Full Reopening of Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor, effective August 5, 2020!

Hurray! Montgomery County is letting makeup artists go back to work as of 05 AUG 2020. I am so excited to see you again in person for makeup artistry, total makeovers, and more at Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor! All of my virtual services are still available along with my full makeover menu for in-person visits. I am really excited see you all again and help you express and embrace your femininity.

I’ll be taking extra safety measures to help protect us from COVID-19. We will both need to wear face masks when we are within six feet of each other except that you may remove your mask while I apply your makeup. And I’ll be checking your temperature before you come in to help reduce the risk to everyone. I have been taking my temperature daily to help protect you as well. If you are feeling sick, please contact me to reschedule your appointment even if you are within the 48-hour window before your appointment.

Here are the details:

1. As always, I see clients by appointment only and do not allow walk-ins. My business is not open to the public.

2. Outings and Fantasy Services: Please contact me to discuss your outing or fantasy ideas before you book. Freddie’s Beach Bar is open Wednesday to Sunday but all clubs in the area are closed. Dine-in alcohol sales end at 10 p.m. in Montgomery County, MD. Limited retail stores are open and most are not allowing clothing to be tried on in the store. Some retail stores require an appointment in order to shop. Makeup testers at MAC, Sephora, and other makeup stores/counters are not available to help with color matching. Museums are closed.

As always, you are required to contact me before booking a fantasy appointment to discuss your ideas.

3. Cleanliness: I will be cleaning high-touch surfaces such as chairs, handrails, counters, bathrooms, and faucets with an EPA-approved cleanser after every appointment. I will be allowing additional time between appointments to facilitate this.

Clothing will be washed between clients. Silicone items like breast forms and hip/butt pads will be washed with soap and water. Corsets will be spritzed with rubbing alcohol. New wig caps will be worn with all wigs as always. As always, you are welcome to bring your own wardrobe and mix-and-match with mine. Masks will be worn during the dressing process.

4. Masks are Mandatory: If we are within six feet of each, we both are required to wear masks except when I’m applying your makeup when you may remove yours. I will be wearing a mask while I apply your makeup to help protect us both. At greater than six feet such as for photography or socially distanced hang out time/feminine deportment, you may remove your mask. You will need to provide your own mask.

5. Temperature Taken at Arrival: When you arrive, I will be taking your temperature with an infrared forehead thermometer. If your temperature is at 100.4 F or above, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. You will also be asked about your recent possible exposure to COVID-19. If you are not feeling well, please contact me to reschedule your appointment even if you’re inside the 48-hour cancellation window. (Guidelines from Professional Photographers of America). Be prepared to answer the following:

  • How are you feeling?
  • Have you had a cough or any flu-like or COVID symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms with the last 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?

I updated my makeover menu on August 6, 2020 to reflect my return to full operations!

Giselle describes her look as “suburban housewife.” Here she pairs a Ralph Lauren duster with a blouse and jeans from NYDJ.

There’s nothing quite like a glass of Pinot Noir on the front porch to cap off the night.

Giselle and I love good wine with good friends.

My New Maryland Makeup Studio is Ready!

My New Maryland Makeup Studio is Ready!

Hi everyone! My new makeup studio in Cabin John, Maryland, is ready, and I absolutely love it! I saw clients Saturday and Sunday in it, and we just had a blast.

On Saturday, I led a makeup lesson for two trans-women in a demonstration format. I applied makeup to my face, and they copied my technique with my feedback. After that, I took photos of them in our front living room and on the back deck and stairs. So fun! If you’re interested in a session with a friend, just let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll help you choose the best package

My Sunday client has been to see me several times over the past year, and she was ready to meet some other girls in the community. So after her Total Makeover and photoshoot, my wife, Giselle, and I hosted an “outing” experience at our place with three friends for a small cocktail party. If you’re a repeat client and want to meet other girls, let me know and I can arrange an outing on the town or in-home.

Here are photos of my new makeup studio. Watch for my wardrobe and photography studio pics in a later post.

Website updated with Cabin John details!

Hi everyone! I’ve updated my website and booking site with my Cabin John, MD, information. I’m super excited to start seeing clients this Friday at my new location. Giselle and I are hard at work setting up the new studio spaces, and I’m impressed with how things are shaping up.

My schedule for September and October are starting to fill up, so I suggest booking soon if you’d like to get in a Halloween makeover, a DC 17th Street high-heel race outing, or a fall foliage shoot.

If you have hotels to recommend in Bethesda, upper Northwest DC, or Tyson’s Corner, I’d love to hear them and why they worked well for you. I’d also love to hear your favorite places to dine and grab a drink in Bethesda. My mailing address for money order deposits is still in Alexandria, VA, for now, so that’s intentional, but if you find anything else I need to update, I’d love to hear about it.

I’m so excited to show you all the new spaces and explore my new neighborhood with you all! Stay tuned for info on my open house and birthday party on Nov. 4!

Moving to Gorgeous Studio in Cabin John, Maryland!

I’m so excited! I’m making a huge upgrade to my makeover and photography studio by consolidating my Alexandria and Baltimore locations and setting up shop in a huge Arts & Crafts house in Cabin John, MD!

This 2700 sq. ft house on 3/4 acre has so many gorgeous areas, inside and out, for natural light photography plus I’ll have room for seamless backgrounds and strobes. I’ll even have a designated area for enjoying my fantasy furniture. I will have free, unlimited off-street parking in my long driveway and a private, discreet, back entrance. Of course, you’re welcome to come up the front walk, enter through the front door, and enjoy time on the porch swing!

And the location is so convenient! I will be right off the I-495 beltway at the Cabin John/American Legion Bridge over the Potomac River and about halfway between Tyson’s Corner Mall (amazing shopping!!!) in Virginia and Bethesda in Maryland.

SCHEDULE

July 18: Baltimore location closed.

August 20-31: Closed for vacation.

Sept. 11-19: Closed for the move from my Alexandria studio & home to Cabin John, MD. Alexandria location closes.

Sept. 20: Open for business in Cabin John, MD! See you there!
