling a shopping trip, soon!
    Thanks again.

    Beth gave me first makeover experience and I am most grateful for her attention, kindness, and ability to a person at ease. I felt appreciated and accepted. In short, I’m sorry I did not try this sooner.

    There are not enough words in the English language to describe my most memorable day with Beth yesterday! This was my third visit to see Beth for a makeover and photo session. I was very excited for my third session and I expected yesterday’s visit to be similar to the previous two. However, Beth took my experience to a whole new level and I am still floating on cloud nine this morning.

    She is an expert in makeup and wardrobe design and when I got the chance to look in the mirror and see her work, I just stood there in a magical trance with the biggest smile on my face. I jokingly said something like, “I wish I could go out so others could see what you’ve created” and she came back with, “well, why don’t we?” I shrugged it off at first because my nervous anxiety level hit an all-time high at the thought of going out in public, but she told me all about her community and the LGBT-friendly restaurants, bars, and shops in the area. After about an hour, I worked up the courage to accept her suggestion and we headed out the front door.

    She took me to a place called The Republic in Takoma Park and the people and environment there could not have been more inviting and welcoming. I thought I would hide out in a dark corner table, but instead, we grabbed two stools at the bar and enjoyed some nice wine over the next couple hours. Everyone there, to include both the staff and the customers, treated me just as “normal” as if I were there as a guy in my usual clothes. I was truly treated as a lady the entire evening and ended up chatting it up with a few other folks at the restaurant. It was an absolutely amazing experience that Beth provided for me and I hope her other clients will consider doing the same. I can’t wait to go back and do it again!

    You are so wonderful, Beth! Love you, Girl!

    I just had another makeover with Beth. She is great. She has recently brought some new dresses that I just adore and they fit me great. So after arriving it was so quick to pick out what to wear. She again worked her makeup magic and turn me into a beautiful lady. She used pink on me this evening. After she finished giving me a sexy pink lip it was off to take some photos. Beth is a natural behind the camera. She knows how to help a girl feel so girly. I can’t wait to schedule another visit with her.

    I hope we all realize how lucky we are to have Beth in our midst, I used to have to travel to Vermont, Massachusetts and other long distance destinations to become a woman. I could only get away 4-5 times a year but with Beth so close, it WILL be much more often. Also, not all salons offer the “going out” option she offers, we are truly blessed for her presence! I am so looking forward to adventures as a woman with Beth. BUT I save the best for last. Her makeup skills are some of the best I have ever experienced! ( I have been to 18 salons over the last 20 years.) They are just so pretty, feminine and lady like and she can customize for any look you are looking for. DO yourself and become a lady with Beth’s help, you won’t regret it!!

    I really want to let everyone know what a great person, makeup artist, lifestyle coach, support person Beth is. I recently visited Beth in her new studio for a day of makeup lessons as well as time for a shopping trip en femme. The day was a ‘customized’ day created with a few back and forth conversations that included lessons, wardrobe/sizing consultation and a shopping trip for makeup and other items as time allowed. I added a second visit the following morning for a critique and correction to the makeup application I performed the following morning. This was prior to a trip to the Smithsonian museums, and memorials and eventually a flight home to the Austin Area.

    Having recently loosing my supportive wife of 37 years, retiring and relocating to the Austin Texas area I find that I am a great number of cross roads in my life. Mary was supportive but had no desire for me to leave the house. Through all these changes I confided to Miranda my daughter about who I am. She was 100% supportive and wanted to go out and about with me. I am a previous client of Beth and I turned to her again for makeup lessons. I mentioned this to Miranda and she wanted to go with me for support.

    We flew in from Austin and arrived at Beth’s studio at our appointed time. After a few moments of chitchat and looking through items I brought with me I got dressed in a mix of my and Beth’s clothing for the lesson. We discussed the look I was going for and the image I wanted project. Beth reviewed my complexion, my late summer tan lines and color pallets that may work. Beth worked on the right side of my face going into great detail on brush used, the intent of the makeup application and technique. I then mirrored her work on the left. We went as slow as required for me to successfully apply each step of makeup. I found Beth to be more than patient and willing to work with me on areas where I struggled. The lesson with a complete set of instructions and listing of cosmetics along with the brushes needed for each area of the face. We then drove over to Tysons Corner Shops for our shopping trip.

    I was a bundle of nerves as we walking into Nordstroms. It was my first time out in a very public place. Both Beth and Miranda were support and before we crossed through the store my confidence jumped significantly. We purchased the cosmetics, making a couple pallet changed due to inventory issues and discontinuation of some shades. We then cruised the mall and hit the stores this plus sized girl needed to shop at. We went to Spanx and tried on and purchased a couple items. We also visited Soma for a bra fitting and I grabbed a couple of bras. I never realized how accepting shop staff were and how much easier it is to find clothing if you first try it on. We returned to the studio and I returned the few intimates I was wearing and in place put on my own. Then with a great suggestion from Beth Miranda and I went to Republic for a late dinner. Apparently Maryland requires carding in bars so when asked the waitress looked at the ID and said thank you ma’am.

    The next morning I applied my full makeup for the first time. Beth guessed it would take two hours and she was correct. After getting dressed we check out of our hotel and made our way to the studio. Beth was very supportive in her critique and let me know that any correction required was in the last 2% of technique and is not required for casual meetings of people. We spent about an hour going over the few items she spotted and the corrections were simple with a couple corrections being created when I cleaned up a couple mistakes earlier. We had time for a few photos and hugged and said our goodbyes. We were on our own for the day and return trip.

    We Ubered to one of the Smithsonian museums and stood on line for a few moments. The guard checking handbags handed my purse back and thanked me for attending with Ma’am. There was one middle school field trip in the museum and I was fretting getting called out but no one said anything. From there we walked the Mall to the Lincoln Memorial on a somewhat windy day. This caused me to continually mess with my wig. Miranda suggested I head to a wig store this week to get a scarf or something for windy days.

    We purchased a meal in the kiosk near the Lincoln Memorial and we were greeted with ladies by the cashier. After a leisurely meal we Ubered back to the studio, picked up the rental and drove to BWI. It was an hour earlier than planned but we were both tired. I checked my bag at the Southwest counter and again was called ma’am as I checked my bag. TSA was a real breeze for me as I am TSA Pre Check cleared; no body scanner for most in that line. The ID checker was nice. He never really looked at my face but thanked me as ma’am. Likewise for the waitress in the airport restaurant she was happy to serve us and always referred to us in female terms. I was always greeting as a female the rest of the day by the parking lot attendant and even the late night grocery store checker who saw me after 15 hours dressed en femme. I know many folks knew my secret through the day but I kept my calm and poise throughout and am ecstatic to know that I can leave the house with confidence.

    Sorry, this was long but I wanted to give a little color to my “Beth does great” review. I returned to Beth knowing that there are folks in the greater Austin area who perform similar functions. However, most locals only offer a small piece of Beth’s services so you would be in the hands of 2-4 people to get the experience I had in one day. Beth is truly supportive of the cross gendered population. She is active in helping us find our way in a maze of mixed emotion and complications.

    Thanks Beth

      Cammie, I truly enjoyed working with you to create a mainstream look that helps you feel confident in public. I am so happy you have Miranda’s support and that you both enjoyed your time with me and in Washington, DC. Thank you again! Beth

    Wow. What an intense, surreal experience.

    I consider myself an occasional cross dresser, firmly in the closet. I had never worn make up or a wig. I was not even aware of transformation services until I stumbled upon Beth’s website. I was incredibly nervous to try my first transformation. However, Beth was very welcoming and a true professional. I was rather clueless, but she guided me through the entire process. Breast forms, shoes, nylons, dress, jewelry. And of course, the make up and wig. Wow.

    But more importantly we shared three hours of tremendous conversation. I am very shy but she made me feel comfortable enough to talk about my fantasies and kinks. It was a very fulfilling experience.

    As promised, I entered Beth’s home in the closet, and left the same way. Her professionalism is very much appreciated.

    If a transformation is something you have long fantasized about, I would recommend Beth to exceed your expectations.

    Thank you, Beth, for such a wonderful experience!

    As this was my first time having a makeover, I didn’t know what to expect. From the moment we arrived, my partner and I were given a warm welcome in a comforting environment. I knew we had made the right choice. I had come seeking not only a makeover, to boost my confidence in beginning my transition, but to get information on local resources, such as HRT, hair removal, wig advice and support groups. Beth not only pointed me to a local doctor, she picked up her phone and made an appointment for me right then and there! She also gave great advice on local hair removal and wig care services. She was very accommodating in tailoring my experience to my particular needs. Her knowledge and genuine care for trans individuals was impressive. I left with a smile on my face and a renewed hope in continuing my journey.

    Incredible experience. My friend and I had a terrific time. I had not seriously dressed in over fifteen years and was very rusty and learned a lot in a very short time. Elizabeth is a great instructor and an enthusiastic and accomplished photographer. She continued to inspire me during a long photo shoot with three wardrobe changes. I am very happy I went.

    This was my first Make Over and I was very nervous. Beth’s calme my fears with her soothing voice and she told me every thing she was doing. Her skill is beyond words; as she brings the beauty that has always been there out of you.
    Beth is truly an artist, from her fingers magic flows. She has such skill that she makes it look easy and feels effortless as she transform you in to someone you have only ever dreamed of!

    Beth was my photographer on May 11 this year. What a sensational experience! I have a critical eye when it comes to my appearance in photographs and I have to say Beth was patient with me. She also knew what I was looking for. She also encouraged me to explore outside my comfort zone, but without being pushy.

    Beth – thank you so much for a great day and great results!

    Beth is amazing. She provided an incredible fantasy feminization session that was over and above all my expectations. In the fantasy, Beth was my madam and was preparing me for my first day working at a brothel. When she was done dolling me up, I couldn’t believe the girl in the mirror. I never knew a slightly overweight middle aged man could be turned into such a firecracker. It was such a strange feeling to desire the person in the mirror. Believe me that Beth has the skills to turn you into your dream girl.

    After admiring myself for a long time in the mirror, Beth took me lingerie shopping. I’d need some sexy lingerie to entertain my “clients” that evening. She had called the lingerie store the day before to make sure they would be comfortable with a trans girl shopping there and trying on lingerie. I was very grateful for Beth’s attention to detail here because it helped put me mind at ease that we wouldn’t have an awkward experience. Beth helped me try on several pieces of lingerie taking a few snapshots along the way. We decided on a pink and white satin teddy trimmed with lace. Perfect for a sissy to lose her virginity 🙂

    We had to stop for gas on the way back, but Beth was super nice and added time at the end to compensate for the task. I didn’t mind though, because she had me go out and pump it. It let me have another little audience to parade my short leather skirt, off shoulder blouse, and high heels. We made it back to Beth’s studio with some time to take some more pictures which I’ll treasure forever.

    Looking forward to seeing Beth again!

    If your looking at reviews for this, chances are you know what you want, just know, so did I…. do it! It was an absolute miracle to have worked with Elizabeth. A genuine, kindred, artistic and spot on professional symphony of bringing you absolute EVERYTHING. An all bases approach to not only “saving me a lot of money making mistakes” but helping me to let go of everything that hinders who I really am. No matter what the perspective, the canvas upon which this artist strokes the brush is a masterpiece, you will never forget the angle she will weave into your soul……

    Thank you so much Beth, you changed my whole life……

    I have done a make up lesson and a makeover and photo shoot with Beth. And count her as a friend. I have nothing but the highest praise for her artistic talent, personable attention, and innate sense of how to bring the beauty out in her clients. Her attention to the slightest details ensures good results. I will definitely be back for more pictures of other looks I am anxious to try. Thanks Beth, you rock!

    In the past 18 months, I’ve had dozens of makeovers by as many artists. although I’ve never had a bad experience, there are some I eagerly return to and Beth is certainly one of those. With more than six makeovers that always include photoshoots and usually outings, I can recommend her to ANYONE, from first-timers to highly experienced, for a pleasant and magical experience. Yes, I enjoy talking to Beth- and obviously bright and balanced person, but her radiant positive energy is what’s most appealing. With Beth in mind I can honestly say, a bad day with a makeover – is waaay better than a good day without one. As Arnie said “I’ll be back….”

    I think Beth is one of the great supporters of our community! I had a complete make-over and photo shoot with her this past weekend and could not be more pleased. Professional, poised and flawless execution were the keys to the marvelous experience. She made my eyes the centerpiece of a marvelous look. Coupled with the retro ruby red lipstick she transformed me from drab to fab in record time. If you are looking for a rewarding experience, Beth is the one who can deliver! Looking and feeling pert and sexy, I went from the session to Freddy’s and had a magical time. And the photos she took are dynamic and a lasting memento of an excellent session that taught me some new tips. Five Stars! I will be back with her soon! – Robin
