    I attended my first soiree this past weekend, and it would not be possible without Elizabeth Taylor’s Makeover Service. I really enjoy myself and I met a few lovely ladies. They welcomed me with open arms and the venue was awesome. I highly recommend her service for anyone that little to no experience in makeup application (like me). She also provides a wide range of options, just checkout her website.
    As always, thank you Beth! You always take care of me.

    !!!An Amazing Experience!!!

    I first visited Elizabeth in early 2014. I think it may have been in January or February. I was quite nervous then and i was a little bit this time as well because my female friend was going to see me as Roxane, too. I felt really comfortable though because Elizabeth has a natural ability to put people at ease and you feel like you are talking to an old friend.

    She is an incredibly talented make-up artist and in addition to that she is an fantastic photographer. All of my pictures look absolutely amazing;) My friend joined me for some of the shots too and we both look stunning in the pictures!
    I feel a lot more confident and comfortable now and i’m looking to start actually going out as Roxane:) Elizabeth made that possibilty a lot easier because she told me my sizes and wrote them down during the session.

    It was an such an incredibly wonderful experience and i can’t wait to go back to see her for some tips with my makeup;)

    I was also lucky enough to get a chance to glance through her book too, which i’m hoping to purchase soon:)

    Take Great Care,
    Roxane

    I just had my second makeover experience with Beth that I did this week! It was by far the most perfect make-up application and memorable experience. She made me feel comfortable, from the very beginning. When we entered the studio, we talked and she went straight to work. She took the measurements that she needed, she helped me pick the two outfits and heels that I will use for the photoshoot. She then proceeded to help me decide which makeup would fit with the look I was trying to portray. Beth is very knowledge and in tune within the community. She is an expert photographer and gifted in makeup application. During the course of the three hours, she answered every question about the community that I had and what the DC area had to offer. After we were done she let me review the pictures and gave me copies of the pictures.
    She then took me out for my first time, completely dressed and with makeup. She took me to Freddie’s Beach Bar, and what experience that was, I have to say I was completely nervous but they where very welcoming from the start. I met a couple ladies and they were friendly and understanding since they knew that it was my first time out.
    I want to thank you Beth, you truly created a memorable experience for me. I thank you a thousand times, I personally recommend Beth, if you want a memorable makeover experience.

    Love Jessica!!!!!!!

    This is an overdue note of appreciation and endorsement for Beth Taylor and her makeover experience. Over two summer 2015 sessions in Beth’s studio, I experienced my first makeover, first time out and about, and first time strangers seeing me live! What a life changing experience!

    Beth is obviously intelligent and a versatile conversationalist. Her focus was always on bringing out the best in me – she intuitively followed my subtle feelings leading to comfort. I was so scared and nervous the first time I was shaking! She quickly got me relaxed and soon excited to try new hair styles and clothes. I loved experimenting even though not everything looked great, that was OK – it was fun! The positive comments others have made mirror my experience so I won’t repeat them. The most important Beth gave me, which I will always remember and appreciate, is the confidence I left with to continue exploring and experiencing. She launched me on a long-awaited journey and I knew I was not alone.

    If you are like I was: nervous, scared, questioning whether it was safe, and wondering if the experience and results would be pleasant…..all I can say is that it worked for me.

    I plan to see Beth again whether for a makeover or just for advice….hopefully soon.

    All of my life I knew I was different…not special, but just different. When I finally came to terms with being myself, I finally felt alive, yet I still felt like something was “still” missing. It had been staring me in the face every time I looked in the mirror…every morning, every evening; it was “him”. Not me, just some man I had become use to looking at all of my life. I never felt whole, never felt complete, never felt…beautiful. Fate, destiny, or pure luck…my life journey brought me to cross paths with Elizabeth Taylor. Before we ever met, we chatted, IM’d, and talked for hours. I got to know her, and she likewise, got to know me. After a short time, I knew that Beth was the one. I felt comfortable with her; I could tell her anything without fear of ridicule, without judgement, and in all confidence. She had become my friend. So when I finally got to meet my friend, it was as if we had known each other a life time. I tell you this because, well…because if you’re looking for just a makeover, there are many…but if you’re looking for that special person who will take the time to care, to listen, and to undertand, well, look no further. She is not just a Makeup Magician, not just an excellent photographer, but rather a strong and beautiful woman, super intelligent and funny, but mostly…a genuine and caring human being. Tell her “your’ story, she’ll listen, tell her your dreams, and she will give everything she has to make them come true! For me, visiting Beth was like going to an adult version of Disney World…may your ride never end, the lines be short, and the memories last forever!!

    Love you Beth!

    Just had to share with everyone my second makeover experience with Beth that I did this week! After the most perfect make-up application, she coaxed me into a beautiful blue-white-black colorblock dress and then outdoors to do pics I never thought I could have pulled off in a million years. Check out her site to see her having me work the street corner! 😉 Then, we were off for the night to meet Tracy Lynn and an evening of wine and cheese in Shirlington, my first time out en femme as Kayla in ages.

    Most important though, I want to share is that a visit to Makeovers with Elizabeth is so much more than just a professional transformation into a beautiful woman. Beth is not only the master of the make-up brush, but also the camera. She is a photography professional using hi-end equipment and lighting with a knowledge of the camera that is over the top. Most important though is Beth treats every client as a beautiful human being and a friend. To quote Tracy, Beth is most truly an angel put here by God to brighten the day of everyone she comes into contact. 🙂

    I did my first makeover with Beth in late April this year. She is amazing! I have done quite a few makeovers, both in traditional ‘cis’ settings like Merle Norman and with transformation artist Jodie Lynn in London and Beth is the best! First, she accommodated my schedule by arranging a special session — even though she had no openings — the evening she was doing finals because she is just that type gal. When I arrived at her place, she immediately put me at ease in her studio. She only had to ask me once if I would like to split a bottle of wine and then the fun began! I am so self-conscious that I could not present well as woman, but Beth consistently assured me that we were all body-positive in her studio. I put myself in her hands and I could not have been more happy with results! I found myself being the sexy and seductive woman I want to be and feel I am within. Beth’s make-up and transformation skills are only topped by her prowess as a photographer. Add to that her welcoming and engaging personality and you have the perfect formula for the perfect makeover!

    I had my first makeover with Beth in mid-April 2015, and it was an absolute blast. She is an amazing person, and I felt very comfortable with her starting with our email exchanges leading up to my session with her. I could tell how special Beth is based on the emails, and I truly learned a lot from her just from the three hours or so that I spent with her.

    I was absolutely thrilled with the way she made me look. I wanted to do a secretary look, and Beth had the perfect clothing available for me to wear, and I was so amazed at the final results. She is a true artist when it comes to makeup, and knew exactly what to do to maximize the look. I love the pictures, and I have gotten a lot of great feedback on my Flickr page!

    I live in the DC area and I am so glad to have found Beth. I can’t wait to book my next photoshoot with her, and there is no question that I will be repeat customer! I truly recommend Beth to anyone in our community who is looking for an understanding and compassionate person to provide guidance and advice.

    I had an appointment with Liz this past Saturday for trans pride and she did such an incredible job! I’m new to this and this was my first time going out so I wanted to look my best as to blend in as much as possible. My girlfriend was skeptical that’d I’d pass but after Liz was done my girl was floored. She kept saying how pretty I looked and felt that no one would be able to tell that I was really a man which is defintely a high compliment on her part. We walked the streets of DC for miles that night and I actually had confidence in my new skin, never thought that would be possible.

    I absolutely recommend Liz Taylor for anyone that wants to look their best, I can’t imagine anyone better in the business and she’s such a delightful person. I guarantee she’ll make you feel comfortable, relaxed and 100% satisfied with the results…you’ll also learn a great deal, she even prepares very detailed notes so you can do it yourself in the future. Thanks again, Liz!!

    I’ve visited Beth many times within the last year. She is so special and so wonderful! On my first visit she made me more beautiful than I ever thought possible, and in each following visit she continues to raise the bar. Last month, after a wonderful makeover session, Beth took me out on the town for photos “out and about” and a wonderful dinner. I never felt more beautiful and more feminine. I passed with ease and felt completely comfortable in my feminine persona.

    In every visit Beth has treated me with open kindness and full acceptance. I always feel completely at ease and now view Beth as a personal friend. She has made a huge difference in my poise and confidence as a woman. During a visit Beth goes way beyond just applying makeup – she will help you with your outfits, your presentation, and your overall transition, even if only temporary, to a woman.

    For those of you who have never been our or seen a woman, Beth will greet you will warm nonjudgmental acceptance, make you feel completely at easy, and offer you an experience you will never forget.

    She has my highest recommendation,

    WOW!!! Everything Beth advertises on her Web page is spot on. Personality, talent, and especially the ability to put you at ease are just a few of her traits. I wore an outfit that I brought with me while she applied my makeup and wig. We worked togeather to pick out colors and outfits. Looking in the mirror for the first time was just awesome. My lips and eyes were as sexy as I have ever seen them. (I asked for a sexy club come get me look). She delivered perfectly. I had several outfit and wig changes including a very sexy secretary with over the top heels, a little black dress with a sweater pulled below my shoulders, and a biker chicken look with leather skirt, a lycra strapped shirt and little.leather jacket. And I almost forgot the sexy high heel knee length boots and dark red wig. We danced to a pounding club type music and I really felt wonderful. Beth must have taken hundreds of photos. We enjoyed wine and conversation on the balcony. Some workmen walked just below the balcony and I actually wanted them to notice me. Great experience Beth and I can’t wait for another makeover and this time let’s do an outing…..Wendy

    I recently had the superb pleasure of meeting Beth and letting her apply her artistry to enable me to discover my feminine nature in a manner I have never had the confidence or skill to do on my own. By nature I am introverted and private. My home and work environments are not supportive. Penelope rarely has the freedom to emerge. An opportunity did present itself for a week in April and, despite significant trepidation, I reached out to Beth to arrange a full day session with her. To be sure this was both terrifying and thrilling for me. My expectation was Beth would get my week off to a grand start, but then it would be just Penelope, depressingly on her own. I could not have been more mistaken and I owe Beth more than words can convey. She is truly fabulous…warm, understanding, inspiring, brilliant, bold, and vibrant.

    Immediately upon meeting Beth one perceives there is something magical about her. Her engaging welcome relieves any sense of apprehension. My anxiety quickly faded as I put myself in her capable hands. Appreciating my initial vulnerability and reticence, Beth moved at a pace that Penelope was comfortable with as we transitioned from makeover to photos and then to afternoon tea and clothes shopping in Old Town. Though feminine in appearance, I was, however, still hiding, mimicking behavior, as if I were Beth’s shadow. In one fashionable shop, after Beth picked out a few nice garments, Beth changed my life with two words, “dressing room”. My uneasy protest was put to rest by Beth’s soothing reassurance and Penelope was now really out in the open in front of full length mirrors and attentive staff…and it was exhilarating. Store personnel could not have been nicer and Beth kept the momentum going like we were the best of girlfriends and all was routine. I was giddy and beaming.

    Following a change of clothes and some touch up work at Beth’s studio, we were back in Old Town enjoying dinner. I wasn’t a shadow anymore. Penelope was real and alive. Beth facilitates genuine transformations well beyond makeup and clothing.

    As my session was coming to a close, Beth invited me to join her (and others) the next night at a Delta-88 (awesome musicians) performance in DC. I could have retreated into my former shell but after my day with Beth, and all of her coaching and encouragement, I was keen to experience more. This led to newfound friendships, another makeover and shopping session with Beth, two visits to Freddies’ (one a Meet-up event), and ultimately uninhibited dancing in heels and an alluring blue dress (thanks to Beth) at another Delta-88 event.

    Penelope’s week was tremendous, all due to Beth. I’m immeasurably grateful and sincerely hope there will be future occasions for Beth to charm a smile out of Penelope.

    This past Monday evening I had a wonderful makeover and transformation at Elizabeth’s. I has flown in from NYC earlier in the day and showed up at Beth’s place in my navy blue business suit and tie. I left a a couple of hours later in a tight black pencil skirt, a silver and black top and a gorgeous Marc Jacobs leather jacket. I had silver accent jewelry and shoulder length brown with red high lights coifed and flowing hair. Elizabeth had brought out the woman in me and than took out that woman to a fun and quirky LGBT bar for karaoke and cosmopolitans. She was supportive and playful when I had difficulty walking in my sexy calf length pointy toed tight leather and VERY uncomfortable boots and even lent me a pair of her own black flats later on in the night. Her make up artistry, fashion sense, and photography skills are second to none but truly it’s her warm, welcoming, fun personality that made the experience and evening so special. She made me look and feel pretty and feminine and than brought me out so I could be that woman in the real world. The feeling of being referred to as “ladies” and “miss” and “she” by the waiter, the patrons, and others, the click of my heels on the pavement as we walked arm in arm in the streets, glancing down and seeing my feminine shadow, giggling like school girls in the car, and especially the flirty states at me from a few of the gentlemen in the bar are experiences that I will treasure and not soon forget. Elizabeth made the evening memorable and magical and I can’t wait till the next time to see where my femme journey with her will take me.

    I had my third makeover with Elizabeth and every time it simply gets better and better. The rapport I felt from the beginning has improved and I believe she knows what suits my female alter ego and what I will like. There is a real connection and it comes from Elizabeth wanting to create a memorable experience. This time with my leather dress she gave me a look I would never have considered but it was dynamic, sexy and convincing and I loved it. I had such a wonderful time. We even rechristened my alter ego to match the new spirit Elizabeth helped create, so Sophie was out and Katherine (Kate) made her appearance. Thank you so much. Next time the make up lesson. I’d love to be able to do more and with your wonderful guidance I can’t wait to take the next step on Katie’s journey. xxx

    Last Saturday, I spent about 5 hours with Beth. It was an incredible 5 hours because through the magic of Beth’s artistry and skills, I was transformed from an ugly frog into a beautiful Princess.
    Beth was simply amazing. She was patient, gentle, kind, supportive, suggestive, very knowledgeable and most of all fun. She is a wonderful make-up artist and a fantastic photographer. She has a gift when it comes to combining outfits with make-up and wigs, and then making you feel so relaxed and natural when it comes to posing for the photos. In short, Beth is just so incredibly talented. And she is a wonderful person. We chatted like 2 girls in a comfortable and easy-going way as if we’d known each other for years.
    If you want to really treat yourself this Christmas, then book a session for yourself with Beth. You will be pampered, made to feel so special, and literally transformed into a beautiful woman.
    My new year’s resolution: have more sessions with Beth so that the Gemma in me can shine out and have some more fun!

    I identify as trans, am in the very early stages of a “later-in-life” MTF transition, and lately have been obsessing quite a bit about how passable I can be. My own attempts at makeup have been very unsophisticated and ultimately unsatisfying. I was thrilled to find Beth, and decided to go for a lengthy session of makeup lessons, makeover, wardrobe consult, and photo shoot, to see if this would help ease my mind.

    What transpired exceeded my wildest imagination. Beth is a warm, welcoming person who really understands T-girls. She has a tremendous gift for hospitality that put me immediately at ease, and I found her studio to be an incredibly safe space that allowed me to really embrace and express my femininity.

    The makeover is a truly intimate thing…you sit quite close, facing one another for a couple of hours, as Beth does her magic. I felt extraordinarily comfortable as we shared a little bit of our stories…she’s the first one outside of my therapist who has ever heard this part of mine!

    Beth is so encouraging…as she progressed through the stages of the makeover, it was wonderful for me to see how pleased and genuinely excited she was with the results. I was very concerned that my masculine features could not be softened…Beth gave my spirit a lift by observing that my face has a lot of wonderful feminine features, and she did a great job highlighting them.

    For the photo shoot, I wasn’t planning on wearing anything too special…I really was wanting to know what the “everyday girl” in me looked like. But all made up, I was feeling so beautiful, and (surprisingly to me) sexy, we both agreed that “hot” would be the order of the day. Beth encouraged me to upsize my breast forms, and together we agreed that a form-fitting LBD, stockings, 5-inch heels, and a stylish-yet-edgy wig were the way to go. We put on some dance music, and the photo shoot turned into an impromptu night at the club…I was feeling my feminine spirit in a way I have only imagined, and just had an incredible time posing for the camera.

    At the end of the session, we looked through the photos together. We had the presence of mind to do “before and after” shots, which really gave me a sense of the overall affect…it was profound. Beth’s makeup artistry is such a gift…her work reveals the beauty within, and I was absolutely thrilled with what I saw.

    But I have to say, beyond beauty, what I saw in the pictures more than anything was…happiness. I wasn’t expecting that, but it was so plainly evident…to be completely uninhibited, to be able to express the woman within with no reservation, and then to see it reflected in the smile on my face and the sparkle in my eyes…I felt validated. That which I have known, deep in my soul, to be true, was confirmed. The authentic life that I crave seems ever so much more possible.

    So, to sum up visit to Beth in a sentence: One of my best days, ever!

    Can’t wait to come back. Beth, you rock!

    I am a woman in her fifties that had lost her way with makeup. I was using to same colors and makeup that I had in my 30’s and 40’s. I am not into sitting at a makeup counter in the middle of a store to get a makeover. I have many flaws including pigmentation problems. I made an appointment with Beth. When I walked into her home I felt comfortable right away. We sat down and talked about what I wanted to look like. After talking she got to work. We tried different foundation, eye, blush, and lipstick colors. Then she made up one side of my face and I did the other. The time flew by. When I walked out I felt confident and very happy with my new look. Beth is a beautiful woman inside and out. My experience was awesome. I highly recommend a makeover with Beth if you want a more beautiful you.

    I’ve spent over fifty years of my life as what is referred to today as a transgender person (secluded). When I was little I was considered a freak, called a “retard” and spent many years in child psychologist’s offices. When they made me “all better” I spent the next thirty years, sometimes denying but always hiding who I am. Still hidden, I’ve spent the last ten years in counseling learning about my true self and working through the choices I have at this late point in my life and to undo the previous forty years.

    Albeit ever so cliché, in one afternoon Beth led me to experience the person who has always lived inside me, the woman I now know I’m able to be. The makeup lesson allowed me to share a weekend with my life partner as this amazing person. Beth even got me outside for the first “real” time to take a couple of photos. Beth is really an amazing, caring, compassionate, and extremely talented person. The worst part of the whole experience … the weekend ended!

    My sincerest thanks Beth, please keep “being fabulous!”
    See you soon,

      Dianna, It was wonderful hearing about how much better Beth made you feel. Most of us have had experiences like yours. I still haven’t figured out whether being a t-girl (CD/TV/TS/TG) is a blessing or a curse. For those of us in the closet like me it is very stressful and leads to continuous internal conflicts. On the other hand the thrill of seeing yourself emerge as a beautiful woman, as Beth is so good at doing, is an unimaginable thrill that only another t-girl can understand.

      Love, Ginny Smith

    I just had another makeover with lovely Beth last night. I was absolutely amazed and thrilled with the result! I’ve been seriously dressing for about four years now and this was absolutely the best I’ve ever looked. I’ve been to see Beth several times before, and each time she does it better. Beth is a sweet and intelligent woman who not only can make anyone look incredible, but she is also a fun friend who puts you at easy and turns a makeover into a warm and welcoming visit. I recommend her to any t-girl interested in looking her best. New girls who are just now working up the nerve to come out should see her. She is totally accepting and will immediately put you at ease. Thanks so much Beth.

    I visited Beth for my second makeover. We talked in advance about looks and she had everything planned. While I was being made up i was in a long black and white dress which was simply gorgeous to wear. She took my on to her balcony and it was nice to be out in the open as Sophie. From there it was the highlight of the day which was to dress in a wedding dress. it was a delight. Wonderful to wear, wonderful to walk in and thanks to Beth’s wonderful photography skills I have a wonderful series of photos to remember the day. Just as i thought we were done, Beth suggested a wedding night look and offered me a skimpy nightie for the final set of pictures. My make up was so wonderful, she made a fairly ordinary man a really glamorous and passable girl and the wig was just perfect for my look and my coloring. Add to Beth’s natural empathy and sense of fun. it was a wonderful few hours of escapism. We have talked since – more plans for Sophie and I’m so excited i can’t wait.

    I had never had a makeover and was coming into town on business and I saw Elizabeth’s site. I called Elizabeth and asked her about makeovers. She was very nice and explained everything. I came to her studio and she transformed me into a beautiful woman. I looked in the mirror when she was done and was mesmerized on how wonderful job that she did. I was so happy. We then did the photo shoot and I was beaming I was so happy on how the experience was. She then took me to Freddy’s and it was my first time out dressed and everyone there welcomed me and made me feel so comfortable. I had sooooo much fun. If you ever get a chance to have Elizabeth do a makeover for you I would definitely recommend it. Thank you again Elizabeth.

    Earlier this week I had my first makeover with Beth and can only echo the high praise offered by her many other clients. Her combination of technical skill, enthusiasm, and empathy is truly unique. The warm, positive attitude reflected on her blog is exactly what she presents in person. I am deeply grateful for the wonderful experience with Beth and look forward to another appointment soon. Beth, thank you so much!

    I recently had the pleasure of meeting Miss Beth in her home studio, I have been dressing off and on for most of my life and always felt ashamed of it. I only bought bedroom-type items since there was no way I was ever going out in public dressed like a woman. Then a month ago I was contacted by some other girls and went for a visit. This gave me the confidence to look for Miss Elizabeth Taylor. I remembered seeing an ad for her services at some point and finally located her.

    I am not exaggerating when I say my visit with her changed the course of my dressing life. I never, ever thought I could be made reasonably passable but I was wrong. She did it. She explained what make-up she was using and why and listened and made me feel sooo comfortable with being a man who wanted to dress and look and act like a woman. I still can’t get over the results.

    I actually drove to Freddies, held my breath, and walked up the sidewalk to have brunch there. I had so much more confidence walking back. Thank you Miss Beth.

    I have had two makeovers with Beth, and I don’t have enough superlatives to describe the experience, or how she made me look!

    Beth really understands trans women and celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of those of us who don’t fit the standard gender binary. She creates a super safe space in which you feel free to embrace your femininity and let the woman inside shine.

    For those who have not been out in public yet, or are just starting to explore their feminine sides, a visit to Beth will be a wonderful experience. She is fun, encouraging, has great advice on creating you look, and is completely non-judgemental. She totally respects your privacy and understands that a lot of us are not ready to be “out.” You will learn a lot about how to apply makeup, can buy what you need in privacy, and you will be AMAZED at how pretty you can look. Be prepared to cry a little when you look in the mirror, it can be a moving experience to see the woman you always wanted to look like looking back at you.

    If you are an experienced girl, you will have a blast hanging out with Beth, learn a bunch of tips and techniques, and see the latest colors and products to help you look great.

    I would also highly recommend her to any cis (non-trans) woman who wants to freshen up her look. If she can achieve such beautiful effects with women with beard shadows, big jaws, and brow ridges, just think what she can do for a woman with out a Y chromosome.

    Beth is also a strong champion of the trans community, and she is a very active advocate. She respects all trans people, no matter where you are on the spectrum.

    Within minutes of meeting Beth for the first time, I felt like I had a close friend and confidante. She is so much fun to be with!

    I can honestly say that a make over with Beth literally has the potential to be a life changing experience.

    So I contacted Beth and asked her if she could make me look like a sissy little girl. Wow. What a pro. With a cute blonde wig decked out with pink ribbons in my sissy pigtails, Beth, was the consumate professional. She is engaging, gorgeous, personable and makes everyone feel at ease. I looked like the perfect sissy little girl in my pink satin short dress, ruffled panties, white stockings and 4 inch white baby doll shoes. Her makeup expertise is beauty in action. She is an artist and if anyone ever wants the perfect makeup to look fab, you need to see Beth.

    This has been a long time coming but i wanted to leave a review of the wonderful afternoon i spent with Beth. When I arrived she had me pick out some underwear and quickly fitted me into a body shaper and a bra with my boobs in place. She then surprised me by asking me to pick a fancy dress outfit to wear while she did my makeup. I flicked through her lovely selection before opting for something completely out of character but Beth helped me into the gorgeous pink dress and collar and cuffs and lo and behold i was a bunny girl, fulfilling a long held fantasy.

    While Beth worked on my makeup we chatted and talked and she got me to open up about some of my experiences and we discussed how things might unfold with her in the future. it was an exciting chat with left me with butterflies in my tummy.

    When I was done – she had the bunny girl strike several poses and was very gracious in telling me how lovely i looked. We then made a couple of choices from her wardrope and played dress up for a while.

    It was a lovely, lovely time. My drab life doesn;t left me experiment or visit as often as i would like but Beth was so lovely and open and generous that i cannot wait to return.

    Love

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me start my new year off the right way! You were so kind and you made me feel so at ease being there for my makeover. You even got me to feel so good about myself as a “woman” that I wore my dress and other things to a special persons house to surprise him, and he was very surprised! Thank you for walking me to my car to make me feel even more at ease!
    Now I must say that there were plenty of chances for you to laugh at me, like trying to get that shaper on, but you never did, you rolled with it and made me feel so welcome and comfortable! I absolutely loved the selection of clothes, shoes and wigs that you had.
    I look forward to more visits to you for makeovers and hopefully even a night out since you have given me a new found confidence in myself. You are the best!

    A note to anyone that is worried about going to get their first makeover, leave your worries and doubts behind you and put on your prettiest panties and sexiest bra and go get the makeover, you will NOT regret it! Elizabeth is the BEST!

    Thank you!!!

    I recently enjoyed having my first transformation with Elizabeth and had an amazing time. She was a gracious and entertaining hostess, carefully listened to what I hoped to achieve with my look, and presented me with a lot of exciting options. During the whole process, she explained how to best apply makeup to suit my tastes and gave me helpful tips on how to put together outfits in general.

    While it was a very informative learning experience, our whole session had a party vibe to it — we had excellent music playing in the background and I reveled in the moment and danced my heart away as Elizabeth took pictures and/or prepared for the next step in the transformation.

    What made my first time even more wonderful was how Elizabeth firmly impressed upon me her commitment to the LGBT and other diverse communities. It’s enheartening to meet individuals determined to empower and celebrate groups that have historically been underrepresented. She’s a remarkable person and I strongly encourage anyone interested enough to see her to do so — you will have an incredible time!

    I recently went for my first makeover/transformation with Elizabeth Taylor. I was nervous to say the least but needed to have this done. From the moment I first contacted her I felt at ease and knew I had made a good choice in contacting her. Elizabeth was extremely supportive. The day of my scheduled appointment I arrived at her location dressed casually enfemme with no makeup. Elizabeth met me at her door and from that moment I knew I had made a great decision. She spared no time putting me at ease and getting to know me. As we procceded with the total deluxe makeover she explained each and every step and its purpose in helping me look more feminine. By the end of the makeover session I really felt I had learned a lot from her regarding makeup basics. Next came the wardrobe selection for the photo shoot. being I had wanted a seductive “slutty” look Elizabeth helped me pick out the appropriate clothes. Once the look was attained the actual photo shoot began. Being more comfortable behind a camera than in front of one, Elizabeth immediately started putting me at ease and coaching me to get “the look” I wanted to achieve for my photos. As the time progressed and flew by my nervousness evaporated. She helped me to open up. I can not say enough good words about Elizabeth. Her warmth radiates from her and her talent for helping one achieve their look is amazing. I am so grateful to have met Elizabeth. She is an amazing talented individual and I am anxiously looking forward to another session with her to try a different look. I will definitely be back!

    From the moment the door opened, Miss Taylor was a delightful, inspirational, intelligent, creative artist and encourager. What a fun time I had dressing, but even more so talking about all things important to me, including issues of gender and sexuality and my own lifelong journey. She is not only a transformation professional; she is also a wise and caring counselor. As Miss Taylor worked her magic, she seemed oblivious to time, unhurried and really present with me, and happy to make me feel and look happy. I was stunned when I finally saw Leanne, seeing a somewhat attractive if aging sexy woman. Never did Miss Taylor imply at all that I might not be the most perfect woman, never did she comment with anything but positive words.

    I had planned an outing after dressing but was initially reluctant to do so. With her encouragement, I decided to go for it, so we went out to a club where I was accepted fully, and where I had the time of my life. I even had a guy buy me a drink! Miss Taylor was careful to keep an eye on me, to help me freshen up makeup when necessary, and to simply enjoy being out in a dress and heels.

    I will return to see her again. She is wonderful.

    I got to look in the mirror today and truly see Meagan for the first time. It was and still is the most amazing feeling I can think of, and I can’t thank you enough for helping bring it about. Like a lot of girls, I tend to look in the mirror and nitpick the little things that I dislike about my body… but today was different. I looked in the mirror and saw a beautiful woman staring back at me, and truly fell in love with her. This is who I shall always see when I look in the mirror now, and it’s the best feeling.

    I can’t wait until I can go back and have another girl’s day with my wife and Beth. Maybe this time you’ll get to come out to lunch with us.

    A makeover at the hands of Elizabeth Taylor is more than the foundation creams or eye makeup. It is more than the lipsticks or clothes. For me it was the first time an important part of me felt confident and complete. Long before the brushes ever came out or before the colors began to be applied Beth Taylor had already started working on my transformation. Her enthusiasm and joy immediately set me at ease and reinforced in myself that this was something that I wanted and needed.
    As Beth began to work her magic on my exterior I felt years of hidden anguish, frustration, and shame being lifted as we talked about my past, my desires for the future, and most importantly who I thought Kim was. The experience was as spiritually cathartic and the physical transformation was total. I felt and looked pretty. Most importantly I was proud I was pretty. I felt happy, calm, and graceful. These are not traits that are usually associated to someone like me who doggedly works in the daily grind.
    Beth worked patiently with my and our time flew by. As I transformed from a scared and nervous drab person into a confident and beautiful woman I began to fully embrace and appreciate this side of myself that I had tried to suppress for so long. Beth effortlessly surrounded me with hope, comfort, compassion, and friendship like a warm blanket on a cold windy day.
    What made this experience different was that after the make came off and I returned to my “other” life the feeling of belonging and beauty remained, where in the past a wave of guilt would rush in. I found myself feeling happy and complete, like I had finally found a lost friend. My time with Beth was transformational on such a deep level that it is almost ironic to discuss the superficial aspects of the pampering you get at her hands.
    Beth Thank you for the friendship, the kind understanding, and the enthusiasm you generously shared with me and with so many others.
    Love

My only regret about that day is that I didn’t take Beth up on her offer to go to lunch while I presented myself as Kerri. It has been a fantastic six months since then and any time I can get made over by Beth and/or present as Kerri are some of the most fun times that I have.

    I am so very glad that I finally worked up the courage to take a few baby steps outside my long-closeted, off and on, crossdressing and arrange an appointment with Beth. She is simply amazing! Beth’s very skilled at makeup and creating the right combination of clothing, hair, shaping etc. Since this was my first complete makeover, I wanted to make sure I really looked and felt like Diana. After about an hour of putting everything on, and having Beth so thoughtfully explain how she was applying the makeup, it was time for the big reveal. I had intentionally positioned myself so I could not see how I looked at every step in the process. When I nervously walked over to the mirror full made up in my classy sweater/skirt/heels combo I did not quite know what to expect.

    Wow!

    I cannot accurately describe the feeling. But suffice to say I was amazed, delighted, and moved. Finally seeing on the outside the glamorous girl I had for so long kept hidden on the inside was profound, exciting, and absolutely electric.

    None of that would have been possible with just technical skill and an eye for picking out accessories to match an outfit. By far the best thing about Beth is how open, accepting, and affirming she is. I was initially very nervous about sharing a long hidden side of myself with someone else. Her upbeat attitude, infectious enthusiasm, and complete acceptance put me at ease right away. To put it another way: she not only made me look like a beautiful woman, she made me feel like a beautiful woman. The whole experience was fantastic. I highly recommend Beth to anyone looking to see how fabulous they can truly be!

    I am writing this to tell you about my time with Beth. Let first tell you that she is an amazing woman. She is the sweetest and kindest person I’ve ever met. I had an awesome time with her.
    This was my first time cross dressing and my first time telling and opening up to someone about my cross dressing. I was so nervous when I arrived at her studio. We talked and she explained what the process was of turning me into Jennifer. I started to feel more relaxed. I started to have fun putting on the shape wear, breast forms, bra, panties, stocking and shoes. I tried on different wigs until we found the right one. We picked out this cute black dress and pretty silver jewelry to go with it. As she put on my makeup she explained everything about the makeup. While my makeup was being put on we got to talk. I really opened up to her. I had her add on the fake eyelashes and French tip press on nails. I highly recommend the nails. To me it just finishes the look. When she was all done, I finally got to see myself as Jennifer. I had the biggest smile on my face when I saw myself.:) I can’t even begin to describe how I felt. The only thing I can say is that I felt so pretty.
    It was now picture time. We started off on the balcony. I was feeling so relaxed and comfortable as Jennifer and with Beth that we went all the way outside to take pictures with trees in the background. We had a lot of fun taking those pictures. I decided to add on some extra time. I did an outfit change. We picked out this fun skirt and cute top. I also changed shoes, jewelry and put on a different shade of lipstick. We had so much fun taking those pictures. After that we sat down and looked at all the pictures and commented on the ones we liked. Our time was up and I had to go change from Jennifer to my male self.
    I’m definitely going back to see her. She had so many great outfits to try on. I also am going back to her for help with makeup, shopping and anything else I need or have to do to become Jennifer. I hope by me telling you about my time will encourage you to see her and I’ll quote Beth “To being fabulous!”

    I had a wonderful session with Beth a few weeks ago! I’ve been dressing for just a few years and never have had a professional makeover. When Beth opened her business I realized the time had finally come. Beth greeted me at the door and immediately made me feel at ease and made it clear that this was only about bringing out the best in Ginny. She patiently and thoroughly explained her steps as she really did bring out the best in me. I love the results! Beth knows her makeup, is fun to visit with. I just can’t wait to see her again,

    Thanks so much,

    Ginny

    Had a makeover session with the wonderful Beth in late July. I was visiting DC from the UK, and had an afternoon to spare. Beth was simply amazing – everything was very professional, from organising the appointment to making sure every trace of make up was gone before I left. She isn’t just a friendly and fun woman to spend time with she is a fantastic artist and managed to turn a very unattractive, middle aged, fat man, into a lovely lady and had some great advice and tips on make up too.

    Beth also really understands our community and the wide spectrum of trans-people, and within seconds you feel comfortable and at home.

    I have been to a few makeover services, and Beth is amazing value for such a relaxing, friendly and professional service and I know she is my regular destination every time I am in DC.

    Thanks so much Beth!

    Love,

    All I can say is that I’m beyond blessed and fortunate to have met Beth. Back in early April 2013, I was unable to attend a makeover party that Beth hosted and sent a message with my regrets about not being able to attend on the meetup.com group chat. It was then that Beth offered a one on one makeover session, an offer which I gladly accepted. You see, I had been wanting a makeover for SO long but NEVER had the gumption to go into a makeup store or to the counter at a department store and get a makeover. This was the perfect scenario; a makeover in a private, relaxed setting.

    Upon arriving at Beth’s makeover studio, I was warmly and graciously greeted as Kerri and told that I was going to be beautiful at the end of the makeover. Beth’s greeting was confirmation of my thought process through email messages that we had exchanged that she was fun, intelligent AND passionate about making girls beautiful.

    I had brought some clothes to change into so that I could be more “Kerri” and then the makeover began. It seemed to take a while and there were a LOT of preparatory steps, especially cleansing of my face, before the color was added to my “canvas”, if you will. It was clear, however, that Beth knew exactly what she was doing and she was very professional. As the color on my eyes began to be applied, Beth was smiling and said that I looked really pretty. When she applied mascara to my lashes Beth said that my eyes, “popped”. Then the lip color, blush and highlight powder were applied and I was finally allowed to look in the mirror and see myself transformed. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy and overcome with positive emotion that I was. The end result was, in my eyes, SO beautiful that I almost cried. The only reason that I didn’t is because it would have ruined an hour and a half of work and an amazing makeover. I felt so radiantly beautiful that I was ready to make my debut as Kerri by walking around Beth’s community which we did. As a matter of fact, after we had walked about twenty feet or so and I felt like I was floating, I mentioned that I was prepared for as long a walk as Beth desired. It was a walk that lasted a good 45 minutes or so and included walking along the main road and not just the interior of her community.

    I have attended several makeover parties that Beth has hosted since April and had the blessing of being made over by Beth close to a dozen times. Each time she has perfected my look and made me absolutely beautiful. She has also helped make my skin look younger by presenting products to me that help my skin stay strong and youthful looking. I’ve had the confidence to apply my makeup in the last three months three times and expect that my confidence will continue to grow with Beth’s coaching and enthusiasm.

    Suffice it to say, if you are a girl or even a “girl” in the northern Virginia area and have had hesitations about getting a makeover, you can set aside any fears that you won’t look radiantly beautiful after a makeover with Beth. I have seen the before and after results with my own eyes with other “girls” and was was so happy for the “girls” that they were ecstatic with their look. Here’s to looking fabulously beautiful. Thank you VERY much Beth.

    Sincerely,

    Kerri

    Beth is such an amazing person. I am a closeted crossdresser and with Beth’s help we were able to shine light on my new persona, Eva.

    Admittingly, I was terribly nervous. Nobody, aside from myself, has known that I am an active crossdresser. My back story is very similar to other crossdressers, My knowledge of my feminine self did not extend past what I was able to steal from my older sisters wardrobe. The idea of a makeover seemed very distant. After 4 years without trying on a pair of panties, I decided I needed to revisit my favorite pastime.

    What an experience! Even now, the entire experience seems very surreal. I had only dreamed of becoming Eva in the past. Beth is extremely talented. She provides instruction throughout, and it’s very obvious by her amazing smile that she thoroughly enjoys the process. I had never worn heels, much less a wig however she had many to choose from. I was quite surprised at how good I looked. For too long I had always seen myself as a guy in a skirt, today provided me with a new outlook. I can be quite beautiful! Beth is an artist.

    We had amazing conversation about a wide range of topics. After getting over the fact that I was dressed as a girl, things lightened up. I did not once question Beth’s sincerity, she is quite dedicated to helping girls like me realize their potential. She mentioned that she has, ‘the best job ever’ because she ‘allows people to fulfill their dreams’. She fulfilled my dreams today, and I am quite certain I will be visiting her again in the future.

    This was a very big step for me and Beth made it very easy. She has inspired me, and I will be exploring this side of myself further. Next step: Make-up party with other TG/CD’s. Beth told me all about her events and I am looking forward to attending them!

    I just recently had my first makeover with Beth which was also happened to be my first makeover ever. I’ve been dabbling with crossdressing over the years, but wanted to take things to the next level. I was terribly excited and nervous before hand, but eager to learn.

    During the 5 hours I spent with her, I could not have felt more comfortable and welcome! I felt at ease in her studio and we started by just chatting and then doing a little show and tell of the items I brought with me. I could tell right away that she was very passionate about her work and crossdressers. We continued chatting throughout and she made me feel very comfortable by understanding my interests and feelings. She taught me a ton about makeup application and can’t wait to try out what I learned. She also had quite a collection of clothes, shoes, wigs, and accessories, so, with a little helpful guidance from Beth, I was able to supplement what I brought with me for a complete makeover.

    I was truly amazed by my transformation and was practically giddy with happiness. We only had enough time for a couple outfits and she snapped a bunch of photos while I awkwardly attempted to pose. I had a lot of fun and even got the approval of one of her friends which was a major rush. Originally, I was not planning to wear my things out, as I have never been out in public before while dressed up (except once at night to a fetish club). But, her makeover made me feel confident enough to step out in the open for the first time. What a thrill!

    So, I am very grateful that I found such an amazing resource so close to me. I can’t wait to have another session soon and eventually work up enough courage to join one of her outings with the gurls. Beth is a true champion and friend of the LGBT and crossdresser communities!
