My Barbie client came back for another makeover session last night with her genetic girl (GG) friend, “Sleeping Beauty.” I give the GG the nickname Sleeping Beauty, because she is absolutely gorgeous but usually doesn’t wear makeup, clips her hair back in a tomboy style, and rarely wears dresses. Barbie and her genetic girl (GG) friend, “Sleeping Beauty” got dolled up in “blown-out,” over-the-top style per Barbie’s insistence. Then we had girl time with a couple other girls in my living room.

Barbie selected this look from Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistible" video to inspire Sleeping Beauty's look.

This time Barbie started off in a sexy secretary look before changing into her ultra form fitting red dress. Barbie has asked me about a waist cincher and this time she agreed to try on a “Slim Shaper” corset, which reduced her waist by 2 to 3 sizes immediately. With her waist

pulled in and red dress donned, she couldn’t stop looking in the mirror at her hourglass figure. “Now I understand the appeal of a corset party!” she said. Barbie sent me an edited photo for me to post (left).

Sleeping Beauty is stunning!

Barbie requested that Sleeping Beauty be given a Robert Palmer “Simply Irresistible” inspired-look and finish off the look with messy hair. Sleeping Beauty agreed to Barbie’s request and the results were simply stunning! Check out Sleeping Beauty’s photo, and let me know what you think!

Having a Blast with Barbie!

Every crossdresser wants something a little different from a makeover: more passable, glamour, natural look, and Barbie. Yes, Barbie! One of my current clients loves looking “a little trashy” and wanted to go for a Barbie look. I scoured the images on Google of Barbie dolls and Barbie makeup styles and decided on a Barbie makeup look: smoky eyes with light pink on the eyelid.

The Makeup Look: I used Pale Pink cream eye shadow on the lid, Beach Blonde cream eye shadow on the highlight, and Black Pearl mineral eye shadow of the crease. I used the smudger brush with the Black Pearl to create a smoky eye look. We finished off Barbie’s eyes with black eyeliner, Lash Primer, and Ultimate Mascara. For lips, we went for a touch dramatic, outlining her lips with Spiced Tea lip liner to make them a touch larger, and filling in with lip liner. Then we added the bright pink Hibiscus Lip Stick and Pink Sateen Lip Gloss. We used the Translucent loose powder to set her makeup.

The Hair: We used a long blonde wig with a touch of black streaks from my collection. The hair is a touch wavy and looks great on Barbie with it over one shoulder. This is definitely not the wig to wear if the goal is to be passable!

The Clothes: Barbie already owned a bright pink and back miniskirt and a lacy black top with 3/4 length sleeves. We added a black, stretchy belt, and a one-of-a-kind teal necklace. She donned black tights with a small pattern on them and black pumps. Super sexy!

The Barbie Attitude: As the makeover progressed, Barbie’s mood and presentation began to change to match her outward image. She became more flirty and into girl talk. She sauntered down the hall with confidence, one foot in front of the other, hips swaying. She flipped her hair over one shoulder and looked back at me, perfectly posed for the camera. She leaned against the door frame, embodying her flirty personality.

Barbie tried on a couple of other wigs and outfits, which she promptly declared “Soccer Mom” because of the comparatively conservative and flattering bob cut. And just as quickly as the wig change, she changed to present more as her version of Soccer Mom, looking cute and sexy but much more subdued than Barbie. I was thrilled when Soccer Mom changed back into Barbie for girl talk and wine downstairs with another genetic girl (GG) and me. I loved the Barbie girl time and was a touch bored by Soccer Mom in comparison. I can’t wait to visit with Barbie again and find out what other type of look she wants!

Makeup and Corset Party plus After-Party!

Last week I held a makeup and corset party for trans-ladies and allies. My standard makeover party has focused on skin care and makeup using Mary Kay products and teaching girls how to apply their makeup. This party had another core theme: body shapers.

Girls began arriving an hour early to get fitted for corsets and panty shapers to give them a beautiful hourglass look and rounded derriere. The Ardyss shapers gave immediate results, flattening tummies, pulling in waists by 2-3 sizes, rounding the buttocks, and creating a beautiful, feminine figure. The girls wore the shapers throughout the entire makeup party and were definitely disappointed to take them off at the end of the night.

After we had all put on our makeup and enjoyed apple pie, hummus and pita, all six of us decided to go to Freddie’s Beach Bar (http://freddiesbeachbar.com/) in Crystal City including the girl who had never been out of her house dressed before! We strolled into Freddie’s with confidence and sat at a large hightop table near the bar. Another couple of friends joined us and we totally had fun chilling with our group of the evening until the lights came on and we returned to our homes.

This particular group of girls totally clicked with each other. The girls were super affirming, supporting, and accepting of each other. I loved that they helped build each other’s confidence to go out in public to Freddie’s.

To another fabulous evening!
